Collection // Sketchbook

As I produce most of my illustations digitally these days I’ve been experimenting with using sketchbooks and breaking away from just using them for.. well, sketches.

I’ve been collecting little random bits and pieces, some of it from my archive of junk, some of it new stuff that I’ve find and don’t want to use.

I have this whole book avaible for patrons to download as a PDF. Here’s a selection of pages from it.

Things that are included on these pages are:
– A photo of a little scooter type thing I took in Japan in 2017
– Some stamps from some old postcards I found in a cupboard under the stairs
– A collage of miscellaneous vintage scrapbook clippings
– A photocopy of a punk? from a magazine spread from college(??)
– A Dragon Ball GT trading card from holiday to spain in 2001
– Ticket from the second time I went to a Polysics gig
– The first printed, vinyl sticker I ever made circa 2008ish

No Wave


As I continue dipping my toe in to other forms of image making I’ve recently become quite fond of making things in this sort of vapor-wave/ Y2K aesthetic/ rave poster style. I’ve always been find of Takeshi Murakami but lately I’ve gotten very much back in to his work and that’s very much informing what I’ve been making.

I’ve been thinking alot about iconography and reoccuring themes. With time, as and when I get the chance, I’ll be blurring the lines more and more between my illustration work and the more experimental stuff like the images in this post.

Begin Blog

I feel funny about the internet.
It’s become something werid. Everything is in one of a handful of places.
Convenience is.. convenient. But it’s not necessarily a good thing. We need to start exploring again. But maybe we also need to just, step back a bit.

Why am I starting this blog? I’m not sure. I don’t want to commit to making a whole website. I also want something I can easliy update and I don’t want those updates to get lost in a barrge of other posts as everyone scrambles for attention on a timeline/dashboard/wall. I want a place to put my work that isn’t tied down to being just another account on social media because althought it’s done great things for art and helped to get artists work seen by an audience with ease, I feel social media has also ruined art in a way.

Maybe we can make this a trend?
