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!
I’ve created some festive gift wrap. Hoes hoe-ing, crowded penguins, hand painted jingle bells lyrics & different varieties of tree. They’re on sale right now on etsy. Visit my shop here if you’d like a look.
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.
Last month I graduated from the University of Ulster, Belfast in BDes (Hons) Design for Visual Communication. Including foundation and placement year, it’s been five years; a lot of work but a lot of fun too. It’s time to enter the real world now.
New Blood is D&AD’s annual exhibition of the best graduating talent from across the UK. Five of us from uni traveled to London and exhibited our work; Chris Dunlop, Ronan Lunney, Heather Browne, Winnie Shek and myself.
With around 100 booths, and a lot of amazing work on show, it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. Our booth had a minimal approach, playing with the theme of miniature. We each created separate mini exhibitions, within card boxes, to showcase our work. This invites the viewer to peep in and engage with our work at a close level. We were really excited to hear we were nominated for ‘Best Stand’.
Some close up shots of my box. The top ‘gallery’ shows my RAP N RECIPE project.
The bottom peep holes show the ‘cinema room’ where my ‘Time Well Spent’ animation played on a constant loop. Check it out here, if you weren’t able to catch the peepshow in London.
