I’m pleased to announce I’m showing some new work at Black Bear Cafe in Belfast over the Christmas break. The series is based on a nineteenth century instructional book on how to do some serious hand shadows. The work’s only up and available for one night so drop in, have a look, drink some wine and we’ll take it from there.
If you’re going to be in Belfast this Christmas you need to get your sweet self down to see this lot. Neil gave us a sneak peek the other day and they are all AMAZING. Go Neil go.
My new Albam Christmas illustrations are now up in their lovely, lovely shops. Woop woop.

IT’S CHRISSSSSSSSSTMAS! Come sing along to your favourite festive beats and fill up on mince pies and mulled wine. It’s going to be a guaranteed right good time.
I just saw some pictures of my artwork made into enamel badges for the NYC Tweed Run. Fun fun funnnnn.
There are some new little illustrations for Christmas at Albam up over on their site right about now.
Haha, the Albam man made it on to the Time Out blog. Woop.
Here’s some fresh new stuff that I’ve been collaborating with menswear dream brand Albam Clothing on. This is from a series explaining why Albam jeans are so great; describing the process of sourcing the Japanese denim, having them crafted into wonder-trousers here in England, through to the very happy owner getting to wear them, hence this little illustration of a nice Albam clad man on his hot wheels. You can see the whole lot of them on the walls of the new Monmouth Street shop. I haven’t seen them yet so I hope they look nice.
If you don’t know Albam, go check them out. I wish I was a man.
Nice little mention from Tim Ridley (Coffeesmiths dream cafe creator). You should totally read his blog. It’s really rather interesting.
ARGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Our Bobbin X Globe store made it to number 54 in Time Out’s 100 best shops in London!!!! GO TEAM!! I’m so happy. Read the full list over here. Boom boom Bobbin boom.

Here we have a poster I made for the KXC Charity Gig Night at O2 Carling Academy Islington, raising monies for the nice folk at London City Mission’s Webber Street. You should all come. And bring everyone you know. It’s going to be a right good time, and it’s for a really great cause. Featuring the very finest of performances from hit-master Daniel ‘Skippo’ Peterson, the legendary founders of ‘instrumental sex wave’ -Grand Forever, John ‘Elliot from the West’ Kyle and MORO. Get your tickets over here y’allll.
So I stumbled into a National Trust shop in Bath at the weekend, and they happened to have a display of the bath and shower range I illustrated for them way back, that I hadn’t seen yet. I bought some of these fancy smelling ‘Drawer Sachet’ thingys for my Mum (Hi Mum). They made my bag smell really nice. Some of this range is now up on the National Trust website to buy.
ZOË BARKER’S DRAWERS. Yeah you see what I did there. Couldn’t not really. Too good to let that one pass by.
