About

This is a blog about the Norms, a collection of funny little blobby creatures, who have only one arm, two eyes, and plenty of blue-glowing blobbyness. So as you can see, they are far from “normal” (their name in fact stems from a far more noble source, but more about that another day…). So what does this blog aim to do? Well, it will tell the story of the Norms, and follow what they are up to on a day to day basis. It will keep you informed about me, their artist creator, and what’s going on in my career. It will also tell you when and where various Norm paraphernalia is for sale, should you want to bring some Norm magic into your lives. Moreover, The Daily Norm aims to bring some daily cheer into your lives, and celebrate small forays into the good life. For in this time of relative austerity, life is all about celebrating the small pleasures in life and, as the Norms would say, abnormalising the normal. So please keep an eye on this blog, making this peculiar little celebration of artistic exploration your Daily Norm.

      Wow! That’s amazing thank you so much!! I didn’t know wordpress had awards… it’s wonderful to know that after only a few weeks of blogging, I am gaining fans. Your love of Paris is infectious… every time I read your blog it’s like being back there, so thank you for providing me with that link. The cafe is on me when I’m back in Paris!

  8. Thanks for following ‘Art, Writing, and Geeking Out’ and for liking my post. Your blog is fabulous. As my wife was reading over my shoulder, she named at least three friends who need to see this. We’ll be sharing your wonderful site. Thanks again.

      Thank you both so much! I was equally excited to find your blog and to see some of the brilliant illustration and art work contained on it…I have a very childlike imagination and love the fact that amongst your works, you do illustrations for childrens’ books. It’s wonderful stuff and I can’t wait to keep a tag of your blog and to watch your creations unfurl! Many thanks again for your support and for spreading the word about my blog over there in the US!

  20. Just a little note to say thank you following thisfloridalife. I appreciate all of my followers. I have to say I love your blog and find myself caught in European themed daydreams after reading your latest posts.

    • Hey don’t mention it – I love your blog for the same reason: because it offers an insight onto a sunny world across the Atlantic where I’d love to be but can only dream about while I’m sitting in raining London. Your support of my blog is massively appreciated. Just hope I can do yours as much justice!

      August 6, 2012

  24. you have such an amazing creative sense…the artwork is phenomenal. do you have a book out yet ?

    February 13, 2013
    • Wow, thank you! No, I don’t, although it’s been on my mind for sometime. I have at least 100 “Norm” sketches from the last year alone in addition to all the paintings etc so I have plenty of material. Now it’s a question of finding an elusive publisher, and market. If you have any tips, please let me know! Thanks for your comment :)

    Ahem, WHERE IS TODAY’S SUNDAY SUPPLEMENT?! Please and thank you.

    March 3, 2013
    • Unfortunately the Daily Norm journalistic team have been out “on the field” today researching for future features. As a result a bumper Lichtenstein special will be kicking off the week ahead with a big “whaam”… Oh what puns. Meanwhile the Sunday Supplements waits somewhat downtrodden in the wings for new paintings to emerge. Could be some time…

  27. Your art is amazing! It reminds me of the style and creativity of Salvador Dali.
