Calendar 2013

Here an image of my new hand-printed calendar for 2013. It is a three colour screen-print and can be purchased from the Red Door Gallery, Curiouser and Curiouser, Marchmont Gallery, from the Edinburgh Printmakers gallery-shop and from the wonderful cafe-gallery Bon Papillon in Edinburgh. Although personally I cant quite believe 2012 is almost over, I hope this calendar gives some positive thoughts for the fast approaching new year.
If you have the chance to drop by Bon Papillon before Christmas, they currently have a group exhibition on, also featuring a few of my prints.

Bird Tattoo

This snapshot has been taken at a James Yorkston concert, for whom I illustrated an album cover in 2006. I was delighted to see that one of the birds from the illustration is now a tattoo.

Marchmont Gallery

Belatedly some shots from the Marchmont Gallery. Fellow printmaker Rosie Walters and myself were chosen to be artists of the month and our work was displayed in the gallery throughout August.

What Counts?

Here are some pictures of a commission I have been working on this year for postgraduate Rosa Martens from the Netherlands. Rosa's thesis, titled 'What counts? Cognitive Development and Arithmetical Performance. The Role of Child- and Environment-Related Factors' is published by Neuropsych Publishers. I hugely enjoyed working on this project and the challenge of coming up with illustrations for such a complex subject, especially since it deals with issues relating to childhood. The commission included a cover illustration and 7 chapter illustrations.

Curiouser and Curiouser news

Recently I designed a small series of greeting cards for Edinburgh based gallery Curiouser and Curiouser. The gallery asked a group of illustrators to contribute some designs for a range of original cards and includes work from Eleni Kalorkoti, Kate McLelland  and many more.
The greeting cards can be purchased from Curiouser and Curiouser as well as from many other shops across the UK and beyond. For more information just take a look at the Curiouser web page.


Here some drawings from the sketching-process for the Owl Lover's calendar.

The colouring book about endangered species features artwork by illustrators Karoline Rerrie, Ruth Green, Gemma Correll, Kate Hindley, Beth Morrison, Helen Entwisle and myself.
