Latest News May 2015

Phil Griffin and myself were shortlisted for the prestigious (and inaugural) UWE / Moleskine Reportager 2015 Award in celebration of reportage drawing (May 2015). This was for our collaboration 'You May Look at a Building' about One St. Peter's Square, Manchester commissioned by developer Argent PLC in August 2014.

We have also been commissioned by Didsbury Arts Festival to produce drawings and writing about Didsbury which will be exhibited at Croma, Didsbury, during the Didsbury Arts Festival in June 2015. More info to follow soon including details about the private view evening.

I am delighted to confirm that I have recently been elected as a member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts (MAFA).

My book Archisketcher (publisher Rotovision UK / North Light Books in US) is now available on Amazon for preorder - publication July 2015
