Blue Suede Shoes in Central London!

I have another show coming up, this time with my illustration collective, 'Gumbo'. Our 'Blue Suede shoes' exhibition will be on again in October. This time we have an amazing location in central London - the Nancy Victor gallery at 6 Charlotte place, Fitzrovia. The show opens on 6th October and runs until 21st October. Open Monday - Saturday 10am - 6pm. Hope you can make it along!

Image for Google

I created this recent image to go in a booklet for Google. The booklet was based on the fact that the Google display network offers 4x the click-through rate compared to the industry standard, and contains other '4x' facts illustrated by different artists. My fact was 'Women on average say 4 times more words a day than men'. I have chosen to go for a typographic solution with many words illustrated that mean 'to talk'! I was restricted to using all four google colours, plus black and white.

The Silver spoon goes Dutch....

....and Russian and Danish! I spent endless hours in the earlier part of this year rewriting all the lettering for three more foreign language editions of The Silver spoon for children - (it's already in Spanish, French and Japanese). This is a much bigger job than it sounds, as every single title, plus incidental bit of text including ingredient packets etc have to be translated, lettered, coloured and placed. The Russian was definitely the biggest challenge!

Festivaletteratura is on in Mantua in Italy this week - home of my publisher Corraini Edizioni. I am not there this year but here is some lettering I did for the festival newspaper. It's called 'Colibri' which means humming bird in Italian.
