So I've sort of neglected this blog of late, had a lot of things going on including setting up a blog for Bake, on top of that I've been pretty busy doing new designs for tees as well as a couple of other small briefs that I've had on the go. One of the finished projects that I have been most happy with was this little logo and branding I've put together for a new Ice Hockey goaltending academy and database.

Welcome to Weston

For the final outcome of a project based on Weston Supermare I did a little personal investigation into old seaside signage, and how it has become so iconic. My main focus was on old fashioned fish and chip shop signs. I wanted to explore whether it was the style or content of the signs that made them so iconic, i.e. whether people appreciate the design of them, or whether people just appreciate fish and chips.

I basically played around with loads of different combinations of words that I could apply this style to, so really anything with an 'and'. Scampi and Lemon, Batman and Robin, Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrells. I tried around 90 combinations before I was satisfied with my conclusion.

I personally came to the conclusion that the style of the signs was what made them so iconic. No matter what meaningless pairing i applied the style to each one looked great.

The outcome was presented as a 100 page perfect bound book, that I bound myself.

During the last term i have been creating a book based on the theme of Forward/Rewind.
My project was based around Salvation Army brass bands and more specifically around my family's history within them.
When I started the project my knowledge of our family history was somewhat limited, but during the project I have developed a greater understanding of the subject, and become increasingly proud as the subject has gone on.
The final outcome is a 56 page perfect bound book, with a screen printed cover. Accompanying the book is a set of three posters which display through the means of a family tree, all the members of my family who have been members of the Salvation Army throughout the years.

144 colours

I'm not the biggest fan of the visuals in this piece but the amount of skill, dedication and patience that must have gone into making it is incredible.

Robert Williams announces the release of a print long rumored to be a myth. “A nearly impossible feat of modern printmaking; 144 Colors, Hand-Pulled, Hand-Separated Serigraph Edition. An incredibly exact reproduction for one of the greatest artists of our time. This edition began production in 1992 and took 2 full years to complete. The prints were created entirely by using traditional techniques of hand-separating the colors and hand-pulling the paper, one color, one sheet at a time. 25,000 Pulls and every one of them is in absolute perfect registration!!! A true marvel of modern printmaking for one of the world’s greatest artists ever!!!” Available at Jetset Graffitibeginning at noon on Friday, March 12. Limited to 125 prints.

"You're really good"


It's kind of hard to explain.

It's more than just getting on.
It's like being on somebodies level.
Getting them.
Making them happy.
But it's like more than happiness.
It's just really good.

I think both of these boys get given a bit of a hard time sometimes.
But within their respective fields, they are both at the top of their game.
Talent on talent.

The winter olympics finished yesterday, and they probably couldn't have ended better.
Intense rivalry, intense atmosphere, intense match, intense celebrations.


Tablet training.
Took some notes and guidance, and boshed this out.
It's not an original illustration, just a copy and play on the old Atlanta Braves logo.
