'The Art of Lost Words'

'Text/Gallery' are curating an exhibition on behalf of the National Literacy Trust entitled 'the art of lost words' ...
"What happens to forgotten words - chucked in language's landfill while the world sweeps on in pursuit of new phrases? For the space of one week they'll be exhumed and recycled into objects of beauty by invited designers and illustrators".
Work will be sold as one-off originals or limited editions at the discretion of the contributor, and proceeds will go towards the National Literacy Trust, helping to enable disadvantaged children to choose and keep free books.
The Exhibition runs from 5th - 10th March at 'The German Gym', Pancras Road, NW1 2TB.
Come down and find out what my word is!

Tappin Gofton

It was so exciting to see that Mark & Simon have their new website up and running.
I've collaborated with them for many years and have been patiently waiting for this moment, all their wonderful achievements viewable at the click of a finger. One really is spoilt for choice, well done Tappin Gofton.
I've selfishly chosen two pages to show you, featuring my work! I feel some of my best work has been with them so it seemed apt ... and their photography is much more beautiful than my quick digital snaps.

'Semi-Permanent' 3 & 4th April 2009

I couldn't believe my luck when I was invited to be part of 'Semi-Permanent', an annual Design conference held in Sydney, Australia. My initial thoughts of sunshine, open space and the great outdoors, (especially after our previous two British summers) quickly diminished when they turned towards thoughts of public speaking in a large auditorium! However, not one to miss out on such an amazing window of opportunity, I will be heading off for my antipodean adventure towards the end of March. There are guest speakers from around the globe, check online for more information,

'Sound & Vision 2009'

'Sound & Vision' 2009 has arrived, once again hosted at Abbey Road Studios. Myself and Tommy Penton have donated original artworks, all of which can be viewed along with others online.
This year for the first time, I have donated a piece of artwork made for a Chemical Brothers campaign. It's a one-off silkscreen print used as sleeve artwork for their album 'We Are The Night'. There's still a chance to win tickets for the evening where Paul Weller and Stereophonics will play live and plenty of champagne floats about. All of this in aid of an excellent cause that I imagine has affected us all in one way or another in our own lives.
