Recently I've been getting into making flyers in a knock 'em up fashion using the xerox machines at Staples. Scanners and Photoshop have made my brain and fingers lazy. When I'd help put on gigs with friends as a snotty teenager we used to just rock up to the copying machines with Thrasher magazines, pens and scissors and make the flyers on the spot, they always looked cool and it was fun!
 For some reason I'm really into doing things that way again. Maybe it's nostalgia. 
The coolest thing about making flyers in the dreaded StaplesOfficeSupplySuperStore is that they have everything you need right there and if you act like you know what you're doing you don't have to pay for ANY of the supplies that you use - Take That!

Here are some i made earlier;
i've posted this one before... here it is again

I made a t shirt design for my friends in ASTPAI
They are a really kick ass band, they are on tour in April, if you get a chance then go and see them play, they rule!
They're playing at Mozart's in Swansea with the all mighty NOZZLE on april 14th. i'm going to staples to make a poster for it tomorrow...

I also doodled on some 7" sleeves for my friends in THE COMPUTERS

They are releasing a single and getting friends of theirs to customise each sleeve so that they are all individual. Sounds like a pretty cool idea!
 I thought it would be good to spread one design across all 4 sleeves that i was given.

is this normal?


Before embarking on a 5 week tour, mainly around the treacherous and frozen landscape of eastern europe, my friend Rhys Polopee and I printed a load of A2 posters to sell at the shows...

There are still a few prints left after the tour. you can buy them HERE!

We also printed a load of these crusty back patches but there aren't ant left.
I think Polopee might print some more when he gets a chance. At least in time for our next Arteries tour.

thanks for looking
