I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in the Arts Trail for the fabulous Isle of Arts , coming to our very own Ventnor this weekend!
The Arts Trail provides festival goers with the opportunity to discover a spectacular collection of paintings, sculptures and other Art installations. Mostly created by Island artists, they are displayed in a number of venues around the town and seafront and well worth a stroll through the town during your visit to the festival! Many are for sale, and some of the artists are happy to take commissions too!
Here’s the my hand-drawn map created to guide you through the town to each venue!
After ‘Wedstival’ was sent to print, I then began working on a hand-drawn baby postcard to be sent by the proud parents on the arrival of little Kees! I was asked to incorporate elements of Holland and Bristol to create a keepsake and a more traditional way of introducing him to the family.. a wonderful commission to be part of!

Introducing my latest collaboration with Island Eco-fashion brand Rapanui.. ‘Your Badgers Need You!
I have designed a limited edition organic t-shirt to celebrate the work of the Badger Trust. They make up a key part of Team Badger, a coalition of groups who’ve been in the news recently for campaigning against the planned cull of Badgers in 2012, now postponed until 2013. All the money from the sales will go towards fundraising for the badger trust and to show our support and promote the #stopthecull petition, launched by Brian May.
Head over to Rapanui to buy the tshirt
and help us to raise money for the save the badger campaign.

Introducing Mr. Skirrel!
I’ve been wanting to draw a little tribute to our native red squirrels that thrive on the Isle of Wight. They are a constant source of amusement in my family since a rather unfortunate incident that I had with one of the critters when i was 2. The squirrel in question, leapt into my arms and stole my ‘biddit’ (the Mcvities variety), to my distress. I would imagine that to anyone reading this, it is probably one of those, ‘you had to be there’ kind of stories but nevertheless these opportunists are constantly referred to and anything squirrel related is collected to make us smile. So here he is, my addition to the collection.
