St Bride Talk & new edition of 'Voice of all the Gods'

22 Mar, 2013

My talk at St Bride in London on 26th March is fast approaching. Being an introvert I have some trepidation but I'm also looking forward to it. A new edition of 'The Voice of all the Gods' print will be available on the night. This colourway is hand finished with 23.5 carat gold leaf. I'm really pleased with how it has turned out. You can catch a glimpse of it here. For the St Bride event only this edition will be available at a £20 discount. Any remaining prints will then become available online via the usual channels after the event.

Pick Me Up 2013

04 Mar, 2013

I feel honoured to have been invited to spend a day at 'Pick Me Up' Graphic Arts Festival in London this year doing a 'Daily Special'. The idea is I set up shop for the day writing out peoples names in my best fancy handwriting for hard cash. I will also be selling prints and originals which will be available for the duration of the event in the Pick Me Up shop. Event details here, more to follow in due course.
