parabola project//
The Parabola Project is the brainchild of Telltales, a reading night launched in october 2008 with the goal of drawing together, developing and maintaining a strong creative writing community in cornwall.

The Parabola Project is a collection of work which represents the full writing spectrum in cornwall, profiling first time writers, up and coming talent and established wordsmiths alongside each other.

my bear illustrations (taken from an earlier picture book i created), form the backdrop to Jane Tozer's piece, Invocation to the Brown Bear.

art direction & design by Zander Grinfeld of Venn Creative.

pin it forward//
today i am taking part in pin it forward, an event organised by sfgirlbybay and pinterest.

pinterest is an online programme which allows you to bookmark images from the web in your very own curated gallery. you can follow other people's galleries, and re-pin their images to your own. it also allows you to link back to the original source so credit is given where credit is due!

today's pin it forward event's gallery theme is 'what home means to me', so here's a sneak peak at my own pin board.

I would also like to welcome ev photo chic, a photographer, crafter & designer, who will be pinning her board tomorrow. i look forward to seeing what home means to her!

the meat we eat//
this picture book is a satirical look at the meat industry. in this case, i am concentrating on the pork industry, but turning the process on its head, showing pigs farming humans in the same way that pigs are farmed in real life. the information contained in the text is a paired-down version of actual farming practices (with a little artistic licence in the illustrations!). i am not vegetarian by any stretch, but i wanted to create an awareness of the meat industry from a different perspective. what you take from this is up to you...
