A series of sketches inspired by 'The Bloody Chamber & Other Stories'. I have tried to emphasise the atmosphere of the stories by focussing on settings and environment rather than specific narratives and events.

I have made wooden stamps from the drawings of the Saturn rocket! They were engraved and cut on a laser cutter - an experiment into the combining of digital and traditional printmaking techniques. Fingers crossed, I will be printing them on the letterpress this week.
A selection of toys, often horrifying, from the V&A Museum of Childhood, including 'Robot the Robot', a wind up, guitar-playing bear and an astronaut robot.
I would love a Saturn model rocket just like that one. Santa, you better come through for me.
'Postmodernism: Style & Subversion' at the V&A was good... up until this. After looking at work about anti-commodity and consumerist culture, there was a gift shop. It made me really uncomfortable, and undermined the whole exhibition.
This is a haunting ensemble by Rei Kawakubo for Commes des Garcons.
