The brief was 'a sign of the times' so as you can imagine there was a lot of subjects required to be covered meaning a lot of imagery to fit in - a tall order to say the least... anyway being one to rise to a challenge I dived in head first & the end results seem to have paid off.

The ArkI was invited to take part in the Ark project earlier in the year.
ARK the book, is out now - curated by Argentine design company DGPH & published by IdN. The idea was to invite a selection of illustrators and designers from across the planet to each illustrate an animal from their native country to be 'saved' in the ark & create an illustrated animal 'bible'.
The book is packed full of animals from each continent of the planet visualised in a plethora of styles. For The Ark I chose the Puffin representing Scotland. (The stag was already taken!)
The book is out next month & will be followed by a series of exhibitions around the world - watch this space...Buy the book here.

Noise of ArtI have 2 pieces in the East End Arts Club group show 'Noise of Art'. It should be a pretty interesting show as all artists had to use 12" vinyl records as their canvas.
The show runs from 3rd - 20th September,East End Arts Club, Swanfield Yard, 2b Swanfield Street, London, E2 7DS.
Also see my photoset 'The Making of Records' on Flickr.

Happy New (Tax) Year!
If only doing tax returns was slightly more enjoyable... Here's something to cheer you up. The new 'if you could' book is finally finished. This year in the form of a diary running April - April. Each Illustrator was asked "if you could do anything tomorrow, what would it be?" and each week of the diary is a different designer's reply to that question. My contribution adorns week 44 'stop the rain'.
It's a lovely collection of illustration and graphics all in the if you could trade mark red, gray & black colour scheme. Visit the If you could website to find out more.

Happy New Year!
So is everyone full of New Years resolutions then? I know I've broken half of mine already! Hoping for lots of exciting stuff to happen this year illustration wise...
I got a design selected a little while ago for the new 'if you could' book - which this time is in the form of a diary. For those unfamiliar with the format everyone is ask the question 'if you could do anything tomorrow what would it be?' and asked to respond with a visual answer. The diary should be out very soon... I know the guys were having some technical problems with printing but it will be available on their website soon.
