"Inherent Vice"


I seemed to have been looking into Joaquin Phoenix's curly dark locks a lot this year.. his face seems warmly familiar.. News of the latest release by director Paul Thomas Anderson's is always exciting.  To then be commissioned by Sight&Sound, magazine for the BFI, to create a cover for his recent masterpiece.. well it must be Christmas, ; ) !  Under the guise of Art Director Chris Brawn I delivered the above for their January issue.

B Ü M S


Silkscreen will always be my operating mode of choice. But now the evenings are dark-er for long-er, I thought it a good opportunity to learn another little chunk of Photoshop.  A couple of bite size mouthfuls in & this popped up on my screen.  'Büms' is a recent discard for my latest collection for Stüssy.  All created on the pooter.. !

'Ce Parfum.. ?'


Eric Pillault worked his french magic on me once again with this unusual still life commission for 'Le Monde'.  My challenge this time.. abstracted perfume bottles.  I loved every minute of it .. ; )

'Allman Brothers Band'

Art Director, Greg Mollica @ Random House USA.
(Above, alternate silkscreened cover option)

Released by Random House New York this week is Galadrielle Allman's poignant memoir of her father Duane, founder of the legendary 'Allman Brothers Band'.  Further investigations revealed that before their band formed, Duane was 'FAME Studios', (located in Muscle Shoals, Alabama) primary session guitarist.. If you didn't catch the 'Muscle Shoals' documentary aired earlier this year you missed out on a historical musical feast.  Its still available here though.. 


I created a third print, shown above, as a possible idea for the back of the jacket.. it wasn't employed by the end though, ; (
This aside it was a most enjoyable book jacket to work on.

"Ageing disgracefully" .. ( Hell yeah! )


My first editorial commission for long term inspirational publication Elle Decoration.
