Had you visited the Anti Design Festival last week curated by Neville Brody as part of the London Design Week you may have seen our Monsters 'Peepholes'...If not here a few pictures of the making of the 'Peephole' and other pieces from the festival. We did our version of the Victorian pier side entertainment with an executioner, a girl with a head balloon, a teapot, a flying fish, a mini-bodied clown, an emu and of course a naked man with added 'hole'.
Here's a couple of pics from a four book series for Pearson Education entitled 'Pete's Peculiar Pet Shop' written by Sheila Bird and illustrated by myself. I finished these earlier in the year and they are now hitting the shops. The series is about the vertically challenged Pete, his assistant Molly and the highs and lows of running a pet shop full of 'peculiar' pets in a town of Witches, Wizards, Royalty and Flea ridden dogs.
