Sketchbook Vol 1

I've published a collection of drawings from my sketchbook and imaginatively called it "Sketchbook Vol 1". It's 32 pages - Colour cover (270gsm, for those in the know) and black and white interiors (160gsm). It's beautifully printed by Ripe Digital (who I can heartily recommend). If this goes down well I may even do another.

Sketches for the FM Wonder Room cabinets

I did these sketches for the Wonder Room cabinets featuring the Felt Mistress characters. They weren't used in the end so I've posted them here along with a link to the actual finished character in their cabinet.

Felt Mistress Selfridges Christmas Window

If you follow me on Twitter or know me on Facebook you've probably seen me go on and on and on about the Felt Mistress window that Louise and I have got at Selfridges' Oxford Street store in London. It's a dream come true so just humour me for a tiny bit longer!

Selfridges theme this Christmas is play and we were delighted to be asked to contribute a dolls house window design to run over the course of their Christmas campaign. We produced a sketch of exactly the type of dolls house that we'd like our characters to inhabit and once it was approved we just ran with it. My illustration was printed onto MDF and the house was constructed by their excellent prop team. Louise made all the characters beautifully and I designed loads of accessories for the interior. We wanted it to be full of funny little details that you perhaps wouldn't notice at first glance. Not everything was produced so I've posted them here ( I'm particularly proud of the Eggheads team shot!) along with the original visuals.
