Here are some badges that I did especially for my sister. She wanted some badges to put on her satchel for work with her husbands, her own and my niece’s initials on. If anyone is interested in me doing personalised badges of any sort drop me an email.

Hmmmmm, badger

ImageImageImageThese were some pieces I sent into Make-Away in Brighton. Their opening a pop-up shop for a month as of the 3rd November. My work wasn’t chosen which is always slightly disheartening but I still really like these and thought they might make quite cool screen prints for a tote bag or something. They were only for one colour so I wasn’t entirely sure how I should go about the design. I really love the badger, I know its somewhat simplistic but I thought it was quite relevant what with everything with the badger cull going on. It applied to the fact that the government are back peddling on it due to the massive amount its going to cost – £4 million to be exact. The other piece is a clearer look at one of the designs I did on one of my dolls. An extension of the Miscellaneous Sideshow. The last one is pretty self-explanatory, I think I’ve pressed how much I love hand drawn lettering. Maybe this wouldn’t appeal to everyone because its not obviously Christmassy, but I adore its Burtonesque style.

Sketchbook Covers


Whenever I start a new sketchbook, doesn’t matter whats its for, I always label them in some way. Now this may sound twee but it gets me in the right frame of mind for some reason to get on and do something. I love typography and so this is why i enjoy the process so much of designing the front cover of my sketchbook. Here are a few I’ve done for university. Bits&Bobs, Research and Development. I don’t know if anyone else feels like this but when i create a sketchbook, every little thing is an idea that has been developed. I struggled a fair bit with this in uni because they wanted it to be clearly documented in stages but thats not how I work unfortunately. Even the lettering I do on my front covers contribute in some way to the final outcome.
