Brighton Illustration: Then, Now, After

Brighton Illustration: Then, Now, After…

A survey of recent work from graduates & staff at the University of Brighton.
18 January - 14 February,  2013

University of Brighton Gallery
58-67 Grand Parade, Brighton, BN2 0JY
Mon - Sat 10am - 5pm

My work will be shown along with 130 others at this show, opening today at Brighton university.  There is a great and eclectic mix of illustrators involved (all alumni of the fantastic Brighton university Illustration course) including Quentin Blake, George Hardie, Raymond Briggs, John Vernon Lord and more; I think definitely worth a trip to the seaside for.

Lazerian Gerald

Some time ago, I was asked by the folks at Lazerian, a Manchester-based creative practice, to design a print for a project involving their mascot: a dog named Gerald.  Along with 50 other artists and illustrators, I created a pattern to customise a limited edition Gerald, which will be sold as a kit and then is built to make a paper sculpture.

The idea for the pattern I designed came from reading about the Canis Major 'Greater Dog' star constellation.  The project interestingly came along while I was thinking a lot about patterns.  I wanted this one to remain quite fragmented and dispersed, to emulate the randomness of a star constellation.

The customised Gerald sculptures will soon be part of an exhibition, more on this soon

My sketchbook travels most places with me. It is quite a messy, unstructured thing. Several pages have fallen out of my current one in fact.

Whilst my solutions are usually realised in collage,  I always work out initial thoughts in drawing and mark making. 

Here are some recent pages; various ideas for projects and general thoughts
