Inkygoodness - Play - Exhibition... Coming soon!

Inkygoodness 4 is just round the corner (info after the pictures!). Below are two of the three pieces that will be going into the show from myself. The theme is 'PLAY'. The first piece is called 'Duck Of Death' and is a surreal, risky game where you can imagine pitting your wits against the morbid duck! The second is painted on the back of a used skateboard deck and is entitled 'Play With My Mind'. I've been enjoying drawing optical illusions recently and liked the idea of someone's puzzled brain being represented by these shapes, as if the problems that they are trying to solve are perhaps impossible. (Facebook Event)







Inkygoodness invite you to come and play!


Entertaining new artwork, limited edition prints and lively installations all lovingly created by a specially selected group of international artists and illustrators, inspired by the theme of 'Play'.

Decked 2010 Exhibition


15th - 29th August 2010

Private View: 18th August: 6-9.30pm

Coningsby Gallery, 30 Tottenham Street, London


Original one-off pieces of artwork on the back of skateboard decks! That is what DECKED is all about. It was a lot of fun being involved in the first one last year and have included my piece 'PINBALL HEAD' (see below) this year. VANS are sponsoring the show and I was one of a handful of the exhibitors lucky enough to customise a pair of VANS trainers. If you are in London on the 18th August, come along to the Private View from 6pm...

Preparation for the Big Chill Festival

This weekend is the Big Chill Festival and I'm collaborating with electronic producer LUKAS and VJs LUMEN & OCD for a unique performance on the British Film Institute stage, Friday night.

Drawing live onto a semi-translucent table-top of my own creation, the footage is captured from underneath and fed into the VJs laptops, where it will be chopped up and looped back in time with the live production of Lukas, creating a layered mixture of visuals in response to
the broad theme of "Sci-Fi", which we've been given to work with. See the official line-up on the Big Chill website (click here). We're on after the movie 'The Terminator'.

Below are some pictures of our preparation work so far. We'll be capturing a video and photos of the stage area, with the drawings projected onto the huge cinema screen, as the backdrop, and will post it up here after the weekend.
