My Brand New Website

I've got a brand new website! Check it out here. There's lots of new work, and more of my T-shirts, murals and screen prints. A huge thanks Shaun at Pictures & Writing for building the site to my specifications and designs, and improvements here and there!

Having a brand new site with an in-built blog means that this ol' thing of a blog will be coming to a close. But don't worry - I'll keep it up so as you still have something to look at whilst you're procrastinating at work - wouldn't want to deprive you of your lunchtime guffaws. Get your new fix here.

Overdue Robot Invasion

The automated juicers are coming! Here's a full-page illustration I did to accompany a finance publication's article about technological threats, robotic expectations, and the long-overdue robot slave takeover (predicted by the likes of Sarah Connor, Morpheus's gang, and various people wearing tin foil hats). I also did a couple of spot illustrations to be used throughout the article.

Wedding Crashers

Following on from some other wedding invitations I've done (for Tom & Alex and Avenue Litho) here are some wedding invitations I designed for some good friends of mine. Despite this - they still let me attend, and even usher. I shirked most of my responsibilities you'll be pleased to hear.
The invitations were printed by the nice people at Stampa Brighton. Here's the table plans I designed too, in a suitcase!
If you're an advanced stalker you can lurk at some more pictures of the day, including signs and table settings, photographed by the awesome official photographer Emma Boileau here. Congrats to Pete & Nikki!

Mabboo Summer Pop Up Shop

Following on from the Christmas pop up shop, Mabboo have a new pop up store in The Galleries, Bristol. Another chance to see my Mabboo painting if you're about, and check out the Gromit outside.

For the record...

Here's a gift I made recently on someone's behalf to give to a friend. The personalised full-size record sleeve is full of references to their friendship, childhood memories, and plenty of in-jokes! It looks like a dream sequence from Lost to me...

Sunday Express S Magazine

I did another illustration to accompany a fiction piece in the Sunday Express S Magazine at the weekend.
We've all been in this situation right? Packed train, bag-on-seat politics, some wally on their phone etc... you can read the full article here.

Notting Hill Amber

Went out in the Big Smoke the other week and happened to come across some bottles of Moncada's Notting Hill Amber for sale. I worked on the design and illustration of the West London-based brewery's bottle labels, identity & website, as part of my role at Yardpartners, so was good to see it out in the real world! Needless to say we had a few.

One's Direction

I've been creating some illustrations for director Carl Prechezer's blog. He's the director & co-writer of cult classic surf film Blue Juice, starring Sean 'son of the third doctor' Pertwee, Catherine Zeta Jones (said in a Welsh accent - obviously) and the young Obi Wan Kenobi. Carl also directs a lot of commercials and promotional films. Check out Carl P's words of wisdom here on his blog.

Online Publication: Matter

I recently created some illustrations for online cultural publication Matter, to accompany an article about opportunist cyber-scammers. Matter post insightful articles about... lots of different things really, but what they all have in common is that they're worthy of the nominal charge. Certainly for when the Mail Online just won't cut it on your lunchbreak. You can read a preview, and see one of my illustrations, here...

Still thinking about hibernating?

Here's some technical illustrations of a range of mattresses I drew recently. I also annotated them all in Polish (well...that someone else supplied). Having worked in a bed shop over a decade ago I can still spot a Continental Queen from a mile off.
