Gunns Designs

So first of all let me start by saying that Jack didn't pay me to write this post, nor did he even ask me to write this (probably because he doesn't ask anyone for anything, ever). It's written out of my absolute awe of Jack's talents and my want to spread the word so that his talent can be recognised. Because if anyone deserves to live their dream, it's Jack.

Jack and I met on our first day of University as we were in the flats opposite each other at the mighty Purbeck Halls at Bournemouth University. I have always been in awe of Jack's talent for art and design. It was something I always wanted to be good at, but I just wasn't, no matter how hard I tried, but Jack's talent is just so natural. 

In final year we somehow managed to convince Jack to live with us, a decision which he most likely regrets having to put up with a year of 3 girls taking forever to get ready, constantly moaning, bitching and making him watch girlie films and TV shows 24/7 - isn't living with girls fun!

Since leaving University, Jack had a small stint as a designer but decided the desk job and corporate life wasn't for him so has since been travelling and volunteering around the world, living in Nepal with a host family, and most recently in Ghana. You may remember at Christmas we organised the #BloggerBoxAppeal and made Christmas boxes for Children in Ghana? Everything was sent to the school Jack was working at. 

Since Jack has traveled so much, he's had the chance to see and experience things that most of us can only dream of, which I'm sure if the inspiration for a lot of his art. His talent is so incredible, Gunns Designs now features a shop so we can buy hand drawn art for extremely affordable prices - which is why I wanted to share them all with you as I know you'll love everything as much as I do.

Everything listed in his shop is between £5 and £25 which is ridiculously affordable (if you ask me, under priced!). Jack also works on private commissions so if there's something that you'd like which isn't listed, then let him know. 

But this isn't even the end of his talents. I've stolen the below photo from his website, which lists all of his other skills and expertise, which I know a lot of them will come in handy for us bloggers.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, Jack is also a fellow blogger, with a travel blog of all of his adventures. If you're looking for some things to add to your bucket list, look no further. Yes I know, there's no end to the talent...

It's so obvious this is what Jack was born to do so I'm now appointing myself his unofficial PR manager to help spread the word of his work. 

If you do one thing today, please let it be to check out Jack's website. I have listed all of the ways to contact him below so there's no excuse!
