Two wedding invites I recently designed for my 2 best pals who are getting married in June. The first one is for Chanelle and Nico - he’s from Berlin and her family are from Antigua (hence the stamps) and they now live together in Bermondsey. And the second one is for Annie and Ben.

Just popped into the Jerwood Drawing prize at the Hatton Gallery on my way home and had three seperate ‘oh, arse why didn’t I make this’ moments.I seriously haven’t suffered this much self loathing since I first discovered Daniel Zeller

The first piece is A Place in Mind by Emma Moxey who ‘positions herself as an abstract explorer and mapmaker’

The following 3 photographs are all from 'Imagery Imaginary - volume 4' by Lottie Jackson-Eeles Delicious drawings of brutalist stairwells combined with agony tiny geometric patterns and patches of loose watercolour. I am desperately in love with this piece. I think I might want to own this even more than I want a Fiona Rae.

The final piece is ‘Tokyo Underground Encrypted’ by Paul Bradley. I can’t find anything about him on the web so had to upload this pretty useless image from the catalogue. It appears to be the tokyo underground map cut up into tiny pieces and rearranged into some kind of secret code which has then been hand rendered onto a tiny graph complete with little numerical notations all down the side. 

In case you only know me as a knitter I used to draw. My work was all based on explorations of The City, Psychogeography and general map-geekery. You can still see some of it here

It’s been a busy couple of weeks with Small Flame packages going out to New Zealand, Belgium and Scotland. My latest commission was this blanket for brand new baby Martha. I love the colours that her parents chose for her and I hope that they are happy with how I put them together!
