UK Sea Areas Map

I am currently working on a UK sea areas map. Inspiration for it is the BBC Radio4 shipping forecast. Named areas are Viking / North Utsire / South Utsire / Forties / Cromarty / Forth / Tyne / Dogger / Fisher / German Bight / Humber / Thames / Dover / Wight / Portland / Plymouth / Biscay / Trafalgar / FitzRoy / Sole / Lundy / Fastnet / Irish Sea / Shannon / Rockall / Malin / Hebrides / Bailey / Fair Isle / Faeroes / Southeast Iceland

Peter Jefferson's 'And now the shipping forecast' covers the subject from all angles. I also stumbled across this live ships map which tracks position of ships around the world. 

Any feedback, (especially from mariners off UK's shores) is much appreciated.

Crystal Palace FC Scarf - screen print

the screen

on the drying rack

I'm not much of a football fan but I admire my boyfriend's old Crystal Palace scarf. He wears it in one of his childhood photos. I love the old logo (1994 - 2013); with the not so agile looking eagle and face-on graphic image of the original glass palace. The resulting screen print is a limited edition of 95. Prints can be purchased on seagullhut.com for £85.

The Name of the Rose - book cover design

I've always wanted to design covers for my favourite books. To start I chose Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose. Lettering is inspired by medieval black letter and floral ornaments (interwoven rose stems with thorns) since the story is set in1327. For texture and colour I tried out different worn textile covers, leather and gold leaf (a bit OTT I know..). More about the book.
