I’d be more than happy to get it back here and keep it but if you’re interested in buying it, check it out.
Thanks to the Pure Sludge / Heavy Heads dudes.
I updated the portfolio pages a little bit today, been a bit too busy to stay on top of it. A new site is overdue too so I’d best get things in order for an update. Mostly Folklore Brand additions.
I recently worked with Matt Coplon to draw up a title for his book “Collapsing into the Whatever” as well as a series title and, reverse and spine. Its out now in print, available in the USA from Profile Racing (his day job), and soon to be available from Folklore Brand in the UK / Europe (my non day job). I’ll post again when they land on our shores sometime in the next couple of weeks. Matt is a great writer amongst many other things (BMX rider, Musician, manager). Here’s what he had to say about the book…
“Collapsing into the Whatever started out as a pipe dream. A blog post. That turned into two. That soon tripled.
16 months later, I had compiled almost 45 short non-fiction vignettes: of false possession, electricity poaching, of run-ins with satanists, urban myth, of travels through Europe within the 90′s punk scene, stories of the incredibly mundane, stories of absolute absurdity, of life and death in Tampa.
Today, almost three years down the creative road, the blog morphed from the digital ether into a 206 page, physical, printed book.”
Here’s Matt’s celebratory edit to go with its launch!
Some of the recent ads I’ve put together for the ever awesome Profile Racing. Thanks for the great photos to work with guys.
I’ve just painted and shipped this Biltwell 3/4 helmet off to the Pure Sludge “Heavy Heads” show in Lancaster USA. It’ll be on show for 1 night only (27th September). Very proud and humble to be invited to participate in the show. Thanks!
The piece is my rendering / interpretation of a very powerful image of the Christmas Truce in WW1. Its an image I’ve been meaning to pay my respects to for some time so I’m glad I got to do it for this show. Its hand painted with enamel, my first effort at drawing and painting on a spherical object! Adorned with Folklore Brand motives too (My other brand)!
Red Bull commissioned me to design a hand drawn logo for this year’s Quater Master BMX comp / event in Wales which is happening this week.
The brainchild of Seb Keep, the team build a massive quarter set up in a welsh quarry to blast some airs. Check out the Red Bull website for more details and media. Should be epic.
Proud to be involved. Thanks guys.
Had the privilege to visit the home / studio / idyll of artist Heather Jansch and her musician husband Bert yesterday. So inspiring. The driftwood sculptures speak for themselves. We came away dreaming of working and living in a woodland valley too. Inspired.
Here’s the poster I did for this years Decoy Jam. Its this weekend 6th September 2014 at Decoy Trails, Devon UK. Should be rad, check out that rider list + I should say, tonnes of rad locals!
