  7. In a weeks time my solo show at Ó! Galeria in Porto, Portugal will go up! The show will feature a selection of my work from over the last 6 years, from books, to screen prints, to originals. The name of the exhibition is ‘We see stories’, most of my work is rooted in visual storytelling, some of it is more obvious than others so i’m inviting all visitors to come and see or create there own stories from my images. Im sad to not be able to be there for the show, but i’m very much looking forward to the photos of it all up!

  8. POSTING DAY! Today I’m posting all my work to Portugal for my solo exhibition ‘We see stories’ at Ó! Galeria in Porto, which starts in a weeks time. 

    Im very excited to be exhibiting in this wonderful gallery, which is so tirlessly dedicated to illustration and book arts from all round the globe. After visiting the Portugese section at the bologna children’s book fair this year it opened my eyes to how so much amazing work is coming out of there, namely my favourite Portugese publishers ‘Planteta Tangerina’ check out their spectacular books here —-
