Hi there and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This year, I promise to keep this space up to date. It's been a hectic few months, you see. So many exciting things in the pipelines!

So first thing's first. Just before Christmas, I was ecstatic to find a box delivered to me from Amelia Gregory. It could only be one thing. Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration. Beautifully printed and designed, Amelia's hard work has paid off magnificently, with each page and artist feature beautifully adorned with a different border and colour scheme to compliment the work submitted. All the illustrations in the book are by contributors to Amelia's Magazine, and all the clothes in the illustrations are by ethical designers. The book is made up of interviews (conducted by Amelia) with the designers and the illustrators, making the book a must for those who want to pick up a few tips, or grab an insight into the worlds of ethical fashion and fashion illustration.

The book is on sale here for a marvellous £20.

Here is a photo of my copy of the book, happily sat beneath a bottle of Harvey's...

Prior to the excitement of #ACOFI's release, I was asked to design a Christmas card for East London IT firm Macnamara. Kate from Macnamara did a wonderful little feature on me for the News section of their website, which can be seen under the Wednesday 15th December 2010 entry (scroll down...) here. My final design consisted of festive hand drawn objects that built the shape of a Christmas tree, decorated by a branded ribbon in their company colour. You can see my design below.

This year, I also designed my mother's Christmas cards, which she sent off all over the place to her nearest and dearest! I know the image is grainy, but here was the end result (found in my aunt's display)! Next year, I will have many more designs that will be available to buy online in my shop!


Last, but by no means least, I was absolutely over the moon to see that I was featured in the 'Digital Digest' section of The Independent's Viewspaper yesterday. Without getting too cheesy and sentimental, it's little gestures like this that keep me going in this competitive business. So I'm dead chuffed. Here are 2 photos that are keeping me beaming!

That is it from me for the time being, but rest assured, there is plenty more a-happening that I will soon be able to tell y'all about! And I can't ruddy wait.

Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration

Hello strangers!

I apologise for the lack of contact over the past few months, but both my personal and professional life has experienced some enormous (extremely positive and exciting) shifts lately. The latter will eventually be unveiled, but for now, I still have some very exciting news:

Amelia Gregory, of Amelia's Magazine is releasing a book. This book is called Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration. It's bringing together some of best names in eco friendly fashion design through the medium of fashion illustration, provided by some of Amelia's dedicated team of wonderful contributing illustrators to her online blog. Amongst some other fantastic artists, I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of these, and cannot WAIT to see the end product.

Here is a sneeeeak preview, showing the proof of my page(s).


Out VERY soon, you can pre-order your copy here.
A perfect gift for Xmas. So, GO GO GO!

Peculiar Bliss

I submitted this piece to the wonderful on-line magazine, Peculiar Bliss. In its third issue, the theme that characterises this edition was 'Dreamscape'.

Featuring interviews with Josh Lafayette and Rand Renfrow, as well as 20 other brilliant artists, I was dead chuffed when I found out I'd been included.

You'll find me on page 19!

Digital Arts Magazine

What a lovely surprise it was to find my work on the Digital Artist Daily site, promoting the European Panda Project.

What an even greater surprise to find my panda was chosen to represent the project in Digital Artist Magazine!!

I'm well chuffed. Glad to be part of such a great and fun project.

Ada Zanditon For Amelia's Magazine

I would have posted this up yesterday, howevever, it hadn't been posted up yet on Amelia's Magazine, so I thought I'd hang fire.

This is an illustration of 'Freya' from Ada Zanditon's ADZ SS'11 collection. View the complete collection here.

August Twenty Ten

It's been a mighty busy August! I have been working away at several projects, have been featured on a couple of websites and (drumroll.......................) MY WEBSITE HAS GONE LIVE.

There's lots to get through, so I'll start from the top.

The wonderful Mr Millerchip and Chris Nunn are starting up a press specialising in black and white illustration. Part of the project involves getting folk to design their own 'European Panda', an open brief, just so long as the end result is in black and white. This is my fury little man, Pascal. You can see the other submissions here

Illustration Rally is a brilliant international rolling collaboration for illustrators, run by the lovely Natsuki Otani . Each rally has a theme, and mine was 'Months of the Year'. This is my 'April' I was featured this week! Click here to see.

Fat Rat Films is a wonderful film production company, working with charities and making political documentaries. Not long ago they asked me to design their logo. It was a challenge coming up with something that is simple, easily adaptable in terms of colour for use in different projects, yet also something that isn't silly that could possibly diminish the serious nature of the work they do. This was the final design, in 'Transformer Grey'.

I have done a couple of illustrations for Amelia's Magazine recently. This one is for womenswear label Masha Ma. Read the article, written by Ester Kneen, here.

Last but not least, last week my WEBSITE WENT LIVE! Thank you to the very brilliant Christopher Peacock!! I now know a bit of coding too, which is a miracle in itself.
Here is a screenshot of my homepage:

I think that's enough for now. 'Appy as Larry and have other projects in the pipelines I'll tell you about when I can!

'Till next time!x

Outsmart 2010

It has been a while since I last updated you.

Apologies for the delay, but I have been swanning around a field for the past weekend at the magical Secret Garden Party. Thought I'd share a couple of photos before getting on with the real purpose of this post!


Right, now time to get on with it..I heard about Gemma Randall's Outsmart Project through some fantastic illustrators on twitter.

The only condition to the brief is that you include the Smart Car.

I have been getting into my patterns again recently, so I decided to design one dedicated to the Smart Car, using the Smart Car as a main element.

Will update you very soon with other pieces I've been working on.

Caribou Poster for the Brudenell Social Club

I bloody love Caribou, so when I saw he was heading down to play the Brudenell Social Club (a wonderful place I used to frequent when I lived in Leeds)in November later this year, I thought I'd do a poster to keep my creative juices flowing.

Nath from the Brudenell saw my work and told me that although he has a poster design already (it's going to be a pretty massive gig) he'd get a few of mine printed too.

When Doves Cry



Having been asked to design a gig poster recently, I turned my attention to music related design and thought I'd do a design with a record sleeve in mind, possibly to be printed in the near future...

With NO relation at all ( the name) to The Black Eyed Peas 2003 debut album, I present to you:

It seems to have been a while since I last updated my blog.

Last week I went away to the lovely town of Paignton. Stayed in a lovely house on Newbarn Farm in Blagdon. Here are some photos I took:

I am absolutely appauled that I missed this when it happened, but last month, I was featured on 'Fuck Yeah Moleskines'. Somebody described my work as 'The epitome of patience'. I. Am. Dead. Chuffed.

Graduate Fashion Week

This week, Graduate Fashion Week dominated many blogs attention. Not least, Amelia's Magazine.

Here are two illustrations I have done.

One was of a piece by UCLAN Central Lancashire's Rachel Wolstenholme, the other of Anna Sergunova's work from the International Show.

View the full articles here (written by Lauren Smith), and here (written by Bekkie Gilbert).

Colonel Windpipe's Magical Marching Parade

When I first heard on Twitter that Lesley Barnes and Matt Williams (AKA Uberkraaft) were doing a collaboration, I got a little bit excited to see what they'd come up with. Little did I know that they were formulating a plan that was so great, so brilliant that we could all have a dabble in.

Enter Colonel Windpipe, a splended fellow, who is recruiting for his Magical Marching Band. To have a look, follow this link.

With many fellow illustrators on board, drawing up their own musical members, the plan is to devise a processional print of the marchers, to be sold for charity.

Introducing my member: Corporal Tim Tambo, on the tambourine!
