1001 Nights print

-
This is the drawing I did for Studio Amour for the 1001 Nights show. They produced 25 of them on canvas at A3 size. I tried to base it a little on the original stories style.

Well not so much on the chaos, sorted my computer out which was great as it was almost giving up on starting to do photoshop stuff. Also made this which is pushing in a strange direction. The lettering itself is not so good, but I am liking the movement and style of the shapes.

Алина Орлова. Сногсшибательная Cчиталочка

-
I was at Eurocultured in Manchester last weekend, which was mental, painting with some great artists and occasionally listening to some music. The bar we were painting had a gig with Alina Orlova playing, her voice is incredible and made a nice change from the dubstep that was on for 9 hours beside my ears.

Print Screenin


-
As an end to the show at The Henderson Gallery, I made some prints, 3 in total, they are on sale at the gallery and I think will be on their site too.
As I was a little bit rusty at screenprinting the editions are small. Will post more pics soon.

Home of the Skulls

-
The blog Bones and Skulls covers everything skeleton related, with doing the Burns exhibition recently I've been drawing some skulls a bit more, I can see why people like them. I suppose we all have a one inside us just waiting to get out, eventually! Check out the blog.

Made with letter shapes and other hand-drawn elements.

Been messing a bit more with Alchemy, it definitely is great for making shapes, this was taken into photoshop to be coloured. I now have a million ideas for the show with Lyken in June, it will be mainly lettering and type based as a change, but so far we are only in the sketching stages, I think it will be fun, with hopefully some special colabos.

Here's the warm summer version of the earlier post. Bit of a new style for speed as taking two days for a drawing for a club flyer isn't an option anymore.

1001 Nights - Studio Amour

-
The folks at Studio Amour have a show opening in Bristol on Friday Night, I have a print they made in the show, which I'm gutted I can't get to, the line up is super good. The print is an edition of only 25, priced incredibly cheaply at £25, one colour on canvas. Check out the Studio Amour site for more details.

AOS Worldwide!


-
On a recent trip to Berlin/Munich I was put down in the Army Of Snipers Crew, which was a bonus, I'd been in touch with the ever busy Hawaiian Woeski for many years so it was good to finally meet up and paint. Cheers to Marco for making the whole thing possible, with the Intoxicated Demons show. ID have an Armsrock opening on Friday too.
-
I'll try and put up some pics of the show in Munich, it was super inspiring to meet and paint with so many people.

Koiwa Sleepy Nights

Been working on a flyer, which was meant to look summer style and somehow made this.
Quite a few years ago, on holiday, I stayed in Koiwa, the streets were quite narrow and cluttered, a feast for the eyes. Will post the final flyer too, as it will be in a different atmosphere.

Silhouetted letters

-
Been playing with a new program for roughing out ideas, producing images a bit different from my usual work I think, still trying to get into the style, but it's good to loosen up and start drawing with them.

Construction! HA! Should be more like demolition, I'm so fucking slow at updating anything, I'll be dead before long and nowt will have changed... This was a draft I got bored of, probably too complex to actually view the work much. The studio version here, which I think works better will be closer to the navigation.
You can't really see it from this, but the effect is like a selfdrawing vector shape, but very fluid, like handwriting.
Just another avenue of timewasting I've been playing with...
