I have just realised that it has been well over a year since i updated this blog. Things have been so busy since I finished my Masters. i have kept my website, facebook and twitter going but this has fallen behind. Hopefully now I will be able to get back to some research and I think I will use this blog for my sketchbook – ideas, failed drawings and discoveries.
Lots of good things have happened in the last year. I have made seven copies of The Golden Plaice (my hand made pop-up book) the sixth of which was commissioned by The Yale Center for British Art and will go into the summer 2014 exhibition “Of Green Leaf, Bird, and Flower”: Artists’ Books and the Natural World. I also have another three books on order which I will hopefully get round to making sooner rather than later. I have made three 24 hour comics which are going to be published as a box set by Atlantic Press, the first of which ‘The Leviathan’ is also currently being published in instalments by Snuff Comix in Italy. My work has also found it’s way into several issues of the incredible Tiny Pencil and I have recently starting helping out on the production and design side of things as well. Most recently I was delighted to be asked to do a picture for Mutation Zine. A brand new zine from Pete Murgatroyd ft. international artists celebrating “Amateurism” (creating for the love of the work) in illustration, music and digital art. I have also had several exhibitions including guest printmaker at the Print Shop Bristol, The Tobacco factory, Falmouth Poly (twice) and my own gallery & events space 64 Killigrew St. We have also curated several fantastic shows (`Foldzine, Homage..)with upcoming debuts by Irene Vidal and Ben Peers.
