It's almost Christmas! And I've got some Bristol Christmas cards and prints for the Bristolian in your life! For sale on my Etsy page here.
They're both of the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge, depicted from the Cumberland Basin.
The Bristol print could make a great stocking filler. It contains some little nods to the Bristol Balloon Fiesta (which we sadly didn't get to enjoy the full experience of this year because of you know what) and the Bristol Crocodile! I always like to add fun details to my work.
The Bristol Christmas card is the same scene but with Bristol enjoying a beautiful snowy Christmas! There's a snowman, a sled and people skating on the River Avon. The Bristol Crocodile must be in hibernation for this one.
The Bristol Clifton Suspension Bridge print is A3 sized and printed on 250gsm silk paper. I send them out rolled, in an A3 cardboard tube (no plastic involved!).
The Bristol Christmas card of Clifton Suspension Bridge is printed on thick, recycled A6-sized paper. It comes with an envelope made from recycled paper and I package them in biodegradable corn starch bags. They are sold singularly or in packs of 4.

I really enjoyed working on this commission to produce a selection of South African-themed animals for a feature wall in a client's house.
The animals -- including a clouded leopard and a Knysna Loerie -- were printed on adhesive vinyl and then applied to the statement wall.
As I create all my art as vectors, they can be scaled up to any size and won't lose their quality.
See the work below, and get in touch through my contact page if it's something you'd like. I'm now taking commissions for 2021. I can use some of my existing illustrations -- see a sample on my Etsy page here -- or something custom-created,
There is a beautiful Christmas lights display in Alexandra Gardens in Clevedon at the moment!
Funded by Clevedon businesses, the Clevedon BID has put up some beautiful lights in the park between the two independent shopping streets of Alexandra Road and Hill Road to make it look like an enchanted forest at night.
They are switched on at 3pm every night and there are also other lights on Hill Road and Alexandra Road. The park itself is a beautiful place to visit in the day too as dozens of squirrels charge around, up and down the trees.
It's also just a short walk from the seafront and Clevedon Pier.
Here are some of my pictures of the Clevedon Christmas lights (you can click on each picture to see my designs of Clevedon too):
And the Discover Clevedon post on Instagram about the lights too:
Eco-Friendly, Handmade Christmas Gifts, Stocking Fillers: Cushions, Napkins, Tea Towels, Lavender Bags
Did you know? I've also created a limited range of eco-friendly, hand-made cushion covers, napkins, tea towels and lavender bags with my designs on.
They are made from recycled polyester and organic cotton, highlight animals that are at risk of extinction and make great environmentally-conscious Christmas gifts and stocking fillers!
SCROLL DOWN TO SEE A SAMPLE OF THE ECO-FRIENDLY CHRISTMAS GIFTS.
There's my Paradise collection -- featuring orang-utans, Sumatran tigers, green peacocks and clouded leopards. And my British insects collection -- featuring bumblebees, the Chalkhill blue butterfly, the silver skipper spotted moth and the swallowtail butterfly.
I sourced the recycled fabrics from a UK company and the covers, napkins and tea towels were put together by a local Clevedon-based seamstress. The lavender bags were created from offcuts from the other products, meaning none of the fabric I bought went to waste.
This is a limited edition range that I'm really proud of -- once they are gone, they are gone! -- and think they make the perfect eco-friendly Christmas stocking stuffers!
Visit my Etsy store to see the products. I've also sold the patterns as rolls of fabric, and they can be adapted to any other product too (such as adult and child matching aprons, wallpaper, mugs, etc..). My vector illustrations can be scaled up to any size (I've recently created some bespoke wall art for a client). So if that's something you'd be interested in, then please get in touch through the contact page.

Puffins are my favourite birds, so this year I released these puffin Christmas cards.
I've seen puffins on the beautiful Farne Islands, off the coast of Northumberland, once. We stayed in the lovely little town of Seahouses and went for walks on the massive beaches before heading up to the North York Moors and having an amazing fish and chips at the Magpie in Whitby. I've also seen puffins on Skomer Island, off the Pembrokeshire coast, twice -- where it involved a very early start and drive across Wales because you can't book tickets on the boat, it's first come first served.
Anyway, my puffin Christmas cards are available to buy on my Etsy page here.
They are also available as part of my Christmas birds pack (featuring robins, partridges and owls) on my Etsy page here.
I've also got this non-Christmas puffin greetings card for sale on my Etsy.
As with all my cards, they are printed on thick recycled paper, come with an envelope made from recycled paper and are packaged in a biodegradable packet.
These images are also available as one-off prints, please get in touch via the contact page if you would like something customised.

Living near Bristol, I've crossed the beautiful Clifton Suspension Bridge countless times and I always marvel at what an amazing structure it is!
To pay tribute, I designed this Clifton Suspension Bridge Christmas card that's available to buy on my Etsy store here.

I've also illustrated the Clifton Suspension Bridge as a non-Christmas scene card, and it is available as a print on request.
You can also put yourself into the picture. Please get in touch via the contact page if this is something you may be interested in.
