    Andrew Groves: Miscellaneous Adventures

Illustrator Andrew Groves channels his weird and wonderful style into wood carving

Posted by Holly Wilkins,

There is nothing more relaxing than sitting by a roaring fire in the countryside carving a spoon. This might not be for some people but it does work for illustrator Andrew Groves. Taking his love for the outdoors and all things natural, Andrew has started a craft project called Miscellaneous Adventures. His collection of exquisitely hand-crafted wooden things are the perfect accessory for outdoor frolics, and the more serious “quests” you may have to embark on.

Each item is lovingly created from wood taken from the wilderness beyond his home in the Sussex countryside. Not to mention the series of illustrations accompanying this project tie in the intention of nature and man living together in harmony. Don’t you just feel so lovely inside. On that note, Andrew is hosting a workshop in spring, let’s go make me a spoon!
