Other things I like to do

When I’m not pushing pixels round a screen or creating images, I like to make stuff. Any stuff really, I’m not fussy. I love to design books. I wrote and designed a book called Sweet Memories the Story of Urney Chocolates, documenting the rise and fall of my great grandparents’ chocolate factory. You can see my illustration work here.

I write and illustrate a blog that talks about all things eco-friendly. The aim is to make green issues easier to digest and a lot more fun. Strictly no preaching.
