Girls Girls Girls

A few drawings of some girls and what they're wearing. I played around with the last image and dropped one of my patterns onto the girls shirt, not sure if I like this or not yet.

Poppies and Mushrooms

A couple of new patterns I drew yesterday, for no reason other than I felt like drawing which is always quite a nice way to work.

Doesn't need too much introduction, a sketch of David Lynch using Ink and a quill pen.

Garden Visitors

As well as having a nice space to grow plants I absolutely love my garden as it attracts so many birds. Seriously, I see so many different breeds of birds from your more common Robin or Blue Tit to a Great Spotted Woodpecker or a Nuthatch. I did a few quick drawings of some of my favourite ones, I absolutely love the Robins, I have one that always flies onto my washing line when i'm outside and waits for me to give her mealworms, I presume it's a she as she was feeding young earlier in the year.

Flower Drawings

It was a nice sunny day today which makes a change so I was a little inspired to draw some flowers, these are some of my all time favourite flowers, add poppies to the list and these would definitely be my top 4. These were just some quick sketchy drawings using watercolour and ink but was nice to do some drawing just for fun.

How does your garden grow

This is my first house (minus my parents) that i've lived in where I have a garden. I may not be the most green fingered person and i'm certainly not the greatest but I really love gardening, it's so exciting to see something that you've planted from seed start to grow. As summer approaches the garden is getting even more exciting with lots of things coming into flower, here's a few things that are doing rather well.

My favourite cow is a Highland cow

I have a thing about Highland cows, I don't know why but there's something I love about there long ginger hair. If you walk 20 mins down the road from my house you come to a field with a dozen or so highland cattle which is very exciting, I decided to draw one with watercolour just for fun and it hasn't turned out too bad...maybe i'll have to draw some more in future.

Hangin' Film Poster

A while back I was asked to create a poster for my friend Danny's short film Hangin'. In Danny's own words Hangin' is a short film about hangovers, vampires and cheating with the wrong girl. It was a great little project to work on and really nice to do something a bit different for a change. Also, the film is excellent, and it was chosen to be screened in competition at the London Independent Film Festival which is very good news.

ASOS Shirt Prints

The past year or so has flown by and has also been a bit mad. I've travelled, i've moved house, i've tried working on my own but what I haven't done much of is my own work, hence why this blog has somewhat ceased to exist.

I don't usually show my day to day work because mainly I have to consider copyright issues and also I set up this blog to show my own style rather than what someone has briefed me to do. However, these two shirt patterns that I designed a couple of months back are in stores now and i'm rather pleased with them. For a nice change I got to draw things I like the way I like and I think the outcome is pretty darn good. If you like them you can buy them online, for the woodland print, and the bird print.
