The Boss

The title say’s it all, one of my favourite singer songwriters of all time and the first vinyl single I ever bought (Glory Days). Based on a previously done canvas piece I did a while a go, now available as a very limited run of screen prints. Enjoy!

My first video interview!

If you ever wanted to know where my inspiration comes from and my process, now you can! This video interview was my prize from Dusk 2 Dawn for one of my prints exhibited at the Open 24 2013 exhibition at New Walk Gallery in Leicester.

Weasley’s Wheezes!

I’ve been wanting to do a screen print based on Harry Potter for sometime now, but I couldn’t think of an approach that was a bit different and unique. Then when I was doing some research for a completely different project I came across some images of old victorian advertising and was inspired. So here is my tribute to great series of books and films. Enjoy.

Nottingham Contemporary!

Last weekend I had a stall at the Nottingham Contemporary arts and craft fair, which was my most successful craft fair to date. So I would just like to say a big thanks to everyone that came, and especially to those that parted with their hard earned cash and bought one of my screen prints!

I’ve also got a stall at the Makers Mart craft fair coming up at the Curve theatre in Leicester this weekend, I’ll post more info soon!.

Sometimes You Get What You Need

This is another print I did with the theme of Story telling in music. The Rolling Stones have always been a favourite band of mine and this is one of their classics. I think the quote is very apt especially in these days of austerity.

High Fidelity

I did this print for an up-coming exhibition of prints with the theme of Story telling in music. High Fidelity is one of the few films I’ve seen that I’ve also read the book from which it was based and both are excellent! This is a quote from the book that has always stuck with me, as like most teenagers (and adults) I was prone to listening to music that could be described as melancholy when I was feeling feeling down, which I’m sure didn’t help!

Thou Shall Not Pass!

So I thought it was time that I took a break from Science fiction and take a look at my other favourite genre Fantasy, and what example better than Lord of the Rings? I never read the books, as being dyslexic I’m not much of a reader but thanks to Peter Jackson I now don’t have too. There’s also a little nod to The Beatles in there too!

Disguise!

I got the idea for this one while I was working on the the Google ‘Those Droids’ screen print, I particularly like R2 D2s afro ;-)

Make It Sew!

Ok, it’s an obvious and terrible pun, but it makes me laugh, which probably says something about my sense of humour. I particularly like how Commander Data facial expression turned out on this one.

I no longer despair!

I came across this quote somewhere and was instantly inspired to make a print out of it. In these times of high fuel prices and global warming, I’d like to think H.G Wells would be encouraged that the humble bicycle is having a bit of renaissance, not sure how he’d react to the Planet of the Apes reference though ;-)

Liz Lemon Wants what every girl wants??

I thought I’d try my hand at less cheesy Valentines day print. So here’s a quote from one of my favourite TV shows 30 Rock as said by Liz Lemon the fictional character played by the lovely Tina Fey (also the creator of the show) With her love of food, star wars and all thing geek I think Liz Lemon would be my (almost) perfect girlfriend.

Enjoy! P.S If you take a close look you can see in the detail lots of little love heart, ahh.

Bartlet For President! (Again)

Happy New Year everyone! Well this is the first of a series of new print projects planned for 2012, so keep checking back for up-dates!
At the time of this post I’m watching (not for the first time), in my opinion the best American TV drama series ever! If you’ve seen it you probably understand and if you haven’t, I highly recommend checking it out! It’s by no means perfect and it does suffer from moments of ‘cheese’ but it’s still a classic.
This 2 colour hand pulled screen print is the largest I’ve attempted so far and measures 50cm x 70cm (approx) and is printed on high quality acid free 220gsm Fabriano Rosaspina art stock which has a deckled edge on the top and bottom. Each print is signed & numbered and I’m only going to be printing 100 of these so once they’re gone they’re gone! Enjoy!

Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat!

I think one of the first books I was exposed to as a child were the Cat in Hat and Green eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. I remember being fascinated by the the bright colours and weird characters. I recently found this quote by the great doctor and just thought it was perfect, as well as being true!

Alert!

This print probably won’t make much sense to anyone who hasn’t wasted away hours of their life playing video games, specifically Metal Gear Solid. But if like me have or still do this print will bring back familiar memories.

Sympathy for the Devil

The third in my series of musical prints is of my all time favourite guitarists, he’s probably not the most technically gifted out there but he’s created some of the best well known rock riffs ever! Not to mention he’s a legend in his own lifetime!

The Needle and the Damage Done

This is the second of a series of prints based on some of my favourite musicians. Although when I first heard one of his songs I had to switch the radio off, the sound of his voice just put me off! But then a few years later I heard The Needle and the Damage Done which remains one of my favourite Neil Young songs to this date and was instantly hooked! I now have his entire back catalogue (I think) and was very fortunate to see him play live when he came to the U.K in 2009.

When the Man comes around

I was late in discovering Johnny Cash and have to admit in being a bit dismissive whenever any of my friends previously recommended him. Then I heard his cover of Hurt a song originally by the Nine Inch nails and immediately loved it and went on to listening to his entire American Recordings albums. So here is my tribute to one of musics greats.

Great Scott!!

It’s hard to believe that it’s over 26 years since Back to the Future was released!!! I remember vividly my friends talking about seeing it during a break time at school when I was about 12 (god I feel old!) at the time I had no idea what they were talking about, but then went to see it that weekend and was blown away. I soo wanted a DeLorean and wish I had the co-ordination! to skateboard too!

So here is my tribute to a great film trilogy, enjoy!
