Over the past few months I’ve been leaving Free Art packs in various locations in Central Manchester for people to find and keep. Each pack contains a limited edition (1/10) art print, stickers, and a handwritten note to the recipient.
I usually spend time a fair amount of time deliberating before adding my mark to a new Collab Nation piece – but when I got my Stage 2 through from Korp I immediately knew what I was going to add!
One of my favourite collaborative art projects, Collab Nation, is back for Experiment 5!
This huge international drawing project has each participating artist starting a drawing on A3 paper, then sending it on to the next artist for them to add to the piece. This continues until 4 artists have added their mark to the drawing. The process produces awesome and brilliantly unpredictable results!
I’ve kept up with my sketchbooking since starting up again last year. I’m being a bit less precious with pages these days and filling them up with ideas more quickly.
There’s a mix of themes in this compilation as I’ve been jumping back and forth between a few different things – studies, experiments, patterns, and character doodles.

I had the pleasure of painting at Ymuno Festival last weekend with the awesome Happy Medium crew – Mr Kobo, Merecoincidence, Topher and Kabi Jedhagen.
The vibrant little festival was held in a pretty meadow in North Wales. The happy atmosphere and good company in amongst the picturesque surroundings was just what I needed to recharge after a busy week in the studio. The whole day was a blast and I love how our collab wall turned out!
I love how this collab piece has turned out! Featuring 91 different artists in one mad digital mash up put together by SPZero76. Can you spot my bunny character in the mix?
Bristol folks! I’ll have a new piece in the F(L)IGHT Exhibition opening 16 June 2016 at Hamilton House Gallery Space in Stokes Croft.
The show features 140 artists, illustrators, street artists and image makers, who’ve all created works featuring a white dove. What’s more, each of the works are being sold for a very affordable £50 each, with a proportion of exhibition sales will be donated to charities War Child and Veterans for Peace.
I’ve been messing around with air dry clay again and have crafted a set of cosmic heart trinkets to do another Art Drop with!
The trinkets were hand cut from flattened clay, then painted using a mix of metallic acrylic paints layered with varnish and paint pen. The process was a bit of an experiment but I was happy with what I learned.
I’ve hung a handful of these trinkets in spots around Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Find one and it’s yours!
Cities of Hope is a week long festival which has seen 9 internationally renowned street artists, along with a few local legends, create landmark large scale murals across Manchester’s Northern Quarter to raise awareness for a range of social justice issues, with each being linked to a local charity.
