The last couple of years have seen me getting down and busy with Eye Heart Spleen, and makin’ movies! However I have always been a doodler at heart. Nothin’ more relaxing than putting pen/brush/nib to paper! This year I’ve started by taking small but bold steps towards reconnecting with the doodler in me.
Luckily the year started out with an illustration commission! It was for Backpax magazine. Backpax is a map available in youth hostels for travellers in the UK to get a glimpse of back-packing hotspots around the UK. They wanted a map of Edinburgh and a map of London. Both needed to feature quirky and ‘doodley’ icons of must-see-places in the city.
Here are some snapshots of the artwork I created….
A successful exhibition at Frenchay’s Fromeshaw gallery back in October 2013 led Eye Heart Spleen to become part of the permanent collection at Bristol’s largest hospital. The staff and patients alike were very taken with the work, so the hospital’s … Continue reading →

I feel compelled to express some thanks to the internet community for raising Eye heart Spleen to dizzying heights. By the wonderful whim of the internet I found the images going viral and popping up in every other design blog around the world. I had interest expressed from press agencies in China, Italy and the UK, culminating in two articles being published on major online platforms- the Huffington Post and ABC news.com. I made a few exciting sales on Etsy and had an outpouring of fans from around the world. So to you, I say thanks- for deeming these images valuable enough to share, and for giving a little artist like me, the hope and confidence to continue sharing my work.
Another big ‘Finally!’ The one-stop place for all your Eye Heart Spleen prints! I’ve always beena supporter of Etsy, giving a worlwide creative community an outlet that encourages original crafts and artwork. So it was a no-brianer to send Eye Heart Spleen prints their way!
You can now easily and simply browse for prints and order from Etsy. You can easily pay online. Contact me for international shipping quotes. They are being sent to all corners of the Globe, from Guatemala, to Australia and even China! Happy days for travelling organs!
Finally after much deliberation and expectation (at least on my part!) I decided it was really time to give these prints a dedicated home on the net. The designer has done a lovely job and I look forward to sharing it with you all and hearing your thoughts!
After attending the Back2Health conference, I had countless women ask after an image of ‘breasts’. I realised it was a much needed addition still missing from the collection. The demand was both heartening and overwhelming.
So under the beautiful April skies I began the foraging. From Glastonbury to the Clifton Downs, the foraging expedition to find the prefect breasts was no small task. However, after several frustrated attempts at arranging soil and small blossoms to into breast shapes, in the place of delicate feminine contours what I had staring back resembled miniature volcanoes made of dirt. Not quite what I was aiming for! So in attempt to try harder, off I went in search of wider meadows, scouring the Clifton Downs for the ideal textures to make up the breast tissue, and finally arrived to Glastonbury town centre, where there lay round little pink flowers perfectly shaped like nipples.
So now, I proudly present the newest addition to the Eye Heart Spleen collection:
