Here is some recent work I did for Coney, who are a company that make adventure and play and happenings happen – mixing storytelling, digital and the lovely old real world. This work was for a project project called Mr Eks’ Camden Players for Camden City Council, it’s an online fortune teller / events listing site that asks you a series of questions then determines where and what you should be doing in Camden for the month of July. Magic.

Most of my work is a mash of all different types of techniques including traditional and digital but this time I wanted to just paint the whole thing. The canvas I used is exactly 12 inches and the inner label canvasses are 6 inches. I feel it is not correct to use metric when describing record covers.
It’s for Mungolian Jetset, it’s called Moon Jocks and Prog Rocks, it’s disco, and it’s coming out on Smalltown Supersound soon.

Inevitable work from someone with chronic long term exposure to lolcats, B3TA, Strongbad, MySpace, Rather Good et al. Here are the printed cards of my new ‘Graphic Interchange Format’ paintings. That’s the .gif file extension for all your geekeroonies… and here’s an emoticon for good measure
Acrylic on canvas – now digital print on card.

In May I took part in the first Mill Co. group exhibition held at The Russian Club in East London. The theme of the exhibition was community (as befitting a co-operative) so I made a series of paintings to celebrate the crap, cute and wrong images people share on interwebz communities like MySpace – titled the Graphic Interchange Format Paintings after the humble .gif image format.
Lots of great people took part in the show including Patternity, Si Scott, Richard Kelly, Kevin Cummins, Karina Lax, Lisa Stannard, Inventory and loads of other people too. It was a reet boozy doo, collecting the most women from Rochdale in one East London venue ever.
Creative Review were there, and The Ballad Of too, plus Dazed and Confused and various other other happening people popped in to drink the free booze look at the work.
You can buy the work from the show in the shop and all proceeds go to the Mill Co. Foundation – which is set up to help children with health and learning disabilities get involved in making stuff and being creative.
Here’s my work – The Graphic Interchange Format Paintings – acrylic on canvas, none of your digital shit.

Mungolian Jetset released an album earlier this year, with all the stuff they gave away on free download in the past reworked and generally more epicly Munged up. It was released on Smalltown Supersound. I did the cover and here it is, showing the Mung rampaging through the deadlands eating some blahs along the way. He chomps down on kebabs made of heads, as you do.
It came with a 20 page booklet too:

It won in Website – Content & Design
This is a project I art directed and designed as my parting shot at magneticNorth. It was built by the talented team at mN in partnership with the BBC. I did the art direction, concept sketches, the little character, lots of UX and the landscape, I chose Danny Brown to do the gorgeous generative flowers and he did some magic voodoo.
I have resisted bragging about all the awards it has won but it was such a labour of love I may as well list them all here as payback for all the sleepless nights. So in no particular order: FWA, Pixel Awards, Adobe Y, IVCA Clarion and now a BIMA. Other stuff I do wins awards… maybe I will post that (one day when I can be arsed).
Here’s a pic of the work.

Here’s my latest cover work for the release of Eurora by Fjordfunk with Blackbelt Anderson and Brennan Green mixes. Out soon in one of those old fashioned record shops.
I did this using Crayolas, Color Explosion Black Rainbow – available at all good newsagents and shops that sell mainstream stationary for kids.

Bloom – ‘Smart Choices For The Carbon Conscious’ is a project I’ve been working on for a while, and it is now live and kicking, albeit BETA kicking at http://www.bbc.co.uk/bloom/flash.shtml
It’s an mN project produced in partnership with the BEEB and Danny Brown did the flower code magic.
It helps you find things that you can do to help stop climate change. So come on kids FIGHT APATHY… or don’t, whatever. It’s also my last piece of work for magneticNorth as I’m off (Dick Whittington stylee) to new places.
