…I was approached by TLC Holdings in the summer to produce a new piece of work for their re-design of the Association of Illustrators website. As a longstanding member of the AOI (25 years and counting – ouch that makes me feel old!) I was delighted and flattered to be asked to contribute. There are 6 images rotating on the homepage from some brilliant contempraries – Sam Chivers, Isobel Barber, Kirsten Sims, Julian Glander and last but but no means least, the great Oliver Jeffers, some great company to be amongst.
You can see more here.
…I finally managed to get to London to visit the two exhibitions containing my work. The Prize for Illustration at London Transport Museum in Covent Garden (show runs until September 3rd) and The World Illustration Awards at Somerset House (show runs until August 28th).

…New cover and internal for Bulletin Magazine.
We all expect in 2017 for physically disabled persons to be able to easily access public buildings and people who are blind, partially sighted or have hearing problems should also be well accounted for, but people who have speech and communication problems aren’t offered an equal amount of thought and care. At present there isn’t an Internationally recognised ‘communication access’ symbol, so over the past year the RCSLT have been working with the ‘Stroke Association’, ‘Communication Matters’ and others to consider and develop a possible symbol for communication access.
