Regarding Everything as Play

Had a lovely time at Toast on Wednesday at the Drink N Draw event ‘Regarding Everything as Play’. Met lots of friendly and interesting people and really enjoyed a spot of blind drawing and experimentation. Thank you to Pop Up Arts Fair/GatheringLeah Boote IllustrationMystery Post and Frank Pellow. Looking forward to the next Halloween themed one on October 18th!

The Robot and Worm (Good name for a pub!)

Couple more recent drawings. One’s a robot window cleaner I forgot to send to a character design challenge and the other a worm  drawn for Thomas Sharpe’s birthday. Enjoyed drawing these alot. Expect lots of new monster drawings with Halloween coming up. X

Recording an album!

Been busy lately recording some songs with Cally Gibson and Matt Collington for a Sam and Cally album. Super excited but it’s a way off yet. Recording takes a crazy amount of time. Did post a pretty little video of us adding some glockenspiel to a track called ‘The last lullaby’ though because it sounded really pretty.



It Came from The Centre of the Earth!!!!

Here’s a few bits of sketchbook work finished recently. ‘2 Robots Meeting’, ‘Earth’ and ‘It Came from The Centre of the Earth’. Hope you enjoy. X
