‘Stand Stronger Together’…

…I was approached by TLC Holdings in the summer to produce a new piece of work for their re-design of the Association of Illustrators website.  As a longstanding member of the AOI (25 years and counting – ouch that makes me feel old!) I was delighted and flattered to be asked to contribute.  There are 6 images rotating on the homepage from some brilliant contempraries – Sam Chivers, Isobel Barber, Kirsten Sims, Julian Glander and last but but no means least, the great Oliver Jeffers, some great company to be amongst.

‘Addiction Safe House’…

…New for Johns Hopkins Magazine, Fall 2017 Issue.

The story is about safe consumption spaces for illegal drugs, which a professor in the Bloomberg School of Public Health is suggesting as a way to combat drug overdoses.  This idea is modelled on Insite, located in Vancouver, which is North America’s first supervised drug injection centre; where people can safely inject, smoke, or inhale illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and morphine. They are supervised by trained medical staff without fear of prosecution.

‘Stiff Upper Lip’…

…A new image produced following an invitation to take part in the Great British Postcard Competition by the Marketing team for Saxoprint – Freestyle Interactive.

This piece is a response to the traditional ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ attitude of the British as described below:

None of us should be embarrassed, worried or even scared to speak about issues that affect our lives, why then are the British so scared about speaking up for ourselves or others and tarnished with a ‘stiff upper lip’ attitude? There are stories about nurses worried that if they say anything detrimental about their working conditions that they will lose their jobs, MP’s that have to resign when speaking up about the root causes for problems and even members of the Royal Family who can’t (until now) admit that major events have affected them. Recently the head of the London Fire Brigade spoke up about counselling after the Grenfell Fire disaster – maybe things are slowly starting to change – I for one hope so!

‘br-EXPORT’…

…New illustration looking at Brexit in a positive way.  I was invited to submit work for the project by Julia Protesaru at Freestyle Interactive for Saxoprint.

Could Brexit lead to a renewed boost in British Trade & Industry, encouraging new ‘home’ employment, education and apprenticeships and subsequently lead to a greater economy?

‘The Prize for Illustration 2017 – update’…

…An update to the previous posting – I’m extremely proud to announce that I have gained the Bronze Award for my entry to the Prize for Illustration 2017.  I’d like to thank all of the judges who voted for my work and ranked it amongst the overall winners.

Unfortunately I couldn’t make the show due to unforeseen circumstances so I’d like to say a very special thank you to Sarah Thomson, Head of Art Production from Ogilvy for speaking on my behalf and for her very kind words in support of my work.

The following photographs have been sent to me from the Private View/Awards Ceremony by the AOI.

‘The Prize for Illustration 2017’…

…At last I can reveal the wonderful news of my successful entry to The Prize for Illustration, jointly organised by the Association of Illustrators and Transport for London.  Making the show as one of 100 exhibitors from over 2000 entries is a great achievement and I’d like to thank all of the judges.

This year’s theme, ‘Sounds of the City’, required an illustrated interpretation of urban sound, my image titled ‘Sound of the Underground’, pays homage to our cities’ wonderful street performers in all their guises.  I’m really proud to say that this is my hat-trick – it’s the third year in a row that I have had work accepted and exhibited into this show.

The exhibition opens to the public on 19th May at the Transport Museum in Covent Garden and runs until Sunday 3rd September.  There are several special events planned which can be viewed on the website including a very special ‘Friday Late’ event this Friday evening to mark the opening.
