Excited to announce that I’ll be at this year’s House of Illustration Winter Fair. I’ll have all kinds of prints and cards available so please stop by and say hello! More details to come…
Illustration for the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings new membership leaflet. I was asked to draw small vignettes for a pull-out postcard. Design: Letter g
Parts of the illustration were foil printed for the design which was really nice to see! You can view more pictures from this project over here.
The lovely folk at Hahnemuhle sent me some new watercolour papers to have a go with! Looking forward to trying these out...
There's lots of places along Brick Lane that I've wanted to paint in the past. Here I decided to group them together into one picture.
The painting was all done on location on a single sheet of watercolour paper - I started with Preem one of the street's famous curry houses, and worked my way down the street including the Bookshop and Beigel Bake.

I've been enjoying working with mixed media recently, particularly using newspaper as a base to draw and paint over.
Collage gives a lot of possibilities for conveying different textures; the brutalist architecture of the National Theatre with its subtle gradients of tone and line seemed like a good match for this approach.
The picture took around 5 sittings to complete - the longest part being arranging the underlying newspaper.
The picture is available as a print from my shop here.
If you are interested in the original piece please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and more information.
