the sunday market

This Sunday I'll have a stall at the weekly SUNDAY MARKET at Islington Mills, Salford. It'll be my third time doing the market and I'll be selling my handmade cards and books, original prints, screen-printed tote bags and also some very good homemade whiskey marmalade!

So, if you are in the Manchester area be sure to check it out!!

show at unicorn

This is a show of work, mostly prints, at Unicorn Grocery, 89 Albany Road, Chorlton, Manchester M21 0BN. (Between the olive oils and rice: it's in the hallway towards the toilets).

I am moving to Los Angeles at the end of the summer so would love to find homes for my prints and watercolors!

If you are in the area, please check it out (and then you can do your food shopping too)

I took a bit of time today to apply watercolor to some recent sketches. It's been a goal of mine to draw more from my imagination and memory as well as try to tell a story. Sometimes the most interesting images come from an open mind, unconcerned with recording an object from life. I had a lot of fun coloring them in, it was a bit like a coloring book!

Through the next few months I'll be travelling quite a bit and in September Jesse and I will be moving to Los Angeles! It's a very exciting time and I plan to keep a sketchbook journal throughout the summer to record these funny little illustrations.
