The rider I drew is Mike “Hucker”Clark, from a photo reference by Jason Colledge fittingly taken at Decoy Jam last year.
The latest advert I did for Profile Racing is out in the BMX Magazines and features Mark Mulville and his signature Natural Camo colour way hubs.
Congratulations to Mark for his new role at Profile as the Social Media Czar.

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!
