Screenprint - Ale - Great British Food & Drink Series

"Ale - Let's blow some froth!"

The third print in my "Great British Food & Drink" series of 1950s advertising style illustrations celebrates good old beer drinking.

The aim of this ongoing series is to mimic or pastiche the style of advertising images from the middle of the last century, while promoting fairly mundane but "classic" British food. So far I have illustrated Curry, Tea and Beer, and other prints I have in mind include Pie, Crisps, Kebabs, Trifle and the like.

Showcase 100 Exhibition

The Showcase 100 exhibition is is a juried exhibition and publication of 100 illustrations from some of the best professional illustrators working in the industry today, and I'm EXTREMELY pleased (and not a little surprised) that one of my illustrations has been selected for the show. The list of exhibiting illustrators is pretty amazing, and prints of the selected illustrations will be on sale.

It's organised by The Little Chimp Society and the exhibition is taking place from 7-11th April at The Framers Gallery in London's Fitzrovia. There's a private view on Thursday 9th from 6-8pm which is open to all, so please feel free to drop by if you're in the area.

And, hey, don't worry if you can't make it, you can still buy the book
