                             Dixon Does Doodles


Dixon Does Doodles is the brainchild of the talented Jonathan Dixon, an illustrator based in Bristol and a father to three mini maniacs! His colourful, comic book style zombies, dinosaurs and monsters of the deep feature on a range of ceramics, cards, stationary and body art. My favorites are the ceramic plates, which are hand drawn, wonderfully unique and make meal times great fun!

Like all little boys Jonathan loved drawing, especially dinosaurs and monsters. As a teenager his drawing style was influenced by the comic books he loved to read. Now playing with his three children provides Jonathan with the inspiration to dream up these comical yet desirable creatures.  Drawing had always been just for fun but with the encouragement from his family and close friends Jonathan decided to get his creations out there, and Dixon Does Doodles was born.

Dixon Does Doodles caught my eye at a Bristol independent market and they were like nothing I had seen before. The word quirky is used too often but how else do you describe a bright red giant squid on a dinner plate. I just had to have them in the shop, and glad I did because our customers love them. It’s still some time before my first child we be eating off a plate but luckily there is a big kid in the house who loves them too, my husband.
