Stag and Bow

The Stag and Bow, in Forest Hill, opens its doors today. Part shop, part work shop, running classes and activities for all ages, The Stag and Bow sounds just what Forest Hill needs. I wish them all the best.
Pascale and Cyrus have been working flat out to get this fine shop ready for today's grand opening.
What's more, they'll be stocking a variety of Sleepingcities goodies.
My colouring books, prints and cards will be available to buy. Isn't that exciting!

ACEO Towers





A little twist on the ACEO madness.
These Towers can be stacked in any order, as high as you like.
I think these would make great transfers for walls.
From a distance, they look just like stripes.
Wouldn't you love sleepingcities wallpaper!!!???

The Lovers Bridge ACEO




As with any good couple, these ACEOs are great on their own.
But when they're together, they're even better.

The Tiny World of ACEOs



Thought I'd have a go at some ACEOs.
These tiny originals sure are real fun to do. Very addictive and very satisfying. Thanks to the fellow Folksy members for introducing me to this..

Christmas Craft Fair






It's going to be a real cold one this weekend, but if you're in the London area and feeling adventurous, Forest Hill could be worth a visit . It's the Christmas craft fair at The Hob. Hurrah! Sleepingcities shall be there. My Christmas cards will be available, as well as prints, colouring books and some one-off originals. Double treat, because just around the corner is Havelock Walk Open Studios. It's not only a chance to nosey around artists homes and studios; there's some really fantastic art to be found there too.

Alphabet Buildings


It's been a while since I drew anything regarding the alphabet.
Thought I'd have another go.
A bit more work is needed on this idea (especially the lettering!),
but I am enjoying the simplicity of it.

Who doesn't love a little game!

A sketch from the Maldives


For our first wedding anniversary, my wife and I decided to visit a little bit of paradise. We love swimming in the sea. Thought a little sketch was in order.

I'm never usually this organised and I know it's only only August, but as soon as I got up this morning, I decided to start working on this years Christmas cards.
This is my first design. They'll be a few more coming.

Tile Tastic





Every now and then I am partial to sticking up the odd tile here and there.
Sometimes they get taken, but if you happen to spot an original sleepingcities as you wander the streets, tell me where you saw it, and you'll win a prize!

'Silence' completed







Had a good last few days, finally decided on a colour scheme, inspired by my wife's shampoo bottle!
I'm really pleased with the results. Catch it in a certain light and it really shimmers.
And after all, Silence is golden!!
The prints of 'Silence' may be my first 'limited edition'.

Well done London


I'm really excited for the new London bicycle scheme. Let's be positive and get behind it, or on it.
Listening to Robert Elm's yesterday on BBC London inspired me to do this little sketch.
