Do you know tiny humans or any hyper intelligent apes that have time off of school? Well here are some worksheets that I normally take to Lil’ Merl kid’s workshops. Feel free to print them and you can email me any drawings. If you feel like.
Saw the trailer to the new Hobbit film and couldn’t help but notice that Tolkien might have had a Lil’ inspiration from a certain activity book ;<)
& here are some WIP trolls that I don’t think I’ll finish anytime soon.
This is a linocut I made for an exhibition in Scotland based on the election for independence coming up soon.
I live in an area in Wales where the government are making drastic cuts to a community where there really isn’t much to begin with. I have no faith in a party that seems to make decisions that continuously favour the rich and harm the vulnerable. Scottish independence should serve as an inspiration to the rest of the UK. Yes Scotland.

I have been asked by lovely people at Huis Hass to exhibit at Kornél in Antwep this September. I will be showing personal pursuits and a small slice of South Wales.
I am exhibiting along side Anton Van Hertbruggen which is both amazing and intimidating.
These are some trolls from my workshop at Victoria Park Books it was a fun time and I got lots of amazing drawings.
If your in Hackney visit Victoria Park Books it’s a great shop ran by some lovely people and a cool pup called Havrey,
I’m looking for more Lil’ Merl/fantasy pictures but more importantly children’s drawings and Filled in Lil’ Merl activity book pages as well. If you want to submit please email - SECRETTROLLCLUB@OUTLOOK.COM or contact me on twitter.

Hi guys I’m going to be at ELCAF this year not selling but hanging out and launching the new Secret Troll Club Tumblr. The aim of the Lil’ Merl book is to have kid’s draw all over it and have fun. The Secret troll club will be a place to record of those drawings. So if you do a drawing of Lil’ Merl, a troll, a gnome, a dragon or anything like that for the blog you get a discount on Lil’ Merl and the dastardly dragon, a sticker and if the drawings really cool a A5 Lil’ Merl riso print :o). Read more about it here.
Also there will be a chance to build your own 3D Merl like the one above and another million fun things to do at ELCAF.
& if any of you New Yoikers out there see it in print could you get a snap?
Fold out page that didn’t make it into the Lil’ Merl book I got the idea from a Simpson’s activity book I had as a kid.
Any of you kids wanna build this 3D Lil’ Merl and tweet/email me a picture? Possible prizes to be won.
