Kate Spade, fashion, accessories and stationery company based in New York commissioned me before Christmas last year to produce illustrations for their 2011 wall calendar and desk diary. A very lovely job. And finally it has arrived on their website, although I'm not sure they ship to the UK. For a better look at the images have a look here.

Here's my new seasonal image in the series for the V&A Autumn programme of Friday Lates, created with photographer John Short. The image illustrates 3 themed events held in around the museum celebrating famous design duos, camera-less photography and open source design.

Myself and Pete found ourselves in deepest, darkest Waterloo today bringing the work of Elliot Thoburn to life for the first time. We are collaborating with our good friends at Wyld Stallyons on a series of short films. More info soon.
I created the illustrations for this passport designed by Sara Carneholm and including a cover texture by Gavin Turk. They were commissioned for The House of Fairy Tales established by Deborah Curtis and Gavin Turk which is a child-centred artist led project operating across a number of formats from workshops, publishing, advocacy and education packs, with the aim of making education inclusive, inventive and fun.. The passports were used at workshops and events around the country in which kids and adults could collect stamps and medals as reward for completing tasks.
