Two book projects I´m currently working on – `illustrations without words´ and…..
`Thinking Things´ – a collection of cartoons
– Do things think? Who knows? Well ok, bear with me… What if they did think … What would they be thinking?
This is the Thinking behind my ´Thinking Things´ project
DOG ENDZ – A collection of wooftastic cartoons is available to sniff out on AMAZON!
At the start of 2020, my next project was going to be series of paintings about climate crisis. Then along came the Covid pandemic, lockdown, and the ‘New Normal’.
I drew a cartoon of a dog sniffing another’s smelly bits, blissfully unaware of social distancing. It went down well on social media, and I realised that instead of yet more gloom and doom, I should try to make people smile.

Exhibtion ‘Rescue Me‘ Centro Cultural Del Adeje’ Tenerife – October 2019 – The paintings are based on dogs I’ve met in the refuges and abandoned on the streets in Tenerife. The aim was to get people to think about the plight of these abandoned dogs, show that there can be a better future for them, and to motivate people to do something. The message is: visit a refuge and rescue a dog!
