Some Recent Exposure 'n Stuff.

I'm stoked to say that my art can be seen in a few places round the interweb right now. Check 'em out:

HERE is an article from the Amelia's Magazine website about funky Valentine's Day gift ideas, in which my prints are featured.

And HERE is another article, also from the Amelia's Magazine site about things to do on Valentine's Day in which another of my prints is displayed. This article is happily the front page of the website right now! Many, many thanks to Amelia's Magazine for all of that.

HERE is a lovely article from the Grazia Daily website, written by Hannah Bullivant about crafty Valentine's Day gift ideas, in which my art features, as well. Hoorah!

And as ever, prints of all this art and more are available in my website art-shop:!shop

Happy Valentine's Day, you romantic beasts. Hope it's a good one.

Valentines Day 2012 Illustration Series

I'm not a huge fan of Valentines Day. It's not that I'm not some sort of dour singleton-- I don't hate the holiday or anything. Rather, I'd say that my attitude regardless of being single or taken is best summed up as being 'generally apathetic to its existence.' That said, I'm always happy when there is a reason to make art, be it holiday-that-I-don't-observe-based or otherwise. I mean, really, how many of us who make Christmassy art actually believe Jesus arose and walked on water? So without further ado (except to say that if you are interested in prints or cards of this art, GO TO MY SHOP HERE) here is what I made in honour of this week's upcoming Hallmark Holiday:

Dog-Heavy Illustration for AU Magazine

Oh, look! The wonderful AU Magazine, just put out their 80th issue! Hurrah for them!

My personal favourite part of this issue is, of course, the page with a sneaky walrus on it.  But there are also some fantastic articles (check out the cover story by John Freeman) AND I  have a new illustration inside, accompanying Steven Rainey's article about what Scottish independence could mean for Northern Ireland.

I've represented the involved countries through dogs (English bulldog, Scottish terrier, and Irish wolfhound), as well as through outright stereotypes. Here's to hoping no one is too offended by them. (I mean, everyone in England IS a Morris Dancer, riiight??) 
...Actually, on second thought, I hope it offends as many people as possible. CHEERS!
