Phonetic alphabet

A newly designed print coming soon. I think I should live with it for a while to spot the inevitable spelling mistake.

Friends of Homerton Station

I have just completed this illustration for The Friends of Homerton Station, a voluntary group set up by local people to plant meadows at Homerton station, Hackney, E9.
Planting wildflowers helps to preserve native species and the variety of wildflowers on the embankments in the station will create a wildlife-friendly habitat to enencourage butterflies, bees, other insects and birds.
My illustration will feature on a poster printed by London Transport and displayed within the station to make people aware of the groups work.

Someone in the house say YEAH!

Today I was talking to the chap fixing our lift here at Bridget Riley Studios, he told me he used to attend raves here back in 1988 when he was fifteen year old lad living on the Roman Road. Although he couldn't remember much about the parties other than having a very good time, he did say that Percy Daltons Peanut Factory (as it was then) was one of the original major warehouse venues used for a few weeks before it was busted. If anyone has any more information, I would love to find out more about this spell in the history of 43 Dace Road. As my lift fixing, veteran raver friend said "... this was our Hacienda."

The Scythe Festival

I have just designed the poster for the sixth West Country Scythe Festival and Green Fair. Its a fantastic day out in the Somerset Levels with good food and drink and some very exciting scything contests.
I will be printing the posters this week, so if you like them you can purchase them here.
Here are some photos from last year.

These chaps were selling elderflower Champaign made at Tinker's Bubble.

Print Pattern book

I have some work in a new book published by Laurence King. Print Pattern is compiled by the creator of the blog of the same name The book documents the work of the best surface designers from around the world and features products that have been embellished with a surface print or pattern, including graphics, cards, gift wrap, stationery, textiles, ceramics, badges, stickers, and wallpaper.
Two of my prints featured in the book were produced exclusively for Olive Loves Alfie.
