GMCC Summer Showcase Branding

This summer, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce launched their first ever Summer Showcase event – a jam-packed evening full of delicious food and drink, networking and top class entertainment.

During the lead up, I was asked to work alongside the Chamber’s Marketing Team to create a visual identity that was both in keeping with the Chamber of Commerce branding, whilst also being recognisable as a stand alone design.

Specimen Characters Vol 3

I finished up another set of designs for my ongoing Specimen Series, adding to my army of colourful quirky characters! I’m taking my time with the series, working on them during my breaks, playing around and experimenting as I go.

MIFA Project: Amr Warda

The 2018 FIFA World Cup Panini sticker book contains 682 stickers featuring players, stadiums and badges from the 32 nations taking part. However, as the book is released in April and the National Team Squads aren’t announced until May, that often means some footballers aren’t included in the book.

This year, 254 players in total will be at the World Cup but missing from the official sticker album. The aim of the MIFA Project is to focus on those who have been missed out, by illustrating them instead. Designer Dave Will has brought together over 200 artists from across the globe to illustrate the missing players. I was asked to illustrate Amr Warda from the Egyptian Team.

#TwitterArtExhibit 2018

The #TwitterArtExhibit is an annual exhibition which invites artists of all skill levels from across the world to donate an original piece of post card sized artwork to raise funds for an elected charity in the host country.

Here’s my submission (above) which was created using watercolours, posca paint pens and a bit of collaging. I usually struggle with watercolours but after watching some YouTube tutorials and experimenting with layering, I found a technique that worked and ended up having fun with it.

The Exhibit runs from April 7 to April 29 at the Strathnairn Arts Gallery in Canberra, Australia. The elected charity for this year’s show is the Pegasus Riding for the Disabled of the ACT Inc.

As the exhibition name suggests, Twitter plays a big part in the event so if you can’t make it in person, head over to @twitrartexhibit where the admins are sharing artworks and photos from the event.

Happy Halloween!

I love Halloween – mainly because it’s the perfect excuse to create illustrations of weird monsters and supernatural characters!

This year, I’ve also created some limited edition mini prints and stickers, which I’ve mailed out to clients and patrons with some sweet treats. The rest are destined for an #ArtDrop mission around Manchester’s Northern Quarter – find one and it’s yours!

I don’t do many print releases these days so I’ve made this one extra special.

This 9×9″ Happy Fox is printed on a lush 300gsm smooth rag with vibrant archival inks. There are only 25 prints available in this design, with each one hand signed and numbered in pencil on the reverse.
