Putting myself on the map

I've drawn a big map of Witney, a little town in West Oxfordshire. It took a long time, but it was fun.

Thousands of copies have been printed and are all over Oxfordshire. If you find one, you can see me on it down by the river struggling with the scale of the bloody thing.

Alternatively you can click round the whole thing on this nifty website.

There was a lot to draw. People often never ask me how I draw so many trees and still have time to do so many valid and worthwhile things. The secret is to create a generative system. Simply by combining five drawings of trunks, and five sets of leaves I get twenty five trees. Genius, eh?

Cheesy Gash balls

Here is my flyer for last week's Gash!.

I didn't go but instead stayed in and made Jamie Oliver's cheesy surprise meatballs (spoiler alert: the surprise is that all the cheese disappears) and ended up cutting my finger really quite deeply. Isn't that ironic, don't you think?

This is my original biro drawing.

A final thought

Here are some of my favourite illustrations from Don't Even Think About It.
