  • Part time lecturer in illustration theory (BA first year)
  • Dissertation supervision

I am the director of a small publishing company, Zero Lubin which was set up with writer and performance artist Gerry King in 2009. The brand manifests itself in a variety of different artworks including cards, books, handkerchiefs, and performance. The cards and books are valuable tools for disseminating our practice to diverse audiences by exploiting an accessible and commercial format.

Recently I was commissioned by Will Self to illustrate an article he had written for Esquire Magazine. Since 1981 I have also worked as a freelance graphic designer for a wide variety of clients. I also exhibit my work independently and have work in public and private collections.

In 2007 I project managed ‘An-froo-ka’, a site-specific exhibition at Bristol Zoo. Devised and organised a related talk at Bristol City Museum with contributors from the fields of archaeology, anthropology, architecture and artist Richard Billingham. 

In 2004 I received a grant from Arts Council England in 2004 to set up a site-specific exhibition at Chichester District Museum.

In 2004 worked with Chichester Festival Theatre and BBC Concert Orchestra in various schools on an art and music collaboration. The resulting artworks were performed and exhibited at the Festival Theatre. The project was documented and broadcast by Radio 3.
