This is a lady I see in my local town fairly regularly, casually condemning us all to hell and preaching the divinity of jesus at a rather loud volume… she’s quite the character!

Quick sketch for The Circus of Illustration's weekly doodle challenge. What do the 50s mean to you. Obviously it means Marilyn!

Check out the super cute easter bunting I designed for the Circus of Illustrations Easter workshops last Saturday. It went down really well, the kids loved it and if I’m honest it’s going to be up all over my house this easter weekend too! :)

The Bedford Revolution! Erica Roffe, my wonderful editor in chief at The Bedford Clanger is at it again, making Bedford a better place by asking people to sign up to the revolution. Lets use local shops, see a local band play live, support a local theatre, use the library and we can encourage Bedford to grow in all kinds of positive directions. Sign up and get your hands on a badge and a postcard, maybe send it to another town and encourage their own revolution!

A few months ago I was invited down to Shefford library to celebrate their grand re-opening with a Multi-media Mural workshop. The theme was Mythical Maze to tie in with this summer’s reading challenge, and over two hours myself and 6 talented young people worked with stamps, collage, pens, pastels and A LOT of pritt-stick to recreate my rough design on on a massive A0 board! Check out the comparison! I’d say we got it pretty much spot on :) 


Many thanks to Jo, Victoria and the library staff for all their help on the day! (oh and my mum for driving me there!)

So I went to see Maleficent today and it was amazing! Angelina really added so many dimensions to her character; equal parts hilarious, endearing and terrifying all at once. I could help but doodle as soon as I came home…

Here are the latest pieces I’ve illustrated as part of a 1950s exhibition with The Circus of Illustration. These and a whole host of other fabulous work can be seen at BedPop on the High Street in Bedford every weekend until the 8th June. There are lots of amazing prints available and we are currently organising a series of workshops (kicked off rather fabulously by Dress-Up Drawing last week) so be sure to check it out!

My my my! Who is this? Why it’s Fantastic Mr Fox himself. But quiet now, old Mr Fox looks like he’s up to something. He’s obviously busy preparing for Novus Theatre’s upcoming production and we don’t want him to get caught ;)

Its the neeeww Clanger! Loved laying this one out, Issue 3 and it’s the best yet we think. If you’re from Bedford town you’ll be seeing these popping up sometime next week. Get one while you can!
(and yes that is my bedford revolution postcard in the top right corner there, some shameless promotion on my part :p sorry/not sorry)

The sun is out properly for the first time today (i.e. I haven’t had to turn the heating up!) and it put me in a springtime mood…
