I've put a couple more things on the website. There's more stuff in the papercut portrait bit, which you've probably already seen and a new handmade toy thing up. Go look.
These fancy-pants photographs are by Jade Starmore who is awfully good and very nice, she wanted me to make a bird for a girl's hair. So I did.
I have a shoot with her on the 5th September involving the wolves from a few posts ago. IT IS VERY EXCITING.

More papercuts. I work in a bar-cafe type establishment called St Louis, after the film, Meet Me in St Louis, starring Judy Garland who's love interest is Tom Drake, (I did not know who Tom Drake was, I've never actually seen the film, but according to IMDB he was in an episode of Ironside in 1973 and I frickin' love Ironside so he's amazing in my book). So they were short signs for the toilet doors so I suggested doing a picture of the wonderful Judy on the ladies' and Tom on the gents'. Which I went and did. You see.
I'm really quite chuffed with ol' Judy up there but Tom's nose is annoying me. Face-on images are bad.
I'm not sure of what it means that the very first public hangings of my work are on toilet doors.

This is my Dad sleeping in a Christmas hat as he is wont to do post Christmas dinner. It is on a card. I am considering selling greetings cards with custom papercut portraits. Stupid idea? Anyone want one?
EDIT - OK. Set up a shop should anyone want such nonsense as this. FOLKSY BUTTON TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE. CLICK IT. TELL YOUR FRIENDS. I NEED SOME NEW SHOES.
