O Christmas Tree

I've made a christmas tree rubber stamp and have been screenprinting snow.  Here are some of the pages from my sketchbook and a bit of development.

Starbuck's Red Cups

I like the simplicity of this illustration - clean sharp lines and simple colour.

New Home

I've been looking at people's front doors all week for Ipswich Building Society's latest mortgage poster and can't stop!  I thought these doors would look good as New Home cards too!

Benvenuto a Carluccio's

Here are some of my notes from Carluccio's Cambridge.  I was eating my food as slow as I could so I could stay and draw for longer... there was so much to see but the waitress didn't understand this!

Mermaid Cafe

These are fab.  They are part of a series of lino cuts by Jonny Hannah.
I especially like the marks he has used and the paper he has printed on.

Im excited about finally getting back to Cambridge tomorrow to study Carluccio's some more.  I want to gather alot of visual information whilst Im there.  I will look at colours, shapes and interesting compositions and I will look at the words around.   The colours and shapes of this packaging reminds me of when I was at Carluccio's last time.  I'll hopefully put up some drawings tomorrow when I get back.

Talking of printmaking...

I'm about to start a printmaking course on Tuesday nights,  I want to use the time to experiment and develop my printing.  I have lots of ideas of things to print, so many, its hard to know what to do first.  

I like the shapes of these labels though, and also have some good looking bottles in my studio which could look good printed.


Had a good days printmaking this week and got the artwork for these posters finished.  I'm liking the colours.

I like this page layout with the large expanse of colour and the positive shapes on the top.

Together. We can do it.

I've been asked to be involved in the re-branding of African Adventure, an activities residential for local schools.  I made a rubber stamp, which I may use as the logo.
