• Pomp, circumstance and celebrity: People watching in Windsor

Ten watercolours from my Windsor on My Wall project are featured in The Illustrated City in The Guardian online. In this weekly series professional illustrators around the world publish words and images about their home towns. My contribution includes scenes from the sidelines during high profile events in Windsor. I am in excellent company, with talented fellow contributors in Mexico, Cameroon, Iceland, the USA, Japan, Indonesia, the UK, India, Chile and other countries. Well worth a look.

• Pentel Tradio Stylo 40th anniversary in August 

Forty years ago Pentel launched the Tradio Stylo pen, a refillable pen with dye-based ink and a flexible delta tip. Seven years ago the Tradio was my drawing tool of choice as I set out to train myself to sketch every day. This year I am one of a number of artists who will be featured on a new Pentel Tradio 40th anniversary website, with artwork and testimonials to celebrate the fourth decade of this iconic pen. The launch date is August -- watch this space!
