Cheltenham Illustration Awards

I was very shocked and pleased to find out on the weekend that I had been shortlisted to the final 30 student entries for the Cheltenham Illustration Awards.

Last year, I entered the Cheltenham Illustration Awards with my 'Deforestation' piece. The awards consistently produce beautiful and innovative illustrations. This year's competition was judged by illustration hero, Shaun Tan.

I didn't hear anything so assumed that my entry was unsuccessful. It was not until last weekend when I was casually flicking through the 2012 catalogue that I came across my work in the final 30 shortlisted entries in the student category. Needless to say, I was over the moon!

It's been a while

So! Life has been pretty crazy in the last few months, I got a job with The Great British Card Company as the inhouse illustrator so had to leave Swansea and move to Gloucester!

I've done a fair amount of freelance work and in the last few months so here you get it all in one go!

Watercolour Presents


I have been working on some new stuff for my portfolio. Need to get something in there to show some versatility so reached for the watercolours for the first time in about a year. Happy with most of it. Need to get some practice in!


PJ Bond just got his Vinyl EP repressed, he wanted a new design with a compass theme...here it is!

Hallmark Placement Over...

Very sad to leave the wonderful Hallmark studios, but I had an amazing time and met some really lovely talented people. It has definitely cemented in my mind that I'd like to work more in the Greetings Card Industry.

Here's some of the stuff that I got up to during my time there.
