Last Friday ‘Jotta’ (online portfoio site and magazine) hosted a really great night all themed around the wonderful world of illustration. They had a pop up fish and chip shop, secret wars drawing battle and live animations. Here is a pic of one of my illustrations animated with the wonderful work of LOGAN.


We even got the chance to make screen printed tote bags while we were there!

(mine’s the black one).

Plans are currently underway for our summer exhibition at the Top and Tail gallery in Hackney Wick. The show will be curated by a group of us from our studio block, and it will feature work from 15 of the East london’s most exciting emerging artists. The theme this year is the London Gin Palaces of the Victorian era, and it has been approached using a variety of drawing, video, print, and photography. For more info visit the Top and Tail blog! See you there…

Last week I did an enormous drawing on the window of the Natural Shoe Store/Birkenstock, on Neal st (Covent Garden, London). It was a really fun job, but I have never been on a ladder quite that high- I ached the next day! : p Take note of the hand made Posca marker utility belt.
