July 26th, 2017 - JMJ created a selection of greetings cards called "Happy _____ Days." and named his exclusive key fob range 'Fobbed Off!' Returning for a 4th season to the Board Room, at Jordan's Solicitors, JMJ teamed up with Wakefield's premier poetry group the Black Horse Poets.
July 2016 - to mark 10 years since JMJ picked up a painting brush again (in May), JMJ launched his range of mini-print key fobs. Three designs: The Hep, The Grand Entrance and Stonehenge. He also adapted part of his The Grand Entrance painting to use as his main motif.
July 2015 - JMJ made a return to where it all began 'the chantry chapel on the bridge'. However, it was only for the 3 hours of the Artwalk and not a longer stay. Even though it was an exceptionally rainy evening, JMJ's art work, and its setting, attracted visitors from as far away as Australia and Canada.
