phew! I'm now back in rainy old England. The exhibition was a success. I managed to sell about half of my paintings and all of me postcards and met some really cool people at the gallery too. I can definitely recommend having a look round if you are ever in Tokyokiyoland. A BIG THANKS to all the staff, especially Nigel... a little slice of England in Japan.
Here are a few more scans of some of the paintings. Me camera is playing up so I can't upload any photos of the exhibition yet... but will do soon(ish)

Here is a little taster of some of the paintings and stuff that I've been doing for the exhibition. There's loads more, but I'm not going to post them till after the show. I've actually surprised myself with how many I've done....All are acrylic and posca pens on either canvas or cardboard.
See you in Tokyo!

I'm visiting the in-laws in Japan next month and having an exhibition in Tokyo while I'm over there. It's at the Design Festa Gallery, Harajuku and on from friday, 13th November until Sunday 15th. There will be new paintings, screenprints, toys and biscuits. Genki Genki!

Mr Postman just gave me a copy of Open Me Up, a new encyclopedia about the human body from Dorling Kindersley that I did an illustration for. Here is a badly scanned image of the spread. I think it looks lovely! Thanks Hoa!!!

Not done much lately that is bloggable so I thought I'd post the digital version of the screenprints I did for last year's Inkygoodness show. They've got another show coming up this September which should be a good 'un. I was too busy to participate this time... but maybe next year, if they'll have me.

As well as all the recent work for children's books and me and Joe's animation projects I've also only gone and got meself in some fancy exzeebitions. It's really nice to have the chance to do some personal work where I can draw monsters with cocks for noses without anyone telling me off. First one is this painting on a skateboardy-thing for the upcoming Decked Project in Londontown. Its on from 25th-30th august at the Stolenspace Gallery in Shoreditch and has boards by some of the best young illustrators and designers around. And fat old me. The lovingly thrashed deck was kindly donated by Marcus Roots Nutting esq.
And in November I'm having my first international show in Tokyo... more details and cock noses to come.

Here are some bits of pictures from the Who Wears Glasses book (by Ana Galan) that I've been illustrating. Its a children's book that aims to make all the speccy four-eyes out there feel better about wearing glasses. I hope they enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed drawing it.

Joe recently got asked to submit a pitch for what may have been our dream job... as usual, we got very, VERY excited. The deadline was really tight, but we came up with a couple of pictures to show what our final film might look like, then sat back waited for the phonecall to tell us how brilliant we were and that we had got the job. I spent all week trying to decide what I was going to spend the money on when we got an email saying they liked what we had done, but someone else had done something better... Neeeeee-ooowwwwwnnnn! CRASH!!!
Now I'm all grumpy and eating too many biscuits.
