Crafty Fox Peckham

I'll be at Crafty Fox this Sunday in Peckham selling my wares and being generally very festive.  More details here.  I'll have a bunch of prints - some exclusives - and many cheaper than in my web shop.

The first person to smuggle me in a can of stella can have a boozy Robin card for free too (saving you a whole two pounds!).  


'What a beautiful way to die - as a falling star' screenprint for Gallery 1988

I've got a new screenprint in the Gallery 1988 group show Crazy for Cult 8 in LA.  'What a beautiful way to die - as a falling star' is a three colour print inspired by the John Carpenter movie 'Dark Star' which coincidentally is being screened at the BFI in the next few weeks as part of the 'Sci Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder' season.  I've been luck enough to see 2001 and Alien there already and Dark Star is equally as good.  Well maybe not quite but I've loved it since I was a teenager (which is more than can be said about the other two; way too slow for the 15 year old me...) so Pinback et al have a special place in my heart.  

So if you're in LA go to the exhibition.  And if you're in London go see Dark Star on the big screen and marvel at the joyous special effects and beards.

'Daughter of the Sun' limited edition print

My new screenprint for the London Illustration Fair is available to buy now from my shop. The piece is loosely inspired by elements of Folklore, Paganism, femininity, astrology and the Sharon Tandy song of the same name (which you should all listen to immediately if not sooner because it's a fucking beast).


Postal dates for Christmas are getting tight now too so if you're in the US don't hang around as tomorrow is the final day to ship for prints to arrive before Christmas. 

I'm selling prints and original artwork at Crafty Fox this Sunday as well; pop by and say hello!

Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland asked me to contribute some original artwork for an online auction of postcards to raise money for their cause and this is the piece I sent them.  All the work is online here and you can bid for each piece by following the guidelines on the website.

'Dance Dance Dance' was drawn in Indian ink and watercolours.

'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!
