My partner, Elly Hadaway, is a folk musician, and I’ve just helped them record, produce, and release a single. You can buy digital or physical copies at Bandcamp, and I’ll talk a bit about the design aspects after the jump.

Here are three of 2012′s Christmas card designs! They (and a few others) will be on my stall at the Lionheart Market in Leytonstone on Saturday 1st December and Saturday 15th December, along with jewellery, artwork, and Christmas tree decorations.
I & some friends recently spent a weekend acting some classic murder mysteries for our own entertainment. For various reasons, we needed to produce scripts for them – private use only, so this isn’t a copyright issue – and it would have been a shame not to do our own cover designs with original artwork.

I went to this conference on Saturday, at Firstsite in Colchester – it was a really good, inspiring day. Since a lot of you won’t be familiar with the empty shops movement, here’s a short executive summary. There are a lot of disused commercial & retail spaces in the UK, and that’s only set to […]
This is a sign I made for craft fairs—it’s a nice heavy block of reclaimed hardwood, thick enough to stand up on its own, and it proved very eye-catching indeed.

That black & silver choker is made from Fabriano Tiziano pastel paper, folded & laminated, and then very thoroughly varnished. It ends up very like thin leather, but it’s entirely vegan. (Not all papers are; most art paper uses animal […]
Linocut, roughly 200mm square, posted in my Etsy shop. This was inspired by a conversation with a friend about druidry, and remembering the mountains of Snowdonia where I grew up. It wasn’t originally intended to be a night scene, and it’s turned out a lot smoother and more Art Nouveau than I’d intended – I […]
I’ve put some more pictures up in the gallery, after the lovely Pern was kind enough to model some bits and pieces I had lying around. Comments on them are very welcome, especially suggestions for other things to make or to do designs on.
This evening, Liz showed me this article about the redesign of the internal communications in Friends House, and for the Quakers generally – helping them speak with one image, one voice, one visual vocabulary. Not only is it a really nice style, but the agency – Hoop Associates – went about it very sensitively and […]
