Romcom for IP1

After a very busy festive period I am back to illustrating for IP1 in the latest issue which is out now. There is some really useful information, tips and insights to careers within the creative industry in this quarter. I was included as a case study in the article "Creative Economy", where all of us seemed to agree the lack of cash is holding us back! After my rant about this there are a few illustrations of mine too.
"Romcom" (above) is my favourite piece of writing in this issue! Josh Russell is a top writer, and when the copy of this got sent over to me I was delighted to be asked to illustrate it! Pure comedy genius, slightly on the cringey side of what he put himself through but makes a great read! In fact, my illustrations supported two of my favourites down at IP1, the second being slick designer Emmanuel Ogundiran. Mr O is a third of our collective Immaginarium, who, fingers crossed, we will be putting on another show in the near future...

Pick up the new IP1 around Ippi for a gander.

Create for Cross

If you are in or about Norwich over the next week be sure to pop down to St Gregory's Church Gallery for a gander at some beautiful artworks.

I am amongst a bunch of artists exhibiting and auctioning off work all in aid of the Red Cross. There are some big names included in the show like the talented Rob Ryan and of course our favourite local man Mister Millerchip!

It is a secret auction so you can bid as little or as much as you want, buy a beautiful piece of art and help out a great cause all in the process...

For more information check out their blog here.

We love Keith Lemon

Last week I got a phone call from the studio where Celebrity Juice is recorded. The woman informed me that my crittercature got to Mr Lemon himself and that he absolutely loved it! Not only this, but he wanted to have it on his show that night!!

Unfortunately they record two hours worth of material and only 33 minutes gets aired, my critter was in the hour and 28 minutes which was cut :(

The silver lining to it all, was not only did I find out that he got it and loved it, but the face book fan page also put a link up to my site with the crittercature!! Over 60 "likes"!! Result.
