I have been asked by THE LINCOLN CENTRE, New York to create their artwork for this years LINCOLN CENTRE OUT OF DOORS FESTIVAL 2015. A pretty amazing opportunity! My task was to create an artwork that represented the festival, encapsulating Music, Dance and performing arts, with it’s very broad ethnicity. Below is the web banner which is a slice of the much bigger main image. The main image will be on the front of the programmes and on a 5o foot banner on the corner of Broadway and Columbus avenue! Anyway, more updates and images on this soon. Lincoln Centre Out of Doors.

HOT RUM COW!

I loved doing this commission for HOT RUM COW, based in Edinburgh. It’s all about my favourite drink – Rum! The particular article I illustrated is about the links between Rm, Reggae and the Jamaican ghosts, known as Duppies. It’s a colourful and tropical feeling piece, with insights into the music and the eccentric Lee Perry! Read…

First Illustration for RHS Gardens

HH Wakey-Wakey Wildlife Poster2

A great job for RHS Gardens through Premm design, working on a series of posters for Children’s events in the RHS gardens all through the year. This has been really good fun to do and slightly different subject matter than usual, great working with Premm design who very kindly wanted to work with me on this, bringing me in on the pitch stage of the job and luckily we won the job! Below is the winter poster…more to come!RHS_Wakey-Wakey-Wildlife

Well, it’s this time of year again, which allows me to get creative with my fifth Mexican Ball and the POSTER! My favourite bit, quite pleased with this one, although it is a bit busy, I think it kinda works, it’s nice to have a female skull for a change, which allows me to have a lot more fun being decorative! More info: www.rambunctioussocialclub.com I actually ended up doing two posters, one for friends ‘Baila La Cumbia’ in Bristol. See second below.

PANAMA CARDOON ALBUM COVER
UnknownMarch 2014 – Current work includes collaboration with Carnibal records, starting with Panama Cardoon’s album cover, that’s a s much as I can say so far, the album is due for a release on April 22nd, preview below….exciting stuff!!

I loved working on the album cover, I’ve always DJ-ed with a lot of Panama Cardoon’s tunes, always loved them! So it was great to hear he was into my illustrations, it was like a mutual appreciation! Perfect exchange!

HUNTING OF THE SNARK

Fifth in my ‘Snark’ series…..

“As to temper the Jubjub’s a desperate bird,
   Since it lives in perpetual passion:
Its taste in costume is entirely absurd—
   It is ages ahead of the fashion:

Fourth in my series of ‘Snark’ doodles

“The Bellman himself they all praised to the skies –
Such a carriage, such ease and such grace!
Such solemnity, too! One could see he was wise,
The moment one looked in his face! ”

snark4_web

Third in my ‘Snark’ doodles

“Without rest or pause — while those frumious jaws
Went savagely snapping around –
He skipped and he hopped, and he floundered and flopped,
Till fainting he fell to the ground.”

snark3_web

Second in my ‘Snark’ doodles…..

“They roused him with muffins — they roused him with ice – 
They roused him with mustard and cress — “

THE OFRENDA TREE

This specially designed from pen and paper to full blown interactive piece of work in the foyer of the EXETER PHOENIX. Designed for my MEXICAN NIGHT OF THE DEAD FIESTA/BALL as RAMBUNCTIOUS SOCIAL CLUB. The aim behind the tree is for people/the public to write messages to those they have lost on specially designed flowers, which hang on the tree branches. This was wholly embraced by the public and it was very touching to see the tree laden with messages to those lost, all in all, a success. You can see the stages of making below. The tree needed to be practical and safe to sit in the public space as well as durable. Any interests in set- building commissions please get in touch with me.
