Ledgard Jepson Wall Art...

I was at it again, this time Sheffield based graphic design agency Ledgard Jepson asked me to spruce up one of their main walls as they're going for a fresh look for the new year. You know me, I love ruining white walls... More photos and a video hopefully to follow and uploaded to their website and mine.

Tinsley Towers Illustration


If you are a Yorkshire person or hail from Sheffield you'd know that last year was the historic event of the Tinsley Towers being demolished.

An upcoming Arts & Newspaper project in Sheffield asked me to provide an illustration based around a "new change / fresh start" concept. I felt that the coming down of the towers might be interesting as people were powerless to stop its destruction but it posed a fresh start for the new decade. Maybe a hint of things to come? You never know.

Inspired T-shirt Designs from Threadless

Here's a pick of some of the best designs for t-shirts I've noticed on Threadless.com
The good thing about some of these designs is that you can get sucked into the little worlds they're illustrated around. My favourites is the Black Triangle and the Umbrella lady.

Sketchy

It's been ages since I've had a chance to doodle in my sketch book, I've forgotton how relaxing it can be.

Most of my best work has come from sketches I've forgotton about in random pages of my books. I guess it can take time for basic ideas to really mature into something usable in the future. I also assume people who hoarde things wait for the day they can use their hoardings. Very understandable really.

Collage Inspired



I've been getting into some new music (or new to me) and Passion Pit has to be one of those acts I'll want to see live and play over and over again. I found one of their videos online on youtube and its brilliant, the analogue feel and jitter to the images reminded me of Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer video. Click here to have a gander at what I'm talking about!
