The guys at Union asked me if I could so some 'biomech' stuff for them. Im not really into to but remembered how much I love Hardware (one of my recommended films) so jumped at the chance of doing this for the guys. I'd love to work with them more in the future. I love their stuff: https://soundcloud.com/unionrecs
I recently had the brief to draw a nice pic of the head of Medusa. If you didn't know the real story of Medusa its one of disgusting behavior by the gods; caught being raped by Poseidon, Athena changed her into a horrific creature so ugly she would turn men into stone by her gaze alone. Gods have never been kind or wise. Ive seen many a picture of Medusa but I always wondered whilst not directly looking how a clean cut was achieved, by luck maybe?

It is said that Lilith was created at the same time as Adam like an equal, unlike Eve who was made from Adams rib. Lilith refused to be subservient to Adam because she was a strong and proud women. God sent angels to capture her and force her back into the garden of Eden. She refused and vowed her revenge. It is said that you can hear Lilith cries at night, in the wind and in the cries of the animals in the dark. Lilith was also thought to mean 'Owl'.

I had another chance by the Bottleneck Gallery to produce a piece on the only zombie film I rate by any standards; Return of the Living Dead. I thought about making a montage as most artists do of a film, or picking out a singular item or character or scene as I like to do, but I thought about what was it that haunted my mind and it was finally the video case in the shop that stayed with me all those years: a parody, a homage, I don't care what you want to call it or what I need to call it- I was just happy to do it.

I love working with Disturbia they always let me do what I want and get the best out of me. Its easy drawing something someone suggests and sometimes boring, but try drawing for yourself and it gets serious and your head is on the block. I think Frank has realised this and is using it to get the best stuff out of me. I have been working on this idea for over a year or so now and was happy Frank let me do it, not many clients are eager to do something new. Thanks Frank
A recent drawing I did for a client released as a limited edition 2 colour poster. I love taking time away from the computer to make these posters, something physical to smell and taste and hold and its great to see your own work printed as I so rarely get to see any of my work printed. All posters are sold out now- I usually put a few APs out now and then if there are any available though.
Its been a long while since working with Greg and jumped at the chance to do so. Gregs line Miles To Go is one of the best lines out there for uncompromised ethos and vision; his love of reading is unparallelled, maybe by only those I do not know. Greg asked me to pick some of my favourite books so I chose: Notes From The House Of the Dead (which is my own bastardized version of the many names its been published as) by Fyodor Dostoevsky and The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka which I have to admit is a book I have started many many times and never finished mainly to it being too depressing for me. Either way go visit Miles To Go for some amazing designs by some amazing artists based on some great reads: Miles To Go
Mycelia approached me to do a 'space scene' and I loved the idea. Having already tackled it in a study I did both for a screen printing exercise and Sonisphere festival I felt I would like to revisit the idea. Its a pretty popular idea but that should never stop you from doing anything, ask Johnny Cash (NINs Hurt). I loved using a famous and much loved photo as a reference and obvious nod then putting a GM skull inside, and a big thrill using all those space brushes I had been saving for years.
As I set to work on the last of the new Disturbia range I realise I have yet to post out last seasons work. I love working with these guys and you are probably sick of hearing me say it, but tough. I love Franks ideas and how he allows me to get on with it, I always seem to do some of my best work for him.
I love this one- Disturbia are well know for 'Subverting popular culture', and with this piece Frank send me a clip of a music video he loved from a while back of this skull pilot. This pilot though is on a mission from logic and religion is trying to thwart his efforts!!
Its been a long time since I took pen to paper. A while back I found this Chinese book with all the pages falling out, the book fascinated me and I considered it for a long time. I decided to stain the pages and see if I could draw on then. With a chai tea and a fine line pen I have been enjoying making this small pictures for a few months now. Here is just one of them, the rest can be found in the store.
Had an email from a great band in Jo-Burg a while back to create an album cover, After a few discussions we arrived at something that wasnt so 'city' as we thought this may be too obvious, but we still put the Jo-burg skyline in the background and talked about the animals in Africa. Good guys and great band. The spaces on the cover are for more text which we put on later.

The new Disturbia range is out and I suggest you head on over and see what they have- they have a lot! The girls vests are unreal!!! For this piece Frank wanted a Samurai, having already done a few this time I wanted it to be more 'Blade Runnery' and futuristic/neon..ish...The writing at the bottom does indeed say 'Disturbia'.
This is my depiction of the brief "Grim Reaper". I like to imagine things aren't always what you expect them to be. I imagine the grim reaper is a very pained person that doesn't really have any concept of death and death is not his doing but rather his to deal with. It probably upsets him each single time.
The guys of Arusha Accord asked me to draw my idea of 'a fallen king'. I loved the idea and wanted to do something big bold and simple, but do it well. Originally we intended to give the guy rings on his fingers but decided that as I love doing hands, the hands looked to gnarly to cover up. This is King of the Rotten.
