Another year, another approaching schoolyear, and another set of posters for my wife’s classroom. These are some posters based on early/mid 20thc public information posters. The rights are all based on the book ‘Classroom Behaviour’ by Bill Rogers.

I created these posters for my wife to put up around the classroom where she teaches, to help the kids remember the different components of sentences.

If you would like to use these for your own class, just let me know and I can send you the high res images. I made these to try and brighten up children’s learning environments, all I ask is that you let me know before you use them.

A poster I made for a friend who works for an amphibian and reptile protection charity. Apparently it’s a real problem that people are killing slow-worms because they think they’re snakes.

Illustration I did for a friend’s final project to accompany her poem “Catford”.
 Writing practise papers on a print off of GP practises, wide-eyed white eyes in the blackness of a black cab with black tinted windows in Blackheath. Everyone sussing nobodies out, “She’s poisonous I tell you”. Everywhere’s downhill from this high, black plague state. Envisioned between high visibility coats and a road that goes no where close to where you want to be. A skateboard held close to a body of cold,  close to bodies of no means other than closeness, for the sake of being warm. Engulfed in eczema eyes, boundaries of lies, hushed names and blurred lines. Don’t speak unless spoken to and  don’t mention any names,  ever.

Another Pun based drawing.
I know I said no more Star Wars for a while but when Bonnie Burton announced it was “Boosk Day” I felt this needed to be done.
Star Wars vs. Metal Gear.

Western Diplomacy
Pun.
If it needs deeper meaning, then it’s a commentary on The conservatives coming into power in the British national election, the year following the conservative republican party in the US losing it’s foothold to the democrat Obama. As if there will always need to be a sense of balance in the world.
But mainly it’s just a pun.
