Matthew Plowright

Matt found his way into his first exhibition earlier this year when he took over a corridor at Duncan Macmillan House, Nottingham. 
I managed to get myself there for the day to see his amazing illustrations for his collection of Rodger the Prawn books and his acrylic paintings inspired by artists such as Dali, Picasso and Van Gogh. 

If you haven't seen his work, then its definitely one to check out, all images are done by hand and Matt's imagination is out of this world! 

You can find him here on Facebook. 

Here's a selection of photos I took (with his permission!) at his exhibition...

'My Other Minotaur'

'Skelly Fishmas Party'

'The Beaks on the Bus' & 'After Friedensreich Hundertwasser' 

'Elizabeth McGobble Gobble the 1st'

'The Golden Wonder of the One Eyed Queen'

'The Moosehallucination'

and here's some of my faves from the past...

'Mane Man'

'Billy Brittle'

Agreed?! Awesome illustrations? YES!

Hoppity Roo

firstly...happy easter! 

I would like to share with you a new and exciting brand called Hoppity Roo based in West Yorkshire. Ranges include stationary & giftware at present. But I'm sure this will be an expanding brand to keep an eye out for! 

Check out Hoppity Roo; become a fan on Facebook, follow on Twitter and shop on Etsy. 

Here's a little sneak of some of their work...

I love this 'Funky Florals' print with its simple colour palette, and repetitive pattern.
