Foyles Cafe

Foyles Cafe is one of my favourite cafes in London and one of my favourite places to draw. Here's a couple of pages from earlier in the week.

"Felt Mistress : Creature Couture" launch portraits

We had a great night last night at the Creature Couture launch at Foyles. Thanks to everyone who came and everyone who bought a book. Here's a couple of the portraits I drew in people's books (all grabbed from other people's Instagram streams! Sorry and thank you!). Top to bottom - Sarah McIntyre, Rian Hughes, Lizz Lunney.

Milk




Here's my print for the DunneFrankowski One Year Anniversary show. Each artist was given a piece of data from the coffee shop's spreadsheets to illustrate. I had 1526.5 litres of milk. I interpreted it as a Bond-style, milk-obsessed crime lord's ransom. You can buy a limited A2 print of it HERE.

Snowman's Land

Here's the main image for my exhibition, Snowman's Land, starting in the Foyles cafe (Charing Cross Road, London) on the 18th of December. It's a continuation of my "Imagined Landscapes" series but with a Christmas slant. We've also got a Felt Mistress exhibition in the gallery on the 3rd floor from the 11th of December (same day as the book launch). It's a bit of a takeover!

I'm going to try and post an image a day on the run up to Christmas. Let's see how that goes....

Thought Bubble, Leeds

We had a great time at Thought Bubble. Thanks to everyone who came along and thanks to everyone who bought stuff from us. It was the first time our book was available to buy so it was a pretty exciting weekend all round. Here's a pic of us behind our table (courtesy of the Forbidden Planet blog). If you missed out on buying any of our wares it's all still available from my shop and Louise's.
Thank you!

Movember - Win Montgomery Venk!


Visit the Gallery of Mo and for just A POUND you could win Montgomery Venk. Tickets are £1 each but you can buy as many as you want. We (me and Felty) created Montgomery exclusively for Movember. Here's a little bit about him -

Montgomery is currently working on a biography of Lee Hazelwood which focuses primarily on the impact his moustache had on his musical oeuvre (an angle that he feels has been oddly overlooked by most biographers). He divides his time between a hut in the Mojave Desert and a transport cafe on the outskirts of Macclesfield - "When writing I find it essential to be near either a Joshua tree or a mixed grill". Montgomery likes his tea "the colour of a rusty penny" and his Bourbon neat.


All proceeds go to Movember charity. What are you waiting for?!

Tippy's coming - look busy!


To coincide with the release of the 400 page behemoth that is "Felt Mistress : Creature Couture" (which I'm sure I've mentioned once or twice!) comes the very first Felt Mistress vinyl toy. And who better to immortalised in vinyl than everyone's favourite orange-booted, wide eyed, sugar buzzer Tippy! Crazy Label (the brilliant company who produced my Inspector Cumulus figure last year) have created a standard Tippy (available from designer toy stockists worldwide) and a limited edition gold Tippy. Gold Tippy will be available exclusively from Blank Slate books when you order the special "Creature Couture/Gold Tippy" edition by simply clicking HERE. Here's some pics of both versions and Gold Tippy in his special edition box designed by Woodrow Phoenix. Let Tippy into your life, you know you want to!

Happy Hallowe'en!

Jolly Nosferatu wants you to have a great Hallowe'en. In fact he hopes it's "bleedin' t'riffic!".


Robert Ball suggested the name "Nice Feratu". Damn you, Robert! I wish I'd thought of that!

Spirou

Here's some recent illustrations for Spirou (always a pleasure to work for Spirou!). This time I had to drawn human flesh empanadas, a giant spider swarm and a human brain with a robot body (I love my job!). Here's the illustrations and how some of them appeared on the page.

Landscape


A page out of my sketchbook (a brushpen drawing) coloured in Photoshop. I'm currently putting together a book of my imaginary landscape drawings and I need something for the cover.
