Summer Fox, Winter Fox

The Arctic Fox is one of the few animals that changes the colour of it's pelt to adapt to the changing seasons and environment. My next new, two sided cushion design plays with this theme and features my Fox design in Summer red and Winter white.

Gold Bear, Silver Bear

Artwork has been sent to the printer and producer of the next cushion design for the new year. 'Gold Bear, Silver Bear' will be very similar to my first bear cushion design but printed in a warm yellow and slate grey.

Happy Holidays

If you popped by thank you and I wish you Happy Holidays and if you didn't then hopefully see you in 2013.

Bonnet shot

This yellow leaf lay sprawled about the bonnet of a blue car one bright Autumn day - you can't miss an opportunity like this, so I got out my iphone and snapped it.

Birds eye view

The mini series of gull prints have been added to my online shop including soon close ups of the screen prints, as I believe it's always handy to see them up close, but colours will vary from what is seen on screen.

Top Up at Pop Up

The pop up shop that is Howkapow is going from strength to strength during the festive period. Founders, Cat and Rog How have been granted an extended use of the retail unit in Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol into the new year, which is good news all round. I've recently delivered a top up of work including cushions, prints and cards.

Curl up with a Fox

This will be my next cotton cushion design to hopefully emerge in the new year. On the same theme as being a double sided cushion - the fox design will have a reversed white winter coat one side and a red summer coat the other. I'll keep you posted.

Tree in a box

Along with my Colour Zoo range of cards I have also hand printed a box to hold my foiled Xmas Tree cards. Paul Smith NYC have recently put in an order for these designs. The box was made and printed in Bristol and contained two of three different designs.

New York, Old Map

Time for some show and tell about a splendid bit of print. This fold out Citymap of New York was printed in what was West Germany by Falk-Verlag, Hamburg in the early 70s. It is particularly special as it's map detail is so clear in vivid colour with an ingenious fold out mechanism inside.
