Happy Birthday Noah!

A few illustrations to celebrate the birth of my little nephew Noah Henry an hour ago! This is the peachick, which Noah is as he is a Peacock like me.

A few other baby birds to be friends with the Peachick!

En Avril un soir

Just a couple of pics taken after a brief April shower. The garden was looking lush and verdant after the downpour, though the sheep looked a little unimpressed!

Alan Turing Year

I was so pleased and proud to be asked to produce illustrations for the Alan Turing Year celebrations, marking the centenary of his birth.  I have been fascinated by Turing for some time now and jumped at the chance to design the promotion poster (above, yellow) and a first day cover for the Bletchley Park Post Office (above, blue).  There was a great deal of press interest with the latter, resulting with my radio debut on Heather Stott's lunchtime show on Radio Manchester.  It was so much fun!

Nutcracking Christmas!

An illustration for the brilliant 26 Stories project, with one illustration and story for every day leading up to Christmas.  This one was based on a fantastic story by Tom Collins about the mysterious Nutcracker.  Great fun to do!

The Birds Are Ready

Stay in your homes.  The birds have been mobilised.
They have beaks and they're not afraid to use them.

Bad boy, naughty boy, in your bed!

Some illustrations for a Children's Book about a rather naughty border collie.  No animals were harmed in the making of this blog post.

Amelia's Magazine

A quickie illustration for the gorgeous Amelia's Magazine, and for a lovely cause too.  Do have a look at the article and youtube thingy, it's rather brilliant.
