So, Far (aaaargh!!!) are back together and touring the UK this week and it's safe to say I am pretty excited.
Jonah sent me over this image of a pony and asked me to screen some bags for the tour. It was all pretty last minute (mostly due to my being overseas last week) and I just got done printing!
They're looking pretty sweet, if you're at any of the shows from Glasgow onwards be sure to pick one up. They're a pretty limited set so be quick!

I had planned to meet up with my mate Anthony in Riga last weekend as it was his Birthday. He's been away for a few months travelling around Russia (http://www.anthony-morrow.blogspot.com/) and is now heading back to the UK through Europe. I somehow managed to make an absolute mess of booking my flights and what was supposed to be a 3 day trip to Riga ended up being week long saga.

After a few days in Riga we went to Estonia and made a fairly wreckless attempt at camping out in Lahemaa National Park. Tallinn is absolutley beautiful, especially in the snow.

One of my illustrations was recently used by Napier Student Newspaper, Veritas. A good friend, Rowan Lear, is art editor with the publication and kindly thought of one of my drawings for the music pages.

It may appear on various clothings in the near future.

football in autumn...

The pitch was sodden and heavy, legs tiring in the mud. The wind made the ball do all kinds of crazy things, carrying it just out of reach. It was cold, wet, tiring, frought, filthy and I loved every second.
One of my favourite childhood memories is of playing football in horrendous conditions, another is of the bewildered looks from my mother when I'd come home shivering and muddied from head to toe....not from me dad though, he understood.

Football, in autumn. There are few things finer.

Fresh Air Poster Bear

I was recently asked to deisgn a poster for Edinburgh Uni radio station Fresh Air by Max and Chris who present The Lowdown.
I'd like to say a big thank you to my friend Mike who volunteered his graphic design skills to this job.
As you can see the show airs on Wednesday evenings at 9pm, please take the time to check it out.

my first pumpkin...

So when I was a kid and we'd go out dressed like all kinds of evil to scare sweets out of the hands of our neighbours I'd take a carved turnip.

I always assumed that pumpkins were for American kids and in the UK the turnip was the domestic lantern veg of choice. This week I fond out kids in the UK have been using Pumpkins for years and it turns out I was just poor! (somethings never change)

I might not be able to do much about the fact I'm poor but I'm an adult now and so help me I can have a pumpkin if I want one.

This is my very first pumpkin, I carved him last night and now we've formed an affectionate bond.
