SPANA - The Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad

So I've been working for this brill charity who do some very important work saving animals in the poorest countries in the world. One of their aims is to educate children about the welfare of their animals and to try to do this in the most effective ways.

Hats off to SPANA they were granted funding for a travelling exhibition on a bus in Syria, wooo hooo!

I was asked to help out by creating some informative drawings to tell the story of the life of the Onager in Syria beginning from the time when it was hunted. Here are some photo's of the bus.

Just what you've bean waiting for...

I've just finished working on a logo and branding for a new fruit and veg shop called Dig-in on Church Road in St George, Bristol. It's been really fun and I'm very pleased with the result!

Alex and Chloe wanted a logo that was fresh and lively which incorporated an illustrated vegetable and would be suited to their interior which is decked out with reclaimed wood and lovely bits.

In a couple of weeks I'll be heading down to paint the sign for the front of the shop. Pretty excited about that...and tasting their new crunchy apples from Taunton.

Here's a draft cover illustration that I did for Inspired Times Magazine in Bristol...For their summer issue. Have come to realise that you don't get much work done as a freelancer in the summer...but then again thats the bonus of working freelance - hmm I think I'll take the day off and bask in the sun today!

Thinking of painting a new series now, with some Cheddar to go with it...Ooo and maybe some crackers?

Wedding Anniversary Gift

A friend of mine from Bath was looking for a gift to give her hubby on their first wedding anniversary - and as the theme for the first year is 'paper' she asked me to do an illustration of them together as they were on their wedding.
A little belated, but here it is...I really enjoyed it, would love to do more like this!
