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.
Here is the first of two images designed specifically for all you poncey iPhone and iPod touch users out there… they should also be available on Poolga soon, alongside many other fine examples. You can show it off through the layers of grease and fingerprints.
Here’s the second image for all you iPhone and iPod touch users, if you save the large image (click on the title of this blog post to see it) and sync it through iTunes, it can greet you each time you go to text your mum or watch that SFW XXX on YouTube.
Today sees the arrival of The Joyful Bewilderment – An International Group Exhibition. It’s running from the 2nd of October to the 27th, at Rough Trade East (just off Brick Lane, London). This is a cleaned-up version of my piece, in the respect that the original is hand-drawn, not pornographic or anything. DO come along, it promises much, and will deliver.
Aside from this drawing stuff, I’m in a band called Esiotrot. We’re due to release a real-life vinyl record soon, and here’s the label. So, if you download it illegally, you can print this out and stick it on your iPod. Also: we’re playing at Barden’s Boudoir, Dalston on October 17th with Darren Hayman. Come on down!
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.
When I were a kid, all we had to read were the Yellow Pages. Now kids big and small can enjoy the delights of Anorak magazine, and I’m lucky enough to have illustrated a story for it. Big thanks to Cathy Olmedillas and Supermundane!
My good friends over at Crayonlegs are producing a awesome new ‘zine by the name of Tight Fit. The first installment is on the subject of facial hair, and it’s got some great contributors like Marcus Oakley and Craig Atkinson. I’ve gone and lowered the tone. I couldn’t help it.
Thanks to YCN and Intercity I received a free bottle of rum. All I had to do was do something with it, apart from drinking it. It’s almost like giving a tramp a bottle of cider in exchange for his coat.
So, here’s my interpretation of the Havana rum bottle, due for exhibit on the 23rd of July at the Dray Walk Gallery off Brick Lane. Do go! There will be more rum.
