AOI Illustration Award 2013
Rather chuffed to have two works shortlisted in this years AOI Illustration Awards, in the Public Realm and Advertising categories; The animation for Rapha/Mogwai ‘Knock for Knock’ I worked on with director Antony Crook for RSA Films, and the ‘Up At The O2’ door illustrations, commissioned for agency pd3.
Theres some excellent work here, so I dont expect to get through the next round, but hey! *BEAMS*
Another logo for Celia. This is a bit more straight up - inspired by Kristyan Sakis’ font created for M/M Paris for Bjork’s Vespertine album, we wanted something female, sweet, sharp and interesting, utilising the natural curves inherent in ‘celia’ but not girly or twee. It was pretty hard but we got there… I used Illustrator for about the first time, properly too which was challenging but Im pretty pleased. May work up into whole typeset one day..
New logo for Celia Arias’ Lady Gonzalez work. Lots of colourful fun and as ever, a darling to work with!
I was stuck on what to get my partner for his birthday. SO I made him a personalised colouring book. It went down quite well. If anyone wants a copy to colour in and then send back to me, I have a few spares!

I cant get enough of this! Brilliant work.
Im working with Alison, incredible photo dude Tom Martin and Cooking Vinyl records on the design for the new album campaign - album cover being worked on as we speak - and this is the first piece of the puzzle to be revealed.
Another @Secret7s cover, just cos i had a spare evening and ive got a bit obsessed with them… Bennie!
When jobs come through from Kerrang! its generally 1) dark and late-ish 2) always something pretty funny. These are from this weeks fantastic edition. Which you should buy for, if nothing else, James McMahon’s incredible Biffy Clyro interview. Even if you arent a fan, its necessary reading.
But I digress - these pics were for an Untold Stories feature - Anthrax and a tortoise, A vomiting Oli Sykes and Dave Grohl of the phone to someones mum. Nice!
Happy New Year
I PROMISE TO DO
a) more work
b) show it to people
so heres a book cover from late last year - buy the ebook here!
Now, being of the lady persuasion, Movember poses something of a problem. However, everyone can support - My Granddad was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer this year, so its something close to my family’s heart… Now, you can have a portrait of yourself, by me from the Gallery Of Mo chaps for the incredibly reasonable price of a minimum £20 donation - with added ‘tash! GO SUPPORT!
