The perfect wedding present...

It's that time of year again. Save the dates are coming through the post and the weekends throughout the summer are getting full up with weddings of friends and family. 

If nothing catches your eye on the wedding present list, or don't fancy sending an impersonal envelope of cash to the lovely couple, how's about a bespoke, personal hand drawn print, full of all the details of their big day? 

I am now commissioning orders for personalised wedding prints! See below for a lovely example of one I did for Emma and Jack for their big day back in September, now hanging on the wall in their marital home, taking on the colour theme of their wedding too. 

You can have one of these lovely prints for £45 including postage.  

Email me at for a quote and we can get cracking on the best wedding present you will ever buy...

Jessica Rabbit 'Do Right' print is now for sale!

Hooray! Been a bit slow with getting these up, but February is a birthday month, so not a lot got done apart from drinking, dancing and cake eating I'm afraid. I'll do better this month. Promise. 

Anyways here she is! Available to buy from my etsy shop whatwheelermakes for £10 plus P&P with £5 from every print going to Frenchay Hospital, Bristol. Add some more money to the pot people!

Screen Printing at PrintClubLondon

Yesterday I went to PrintClubLondon screenprinting workshop in London to finally learn how to screenprint! I have been wanting to go on this course for ages as I never had the oppurtunity to learn how to do it at college or university (£3000 a year down the drain there then...) Their site can be found here, where you can book a days screenprinting beginners course for the bargainous price of £45. Marvellous! 

Needless to say it was so so good, and I now have the screenprinting bug! Have so much respect for people who print more than one colour, as it is so hard to get it right first time! There were some amazing prints around the studio on drying racks and whatnot and can't wait to see all the work at Pick Me Up at Somerset House in London in April. 

Here are some snippets of what my prints look like, limited edition screenprints will be available to buy soon. Some of them have some happy accidents on them where the ink bled through into the white space, but I actually really like it, and have one of the 'imperfect' ones hung on my wall, as I kind of prefer it to the perfect one!

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 14

Happy Valentine's Day y'all, I made it! 

Inspiration for this one comes from Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist... 

"You know the reason The Beatles made it so big?...'I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That's what everyone wants. Not 24/7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche...or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have such a feeling that they can't hide. Every single successful song of the past fifty years can be traced back to 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' And every single successful love story has those unbearable and unbearably exciting moments of hand-holding.” 

So here it is The Beatles - I Wanna Hold Your Hand
