August blogfest – day 11

I’ve just decided that my stack of identically black, and identically plain Moleskines needed a little organising. Only a little. I wrote vague contents description on the covers and spines, so that’ll help a bit when I’m trying to remember where I drew something.


Vaguely organised Moleskines.

I also made a little video of a leaf through one of those Moleskines…

August blogfest – day 5

Some process videos of recent illustration work. It’s always strange watching these back, like watching someone else draw. I never know where the pen or brush is going next.




Line Signal

My friend John Panton makes fantastic short films under the banner of Meat Bingo (best to ask him about the name).

His latest work is a perfect seven and a bit minutes of eerie film-making, set amongst the woods and mists of southwest England. It’s well worth watching – and then you should definitely check out the rest of his films.
