400th Twitter Follower Giveaway (The First)

Through some kind of supernatural force, I'v managed to get over 400 followers on my twitter account ( and to celebrate I offered my 400th follower some free stuff.

The 'lucky' winner was Kristina Vasiljeva (@kvasiljeva) who got the contents of the above photo: the original Cassette Playa watercolours which were used at Amelia's Magazine for articles about Cassette Playa at London Fashion Week and my own experience at London Fashion Week, and a copy of The Intercorstal:Collider.

Hopefully she doesn't hate either... Kristina also has some great work on her blog, which everyone should go and check out.

Through a bizarre logic loophole, I actually had a SECOND 400th follower... Mr Anxiety Decending himself, and he'll get some stuff in the post too, eventually.

Feature updates...

Forgot to say in my last post: I've recently had work featured on two very special blogs!

The first was on the outstanding Ballad Of..., who made me their featured illustrator on the 25th April take a peek here:

Also, uber-trendy fashion store Lucy In Disguise featured a set of illustrations that previously appeared at Amelia's Magazine, and it included an illustration of mine. Take a look here:

Lame Ol' Me

I've been very bad at updating recently -- a mixture of the recent run of Bank Holidays and the culmination of some big projects at work have meant I've been away from Ol'Blogger for a bit.

Not that I've not been busy, though -- a new Intercorstal comic called 'Valentine' was created, but at the last moment myself and Anxietydecending decided to experiment with the format, which means doing more pages for it. Some of the pages I've finished are up at The Intercorstal Blog.

I've also applied for inclusion in The Chelmsford Arts Trail, curated this year by The Shiny Shed. And I really, really want to get into it -- last year's was great, and I thoroughly enjoyed walking around the town looking at all the stuff on display, and think my proposal of turning a shop window into an Intercorstal page could be a good match, but we'll see.

As always, I've been doing some stuff for Amelia's Magazine -- take a gander at these articles to see what I've been upto.

Will write again soon, hopefully with some good news on stuff.
