I want to paint my house walls like these people in Hazaribagh village in India! Elephants! Giant lizards! Flowers, even in the store room! Big thanks to photographer Deidi von Schaeven for the photos. If you’re in London, head to the Brunei Gallery at Soas to see the expo, and tell me what it was like.
UN Women have a great cartoon competition open: the theme is “Gender equality: Picture it!”. It’s open to European cartoonists aged 18-28. Deadline 20th April 2015 – get drawing.
My next commission involves signs for a sports festival: drawings that have to be blown up to 1×1 meters. This means processing them in Inkscape, an open source vector graphics programme, where my images can be scaled up without losing resolution. I’ve been using Gimp before but it’s good to keep learning!
I’ve had the honour to be asked to illustrate the invitation and menu for a friend’s wedding… featuring the bride & groom’s ‘spirit animals’ and the wedding venue. What a pleasure. Here are some of the pictures!
