It was a real pleasure to be part of the judging for the latest edition of Lurzers 200 Best Illustrators and great to get the book through the post the other day. Thanks Kate and all at Lurzers. It was an even bigger joy to see the work of the 201st best illustrator on the inside cover. I now have a very chuffed daughter to see her portrait of me published. I think she got me pretty accurately!
A Punkture poster with wise words with the Prudential Ride London in mind. It was a brutal five hours on the bike where it pretty much rained the whole time. Something I do not want to ever do again! Until next year maybe...
But it raised over £500 for the charity Debra, so worth the pain and misery.
A fun few days spent shooting in Coventry around the cathedral and suburbs for SSE with Felicity Crawshaw. The only downside being when my freshly cleaned car got shat on after parking under a tree. Damn birds.
A return trip to Birmingham shooting more Google with Sophie Ebrard. And great to be shooting some frames on film....the results were so much richer. All rounded off with a rather fab curry. Nice work.
Looking forward to seeing some great illustration from around the world as part of judging for the Lurzers Archive 200 Best Illustrators. Was great to be voted one of the 200 last time round for the work on Camden Lock Books.
These are exciting times. After almost 13 years up at RKCR/Y&R I'm currently residing in Paddington. Two weeks in and it's a breath of fresh air to be working here...
Pretty fun day travelling round London with Titch...watching some of the Oxfam posters being pasted up.
