Another limited edition run of 7 screen prints.
Very inspirational little exhibition and series of workshops that happened in Falmouth a few weeks ago. My friend also had a great little piece in the exhibition which was an illustrated sleeping bag with mountain pillows. I was very tempted to try and have a sleep in it at the gallery.

Using the title "Exit Brooklyn" as a starting point, I explored ideas in my sketchbook based around the story of a man of Norwegian descent who takes his first ever trip from America to Norway and goes exploring on his bike. This was a lot of fun to research and I am particularly pleased with the colour scheme which is centred around the typography and colour palette I looked at on the New York Subway system.
Over the last few weeks and I have been really sketching hard in my sketchbooks. My process of drawing and doodling is really satisfying right now and I'm bringing this way of working slowly into the way I create final pieces. I may do a post soon on my various sketchbooks and the weird sort of "system" I have settled into, on deciding which one to use at any given time. For now here is a snippet of a current sketchbook and lots of wonderful inspiration material that I have been collecting.
My very first 2 page comic. It's the next step up from the 4 panel journal comics I did a few months back and I feel that I am slowly learning more about drawing comics. The theme for this comic was journey so obviously I drew a dude riding a giant pig.
A great evening at the first and second year Illustration Exhibition in Falmouth town this week. There seemed to be plenty of people around on the opening night and the combination of both years showing their work together worked really well. Already looking forward to the show next year. I will post some links to some of the people I photographed down below.
