The Hardy Tree

This year after a long break I started making music again - though I'm not a musician by any stretch of the imagination. Sounds are gathered from various places, chopped up looped and rearranged on my computer, tunes picked out with one figure on a tiny keyboard.

I've started a little CD label called Clay Pipe Music, firstly to put out my CD and next year to put out music by other people. I see it being somewhere between a record label and an artist book publisher - everything hand made/printed and designed by me as best I can.

The CD is called The Fields Lie Sleeping Underneath by The Hardy Tree.

You can buy it here: www.claypipemusic.co.uk

Pop Ups

Just recently published by Walker in the UK, and Candlewick in the USA is 'Pop-Up -Everything you Need to Create Your Own Pop-Up Book', that I illustrated. It basically gives you all you need to make four pop-ups and learn the art of paper engineering as you do it. The book is large with lots of fold outs, so it was difficult to photograph. You can buy both the US and UK versions on Amazon

Images from an idea for a children's picture book that I will probably take in a different direction now, but I thought it would be worth posting them here.

Gobal Contexts

Sorry about the poor scans, my work has recently been featured in book called 'Global Contexts' by Mark Wigan, I've been following Marks work since the 80s when I remember his paintings on the walls of Kensington Market, and the Scala Cinema, so I was really happy to have my work in this book along with some other really great illustrators. It is published by AVA and should be in book shops now.
