This summer has been a busy for me as for several weeks I have been away working at various festivals around the UK doing bits and pieces of creative/rigging work. It's been an amazing time and such a fun experience, this years memories, work and people that I've met won't ever leave me. I took some photos along the way documenting the things I did either alone or with different teams. However the main team I was working with were a lovely couple who run A&E Adventures, who are well worth reaching out to if ever in need of visual magic!

The first of the summer was Secret Garden Party in Huntingdon:


Next up was the maddest city in the world of Boomtown Fair:

The final festival in my season was the very laid back One Love Festival:

'Rolling In'

  Earlier this year I entered the Folio Societys competition to illustrate 'Brave New World' by Aldous Huxley, of which my entries can be found on the Books section of my website. However out of all the sketches and images I produced for this my favourite by far was the image relating to the main characters hide away of an abandoned lighthouse. The original of this pieces has now been framed and sold to a good friend, however there will be prints available if I'm asked very nicely . . .

Here are some detail shots of 'Rolling In' and the original can be viewed in the Shop section of my website:

Binid Crew

Another snippet of the summer was putting together a quick sign for my close friends of the 'Bindi Crew' who some of you might have seen at a few festivals this summer spreading happiness and calming vibes through hair braiding and bubbles!

As I have finally gotten around to updating the blog since the summer there may be a little backlog . . . 

So to begin!

With the arrival of life sized gorillas popping up all over South Devon as a result of the Great Gorilla Project that I was involved with earlier this year, there are now many miniature additions added to the attraction. Each Gorilla has had a miniature version made and painted either by the artist or workers at the village and are now part of the tour at Babbacombe Model Village. So keep tiny eyes peeled for the mini monsters!

Here's a few snaps of mine currently on show
