Sketchbook Project 2012 Entry

Here is my entry for this year's Sketchbook Project, I completed this little story back in October after choosing the title 'I Remember You.' You should be able to see it very soon at Arthouse Co-op but I don't think it has been digitized yet. The sketchbooks are on the move throughout the USA and will be coming over to London later in the year!

I approached this as a story board having had an idea a few years ago so the sketchbook has a definite narrative which is very different from the sketchbook I have just completed for Sketchbook Project, Limited Edition.

Commissions are like buses...

Latest Greetings Card Commissions

I love creating bespoke designs for clients and jumped at the chance I got recently to illustrate cards for a friend's wedding and a colleagues leaving card. I will upload the wedding card when the special day has taken place...don't want to ruin the surprise!
Paper greetings cards are so special; enabling us to keep in touch, express our gratitude, our best wishes or just let someone know we are thinking about them. E-cards can be just as touching but nothing beats opening an envelope to find a hand-crafted, scrumptious piece of art work and messages inside.

Monday the 30th of April was a busy day for me! I had 4 deadlines for design projects (as well as actually having to physically be at my actual job as a teaching assistant!) I suppose it has given me a really good taste of how life as a self-employed artist could be and that there will be busy periods balanced out by quieter ones.

I have also been working on a really exciting project for the multi-talented Sarah Applewood who is an actress, musician, singer, children's entertainer and professional face paint artist. Visit her blog for more information and to see a couple of the bespoke designs I have created for her.

I will post some pictures when Sarah launches her website!

Please email me at if you would like to commission a greetings card for a special occasion.
