Wow. Last night I went to see the most inspiring film, Tracks, about a girl that crosses the Australian outback with only four camels and her dog. The film itself is beautifully shot and the story is wonderful, full of bravery, grit and adventure. Robyn Davidson, who’s true story this film tells, has one awesome sense of self having followed a path that to others seemed crazy but to her seemed like the only option, the thing she was meant […]
After spending an incredible month travelling in Thailand at the end of last year I wanted to capture my memories in a Thailand travel poster. I got so excited that I decided to make this piece bigger than any of my previous personal work. This finished piece is A1 – definitely big enough for me to feel warm and sunny whenever I look at it! I’ve also recently blogged about a smaller travel poster for Monsaraz, Portugal that I completed earlier this […]

Yet, despite believing […]
Now, I know that since it’s almost June and we’re a long way from Christmas I shouldn’t technically be sharing an illustration of The Three Kings. However, since these guys are Inca kings rather than the traditional Christmassy kind, I’ve told myself it’s ok to shake things up even more by sharing them in the summer!
Today I thought I’d share this paper sketch of some blossom that I did one morning a few weeks ago. This year’s blossom has pretty much all gone now but I want to hang on to the sense of promise and opportunity that blossom brings with it – not only is it beautiful to look at but also the very word itself fills you with positivity!
