The Shop Cometh

Hi Folks. I'm sure you've all seen me babbling on about moving house recently. Well one of the main reasons for the move was because we managed to find a property with a shop space to expand the business to a new level. We have now got the green light on the shop which is attached to our house and will be starting work on it at the beginning of April. Until now everything has been a little hush hush as we didn't want to tempt fate too much, but now its official. The new shop will be called 'Made By' and will stock all the clumsy pickle range as well as a whole host of other items we have been working on over the last few months. About 95% of everything in store will be hand made or designed by us and will be unlike anything else in the area. There will be an online shop as well so if you're not around Grimsby and can't get to the shop then you'll still be able to buy all of our range via the wonders of the internet. 
The twitter account and facebook page are running now so come and say hi I'll keep you posted of all the upcoming news.

It's Adventure Time

Hi folks I've started getting back into the flow of drawing again after the move which is great as it was driving me crackers lol. The piece I'm working on at the moment is something a little special as its for a charity auction set up by a good friend Mike Jackson with all the proceeds going to cancer research UK. Check out his site for more details as there are lots of pieces up for sale.
I love Adventure Time and thought what better to draw than a little bit of fan art. This is A3 and will be coloured with Letraset Promarkers. As soon as I get some colours on it I'll post it on here for you all to look at.

Sketch Cards

Today I thought I'd show you a different aspect of art work I've been working on over the last few months. These are sketch cards which are 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" cards. I've drawn loads of different things on these in the past from Judge Dredd to Monsters Inc and everything in between. Below is a little sample of some of the most recent. I'll start putting some more up on the blog for you to look at soon. They will also be going up in the shop so feel free to drop an email if you're interested in any of them. 

I hope you enjoy them and if you have any requests then feel free to add a comment and I'll see what I can do.

A New Chapter

Good evening one and all. I hope you're all doing well. Things have been a little busy of late here at the pickle, hence the distinct lack of blogging. We moved house on the last Wednesday of Feb and were slowly getting a semblance of normality back. The new place is a Georgian gem so high ceilings and tall skirting boards all round. We're slowly doing it up as you can see from the pictures of the living room below, so it's definitely a work in progress. Part of the reason we moved to this new place is because of the fantastic opportunity in the form of the shop that were going to be renting with it. Yes that's right folks I said shop!!! Coming soon will be a new shop stocking Clumsy Pickle artwork as well as all sorts of other cool stuff that I'll surprise you with later. So for now I'll leave you with these tantalising glimpses of the new chapter in the Clumsy Pickle story.
