Why stick to paper.

I enjoy applying my drawing onto all sorts of different materials, here I made an apron that I decorated with illustrations of various English trees using fabric pens. I'm aiming to come up with a design that I can then get properly printed onto aprons, to ensure the image lasts after washing and to make it possible to apply an image with delicate lines onto the fabric. At the moment the lines are a little too chunky than I'd like and texture is hard to get across with the pens I am using. I guess you could call it work in progress.

Signage, fun with typography.

Firstly..... a sign I painted for the location of a friends bike hire business in Cambridge. If you are visiting lovely Cambridge I would recommend exploring on a bicycle, do check out his website: http://www.bikehireonline.com/

Here are two notice boards I was commissioned to paint for the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse.
