Festival Folk is out

Updated: Jan 2, 2019

After a lot of hard work and sleepless nights, my first proper book, Festival Folk, it out!

This is the blurb, written by my fantastic publishers Cicada, for my book

'All around the world there are little known local festivals, rooted in ancient pagan traditions. At the centre of these festivals are characters dressed in the most remarkable costumes imaginable. The Kukeri in Bulgaria wear enormous headpieces made of goatskin and The Burryman festival in Edinburgh features a man covered from head to toe with burrs and thorns. 40 remarkable festivals are documented in this offbeat, anthropological atlas that will delight children and travel enthusiasts alike.'

The book was basically my dream project, two years in the making and something that I'm really passionate about. It was a labour of love, a nightmare at points but it's one of the things I'm most proud of in my life in illustration.

I had to steal any spare moments I could to work on the book - including trying to finish it in China

You can buy the book here and I designed a whole load of FF products (prints, pin badges and greetings cards) that you can buy from my shop
