We’ve had a lovely evening at the launch of the Cardiff Design Festival, at the Bay’s Senate building. Although we didn’t make the shortlist, there’s a collection of great designs on display, so I’d recommend you go take a look if you can. I’m looking forward to taking part in some of the other festival events over the next few weeks.

I’ve had my Galaxy Tab for a week now, and I’ve only just discovered the ‘Drawing Pad’ app that was preloaded onto it for me. This ‘illustration’ isn’t going to win any awards, but it was a successful little test, and compared to ‘PaintJoy Pro’ (which was also preloaded) the range of tools available in ‘Drawing Pad’ is actually pretty impressive. With pen, pencil, crayon and paint textures, shaped ‘stamps’, ‘stickers’ and patterned papers, I can actually see myself wasting many an hour with this app. I may need to acquire a stylus, though, instead of bumbling through with my [...]

Here’s the finished version of an elephant illustration I’ve been working on. It should be available as a print (and lots of other things!) in my Society6 shop soon.
