Nobrow Issue 1 Has Arrived!

Today at Nobrow we have received the first copies of Nobrow Issue 1, a new bi-annual publication which will feature some of the best illustration talent around. The magazine looks absolutely amazing, so well done to everyone involved.

The theme of this first issue is 'Gods & Monsters,' and features the likes of Ben Newman, my good friend and fellow Evening Tweeder Sarah King, multi-award winning illustrators BlexBolex and Paul Blow, as well as Stuart Kolakovic, who also designed the cover (pictured).

The Magazine and all of its content will be exhibited at the bar and exhibition space DreamBagsJaguarShoes on Kingsland Road, London from the 15th May.

Drawing Tops

Yesterday I met up with Mr Thomas Forsyth to talk about a couple of projects we've got lined up for the coming months. Tom has been a regular feature of the Evening Tweed pages, and I'm sure many of you will know his work which has been pasted all over the international blog scene over the last few months. One project in particular which has been getting a lot of attention is his Drawing Tops. He very kindly gave me one of these tops as a birthday present, and it's an absolute beauty. To grab yourself one of these gorgeous hand-crafted tops visit his website - www.thomasforsyth.com

So, welcome to my new blog. This will be the home to my many thoughts and adventures over the coming months. As I have mentioned in my bio I am a freelance designer/illustrator from London, UK, currently also working part-time at East London-based publishing studio NoBrow. Over the next couple of months it looks like things are going to be very busy, what with the upcoming release of NoBrow Magazine Issue 1, and various freelance projects. For now, here's a quick glimpse of a piece I have recently made for NoBrow's upcoming website, which I am currently in the process of designing. More about this here.
