新年快樂 Happy New Year 2014!


 2014 has been already going for a month, but it's only just new year's day in China! (as they follow a Lunar calendar). It's the year of the horse this year which means (in a nutshell) that it will be full of prosperity, good health and good luck!  

新年快樂 Happy New Year!

Happy Burns Night!

It's Burns Night tomorrow night and in celebrating all things Robert Burns, here's a few little illustrations of him and his works. It's great there's a whole night devoted to the Scottish poet, not heard of him? he wrote a little poem tons of us sing on New Year's Day-- Auld Lang Syne! Check out Eddie Reader's 'The Songs of Robert Burns' album for a great introduction and this beauty 'I'll meet thee on the lea-rig' sung by Roddy Woomble.
I've just put these up on my Society6 Shop so you can get them as prints, t-shirts, clocks, tote bags, laptop/phone cases and mugs!
Have a great Burns Night, I won't be having haggis, but some neeps n tatties will go down a treat. Hope you recite lots of his works and don't forget to pipe in the Haggis!

Sundance Film Festival 2014


The Sundance Film Festival starts today and I'd love to go, so while I can't quite get to Sundance this year, here's a little poster I created with all the films on it! There looks to be so many amazing stories being told. If I could get to Utah I'd go see: 

and these Short Films:-

What would you see?

See America

I did a little poster for Creative Action Network's next project, taking inspiration and reimaging the iconic 'See America' posters from 75 years ago. Mine (above) is of the Inferno Cone in the 'Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve' in Idaho. Who knew you could go to the craters of the moon while never leaving earth? Check out the other Idaho posters here and all of the states here. Below are a few of my favourites, but why not contribute your own?

Also check out my book covers for Creative Action Network's previous project 'Recovering the Classics'.
