No Short Circuit

Earlier this year I did some design work for Sue Austin and Nick Lee, two intrepid and eco-conscious travellers who plan to drive around the world in an electric car.

Their ambitious project goes by the name of Global Circuit, and they were among the first people this year to buy the brand new Nissan Leaf to carry it out in.

Their blog about their trial run in Europe earlier this year makes for very interesting reading, particularly in regards to struggles to find charging points before the car ran out of electricity, the kindness of strangers in helping with this, the non-standard technology and schemes for charging a car in different countries, and in the questions they posed to those at Nissan HQ in Paris, their ultimate destination, about the practicalities of running such a car.

Good luck to them, and I look forward to hearing more about their travels!

I Got 99 Problems

This image often pops into my head when I hear Jay-Z's '99 Problems', so I had to get it down on paper.

The Fresh Prints

Hot off the printing presses I have 5 copies each of my prints 'A Little Horse' and 'London Plane on Hampstead Heath'.

Being as it is somewhere between Halloween and Valentine's Day, might I suggest that these would make an ideal Christmas (*ducks for cover at the mere mention of this occasion with more than a month to go*) present for your loved ones?

Both are individually numbered giclée prints on Hahnemühle FineArt Photo Rag paper (translation: incredibly high quality prints on the finest paper there is), and of an edition of 50.

Prices for each are as follows:

£120 unframed or £220 framed + £10 P&P (or hand delivery by the artist, if you live in London and ask me soon enough before Christmas) per item. You can avoid the £10 fee if you're able to collect your order from Stoke Newington in north London.

To place an order, or to ask further questions, please email

3D design - The Fantasy Ball: A Masquerade Affair

I was commissioned by events audio/visual specialists BMEAV to create and animate a 3D version of the CLIC Sargent event The Fantasy Ball: A Masquerade Affair, which took place on Wednesday. Let's hope that huge amounts of money were raised for the charity.

Hair This

I recently photographed and designed a website and for Jane Edwards, a rather excellent hairdresser in Stoke Newington. If the top of your head is looking shabby, and you're in the N16 neighbourhood, I highly recommend a visit. She's right next door to brand new cafe, Fred & Fran which is also very good.
