Still feeling massively inspired by the Before, I Could Draw exhibition, I decided to re-imagine another piece of childhood artwork. This time it was a Christmas card I designed back in primary school (maybe age 9 or 10). It’s only loosely based on the original, but it’s not as different as you might think…
Anyway, hope you like!
Merry Christmas, all!
So hey, I was commissioned by Shortlist magazine to create an alternative Oldboy poster as part of an ongoing project involving some great artists. I was happy just to be asked but then after many, many aborted versions I somehow produced something I’m very happy with. Yeah. I know. I’m happy with my own work.
I might post a process blog, if I can find the time. In any case, you can check out the other posters in the gallery here. Some really nice stuff.
We have a new exhibition launching this Friday in our event space. Before I Could Draw brings together 16 illustrators with each one re-interpreting their own childhood drawings
Both the original childhood image and the new artwork will be displayed to highlight the growth of the artist and to hopefully inspire young doodlers to keep doodling
It runs from Friday 29th Nov at 6pm to Saturday 7th Dec at 2022NQ
This is us! Me and my friends! It’ll be great, so get yourself down to 2022.

Between organising one exhibition and preparing a print for another, I’ve somehow managed to create and submit something for consideration in Pictoplasma’s Character Selfies exhibition. Oh, wait. That’s still an exhibition. Not doing too well on the variety of news here, am I?
Anyway, fingers crossed that it’s chosen. Always fancied doing something with the character since his 3D toy design was aborted.
