Felt Tip Stories


I am soon starting my MA in Children's Book Illustration and couldn't be more excited about it! 

I am also expanding my business in running children's workshops and calling it "Felt Tip Stories", thus putting the emphasis on teaching and facilitating drawing and comic-making activities. I hope this felt tip elephant will find its feet!

The next "Felt Tip Stories" workshop I am running will be "Magical Beast Masks" at the East Street summer fair, which I have not been to before. It looks nice though and I am happy to be helping out! Come along and  make a mask using different drawing marks and felt tips and think of a name and home for your imaginary beast! Free and all ages welcome.Sat 19th Sept. 11am-1pm. I think there'll be some nice food and vintage clothes at this community market. So that'll be jolly!

making huuuuge sculptures

Thanks to the Children's Scrapstore in Bristol for the amazing materials. These images are of another workshop I devised, resourced, led and facilitated at Arnolfini. The children were inspired by large scale images of sculptures and installations by Angus Fairhurst and Cosima Von Bonin from Arnolfini's archive.

Green Melodica

I helped to record some music by Matt Jones with himself, Sam, Lisa and Michal one sunny day recently in Ashton Court. Mostly I drew them but I also played the melodica for a bit! 


Michal wandering, as instructed.
