Philip Pullman & John Lawrence

I went to a talk by Philip Pullman this evening hosted by the legend Mick Gower. 
He read extracts from his new book 'Grimm Tales for Young and Old' with discussions and questions from the audience.
So good!

Bumped in to John Lawrence afterwards aswell, one of my favourite illustrators/print makers
Just about managed to squeak out 'I love your work!' before running off bright red
He was so friendly though haha
Mega chuffed

Doodled whilst listening to 'The Three Snake-Leaves'

Christmas Cards

Considering how hungover Ive been today, I think this is pretty damn productive.

First designs for a Christmas Card to be printed with my beautiful Gocco printing Press

I borrowed this book from the library the other day and so instead of working (like I should be), Im gonna post it on here.

I especially like the cross sections of the plant stems. Would love the opportunity to illustrate a biology/science textbook one day

Lemon Pips

Illustration to accompany a poem by Hollie McNish called 'Lemon Pips' 

It will be in a booklet by ShapeEast called 'Walking with Women', a guide to the City of Cambridge which focuses on the roles of women in Cambridge's history. Each story has an accompanying poem.
Mine is about Kettle's Yard and Helen Ede.

Each Illustration I make these days is an experiment and I try a new way of working.
Anyway here it is

Im so happy with the poem I got which is about Helen Ede and Kettle's Yard

Had a really good screen printing refresher lesson today. 
Once Ive got a couple of projects finished and sent off I've got plans to start some prints.
In the mean time, when my brain is frazzled from serious work Ive been experimenting with drawing on top of some of my photographs.

Other news - Off to Manchester this weekend for a Warehouse Project night.
Flying Lotus, Squarepusher, Lapalux, Dj Shadow and loads more
So excited
