Stylist Mag Cover

The Stylist Magazine asked me if I could make a papercut design for them on the theme of a street party, here is my effort. I'm a big fan of the Stylist, they seem to have an adventurous streak when it come to commissioning artists to create special covers for them, only 2 weeks ago Nikki Tibbles made an incredible picture for them constructed entirely from cut flowers ! It was stunning. Tracey Emin did last week's and I remember a lovely cover too by the inspiring illustrator Quentin Blake. They are not dictatorial at all in their approach and seem to understand that by placing minimal constraints on the commissioned artist they will recieve in return the best results !

Achilles in The Guardian

In a feature relating to Greece leaving the Euro to return to the Drachma the Guardian newspaper asked me to do customise a 5 Euro note to act in transition. Here's my effort and the caption to go with it. 'Achilles and that damned heel of his. He's holding on his spear the letter omega, the last letter of the alphabet - the end.'

There's some new cats in town !!!

It seems as if we've been working on these pairs of cats for years but really it has only been many months ! They have been scattered all over the study staring at us as we go about our daily tasks "When are you going to hurry up and finish us" they taunt "We're bored being in this studio" They have been made in an edition of thirty, part transfer decal and part handpainted so in there own small way each one is unique ! They are hand numbered and initialled by me on their base, and come in smart black boxes. Off into the big wide world you go - Shoo !

Stationery nerd alert.

One of my favourite things to do in Japan is to hang out at the Tokyu Hands Department Store, especially in the stationery dept where they have the most incredible range of all types of sticky tape. It is stationery nerd heaven ! I have produced quite a few tape designs myself now, in fact we took delivery of a new one yesterday which you can see here . Although my dream would be to see it in here

Walk the walk

On Saturday thousands of women walked the street of London all through the night to raise money to fight breast cancer. The Moon walk ! The lovely (and inspiring and incredible) Nina asked me to design a T-shirt for them. Go Ladies !!!

These T-shirts live 5937 miles away

I've done a collaborative project with Tokyo based T-shirt designing geniuses Graniph, the way that they've adapted my designs is really fresh and unique - I love them especially the diagonal rainbow fade ! The green on Black has been done in flocking so the color is intensely vivid, and nice to stroke too !!
