JUST FOR FUN! ------------------------ Here is some work I've done, either for competitions or for fun.

I entered several designs in a Blankie toy competition and "Hootie" was one of 13 chosen to be made into a toy! Please visit Aarting.com to view my design and also the others who also won.
The idea of the food chain isn't mine, but the design is. My brother asked me to make this for him. A poster of this currently hangs in my nephews room.
Here are some Christmas card designs that I made for my family business. They seem "cute" but I generally have a subtle sinister undertone for fun!
Wii Controller design templates that I designed for fun.
T-shirt design I entered to Threadless.com.
My entry for the Luas poster design competition
Designs I entered into a "Bag Design" competition.
My Wagamama "Back wall design competition" entry. In the end they chose no winning entry, but I got a free "starter,main course,desserts and drinks" voucher for 2! We totted up quite a bill! Thanks Wagamama!
On the right, my Walkers crisp "do us a flavour" design entry, for a "King Prawn Curry" Crisp flavour.
Cover and back of a childrens book I've written and illustrated which I hope to send off to some publishing houses this summer.
