A Beautiful Machine piece auctioned for Save the Children

I recently found out that the piece I created for the Beautiful Machine show back in March was sold at an online auction to raise money for Save the Children Haiti appeal. The piece entitled "Victorian Tall Bike" was sold for £92, the highest priced piece from the show which included work from artists including 45rpm, Adrian Johnson and ilovedust, so really chuffed about that. All-in-all the auction raised over £1500 for the charity. Good news all round!

Revised Common Sense Logo designs

Due to certain complications I had to slightly revise my original design's for the Common Sense set of logo's. Here are the finalised logos in all their glory. The client is highly satisfied with the results and they will feature on website and any printed material. 

Property of Bristol Live draw

Last night myself and Mr Raven were invited down to the Property of Bristol night. A live radio show broadcast on the internet accompanied by some live drawing by myself, Nick & Tim and Iain of Property of Bristol. The whole thing is done from a living room in Bedminster, Bristol and was great fun to do. The order of the day was robots and monsters and we were all really happy with how they came out. Hopefully this will be the start of a regular thing, with Rich and Tim putting on regular nights and talks of t-shirt designs. 

Big thanks to the POB boys for a very enjoyable and their generous hospitality.

Ink Dot piece

This is the image I created for the Ink Dot show taking place at the Howies store, Bristol in June. The theme for the show is Escape and there was a simple 8 colour palette to work with including black & white. 
I wanted to create something graphically simple and striking. Hopefully I'v achieved that and I'll sell a few prints on the launch night.
