So, I started a new sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project 2013 tour, finishing two spreads in the process. I’ll keep this blog updated when and where I get more drawings done.

Avocado Screen Print

Avocado - My Printing Stencils

This freshly finished screen print is the second in a series of three and I’ve called it ‘Avocado’. The first can be seen here. The pattern was line drawn on cartridge paper and scanned digitally.

Sketchbook Project 2012

Hello, I started designing up a Munnyworld vinyl model a few weeks back and thought I’d share my progress here. If you don’t know what Munnyworld is, then I’ll explain. They’re  vinyl toys made by Kid Robot. You buy them blank and design them up how you see fit using whatever you see fit. They’re […]
