I'm going away for a week, just down to the Isle of Wight, from this Saturday to the next Saturday. So if I don't reply to emails next week I do apologise and will get right on it the next :)

Humber Street Sesh - Live Painting

It was Humber Street Sesh this weekend just gone which was the first all day music event held and paid for by the people of Hull. It was an amazing day with street stalls, a silent disco, music from different hull bands all day, a pop up cinema, and best of all live painting!

Me, Gareth Sleightholme, Dominic Li, Chris Wood and James Fenwick did some live painting from 10am till 2.30pm. It was such good fun and lots of the public enjoyed stopping and watching us create.
It was the first day off together me and James had had in ages and we spent it painting side by side...certainly a different way for a couple to spend their spare time!

More artists took over in the afternoon till late on but it was getting a bit chaotic as the public got increasingly more drunk!

Roll on next year!

Soap Box Press

I've written an article for SoapBox Press which was quite fun! They asked me if I wanted to do one on what inspires me and the kind of things I've found through my Illustration. So if you want to check it out and read it, along with lots of other fantastic articles from other creative's go to there website

My article's named 'Dark Side' and has my Elvis Presley signing a ladies chest image underneath.

Untold Method

Untold Method is a bi-monthly on-line magazine, that features creative writing, artwork and an independent graphic novel called Philistone. I have recently done a piece for Untold Method's Philistone series as you can see above.
The synopsis of the graphic novel is: 

'Philistone is about Jack Titor who is a fuck-up.
He's heading towards middle-age, leaving nothing but a trail of missed opportunities, regrets and a life half lived. Until one day he see's a mysterious advert online, promising fresh new experiences, lifelong change and adventure.
When Jack replies to the ad he is fitted with a philistone implant. The implant begins to blur the lines between his inner world and the world outside. His dreams come to life on city streets, he meets gods in pubs and devils in back-alleys. Haunted by memories, beliefs and nightmares he is forced on a psychedelic journey through his own mind, that will strip away everything he is, never knowing if at the end of it he'll find madness or revelation.'
