Wu-Tang Clan vs. The Beatles, put this together because I got wind that producer Tom Caruana was doing another mash up of my favourite musical acts. The first mixtape was awesome and so I’m heavily looking forward to hearing this one.

Designed this for HANTU Collective, I guess I kind of stole the idea from Itchy and Scratchy, always wanted to have a cartoon rat skull on a t-shirt anyway.

I put this together from my sketchbook from a while back and noticed how everyone has a kitten or a cat on instagram. I wanted to draw a hipster kitty and realised… this drawing is a cat version of me. Doh

Psychadelic Panda
I like many, like panda bears, they’re pretty cute, even for big potentially vicious, slow and lazy animals. This piece is playing off the work I did last year with my psychedelic “Tiger Eye” design, I love using loads of brash wash colours in my work even if it doesn’t really suit my classic style.

Stormtrooper
Like many millions out there I have a friend who is a Star Wars nut, he’s got the replica Storm Trooper helmets and even a full Chewbacca suit. So what do I get him for Christmas?
I decided to draw my own Star Wars inspired piece. I think he rather liked it.

JANELLE MONAE
I had time to finish up my Janelle Monae picture from my previous post, this time adding a body and finding the right image to reference from for the pose. Pretty happy with this.

I’ve put this design together for Hantu Collective for their new line of t-shirts, it’s based on a set of new ideas I’ve had brewing in my head for a while, I’ve always been interested in tribal masks and cultural folklore, especially from Japan and eastern Europe, somehow I’m trying to find ways to mix this all together.

This design I’ve named Sky Lord, just one of many elemental “gods” I’m designing and having fun with. 


I’ve been humbled this month with an interview and feature in Now Then Magazine, a popular free publication based in the heart of Sheffield. They regularly feature artists as their main angle and they use up many pages with artwork from the featured artist, I’ve kept copies as collectables from certain artists features such as Nick Deakin and Lord Bunn in the past.

Copies of the magazine are free and can be found in most independent bars and boutiques around Sheffield!





Sheffield based band, Hey Sholay have been making waves in the local scene as well as winning a poll with the NME to win a gig slot at this years EXIT fest in Serbia. I’m a big fan of their music with their galloping drum beats and distorted guitars and catchy melodies. Listening to their music paints a picture in my head of how I’d approach their artwork, even though two members of the band look after the artwork which is very fine art touching on illustrative angles.



Here I wanted to play with my use of water colour textures and a bit of linear pencil drawing, I had a lot of fun working in this, just purely because it’s been ages since I’ve worked on any personal work.




I’m still finding it hard to find a spare moment just so I can update my blog and keep things up to scratch. The past month I’ve been mainly working with local musicians in and around Sheffield. In particular, I’ve been a fan of Sarah Mac’s blend of genre stroke pop song writing and instrumentals, she’s even cooler and down to earth when you meet her in person so her music more or less fits well with her being.

I was asked by Liam at Mixed in Sheffield who’s been mixing the album for Sarah, to produce some artwork for her new EP titled, Everyone Knows. Jumped at the chance, I instantly had an idea in my head, some might say slightly predictable and admitted the design concept was predictable on my part but I thought in context to what I know of Sarah Mac, it suits well.
