The years almost dead

well here are a few bits out of my sketchbook for you. my Brit-ish book is now available to buy from the Aspex art gallery in Portsmouth, but its a limited run so if you want one get down there quick. Its glossy, has loads of drawings and sometimes even some writing, so get one in your life.

Mores stuff coming before the year is dead.

And found out some of my work is going to be featured in a Brochure by "i love dust" promoting creativity in Portsmouth, which is rather exciting too......

THIS IS YOURS- Canadian packs

Im about to embark upon a three week holiday through Canada, I am planning to leave fifty of my packs upon the streets and various destinations that I travel to. If you find one you can let me know by posting a comment here or sending me a card back!

I wonder how many, if any, responses I will get. Although I would be quite happy if I made someone smile when they found one.
Anyway I shall post me sketchbooks when Im back, wish me luck.

officially a struggling artist

Well university is over, now the joyous and completely unromantic process of sorting a c.v out begins whilst working and attempting to have the artwork flowing freely. However I have managed to create two poster designs for a recent Vinyl exchange event for the upcoming record label "Chakra Sounds". I though you might like to see them in their collaged and colorful glory.
Im off to Canada for three weeks so expect a humongous update of treats when i return....

A Word to the Wilde's

This is another book I created, again using my typewriter, envelopes and this time the poetic wit of Oscar Wilde. Enjoy.

Words of Winston

I had a lot of envelopes left over from my frantic collaging. Just two weeks left until hand in now! I have however discovered my old typewriter. With the envelopes and typewriter I have created a book containing my favourite quotations spoken by the man himself Sir Winston Churchill. Im also a little fucked off with him continually being hijacked by that racist twat Griffin.

So heres some scanned pics of my book titled "Words of Winston".........typed by me. enjoy.

Special Brew

I discovered that Carlsberg Special Brew, the drink commonly seen being purchased by absolute lunatics, was originally created to commemorate Winston Churchill visiting Denmark in 1950. Astounded by this absolute treat of a fact I decided to make this picture. Attempting to use the hue of the delightful gold and maroon used on the can of that fine quality lager itself. enjoy

Today I'm slating religion.

more britishness stuff. Found out that the archbishop is given the term "primate of all england" coming from the latin primus- meaning first. I personally just think your a fucking monkey if you listen to him. Now heres a good religion. Jedi. This is from everyone putting jedi on the census form in 2001. wise words yoda. wise words.
