'The Longshot'

A silkscreen collage saw its way to becoming the latest album cover for Cambridge based folksters Megson. Due for release on June 7th and nominated for the second year running for the BBC Folk Awards, they are most definitely worth a listen.

Faulty Wiring...

I was disappointed this week to be informed an illustration hot off the press for Wired magazine was to be dropped minutes later. Editorial pieces are often a struggle for me due to the nature of the silkscreen technique. It doesn't lend itself to quick alterations, the replacement of images, re-sizing etc. I really thought I'd cracked it for this brief and had thoroughly enjoyed creating the brain with all it's little cogs.

Me & Mat Maitland

Here's a flashy little pack shot of the finished Campaign. It was a joy to be back in the co-pilot seat with Art Director Mat Maitland, a very competent illustrator in his own right. Check out his own stunning portfolio here...

The lovely 'Miss Kate Nash'

"My Best Friend is You", Kate Nash's second album is released this Monday. It can feel like a life time to wait for your artwork to finally adorn the finished product. Today I was unexpectedly chuffed to see a big ad for it on the back of Time Out Magazine whilst popping out for a coffee. Kate and her 'girls' have been a complete joy to work with... I wish I'd have been that savvy at twenty two. Go kate! X
