Mill Co. in London. It was the Mill Co. Third Annual Exhibition in partnership with The Co-operative and as such the brief was 'co-operation'. Above is my take on this brief, and I am rather happy with the result considering my studio set up at the moment. I have shown you a little glimpse of my work space in the second picture, but what this doesn't show is the few inches of floor space I have to work in! Time for a sort out I think. The print should be for sale very soon over at the Mill Co. store.

Prema. Can you make us a rocket shaped card rack? Oh, go on then, if I must. I cannot tell you how happy I am when people get in contact with a really fun project that you can get your teeth into. Happy days! It sits rather comfortably next to the a board I built for them a little while ago.

Over the last few weeks I have been lucky enough to become part of the lovely Ticktockrobot team, an animation company based down in sunny Brighton. Not only that but a really pleasant job came along even before the ink had dried on the contracts. We were asked to create a series of six stings that highlight the various areas and events that are happening during this years Goodwood Revival Festival. Above is the fruits of our labours.
Not only a fun and satisfying job to work on, but hopefully the start of a beautiful relationship!

Wills Art Warehouse. They are being kind enough to take all my work to the Affordable Art Fair in New York and I am really excited to see how my work goes down across the pond.
The 'Keep The Home Fires Burning' design may well yet turn into a paper based screen print, but maybe a few days off first!

The dirty old pub sign has been scrubbed, buffed, polished, painted and varnished into a new, gleaming swing sign for The Hare public house in Bedminster, Bristol. It was lovely to be asked to create an eye catching sign for this new venture and I hope it has many happy years swinging in the breeze, attracting punters in for a pint or two.

Had a manic couple of days last week getting everything ready to send up to London in time for the Affordable Art Fair. It was one of those weeks where you need the screen printing to go smoothly as you have a deadline to meet, which basically means that everything goes wrong. This proved to be the case, with the exposure unit playing silly buggers, but I managed to print, frame, label and pack just in time, wrapping the final package as the delivery driver took it out of my hands! The fair runs from 15th - 18th in Battersea, with my work being exhibited with the lovely people at Wills Art Warehouse. All information is here.
If you do get along to look at some lovely art, you will have a chance to see new, larger versions of my stamps. Puffin, fox, squirrel and owl so far, with the otter to join the gang next week. For those not going, the are now available here.

A nice delivery in the post containing three old tin Hornby Pullman carriages. An absolute bargain from ebay, and I think very good inspiration for a new print.
Also, the arrival of the carriages reminded me I had a few (about six) of these 'Rolling Stock' prints hiding out in my studio. They are now in my shop and going at the bargain price of ten English pounds! Get yourself one here, but be quick.

I was recently commissioned to turn one of my small puffin stamps into a large puffin stamp to adorn the walls of a little cottage in Devon called, of all things, Puffin Cottage. It was strange turning something that has only ever existed as a tiny screen print into a much bigger image, and I was worried that the stamp would lose a little something. I was wrong, and I love the result, so keep your eyes peeled for a few of these designs appearing in a larger format in the near future. Hopefully in time for the Affordable Art Fair (more on that soon).
If you wish to stay in a lovely cottage with the above print keeping you company, you can! Here.

A nautical proverb, a tall ship, a sea monster. What more could you ask for in a screen print? This large, new print was supposed to have been completed just before Christmas, but my old Mac decided to corrupt the file, so I literally had to start from scratch and rebuild from the ground up. I hope you think it was worth it? It is now on its way to London for the opening of the Illustra8 show at Wills Art Warehouse. If you ever find yourself mooching around Putney between 25th Feb to 30th March, why not pop in and have a snoop.
Also available in my shop, here.

I have been a bit quiet on the blogging front recently due to the arrival of little man you see above. This little dollop, or Harry as we call him, has been in mine and Teresa's life now for 11 weeks and a little bundle of joy he is to! There are lots of exciting projects lined up for me this year, new clients, new prints and plenty of work to be done, so hopefully the Old Boy Frost can fit everything in now the New Boy Frost is in the world!

Only a few weeks left! I have had a selection of my work hanging in the lovely Maitreya Social in Bristol for the past few months, so if you were lucky enough to sample some of the fine, fine food, you would also have had a treat for the eyes as well. All good things must come to an end though and the work comes down at the end of this month. Fear not though, the exceptional cooking continues! Check out their website.
