San Francisco's DEAD TO ME are coming to town in April we're putting them on in swansea so i knocked up a flyer and printed a bunch out, if you'd like one i'm sure they'll be loads on the floor after the mighty TAINT send off show tonight - cutting flyers out in the shape of a coffin takes time people.
DEAD TO ME rule so write the date in your calendar, it will be awesome!
i also drew a freaky looking bat for OK PILOT to use at their discretion;
i think that they're going to be featured on patches.
Every chance i've had to hit the dark room or the neg scanners in uni has been blundered, the most recent attempt was snowed off! i have a whole load of photos to sort out, if i do ever get round it then i'll upload some of them.
Thanks for looking

i'm up way too late tonight, my sleep patterns have gone do lally. i've been working on a poster for The Arteries/Astpai Eastern European 'AA/DC' tour that is happening throughout the bone chilling month of January, i'm really excited to visit a whole bunch of places that i've never been before, places like; Russia, Romania, Latvia and Transylvania! But... I am definitely not excited about the temperature!
anyways, this here design will be screen printed on to some fancy paper in time for all that;

so it's been a long long while since i updated this thing.
i've been away with The Arteries for the last few months, as a result my brain has turned to spam and my creativity seems to be either stuck in a part of the spam that isn't accessible right now or just at an all time low. despite this, there is no time for fucking around! i have a huge list of design work to do and i have nearly 10 films to process and sort through. i will try my best to upload worthwhile images as and when i get things done...
here his what will soon become the cover art for the new SSSSNAKES LP
my friend Hamish Adams has written a highly entertaining tour diary, it's a real good read, you can pick it up right here.
thanks for looking!

the last real project that i worked on was the artwork for the new arteries record 'Dead Sea'
the album is initially coming out on CD via SWFU and Specialist Subject Records and is later going to be released on LP by Florida's Paper + Plastic.
here are all the bits laid out for the cd digi package;
and here is the layout for the insert/pull out poster;
you can pre order the CD and get a cool looking t shirt as well as the mp3s from Specialist Subject Record right now, just click here!
i'm going on tour next week and i'm planning to shoot millions of photos to make up for a huge lack of camera action. it's going to be a while before i get shit processed and scanned but when i get round to it i will upload some images and hopefully make some sort of documentary photo zine also.
just watch this space i guess...
but don't hold your breath as you will definitely end up dead :(

a while ago i messed up a design for a band called Banquets by spelling their name wrong and all sorts...
A good buddy of mine named PJ saw the failed attempt and liked where it was going and asked if could make it into a shirt design for him to use as merch at Rad Fest in N.Carolina which he will be playing (will a full backing band named, 'some mother fuckers') later this month.
this is what i came up with;
PJ is an awesome dude and a really talented song writer, check him out and go see him play wherever you can!
hey ho! lets go!
