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.

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
