Look what I did yesterday... a little bit of interior styling for a photoshoot!
I've been meaning to do this for ages, but was kicked up the bum a bit by the utterly wonderful HOWKAPOW (who are selling a selection of my prints) to get some lifestyle shoots of my prints for their website but also for them to use for PR.
So I booked my lovely and very talented pal James Barke to come over and take some photos. I have to say I loved being art director and just knowing that he would take great shots - which I'm sure you will agree he has... if you scroll to the end of the pictures - you will see a photographers secret in action!!!!...

A year or so ago - I did some work for the University of Bristol. I helped create an activity book which was a questionnaire for young people asking them about their experience of kinship care (being looked after by a member of their family, but not their mum or dad).
Last month I finished designing and illustrating the report. Its a big piece of government research and it is fascinating.
I just got it back from the printers... its a big-fat-delicious-smelling-silky-book (I have a bit of a thing for new print!!) It was a great project to work on & I am really pleased with how it looks. I just hope that when they present the findings to government next week it has an impact and systems are put into to place to look after this over-looked portion of children and their carers.

I can either post it to you, so you can fill in the card and all that, or if you'd like me to be be the cupid pigeon, then email/ Facebook your message, the address of who it is to and I'll do the rest!
You must get orders to be next tuesday 12th, for me to get it in the post in time.
