Thursday, 3 December 2009


in my ice cave. The radiator has broken again. Working on a personal project at the moment to provide cautionary advice to the doting wife...such as to remember 'the boiled potato is the rock on which a happy home was foundered'. Hell yeah. More to come soon hopefully.


So this is a long overdue post but I've been in a bit of a slump and haven't really felt like sharing anything!!but here is the project to redesign the múm album 'finally we are no one' me and bronwyn collaborated on. We did an album cover and poster and also designed a sleeve for the single 'sleep/swin'. Its not quite finished but it is on it's way. All of it was hand screenprinted by the both of us. When finished it will have a glow in the dark layer and holes pierced through the prints to shine light through/ sew into.

The Glory of man's face is indeed his beard. To be improved..

Saturday, 31 October 2009


Me and my friend Alex recently did an animation together. It is pretty shoddy and doesn't make much sense, but we had fun and it makes me laugh so I thought I would share.

EDIT- Found out this didn't play!It does now!

Cecil and Ada

This has been my favourite ever find at a fleamarket. A suitcase full of about 100 letters dating between 1957-59 between two sweethearts, Cecil and Ada, who appear to have written religiously every few days to each other until their marriage. Although I find it sad that something as precious as this would turn up for sale on a market stall, I am secretly pleased that they have come into my possession! Haven't managed to read through many yet but the few I have are fascinating. Can't wait to do a project with these...
I found Cecil's interest in Ada's possibly transparent nightie, and desire to rub her cold ridden chest, particularly amusing.

Lots more posts over on my other blog

I just remember what got my hooked on hair in the first place. It was a scene in My Winnipeg that was in an old hairdressers. Brilliant film. Check it out.

Between the cradle and the grave lies a haircut and a shave

I have been reading a book called 'One thousand beards; a cultural history of facial hair' by Allan Peterkin, and so have been making some collages inspired by growing and cutting hair. Along the way I have found some interesting facts like- A fifteen year old boy will trim thirty feet of beard by the time he is eighty, a man has 2500 whiskers, and 90 percent of men shave.
And my favourite quote ' The glory of a man's face is his beard'. Too right.


A1 screenprint inspired by the word hypnotism. Bad photo taken on my bedroom floor!

A Book of bouts

I took these photos in very bright sunlight which is why they are so shadowy! I was determined to make this without using a computer at all so I made it by photocopying all of my drawings, all the pages are french-folded.
