RCA Secret postcards 2016

1 and 2 blue yellow copy 2 and 1 yellow blue copy 3 yellow blue copy

Time has whizzed by and I haven’t yet shared my postcards from this year’s RCA secret. It’s always a great event, the money raised from the sale of cards goes to support the Royal College of Art students and the possibility of scooping up a little piece of work that you love is brilliant!

These are my three cards in acrylic paint, printing ink and pen and ink. Two for the London show, one for the Dubai show. I was thrilled that the buyers from the London show both got in touch.

Secret 7″

I didn’t make the show for Secret 7″ this year.  They received 7000 entries so I don’t feel too bad about this especially as I was really pleased with the pieces I drew – sleeves for At Last, Worry and Dream 3.  http://secret-7.com/

Drawing Dave – The exhibition 10 – 14 May Birmingham

The Drawing Dave exhibition of… well… drawings of Daves… launches tomorrow night (Tuesday 10th May) at Aceface Barbers, Bristol Street, Birmingham.


If you’re in the area go and take a look, there’s a limited edition beer by Two Towers Brewery and drawings by 50 artists and it looks like a great venue. After the exhibition the work will be available to buy via auction with all proceeds going to Pancreatic Cancer UK. You’ll find all the details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/515791541958396/


Here’s what the curator has to say:

“An exhibition of ‘Daves’ drawn by 50 artists to support Pancreatic Cancer UK.

Following the death of the ‘Only Fools and Horses’ star Roger Lloyd Pack in 2014, Pancreatic Cancer UK launched a national fundraiser ‘Call Everyone Dave Day’ inspired by the character that Roger famously played.

As part of this fundraising initiative artist Dan Genders is raising money for the charity by inviting artists, illustrators and celebrities to draw a famous Dave that will be sold via a silent auction. Dan is working with curator, Trevor Pitt, to organise an exhibition of the Dave artwork at the Secret Cellar, which is part of AceFace Barbers on Bristol Street, Birmingham.

The public will be able to view the exhibition at AceFace from 10th to 14th May 2016. Following the exhibition all the artwork will be available to buy via an eBay auction with all the funds going directly the charity.

silly illustration to make Tuesday more cheerful

do something, make something

when i catch myself starting to flag/get down/procrastinate/take myself too seriously (that last one especially) there’s a phrase that i scrawl on my sketchbook to give myself a kick.  i thought i’d illustrate it, everything’s better with drawings.
