busy times!!

Life has been very hectic with illustration projects and the forth coming arrival of Lil Chip in March the pass few months has been a blur for the lovely Louise(aka Misses Millerchip)and I.

As well as nursery duties I have recently sent some art work to “Laser Artzine” (Belgium) and for the next” GoodvsEvil zine,” which I should hopefully here back from in the next few weeks. Both of theses zine’s are jam packed with amazing illustration from a fine list of contributors, check out the web sites via my link section.
GoodvsEvils next issue will have a free shin tanaka spikey baby toy.

Ive also sent a late contribution to The Cardboardshelter.org Project.
Even though I don’t know if my work has been selected for the project I think its a great cause and a Genius project.

Here’s some information about the project (all the below text is taken from the website http://www.cardboardshelter.org)

Cardboardshelter.org aims to raise both awareness of, and funds for The Big Issue Foundation by bringing together artists from around the UK to contribute towards the first CardboardShelter.org exhibition.


We have invited 30 artists to each produce a piece of work on an A4-sized piece of cardboard. The idea of the cardboard canvas is a nod towards the material which provides shelter to many homeless. The collection will then be displayed in an exhibition and pieces will be available for purchase at £40 each. Therefore, if every item were to be sold, over £1,000 would be raised for The Big Issue!


The exhibition will be at The Art Works Gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne, on Thursday 27 November 2008 from 6pm to 10pm, in the run up to Christmas: one of the most difficult times of the year for homeless people.


History

The original idea of a cardboard canvas to raise funds for homeless charities was thought up by Steve Tenebrini, Jeremy Boyd and Mike Maher when they created a show called "This Side Up". The idea was then adapted by Greg Eastmer at Gimme Shelter making it exclusive to street artists.




If you can get to the exhibition, go and spend some of your hard earned cash on some amazing art!!!


I also picked up my nocturnal prints today and they look spiffing, photos up soon.

SWEET NEWS!!!



I have some work and a short interview in the very sweet NEW SUGAR pdf zine.
its full of delightful illustration from around the globe all bassed on the word "YES".
