With this issue of Plan B, I was asked to illustrate the Urbanisme column. Living in Hackney and being brought-up in Bognor Regis gives me an almost unparalleled insight into such things. Wonder at the results!

To break with tradition, here’s an illustration for the magazine Plan B. I’m not really sure what it’s all about, but apparently it’s got something to do with music, and this is for an article about a record label called Holy Roar.
Another new year arrives, and with it comes a new illustration for the awesome Plan B. This time, it accompanies an article that challenges the 4/4 time signature so rife in todays music. Personally, I don’t mind as long as I can whistle it.
My first ever illustration for Plan B was in the Singles Club section back in 2006, and now I’m back in it with this selection of three record sleeve imaginings. From top to bottom: The Bug – Flying, Pivot – O Soundtrack My Heart, and Crazy Cousinz – Bongo Jam.
You might just see this picture on the literature pages of Dazed shortly, with thanks to Sarah Fakray. It’s intended to represent Andri Snær Magnason and the impact of aluminium smelters on Iceland’s environment. Whether it does or not is anyone’s guess.
This is my submission for a recent open brief from Amelia’s Magazine… robots picking lightbulb fruit from trees that grow out of buildings. With hover boards and jet packs. it’s quite clearly the most perfect future imaginable. Duh.

I’ve illustrated a Boredoms album review for Plan B before, but this time I got neon and gradient fill all over it. Expect some updates to the site perdy soon, possibly including a background that doesn’t induce epileptic seizures. Possibly.
So, to accompany this new-fangled blog o’ mine I’ve also entered new illustrative territory – the gradient fill. Please, reserve your judgement until you’ve seen it in all it’s bigness (click click)… Once again, it’s for the wonderful Plan B Magazine and is to accompany a review of Talib Kweli’s album Ear Drum.
Yup, that’s right. That’s another incomprehensible fine mess I’ve got myself into. I’m bringing back the brown. See it in the June issue, it’s all about the OPTIMO.
