I love it.
Last year I worked on a personal project called The AlleyCats. Each cat character is based on a particular type of creative person that I have been inspired by in my career. Due to popular demand, the six most popular characters are now available as art prints.

No to Buh! is a small blog project that evolved into a photo-drawn diary, sometimes accompanied by a few words of commentary. It’s a relief to bring reality back to that basic level of imagery again.
