An Editorial & a new blog

 A new editorial illustration i made today, Ive never really done them before and i can't deny i find them daunting, this is for an article about visiting Sunday farmers markets, so an easy beginning. 

Ive moved over to a new Tumblr site, so will be posting over there from now on,

A hare

I got some advice from an illustrator recently,"you should do more animals, people like animals."

This is a lost and weary hare.

A Garden Series of Woodcuts

Just some Shoddy quick shots of a project I'm working on at the moment, 
the first pulls of some new woodcuts, intended to be part of a larger series... 

Currently fiercely enjoying my excellent, unemployed, cold November mornings.

Finding Swoon in Oaxaca.

 The best surprise i could fathom. 

Small independent print workshops, Oaxaca

I sought out as many of them as i could whilst i was in Oaxaca, brilliant and exciting, small, co-operatively run print studios. Run by young and active artists around the city, these studios are inspiring, they have rigged up there own equipment using what they can and initiative, making a free and mobilising atmosphere. Music was blearing and all the guys i met were 
wicked, truly motivated (they were all guys) and bloody talented.
 It was by far the most inspiring experience I've had yet. 
Print making is still very much alive in Mexico.

Their work out on the street.
