Aspire

Here is a little bit of my work used in a Aspire college course guide for Bolton College. A healthy blend of photography in partnership with illustration. Other news on monday for the first time I tackled the Peak District on my bike and tackled the infamous Strines. It was a tough ride the scenery was beautiful and by the end of my bike ride I'd ridden 105 miles and was real hungry...

Impact

Last thursday one of my Tour de France prints was auctioned at a charity event in Nottingham for the charity Impact helping youngsters in there educational requirements. It raised a £1000 and I was well chuffed about that. Sir Steve Redgrave was there and the star of the night who people were keen to meet and enjoy an evening with; in conjuction with Gleeds.

Nude

Here is a little nude I drew up for a little show of nudes drawn and painted on postcards which will be at the Horsebridge Centre in Whistable Kent. Other news its a little breezy outside and I've got a stack of books I'm ignoring reading at the moment I just seem to fill my time doing stuff.

sketchbook

Here is an edited view of a drawing I conjured up in my sketchbook thinking about a little contribution I could make to a project possibly. This morning just did 24 miles on my bike and found breakfast at the Garden Rooms in Braithwell, which felt well earnt this week after some of my bike riding this week.

Smugglers

Here is an ident for Smugglers a hostel in deepest Scotland. Where you can rest your weary head after hiking or cycling exploring the beautiful landscape it serves up. Got to admit its a tad windy today I fear those cyclists on strava will be working out tailwinds to go top ten on certain segments...

Giro

Well the Giro is well under way, the weather over Donny Monday and Tuesday was beautiful to cycle in. It felt like I'd been reborn cycling in shorts after months of wet and cold weather. My mates on the bikes are starting to look like pieces of sculpted mahogany. I'm sure my strava said other day you went out looking like a milk bottle and returned like a piece of mahogany. Meanwhile you can get this Giro Wiggo tee over at Romster bikewear...

Mural

Here is a cheeky little mural I did on a wall at a branch of Marks & Spencers its soon to be painted over in the next week or so I've been told. Today I've completed 65 miles on my bike the afternoon riding through up some lovely little hills to get me fitter.

Giro d' Italia

Well its almost upon us once more, I for one hope Sir Wiggo can win this epic race. I would love to see a British rider win this grand tour. Today over Donny my way its been sunny and this afternoon I did a crafty few hours in the sun. It was great after months of cold and wet it felt really refreshing to be outdoors..
