The Grand Prize

Here is a painting I recently did for Edition Peix in Berlin. Really enjoyed a bit of hands-on painting after months behind a computer screen! The theme I had to work on was "Der Grosse Preis", which I think means "the Grand Prize", and will be printed on a promotional 2012 (2012! German efficiency!) calendar alongside great illustrators such as Atak, Olaf Hajek, Martin Haake and Martin Jarrie.

Buzzards and Dreadful Crows


Here is a tea towel I designed a while back for a lovely Finnish company called Kauniste. Even though "birds" isn't the most original theme, I do like drawing them, at least when I can make them a bit odd looking. Inspired by Indian folk art, North American Indian art and Inuit art, I hope it's not too twee! I've even thrown a couple of communist agitators in there! Anyway, the design is called "Song Birds" or more exotically; "Laululinnut" in Finnish.


The Wolf's Whistle


Hello there! Sorry it's been so long. I've been really busy the last few months working on a new picture book called "The Wolf's Whistle". It's the story of what happened before the well known fairy tale of the Three Little Pigs. Turns out there's more to the story than previously thought, and that the wolf might not be such a bad guy after all! The book will be published by the Nobrow Press in mid November. It'll be printed in three spot colours; Red, Blue and Yellow, and hopefully the result will look a little something like this:
