Paper Balloon cards

This is a new range of cards just launched. Running with the popularity of the Japanese paper balloons , each card comes with a balloon inside that corresponds with the character on the front of the card, a nice little surprise for the lucky recipient.For this range I wanted to create  a slightly rough print feel to the overall graphics so had fun with a bit of lino printing and rubber stamping!

Cockpit open studios this weekend

I had a studio at Cockpit studios for 10 very happy years and have been invited back to be part of their 25 year anniversary by exhibiting in the Alummini  space . A bit of background info; Cockpit studios is tucked away in a yard in Holborn , designer /makers work alongside each other in shared studio spaces, It is a hot house of great talent and the great thing about the open studios is that allows you to come and see behind the scenes and browse around each makers pop up shop in their own work space…..A breath of fresh  air and a million miles away from the homogeneous high streets of our current times! I hope you can make it! FREE ENTRY
