It’s flipping freezing out there at the moment, but has that stopped me?

Hell no!

My paint stained fingers have taking such a cold bashing in the last five days and they shall continue to do so until the advent is up. So here are the first few and expect to see more. Every day. Watch this space….

I must start by apologising for my horrendous lack of posts in recent weeks. I have been up to my eyeballs in projects and organising stuff that i just haven’t had the time to even blink at my wordpress.

 

So, SORRY!!

Don’t Badger the Badgers…

Badgers, Community

Once again, I am posting about the Badger Cull debate. The petition is still out there and needs to be signed. An amazing response so far with 156,000 signatures, however anyone that believes this is wrong and hasn’t signed needs to do so. Sign here

The good news is that this is now due for debate in Parliament, but it aint over yet.

In other Stop the Cull news there is a Love the Badger flash mob dance this weekend in Parliament Square from 2pm and Trafalgar Square from 3.30pm on Sunday the 21st October. Organised by the great folks at Artful Badger. More info here – ShnufleShnuffle.

And finally…My image of the Badgerfaced Blues that i painted on a shutter in Brighton as my response to the proposed cull was reposted on the RSPCA official facebook page and got nearly 900 likes. Very proud of that.

Playgroup Festival wall Timelapse…

Commissions, Festivals, Projects, Walls

Well, I tell ya, I must have been snoozing as I totally missed out on posting this bit of timelapse that POOKA did for Playgroup Festival this year. Again, the Festival was an awesome one, with a fantastic line up and amazing people to boot.

Here is the vid…Enjoy.

The title track is ‘The Entrance’ by Boycom

Prince Fatty versus the Drunken Gambler

Commissions, Community, Projects, Walls

As the summer was drawing to a close and the weather was still fine, I managed to fit in a little mural for Prince Fatty’s new album release – Prince Fatty Versus the Drunken Gambler.

Prince Fatty asked me to recreate the album artwork, originally drawn by famous illustrator JAKe, on a big wall in Brighton. The image shows Fatty, Holie Cook and Horseman ready to battle na Kung Fu stylie.

This was another challenging commission, as I am so used to drawing my own artwork, and it took a day just to get the original sketch to how it should look.

I was happy with the end result and more importantly, Fatty was over the moon.

There is a time lapse of the piece being painted on the way.

The album is out now on Mr Bongo.

Now hear dis…

GOBI – AKA the Mongolian barbeque

Commissions, Projects, Walls

This project was from last year and I’m only just getting around to posting the pics.

Gobi is a Mongolian barbeque restaurant in Brighton. I was asked to come in and brighten up the cloakroom.

The designs are not my own work, but the work of a Mongolian artist named G.Batchuluun.

Both pieces are from batik style paintings. The first depicting the goddess of Art ‘Yanjinlkham’ and the second depicting Ghengis Khan. Link to these images here – Mongolian Shop

It was interesting to paint in this style as they have a slightly buddhist art style to them. Something that I felt that I explored a little bit more on my travels in India a couple of months after this.

Playgroup Festival 2012 – The Blind Tiger Wall

Collaborations, Commissions, Community, Doodles, Events, Festivals, Grafik Warfare, Projects, Walls

Festy season is with us once more and one of my favourite festivals in the last 2 years has been Playgroup at Eridge park in Tunbridge Wells.

To celebrate this years festival, I was asked to come and paint the wall at the Blind Tiger Club Brighton. It was a beautiful day and I got more than my fair share of sunburn whilst doing it!

Drawing inspiration from this years theme and a little story on the flyer, I came up with this colourful design. Using some rough sketches and a lot of imagination (or making it up as I go), the whole wall took me a day to paint.

The finished wall can now be seen on the side of the pub.

More shots of the progress and a time lapsed video by Pooka Photography is on the way.
