The Daily Grind

One of the first rhymes I ever wrote the concept for and was based on the thought, "what's pretty damn grim, but could happen?"



Based on a joke I was told when I was quite young, which certainly epitomises my sense of humor.


Puppy-dog Tales

Stereotypes and conventionally understood tropes are tools of the designer, especially when they are circumvented.


The Last Laugh

Most comments I get on these silly rhymes are, "I like the short ones." I like to think this generally defines my audience.


The Adventures of Mr Fish Bones

The classic image of the fish bones isn't seen so much these days, I have distinct memories of them always appearing in the Beano.


The Chill

It isn't until the first bill arrives do you realise why you can't crank the thermostat up to topical paradise.


Bag Head

I love the little giggle followed by the pause of, 'was that a bit too far'.


Apex Anon

Some ideas some through study, research, happen-stance, a floating paper bag. Other times it's just a word, vertigo.


Crumbling Matters

The one illustration featured I didn't conceive and as a result one of my favorites. I think it's such a creative idea.


The Calamitous Demise of the Despondent Cat

Based on a wonderful little comic strip I read entitled, Kitty #46.


The Finale of Mr Fish Bones

Poor Mr Fish Bones, he never gets his day in the sun.


Buoy Boy

Although you're not meant to, I think the U should be pronounced because it sounds bouncy.


Height x Width

Every now and then there's an object where the words long, width and length all mean the same thing.


Muffet Mountain

I love Roald Dhal, especially his adaptations of some of the classic tales.


Mystery Neighbor

The rhyme itself always felt a bit redundant - but I loved the illustrative interpretation.


Pogo Stick Girl

If in doubt add girl or boy to an object and maybe kill them at the end of the tale.


Too Many Cooks

Just like any creative process, sometimes the best stuff happens when you get it wrong.


An Inflexible Truth

A lesson for all you clangers - never antagonise the soup dragon.

Plumen light bulbs dangle in pendants above the dining room table, Bertoia diamond chairs are draped in fur throws and a rosewood Eames lounger is home to an owl shaped cushion with button eyes.
