IP1 On the Record

I was given a difficult article to illustrate again this issue, covering three case studies about young offenders and the impact on their future.  No visuals jumped out at me for ages so in the end I decided to think a little more out of the box.  Magpies.  They like stealing (pretty) things.  The classic stripped attire that convicts wear, so Mr Magpie's chest got dressed in stripes.  To top him off I created a fox/shadow type daemon that engulfed him until he shed his troubles and flew into a colourful future!! 
Issue 41 is out and about in Suffolk now, so pick up your copy or download the issue from

Elsie's Den for Frankie Leigh

Frankie Leigh has just released her cushions from the "Elsie's Den" collection on Etsy.  These beautiful hand made cushions feature a woodland animal on the front and ticking fabric on the reverse.  She keeps them unique by never repeating the same colourway.
These cushions will soon also feature in a window display at LoveOne in Ipswich in a few months time.  But until then you can by from Etsy here.

Once the name of "Elsie's Den" came about, Frankie requested my services to make the logo for the collection.  Knowing Frankie well, I decided to use her love for keys as my basis for the design, then linking in the initials to complete the key. x
