Alphabits | Illustrated letter
I was invited to contribute to an illustrated alphabet project initiated by Julian James (NewSugar/Whyisbox). 26 artists have each been given the task of creating a letter for the project. All proceeds will go to Children in Need. I'll post information including the website once it's launched.
AMMO Magazine | Nurbler's
These are the little characters I created for Ammo Magazine and feature on the cover (both inside and out). The magazine is now available to purchase and you can see photographs of the artwork contained within on the website. So far the feedback has been really positive so I hope it will sell well and let me continue to create a lot more issues.
AMMO | Illustration Magazine
My latest project has just been sent off to the printers so it's about time I started to mention it here and there. Starting with here.
Ammo Magazine is a submission based printed illustration magazine. It's only small (a6) but I think people will really like it. I've been creating several new illustrations for the magazine and website (above you can see the websites artist page illustration). I've also created the cover illustration myself and it's quite different from my usual work. Most of my work up to now has featured people of some description. For the mags cover I've created some fun alien characters which I'm really happy with. It's a style I'd like to develop further so I hope people like them as much as I do. I'll post cover ill's when the mags printed.
The first issue features a selection of my favorite illustrators including:
Aaron Miller, Al Murphy, Andy Council, Anke Weckmann, Camelia Dobrin, Christine Mann, Colin Hood, Gemma Correll, Ill.Design, Jeffrey Bowman, Karo Knitter, Katari, Matt Pattinson, Messy Msxi, Mr Millerchip, Mr Penfold, Natalie Ratkovski, Rathinan Thaijareorn, Rod Hunt, Scott Pollard, Stephen Chan, Taylor White, Whyisbox & Yuta Onoda.
Really happy with the amazing selection of artists that have agreed to be part of my little mag. Can't wait to show it off. If you'd like to be featured in the second issue then check out the Ammo site and send me your submissions.
Koodoo | Playful Vector Graphics
I've put together a small book featuring some of my favourite work to date. Above you can see some spreads.
Koodoo Magazine | Issue 2 - Format
It's finally here! After what seems like ages i'm able to unveil the second issue of my little magazine. I'm increasing the number of individually numbered copies from 100 to 200!
Some of these copies already have exciting places to go so there will be around 100 available to post out. You'll be able to find the mag at the following places.
Material - Ludow. Very cool little design shop/gallery. From 16th May
Cut-Click Exhibition - Abbey Walk Gallery, Grimsby. Cut-Click Magazines first group exhibition. From 29th June
Cubitt Gallery - London. Copies of the mag will find their way into a new library where they will hopefully provide inspiration to kids and adults alike that are interested in creating there own zine. Thanks go to Adam Murray for getting me involved in this worthwhile project
One of the magazines illustrations is also making it onto tshirts and tote bags! They will be available to buy in Birmingham and also online. I'll post more details and pics of the tees/totes when they are printed. I'm also going to hold back a few copies of the mag to accompany the tshirts launch.
If you'd like to be one of the first to hear about new issues of Koodoo Mag then check out my group on Concrete Hermit. There are some very nice comments about the mag and a superb community of artists too.
All mags come with a button badge!

Koodoo | Workspace
I originally took this photo to place on the Concrete Hermit Network but thought I'd share it here too. It's one corner of my studio and looks extra shiny after an early spring clean...
Monstar! | NewSugar
Collaborative piece created by Aaron Miller (top), Julian James (middle) & me (bottom) to promote a special edition of NewSugar Magazine. We all worked without seeing what the other two were creating and the result is this weird looking creature. I was given free reign to create the body so obviously I decided a monster/zombie in Y-fronts was the only way to go!
FInd out more about the project at the whyisbox website and while you're at it why not check out Aaron's cool site too!?
Spring 09 | Promo CD
Cover artwork for a personal project. Features illustrations from issue 2 of Koodoo Mag and a pretty big clue as to the theme... the mag will be out sometime this year for sure!

You can see some of my artwork including a new piece (shown above) alongside an interview in issue 4 of GizMag. Look inside and you'll see artwork and interviews from a varied selection of cool artists. Check it out!
NewSugar | Issue 4
Issue 4 of the excellent NewSugar is out now. Features a cover, inside cover and 1st page by yours truly. Inside you'll find a great selection of new artistic talent on display. Why not have a gander right now!?

The Brilliant Book of Bears | Book
Great little project initiated by Grizzlybear on Concrete Hermit. Basically a random book of Bear illustrations by a selection of awesome artists. Will hopefully become part of a hardback book in the near future. Will update here as soon as it's published!
The deadline for illustrations is 12th of March so if you're an artist and feel like drawing a bear get involved! The contributions so far are spot on and all submissions are welcome.
Blanket Magazine | Issue 14
I was invited to contribute to Blanket's latest issue. The theme was 'Blue' and I was supplied with song lyrics chosen by the Blanket team. Using the lyrics as inspiration I created this blue fella. The mag's available to download now so head over to the Blanket site and grab yourselves a copy.
Belio Magazine | Issue 028
My latest illustration can be seen in issue 028 of Spanish magazine Belio. The talented people at Belio have incorporated it into one of their spreads alongside some cool hand drawn illustration and photography.

It's available to buy in loads of locations worldwide (see the Belio website for distribution list and more spreads), or purchase it online.
