It’s been a busy summer and i’ve noticed i haven’t posted since Glastonbury…whoops.
I have a new print out this week to coincide with an installation i’ve made for Graffik gallery for the Moniker art fair which opens tonight the 5th of October and runs over the weekend. Drop in, it’s a great group of galleries from all over the world.
The new print is a reworking of Indigo dropping a smile onto one of the first Dotmasters series, it’s a new work tagging an old work. i did a small edition years ago to coincide with a show in London, since then indigo has traveled the world from America to Japan. i’ve been asked for the print too many times so back by popular command here she is.
She comes in 4 great colours each an edition of 25, and was beautifully printed by Ben at Mesh silkscreens in Bristol.

I’ve had a thing for Astroboy since exhibiting in Tokyo a few years at Gypsy Eyes Cafe. The recent mural in Croydon only helped to me love him more. So here he is, the latest one of the TOY series i started painting them for Nuart festival in 2008.

The print pre release and launch event went well. Thanks to everyone who came to the Seven Dials spotlight festival and bought a print.

‘Indigo gets up…Before’ & ‘…After’ .The latest in the Rude Kids series.The characters in the Rude Kids series are friends and family, all under 12 and simply too nice to ‘flip the bird’ or vandalise your walls. With teenage years looming, those days are just round the corner; for now, these kids are still too sweet and without the angst to convincingly pull it off. The series captures these kids while they’re still just ‘rude kids’.
This edition includes three colour ways of ‘Indigo’, with two versions: a ‘Before’ she tags the Mona Lisa and an ‘After’. Opinion was split as to which one we liked best, so we thought we’d leave it to you, in these low edition size series of prints.

I know it’s all a bit late but the reason to write it up is so i can remember where and what the hell i have been doing over the last few months…to be honest it’s been a bit of a blur.
Old friend and collaborator Martyn Reed invited me to Stavanger to do a show at his gallery Reed Projects.There is work available from the show on their online gallery here
widewalls gave some nice coverage here
We produced a print for the event the latest in the TOY series that are dotted all over town from years gone by:
I’m never the best organised person, the next thing is always upon me before i have truly finished the last. Prints and stuff tend to get buried under the new work and certain plan chest drawers are rarely looked in as i rarely have time to open those cans of worms.
But forces have conspired and constant nagging from some quarters have made me go through the lot and has turned up a few surprises. I have put the bulk of what i have found up in the shop on the site. There are odd colour ways that have never seen the light of day. Whole editions that have been forgotten or mislaid as well as some current stock that has, up until now been sold through galleries that i have exhibited at.
I have also put up the remainder of the ‘Crime o fashion’ tees from the last show.
Over the coming months i will dig a little deeper and see what else i’ve overlooked, but thats enough for now.
I’ve had a close relationship with The Buzzcocks since working with them on their 30th anniversary tour in 2006, creating visuals for their tour and designing the cover for their live album. When they announced that they were releasing a new album, it was a good opportunity to collaborate again and I’ve created the artwork for The Way, released this month.
To celebrate the launch of the album, I used the stencil to create a fine art print on 250grm Reeves off-white paper, with a single silk-screen print. There is a small edition of prints signed by The Buzzcocks, and a run of 76 (the year they started) as a edition of prints signed by me. you can find them in the Shop link in the menu above
