Plus Design Expo

In October I'll be showcasing new work at this years Plus Design Festival. Pretty excited, its looks as if its going to be good one. Some great names from the world of design Jasper Goodhall, Si Scott, Zip Design, Andy Potts and all the usual Brummie suspects. I hoping to get some tee's, prints & cotton bags done if i manage to finish all that in the next two weeks. Getting the matchsticks ready to pin my eyeballs open for a few late nights. Here's the press release info below:

Plus is a unique design-led festival showcasing all that is innovative, pioneering and novel in the world of international typo / graphic design.

The last six weeks I've been getting up at 8am to do the Sunday FLEA at the Custard Factory in Digbeth. Its an unique weekly street market that consists of an eclectic mix of artists, craftspeople, vintage clothing, children's activities, entertainers, films and food’. On rainy days you can find us in the Rojac building just under the arches of the Custard Factory.

I'll be there every sunday *except 14th Oct, selling limited edition fine art digital prints from £5-200 including some new designs. Pop along if you can or spread the word. The Flea is running every Sunday until Christmas.

I've been making digital art for only a couple of years now. I decided to start up currentstate as an avenue to do my own work and a reason to mess around on the computer, and get to know programmes like illustrator & photoshop. I'd always been drawing, infact i think i was born with a pencil in my hand, so naturally found myself doing a degree in Fine Art in 95.

For the last four years I've been lucky enough to work in a creative role, as graphic designer in NHS, albeit a little bit frustrating when all you can think about is doing your own stuff, but still a good learning ground.

In 2006 I did the Creative Alliance's After Hours course and decided that was a good plateau to start illustrating and doing some graphics that i finally wanted to do. I worked hard to put togther an exhibition called Love luck & Lollipops. In the month running up to the exhib I was really productive, I did book and produced a ton of new illustrations and artwork.
So now i'm mainly freelancing. The only thing is I've got so busy dong other people's work that I rarely get a chance to do the stuff I love and enjoy again, swings and roundabouts!
So most of these are about a year old.
