Young Artist of The Year

I have the pleasure of exhibiting two pieces of work in this years 'Young Artists of the Year competition' currently showing at the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle, NE2 1AN. November 18th - December 4th. Both pieces are from a series I produced a few years ago regarding observations in and around Felixstowe in Suffolk.

In my relatively short professional career it's only the second time I've been able to exhibit some of my work in the City I started my arts education. Hopefully sometime in the not so distant future I will find a way to exhibit some more.

Big thank you to the Biscuit Factory as I was unable to attend the opening night but if you look closely at the picture on the Young Artist Website you can just make out my images on the right.

Images 35 + Fashion Illustrations.

Bit of a catch up blog as the last few months have been a bit hectic. I've been packing up boxes, living in other peoples houses, moving into a new house and unpacking again while still trying to make a living. So i'm pleased to announce that we are now all settled and creatively re-engaged.

A few interesting bits of news while I've been away.

AOI's annual which celebrates illustration excellence, Images 35 was published during August and I'm happy to say that one of my images is included, the one on the left below.

Alongside Images 35, I've also had some images included in Martin Dawbers 'Great Big Book of Fashion Illustration' published during September.

Both books are fantastic and full of immensely talented image makers. I can highly recommend picking both of them up.
