Unfinished work

Inspired by the amazing 'Leaping Letters' game I played as a child, I planned to create a whole pack of these cards as an idea to get kids interested in type. Only managed to design 3 but you never know what the future holds...


This happened a while ago but I've just found the photo. I came downstairs one morning and my cat ('Quietly') was trying to communicate with me using a ball of wool. Maybe she's just getting bored with water...

Mark Jessett

Thanks to Mark Jessett for coming all the way to Mansfield to speak about his paintings as part of the Creative Forum. It was fascinating and has made me want to clear out my shed and start painting again. For more info visit

Wild Things trailer

New Where the Wild Things Are trailer – looks like the film company has tried to focus on the uplifting side of a film which, if reports are to be believed, is brilliant but uncompromising on the scares and emotional intensity. Sounds just like the book then... See for yourself here "Raaaargh".


Saw these posters for CBS in the big smoke recently - simple but effective!

Poppy Thurlby - abstract photographer

She knows how to use my phone camera better than me...

Michael C Place

I've just been lucky enough to have spent 90 mins in the company of Michael C Place up in Newcastle. Very inspiring stuff.
