SugarlandAs a recent personal project I've created these festive characters each with a different wintery & christmas themed hat. These candy coated illustrations inspired by vintage christmas decorations from the 60s & 70s & Phil Spector type Christmas songs will certainly be bringing good tidings to you and your kin!I've made the designs into a set of limited edition art print/cards ideal to give to that special someone under the mistletoe or as an unusual stocking filler. Each design is an edition of 100 signed and numbered. Available to buy upon request.
We wish you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!
Bedtime StoriesGerman family & lifestyle magazine Nido recently commissioned me to do these 2 illustrations for their December edition. The images accompany a short story by Florian Simbeck.The story which roughly translates as 'The Boy Who Wasn't there' is about a little kid who can't sleep and his dad - too busy with work to read him any more stories - tells him if he just lays there long enough he will eventually 'be gone' 9 as in gone to sleep )Being a little boy with a huge imagination he worries that he will actually disappear so has to investigate the other people & animals in his house sleepin. In the end both the boy & dad both fall fast asleep & the only place they have 'gone' is to dreamland. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

Stocking Filler
As this years seasonal mail-out Agency Rush asked it's artists to decorate a festive stocking... my design was influenced by Christmas ballets such as Swan Lake & the Nutctacker.

A recent fun commission I had was to create a pop-up Christmas card for attorney firm Venner Shipley. Apart from sending season's greetings the card also had to notify clients of the company moving 'home' & what better way to illustrate these subjects than an ice skating house of course!The ice skating house pop's up from behind the trees & snowman when the card opens!

Dance Card
This logo I recently designed was for dance school 'Dance Design' in Nottingham. The school specialises in ballet,tap, jazz & street dance for kids so the logo had to be fun, friendly & energetic!I also designed these jazzy business cards with different fondant inspired coloured backs... now show me your jazz hands!
