Superbat is well and truly out there now and it's been a busy time doing events at shops and schools. Getting the hang of it now and my friend has also made me a Superbat hoodie which makes me look ridiculous but seems to work well! I've even managed to get Superbat into the window at Waterstones Piccadilly.
This is my first project for the Royal Museums Greenwich. Redesigning their 'Night Sky' range.
I'm currently working on some merchandise for The Queen's House, another one of their museums.
If I had a penny for every time this logo has appeared, I would probably be living on my own tropical island by now, surrounded by servants and sipping a Pina Colada. Unfortunately my business acumen is poor and I did the Channel 5 Milkshake! logo for a rather small fixed fee. Never mind, at least I have the satisfaction of knowing it's still going strong after 10 years and has survived many channel rebrands!
When IWM asked me to design a plain tie, I thought, this is my lucky day. I immediately sent back a photo of a plain tie and put my feet up. Then they explained that they wanted a plane tie, with aircraft on it, so I took my feet down and designed this...its a bit like an airfix kit featuring aeroplanes housed at IWM Duxford. A perfect gift for plane spotters with a wedding to go to.
Design for Zombie book for Penguin, based on the running app, where people pretend to be running away from Zombies.
I've come up with the idea for a range of books, based on quite a poor pun BIOGRAPHIC books are famous people's biographies in infographics. Get it!? Anyway, the first two are out now! More coming (Warhol, Kahlo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Jane Austen, Shakespeare) in February. Then loads after that!
I love beer so you can imagine how excited I was when IWM asked me to design a label for their Old Contemptible Pale Ale.
Been a busy few months working on various random bits and bobs... Stuff for IWM and Royal Museums Greenwich as well as designing a book on Zombies for Penguin and currently painting a book cover about Pigs for them too... Got my old school sign writing head on. Also just finished 4 books on artists, the first of my BIOGRAPHIC range - MONET and VAN GOGH out in October i think and finished my kids book for Scholastic. Which is out in March 2017 - Phew! Nothing I can show you yet so i could be lying. Watch this blank space!
Just designed the merchandise for the second year of the IWM Duxford Airshows. This year the brief was to keep the spitfire but give it a bit of an American feel. They are available at http://www.iwmshop.org.uk/category/1491/Duxford_Air_Shows
Design for cover of handy Lewes magazine Viva Lewes. A phrenology head featuring all the articles featured inside.
It's always nice to see a famous face next to something you've done and who better than granite faced silver fox George Clooney, who is involved in the Armenian human rights organisation https://auroraprize.com/en/ which I did the logo for.
Had a lovely run in the hills this morning. I took my little camera for once and even though I am one of the world's worst nature photographers, I managed to get a shot of a couple of green woodpeckers and some deer, including ones with horns! Also saw two buzzards but they were too quick for me.
Just designed a range of merchandise for Imperial War Museum, featuring one of the most iconic aircraft in the world. This includes a colour changing mug.
Design for a range of some of Winston Churchill's favourite sweets, tea and biscuits for Imperial War Museum.

Currently working on designs based on some of the silly poems I've written.
