As our little seaside community gets battered by Autumnal storms a merry band of crafters met together on a Sunday afternoon to collage animals. The workshop was run by the uber talented Lorna Apps-Woodland (ace name!) and was held at craft cafe Make.
We arrived to find an A4 envelope with our names on and inside everything we needed to get started including templates of a hare, fox, owl, bird and cat drawn by Lorna. The large table behind us was covered in all kinds of paper ephemera, vintage magazines, books and washi tape. For nearly 2 and a half hours I was in absolute heaven, cups of hot tea were supplied as well as yummy cake and relaxing music. If you have never been to a workshop before I thoroughly recommend it. Although I am an artist and make toys /illustrate most of the week you can never learn too much especially from other artists. Be inspired and make time to make.
I made two dachshund collages inspired by my beautiful dog Margot and can’t wait to make more at home
Sorry for not posting for a while i have beed laid up by rogue food poisoning and having a chilled weekend fishing for crabs with the kids. Today I have decided to post up some recent work of mine, enjoy.
Some new work…
Cant stop listening to this band and dancing around in my heels.
this look rocks my world

literally anything by Andrew Groves makes my day
I do so dearly hope we can stock his work in the gallery, or I would totally love to work with him!
Im currently working on a series of prints about a fox going on a grand tour of Europe with his man servant Caruthers who is a polite otter.
Im feeling very pensive at the moment, spending any great deal of time at home always makes me super restless. I guess I will churn out loads of drawings whilst listening to Elliot Smith.
I drew these two yesterday, it made me feel happy for a short while.
I made this little guy. His new owner Elliot says…
…named him Albin
hes the quietly wealthy type, enjoys jazz, chuck jones, pastis, trips to the south of france and has an irrational fear of handles falling off of hot drinks
He’s a soft 3D version of this guy who features a lot in my drawings.
Im glad he has found a lovely home and has a great name!
Cheers Elliot x
Its dark in the house today so I did some rubbish phonography of the things I like about my palace.
