I'm so pleased to announce that my Golden Peacock bench raised £7000 at a charity auction on Friday 15 September - the joint highest sale of the night.

On the night, the Sitting With Jane auction raised a staggering £95,700, with 75% of that going towards the Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

The Sitting with Jane trail was a summer-long art trail to mark 200 years since Jane Austen's death - and saw Basingstoke reclaim their most famous daughter as their own. My Golden Peacock bench was inspired by the most famous Pride and Prejudice book cover.

In case you're wondering what happened to my other bench 'Once Upon A Time in Steventon' - this was sold privately to the bench's sponsor.

To celebrate opening their 1000th UK store in Overton, Domino's asked me to design a limited edition 'Domi-note' :-) 

100 of the notes were hidden in Overton, Hampshire - each one worth a free pizza. The note is in homage to Overton's history of producing bank notes, and I had creative freedom to interpret the brief in my own way. 

Nationwide, Domino's celebrated the opening by giving away 10,000 free pizzas, drumming up interest in the national media, including NME and Metro

This summer I'm excited to be involved in Basingstoke's Sitting With Jane art trail! Running from June - end of August, the trail sees Basingstoke celebrating - and reclaiming - its most famous daughter, Jane Austen.

Jane Austen was born and spent more than half her life in the Basingstoke area, yet this local heritage is not well-known. Sitting With Jane is about to change this!

There are 24 BookBenches to discover in total, each painted by an artist, and inspired by Jane Austen's life and work.

My benches are:

'The Golden Peacock' - my own vibrant interpretation of the most famous Pride and Prejudice book cover. You can find this bench at Eastdrop Park, Basingstoke.

'Once Upon a Time in Steventon' - which depicts Jane's birthplace, the tiny rural village of Steventon. You can find this bench at Tythe Barn, Basing House.

The benches will be auctioned off in September for the Ark Cancer Centre Charity, leaving a valuable lasting legacy in the region.

I'm extremely proud that one of my designs for the National Literacy Trust's Card to the Bard auction features on The Guardian website.

The sleeping fox artwork is my interpretation of Shakespeare's line 'Honey-heavy dew of slumber.'

I designed 4 postcards for the auction, and there are also designs from many authors, actors, poets, and artists, including Julie Walters, Antony Gormley, and Emma Thompson!

See all the designs, and bid until 5 October right here.  Do it, all proceeds go to the National Literacy Trust!
