Right well not that i'm a perfectionist or anything, ahem, but i've made a couple of small amendments to my promo flyer. Heres the final product (i think). Hope you like it.

Hello my one lonely follower..tee hee. Thanks friend :)
I have just finished a new promo flyer above for my work as an illustrator which i intend to distribute far and wide to get the word out that my skills are available for hire. Let me know what you think - be gentle.
Oh you may have noticed too that i have finally got my butt in gear and added a profile picture.

Competition entry

I have just put an entry into Creative Match's Flair competition.
Going to aim to do this on a regular basis just for fun mainly, but of course it would be great if i won :)
You can see my entry on: http://www.creativematch.com/?action=viewflair&fi=4401

Hope you like it its an image i did for NARC magazine for the pub quiz feature.
The illustration accompanies the question: 'What band is associated with this image?'
Hey why not see if you can guess the answer, but don't look at the image description on the Flair entry as it will give the game away!

I run a monthly art, craft and flea market in Newcastle Upon Tyne called the Make and Mend Market.
The event acts as a platform for emerging creatives such as artists & designers, and provides a space for individuals to recycle good quality unwanted items by selling them on.
The ethic is DIY & the entrepreneurial spirit! You can find out more by visiting:

I will be selling my handmade goodies at the Make & Mend Market on:
Sunday 7th February from 11am - 4pm,
Star and Shadow Cinema, Ouseburn, Newcastle, NE1 2NP.
