This Sunday sees my work alongside Jess Wilson & Mr Penfold at Jealous Gallery East. 'Anything Goes' pretty much is exactly what is says on the can.. three artists showcasing what they do best, ie. creating colourful POP! artworks. The show opens this Sunday October 18th, running through to November 8th. It previews on Wednesday November 4th, come down to Jealous & view these artworks in the flesh.. sunglasses optional, ; ) !
'Peachy Büms' (shown above) is my latest Edition created at Jealous Gallery.
Hope to see you there, ; )

This year sees the 50th Anniversary of The Road Sign, an object I imagine most of us take for granted.. Designed by Margaret Calvert & Jock Kinneir their system has became a role model for modern signage all over the world. Curated beautifully by 'Made North', the 'Design Museum' will play host for '50 Years of British Road Signs', where fifty current interpretations of this ubiquitous object will be on show by various leading (I know!) designers & artists. Running from September 19th through to 25th October the exhibition is free as part of the 'London Design Festival' .. just make sure you know how to get there yeah..
Both signs are silkscreen prints on to an Aluminium Roadsign / 4 colour print.
Made North's theme of 'North & South' was the perfect platform to silkscreen pop images of Liverpool's Fab Four & London's The Rolling Stones. Apparently at the time you were either one way or the other .. my Mum being a scouser was strictly Beatles !

'ColoursMayVary'.. consider yourself warned, : ) I met Becky & Andy at a print workshop in Leeds a while back. One beer in & we realised we had all spent part of our early years in the New town that still is Hemel Hempstead. There in lay our bond.. well that & our love for graphic art, craft, independent publishing & most things printed.. ! Their shop is pretty special, its content considered and well thought out. Their recent themed event 'Funland' is worth a visit whether in person or online. Although it will have to be a virtual taste of the delicious 'Northern Bloc' ice cream if it is the latter.. ; (

I've been very patient keeping this one under wraps.. especially as I'm so excited about it. Love the label Wonderfulsound, run by music maverick Miles Copeland.. lurve the tunes by the super talented 'Nev Cottee' & really loved creating the sleeve ; )
