Self-Portrait as a Cake

The Battenberg Bommer!

Computing Which?

A piece about networking PCs and Macs - for the Jan 2010 issue of Computing Which?.

The Art Director, Mark Massey, himself a very talented photographer, wanted a generally muted image so that the two logos stood out. I chose a soft sepia palette.

Daily Mail - Autumn

A piece for Saturday 7th November's Weekend magazine gardening tips section.

Christmas on Cheshire St, e2

Here's my design for the late night shopping on Cheshire St, London E2 - just off the top end of Brick Lane.

The design is based on Czech gingerbread or speculaas moulds. I was keen to avoid the more obvious seasonal clichés and wanted something with more of a Anglo-European look than the dominant and all-pervasive US traditions that bombard us.

Tweed Cyclng Club

A design I was asked to produce by Jack Thurston, friend and founder/ secretary of the Tweed CC.
We are currently in the process of getting these letterpress printed onto heavy grey stock by my friend and fellow Walthamstovian Stephen Kenny - - check out his site.

Café Gallery Projects - Baker's Dozen

A flyer I was asked to design for a forthcoming show at the Café Gallery in Southwark Park, the fourth in a series curated this year by Liz Murray and Clare Goodwin.

The title text is Braggadacio - I love the way the number 13 has here created a very convincing B for BAKER'S DOZEN!

The preview is Sunday 8 November, the weekend after next. See you there.

Illustration Friday - "Flying" #3

Another image created for IF*

This time P L Travers formidable nanny Mary Poppins, flying through the sky on the East Wind.

I read the books as a kid and loved them - much better and madder and somehow darker than the Disney adaptation. Check them out. And check out the lady who wrote them - an amazing lady who lead an incredible life.

The image was created using an edding 1800 profipen 0.3 and brush and ink, coloured up and composited in PS.
