Got a call from an old friend before Christmas. He moved to Stockholm and is now managing the rebuild of a website for European Bartender School. They had a really great idea of promoting the schools in Europe an beyond (Thailand anyone?) with passport style stamps. Encouraging students to travel and holiday while they learn
This is the second in my series of Alphabet Animals. It plays on the well known saying, “Like a bull in a China shop!”, but with a twist. You can see the first one for ‘A’ here.
In 2011 I draw a little bat asleep on pumpkin for Halloween. One year on I thought I’d add it here :-). I only used flat colour and no outlines. It’s a style I will be using more of in the future. Simple, clean shapes that lean towards being a bit geometric. Keeping it super cute. An animal and a prop.
I’ve started a personal project to illustrate animals in professions, one for each letter of the alphabet. I’m drawing them in alphabetical order. So far I’ve done four. An albatross, bull, cat and dog. This is "A" for Ablatross. I’ll post about the others later. When I have all 26 done I’ll also have a complete set of alphabet professions :-).
Last July I had the pleasure of creating my second Silverlight app for Microsoft Advertising (You can read about the first one here) while working at VCCP. This Silverlight tool lets you view and filter videos from the Ad Vision series in an easy to use and visually engaging way.

I’m excited. Next month I’m going to watch the fencing at the London 2012 Olympics. In 2006 I joined a fencing club where I met Priscille and Claire. When they decided to start up there own club I had to join. The French Fencing Factory is a fun, inclusive place to fence and the members super friendly. Oh, and Priscille is probably the Frenchest person in England. If you fancy a spot of épée do look them up. :-)
What’ this you say? “Bring along a CD of your favourite songs and chuck it in the lucky dip. Watch the newest of new indie pop bands. Spend the rest of the night dancing to the greatest twee tracks. Then take home a random mix-CD on the way out. Where do I sign up!”
