In the first weekend of June I exhibited new work in the ‘ARTY FARTY’ show just off Brick Lane in London. The illustration collective Hero Of Switzerland organised the exhibition and invited a handful of other artists to pitch in. The theme was to reimagine famous works of art in your own unique style, humour and flair.

I created these two illustrations based on Salvador Dali’s ‘Lobster Telephone’. I was surprised to find a few of the other artists picked this as their inspiration source too, what are the chances? Fortunately everyone produced different results.

I also created an illustration based on René Magritte’s Golconda, switching the raining men for raining cats and dogs.

The gallery flooded with people checking out the selection of prints, a few sculpture pieces as well as this fun painting by Adam Graff, which was a scream (not even sorry).

My Rap N Recipes illustrations are available for a limited time as t-shirts, vests & sweatshirts on the Ohh Deer shop. Here are the three I’ve submitted to their competition shop. This shows what happens when you place rappers in the kitchen – they bake! It’s a fresh fusion.

Snoop Dogg (or Snoop Lion) is making pancakes (or p-cakes as he might say) & droppin’ It Like It’s Hot. Jay Z has 99 problems but a bitch batch ain’t one. My final entry is of The Black Eyed Peas with their lesser known song ‘Don’t Phunk With My Heart Tart.’ There’s a surprise appearance from Jason Biggs, from American pie…

Here are the tops on Ohh Deer –

Every facebook share, like & tweet gathers up points which helps me in the competition, so I’d be really grateful of any shares. And of course, if you really like them, feel free to buy one!🙂
Ohh Deer will be influenced by the sales and shares an entry receives when they are choosing their new contributor. I’d really love to be their new contributor. It’s a stiff competition but you’ve got to be in it to win it!

 

 

 

 

My colourful animal illustrations are now available on cushions! I have entered the Ohh Deer Pillow Fight competition. Hundreds of creatives have entered hoping to be the next permanent contributor to this illustrative collective. Ohh Deer cushions are usually £35 but these are only £25 during the competition period. They are available to buy until 4th November. Check them out! The Sleepy Hippo The Melancholic Monkey The Clumsy Flamingo

What’s your feelings on otters? Love them, hate them, ambivalent? Before this year I never really gave them much thought. However when I was researching different animals to include in a children’s picture book, I discovered just how amazing otters are.

They’re highly intelligent with the ability to create and use tools just like monkeys and apes. They also exhibit human behaviour, such as holding hands. They often do this when they’re resting in water so they don’t drift apart.

Enjoy these few pictures and gifs and then check out The Daily Otter for all your otter needs.

These are the two drawings of otters I used in my book. He was meant to be playing ball, but he hit it too hard with his tail. Cheeky thing.
