Quay Arts Cafe Menu
Illustrations commissioned by the Quay Arts for their vegan taster menu evening on November 6th 2018. The menu has been devised by brilliant head chef Dave Holley with each dish representing a month in the year. From the fresh, cool shades of green for spring and summer to the warm, spiced colours of autumn and winter. I hope the menu shows how delicious this vegan menu is and tickets for this one off event are available through the Quay Arts box office ph: 01983 822490 or book online here.

Sounds of the City
My entry to the Prize for Illustration competition organised in partnership with The Association of Illustrators and the London Transport Museum. The theme was sounds of the city.
Written by Isle of Wight author James Owen Sowerby, ‘The Whistle’ begins in 1914 and is the first of a trilogy revolving around one farming family and many other characters in England and France through the period from 1914-1920.
The Whistle covers a breadth of issues and ideas from young love to the ludicrous class system in the war and the political ambitions driving military action, the struggles with faith, the different forms of courage, and of course the challenges facing thousands of women who did not want to sit idly by and do nothing. The book provides a commentary on the breakdown of social order during the war and portrays the tragic gallantry of a lost generation and the timeless legacy of war; love and despair, bravery and comradeship in the face of our deepest fears.
I’m very proud to have illustrated the cover and I look forward to working with Sowerby on future editions.
The book is available to order from most bookshops and you can also purchase it from Amazon. There will also be a book launch for The Whistle at 6pm on Friday 14th December at Dimbola Museum and Galleries on the Isle of Wight. This will be an opportunity to meet the author and myself, hear more about the book and buy a signed copy. To RSVP to this free event please email email@example.com.
