There is nothing quite like hand drawn type, charcoal makes everything a little messy – I like it! Unfortunately I can’t reveal a lot about this project, but I will be posting up more information when all is completed.

The first peak of my career hit before commercial experience, still to this day I can’t believe what can be achieved through passion, graft, many mistakes and hard work. The exhibition has since become a permanent feature in The New York Times building, feel truly blessed to of been a part of “The lettering of On Language in the New York Times Magazine.”

The first signs of summer – people heading to the beach in shorts and dogs sunbathing… This summers going to be a busy one, and the last one with just John and I; we have a little one on the way either late August or early September, we are thrilled – it’s so exciting! Over these next few months we are getting things in place ready for our son or daughters arrival. I’ll still be taking on projects up the the knuckle and hopefully weaving in projects after too.

Chin chin!

Since our visit to Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery in Glasgow, I’d love to study more sculptures (this time with my SLR). These images were processed on an iPhone using Visual Supply Co. The sculptures themselves are so emotive, the museums downlighting really does them justice through the lens, although not so much by eye.

I’ve had the pleasure of helping Elaine Auld develop her brand for Tuppence over the past few months. Tuppence is a new project bringing together old bric-a-brac to create original quirky homeware and gifts. Here is a little iPhone snap of her business card. The full project will be uploaded once the website design is complete!

I’ve been blogging since August 2007. I love WordPress but I just want to make things simpler. I’ve read a lot about Squarespace and I really want to make the change… but I will lose all my blog online presence since 2007. The major decision for the move is having access to an e-commerce plug in with no hassle (obviously cost implications!). But having this structure will allow much more ease in creating a portfolio site, blogging and shopping.

So the question is… should i take the plunge? I’ve got until June to decide as this is when my hosting runs out. Are there any readers who use Squarespace already or maybe using something else? Any advice would be great.

Update

After much consideration and advice from other creatives I’ve decided to stay with WordPress!

A fortnight of gluttonous boxes spilling, bloated bin liners, no ‘dial up’ and phones panic searching; we’ve moved from the serene harbour side town of Whitehaven to the rural edge in Sandwith.

We managed to weave our way through cloth mountains and cardboard roads venturing out to enjoying some late evening sun.

Back online soon…
