New Year Catch Up

Dearest Pigeon Fanciers,

Happy New Year ! I’ve got lots to show you, from what I’ve been up to during the festive season, to more recent work I’ve been steadily pecking away at.

Collages

As you may have seen in my previous post, I’ve been having lots of fun making collages in the past few months.

When I get the chance, I love to screen print in the Drawn in Bristol studio in Hamilton House.

I made a series of two-colour Happy Cactus and Platypus cards:

I also worked on a much bigger scale, making A2 prints of a group of canopic jars I’d previously drawn in Bristol museum. I tried making the detail as minimal as possible – one colour per jar:

I also made a two-colour screen print of a drawing I’m working on for a picture book:

Shops

My screen printed cards and prints were then displayed in the Print Shop, a pop-up by shop filled with only hand-printed products, in Quakers Friars, Bristol. They also did a lovely Meet the Printmaker blog on me and the work I had in the shop.

I also had my work in Objets de Desir, a pop-up shop in Cabot Circus, Bristol, with a range of hand-made products, over the Christmas season. They also did a nice blog, Spotlight On…Pigeon Illustration, on me and my work.

Exhibitions

I teamed up with Hare Raising Designs in December to do a joint exhibition at the Parlour Showrooms on Park Street, Bristol. Sadly it was one of the last exhibitions there before they closed the space at the end of the year.

My work is currently hanging in the Grant Bradley Gallery in Bristol for their exhibition Let Me Illustrate II, which will be up until the 1st of February:

Current Work

During the last week or so I’ve been working on some Wild West themed pieces, experimenting with different techniques and colour palettes:   GunslingerIMG_4990Cacti-and-Bird
That’s about all for now, thanks for visiting and you can keep up with my work on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

Butterflies and Birthday Cards

Hello again!

Over the last few weeks I have been busy making lots of new images. I have been drawing from life:

 


(Sketched at the Bristol Museum and Galleries)

From imagination:

And sometimes from the internet (which can be a useful tool when you don’t have a baby tapir to hand!):

But I think most excitingly (for me at least) is that I have sent a couple of new cards to print:

These will be available in our section upstairs in BS8, Park Street, Bristol and in my Etsy shop by the end of next week hopefully.

That’s all for now, but you can catch up on what else I’m up to on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, hope to see you there!
