Ministry of Stories

Well hello there,  I thought it about time that I talk a bit about what I've been doing lately:

For the last  six months I have been volunteering at a wonderful place called the Ministry of Stories. Situated on the vibrant Hoxton street the Ministry provides creative writing workshops for young people in Hackney. During these workshops a class of young writers will come in to write a story and I have been helping out illustrating the stories as they write them, I then become a writing mentor to help them finish their stories individually. Here's an example of one of the stories:

You'll also find me volunteering at the ministry's rather unique shop called the Hoxton Street Monster Supplies Store. Products include tinned fear, human preserves and cubed earwax. If you can't make it to the shop there's also a monstrously good website:

I was also honored to receive the prestigious ' Minister of the Month' for November last year, and here's a bit about it on their blog:

Sketchbook drawings

Personalised Bibs

A friend has recently had a brand new (smells like baby) baby girl so as a gift I've made these personalised bibs from painted images and a little carry bag for them too.


More sketchbook work- later I made these dogs into bookmarks!

Sketchbook + too much time on my hands = new animals

Sketchbook experiment with watercolour

The view from our flat

Vorticist inspired card design

After visiting the 'Vorticist: Mainfesto for a modern World' exhibition at the Tate Britain earlier this year, I was inspired to produce a pastiche based on the Vorticist style. Less machinery and more nature in mine though, I'm not sure the Vorticists would be best pleased!

Poster work, The Big Machine

As it's been a veritable lifetime since I've uploaded anything you can now expect bundles of it to come at once.

Summer time: Here I've helped a friend with a few drawings for a poster based on a machine that she made.

Drawings of Faces

More Famous Faces


Great Weather for Tennis!

Hello Blog!

Its been a long while since I last updated, but I have been drawing!
I have also been busy moving to London and settling in!

I think I needed a bit more practice with drawing faces, as I hadn't done so much in my previous projects.. so here's some of my dad's favourite tennis players.
