A Knight in.

This is just a piece I decided to do for the fun of it. I had the idea in my head and I need to get rid of it so I put it on paper. The text will be changed, I just haven't quite finished the hand-drawn final text yet. 

Competition work

Here are some pieces I submitted for a competition for male patterns. Again I took my inspiration from 50's fabric and wallpaper designs.

Flounce of Flamingos

Here is another collective term, this time a Flounce of Flamingos.
As you can tell I got my inspiration from 1950's wallpaper patters, a small obsession of mine.


Here's a piece I have recently been working on. Its the collective term a Hoot of Owls.

Soldier, Soldier

More Final Major Project Work.
This time for Spike Milligan's poem Soldier, Soldier... a slightly depressing poem about young men going to fight in a war. I want to make the subject more light-hearted and suitable for a young audience so my idea is to make a set of soldier skittles. Here are my first 2, only 4 more to go... ( I still can't decide what to use for eyes)
