New Year New Brushes!

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….
