Return of the blue donkey...

Hello people

Yes, I can finally reveal 'what happened next' to the blue donkey (think 'red donkey' for those of you who managed to get one of the hand-pressed originals)! My donkeys don't really live in a traditional world, but in a mysterious other-world, where there is an occasional helping-hand. It so happens that donkeys are continually regretting adventures, and being assisted.

Does that make any sense? Anyway, the print is now on show as part of the 'No Words Required' exhibition at A Month Of Sundays gallery in Sheffield, alongside work by Sir Paul Smith, Designers Republic, Kid Acne, Jo Peel, Florence Blanchard, Jonathan Wilkinson and many more. It runs throughout August 2015.

For those not able to get to the exhibition, it is also available from my Folksy shop. There are only 25 copies in total:

'Blue Donkey Liberation' A3 2-colour screen-print

Here are some photos I took of the rest of the exhibition:

Also now available is 'The Folk Forest No.5' poster-print. The print was made to commemorate the festival of the same name, and I have created a limited (100 copies) A3 poster-print. It is now in my Folksy shop at:

I'm taking part in this event this weekend:

The Big Village Fete
Weston Park Museum/Weston Park, Sheffield, Sat 15th August, 10.30am-4.30pm

This is a fundraiser to help revamp the Museum. There will be craft stalls, all sorts of games and family activities, fancy dress and a treasure hunt!


I have an 'Intro To Linocut' workshop available to book on Saturday 10th October 2015.

On the workshop you'll learn how to create your very own one-colour linocut print. No experience is necessary, and all materials are included, as well as tea, coffee and biscuits. The workshop will take place at Sheffield Print Club, which is at 15 Lenton Street, S2 4BH.

There are 8 places available, and they cost £35 each.
