'The Ace of Spades' screen print

The 'Ace of Spades' is a limited edition screen-print based on an illustration I did earlier this year. My original source of inspiration was the Motorhead song of the same name but I ended up veering into darker more Satanic realms. It was inked in a couple of long and intense sessions soundtracked by the likes of Om, Sleep, Sunn O))) and Black Sabbath which probably explains a little as to how it turned out.

 Each print is a hand-pulled two coloured screen-print - silver and black - on heavy weight paper measuring 50cm x 70cm. The print run is just 18 and each one is numbered with a signature. Each print will vary ever-so-slightly as I work from a fairly lo-fi printing set up but this adds to the charm of each piece.

 The photos don't really do it justice; the silver looks fucking amazing!…/211965040/ace-of-spades-limited-edit…

'Beautiful Girls' screenprint

Beautiful Girls is a limited edition screen-print based on an illustration I was commissioned to create inspired by a poetry collection of the same name by Melissa Lee-Houghton for Inpress books.  It's available to buy here

'... and from where they are sat they can see
the whole world, the whole night,
the whole sky rippling out from behind their heads:
stars, dynamite light, dripping with explosions...'

It's a three colour hand-pulled screenprint limited to a run of 15 printed on heavy-weight A3 (42x29.7cm) white paper.

Rian Johnson illustration

Little White Lies asked me to do an illustration of Rian Johnson to accompany a quote by him for their new book 'What I Love About Movies'.  His quote focused on the transformative experience of sitting in a cinema so I placed him in 'Brick' and had the audience made up of key characters from his movies.

The books available to buy here and features a whole load of amazing illustrators.  I'm hoping they put out another edition and I get to draw Alejandro Jodorowsky!

Horror at the Horniman

I hosted a Puck Collective drawing club at the Horniman Museum on Sunday called 'Horror at the Horniman'.  Obviously.  We met, drew a bunch of weird stuff, did a show-and-tell at the nearest pub and finished the afternoon better people.  It was fun.  Thanks to everyone that turned up.  More soon.
