Now Then Magazine July Issue

I've been humbled this month with an interview and feature in Now Then Magazine, a popular free publication based in the heart of Sheffield. They regularly feature artists as their main angle and they use up many pages with artwork from the featured artist, I've kept copies as collectables from certain artists features such as Nick Deakin and Lord Bunn in the past.

Copies of the magazine are free and can be found in most independent bars and boutiques around Sheffield!

Hey Sholay

Sheffield based band, Hey Sholay have been making waves in the local scene as well as winning a poll with the NME to win a gig slot at this years EXIT fest in Serbia. I'm a big fan of their music with their galloping drum beats and distorted guitars and catchy melodies. Listening to their music paints a picture in my head of how I'd approach their artwork, even though two members of the band look after the artwork which is very fine art touching on illustrative angles.

Here I wanted to play with my use of water colour textures and a bit of linear pencil drawing, I had a lot of fun working in this, just purely because it's been ages since I've worked on any personal work.

Tramlines Hantu Collective Merch 2011

Heres the the design I've submitted for this years Tramlines Festival merchandise, and I'm pretty happy with it. I wanted to capture the fun and explosive vibe that's in the city for that one summer weekend a year. I love Tramlines as it transforms the city and theres always good bands to watch.

I'm happy with this collaboration between Hantu Collective and Frooly, both Sheffield based creative businesses and hopefully we'll be able to work on next years festival merch... providing they go down well this year. Hint hint.
