The Freewheelin' Troubadour



Once upon a time there was a beautiful man, who traveled to Monument Valley. Here is his story amongst the most beautiful poems. I was lucky enough to help out on such a project, producing one image for the poem 'O sweet death' and the design for book jacket and construction of the book. Its a fab read, i think you should all have a read. yes?!
Check out thefunpowderplot.com for more intriguing work from The Freewheelin' Troubadour and friends.

A Gift for Two Hearts.


Two friends of mine got married the other day, congratulations lovely's. it was a beautiful wedding, and everyone had to wear some purple. was absolutely beautiful and so was the bride. i wanted to make them a wedding gift rather than give money, so i painted their portraits on slices of wood, half each to make a whole person, the words are from their wedding song just because at heart im just a big softy and i don't always draw death like some would believe.

Self Promotion.

For my self promotion i decided to explore the theme of the sea, a publisher or potential client would receive a package that contains a telescope inside would be an example of my work. and hopefully they would commission me :)

Actual size of poster is over 1.5 meters so please excuse image quality so here are some close ups


A Story About A Rabbit


A Story About A Rabbit, written by Kurt Schwitters illustrated and modeled by moi!
The story behind the title is one of a transformation. A small brown rabbit that transforms through a variety of animals ranging from a rabbit, duck, boat and flea just to name a few. My idea was to create a rabbit that embodies all transformations, to show that although the rabbit changes physically it is still the rabbit. i also illustrated the story to cement the ides for the viewer, and so they could see/read the book and distinguish each individual transformation of model. Each viewer would receive a pack, that contained a poster, story book and a postcard displaying a photo of the rabbit to take away. (photos are the best i could do, the reality is so much better)





A Story About A Rabbit.


Here is the Pack you would receive
The poster inside the package, its basically a drawn image of the rabbit.
Here is the book back and front
