Walking/Weightlifting Walking back from a gig with a very, … Continue reading How do musicians get to orchestra?
Sharks may have become my favourite thing to draw. They have such a bad reputation, but all they really want to do is eat fish and turtles and get on in life. My remedy to this is to draw them doing silly things because – as we learnt from Defense Against the Dark Arts in Harry Potter – if you turn something that scares you (Boggart or … Continue reading Sharks love to sing

This is the very first cartoon I ever created and now you can buy it on all sorts of things in my Zazzle store! As far as I can remember, the idea for this cartoon was sparked by a chat with a lovely friend (singer and teacher Sarah Barnett).

Hello! I am now “Plymouth’s top jazz flautist” according to twitter. I know this because I am probably the only jazz flautist in the whole of South Devon (with the exception of my dad, who often prefers to play saxophone). This post is a bit of everything – music I’ve recorded, pictures from the past year’s worth of gigs and news of gigs to come and … Continue reading Life as a Jazz Flautist in Devon: Chapter One
