Winter is next and I'll be finishing off a series of four Christmas cards for 2014 featuring scenes from Winterland. Both the Winter Moon and Sun will be printed as a silver and gold foil respectively and the rest of the scene will be hand screen printed in a second colour including mountains, forest, a town and icebergs.

'Night Owl' is an exclusive print for Nook Shop, London as part of the the London Design Festival 13-21 September 2014. On Twitter Nook Shop said 'Tweet Twoo' so I guess on here it would be...nothing connected worth trying actually. Try and make a visit to all that is LDF it should be design heaven fun.

Certainly was - when on a trip down Columbia Road in London's E2, I came across many independent pioneering stores and one stood out. Captured by sells a select collection of well designed and aesthetically pleasing products for the home as well as jewellery and clothing. It was a homely shrine devoted to good pure design and coffee served from a window.
Go buy at Something Else, Bristol. I popped in for the first time recently and was impressed by the collection of paper products including richly designed books, wrapping paper and stationery gifts. Happy to be stocking a few card designs there. It certainly had the clout of a contemporary London store, one that is quite unique to Bristol and about time.
It has to be the art event of the year - Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs. This landmark show explores the final chapter in his career in which he began 'carving into colour' and his series of spectacular cut-outs was born. It open tomorrow, 17 April until 7 September at Tate Modern, London.
I didn't know that this marvel existed. It's described as a hidden gem found in Cincinnati. Tucked inside the John Weld Peck Federal Building is a spectacular mural created by Charley Harper. This enormous ceramic tile mosaic spreads over two walls and features over 100 beautiful beasts.
There's only a handful of the Fluorescent Peacock left in the country. There are three species released as mini A5 prints. Each design is printed using two contrasting fluorescent inks. This rare find will be no more once the last has gone but you can spot them in their natural habitat which is Pick me Up, London at Unlimited's stand and online.
That's enough of puns and Peacocks, but before I go, the image above is of a recently made metal die that has been used to make an impression and foil block print my Peacock design in mirror silver foil as a limited edition print. The second part of the process is to screen print the second colour. They will be available soon at my online shop and at Pick Me Up, London with Unlimited.
Now in it's fifth year Pick Me Up is as usual being held at Somerset House, London. Unlimited of Brighton have been accepted to exhibit there once more and will be including new and current work of mine at their stand along with many other artists and designers. The graphic feast will run from 24 April to 5 May.
I've always thought that a butterfly entering a room is like being visited by a spirit or lost soul. It's a good feeling so bear with me and always try and let one escape if it happens to you. Peacocks are emerging right now in houses and gardens as they are one of Britain's few species that hibernates over the winter.
I wanted to print a few favourite colour combinations and so used my new Peacock design for this. Both A3 limited edition prints have been printed onto Fabriano 5 Smooth paper. Peacock Pink is printed in a dusty pink and bright cyan whereas Peacock Green, top, displays a bright sage green and deep red. Both are available at my online shop.
