The Autumn and Winter of 2015 was as busy as ever with trips abroad and exhibitions keeping me occupied. I was commissioned to create/draw the bunting for Twickenham town Centre by BID Twickenham during the Rugby World Cup 2015. I was very proud to help my home town in such a way and it inspired a whole series of commissions for rugby fans throughout the world.
2016 is proving to be an exciting year with several album covers already under my belt and many more to come. These include NYC alto saxophonist Patrick Cornelius who will be releasing his new album When We Were Very Young in the UK during February 2016. New label Two Rivers Records have been increasingly present on my drawing table with imminent releases from Clemens Christian Poetzsch (PEOPLE & PLACES), Robert Menzel (Alchemy), Dave Kane (Mysore mornings), Kenneth Dahl Knudsen and Michael Chillingworth. On the independent tip I have already completed US singer Diane Taber’s latest album artwork and Firefay’s The King Must Die which will be launched in London on the 12th February 2016.
Here’s something for you to get involved in. I’ll be organising the Art of Caring again this year. Last year’s exhibition was a massive success with 252 artworks by 130 artists exhibited at the Rose Theatre in Kingston-upon-Thames. Well were at it again. Submit up to 3 images to firstname.lastname@example.org on the theme of Caring or Care and we’ll exhibit them in the exhibition, which starts on International Nurses Day (12th May).

Deadline 31st March 2016.
