Video of Northam silos, western Australia.

I'm working on a few big projects at the moment so this blog and my emails are a little behind. Sorry about that.

Below is a fantastic video made by Peacock visuals of the work i did in Australia with Form this year. It really shows the scale of these things.

Northam grain silos, Western Australia.

I've been away from home for a while now so i've not really managed to keep up to date with this blog. I'm back now so over the next week or so i'll get things up to speed. 
This is a huge project i did out in Western Australia with Form where i spent over two weeks painting on these 38 metre high grain silos. It was a truly fantastic experience and amazing to get the chance to work on this sort of scale.

Etching book.

I'm working hard in the studio at the moment putting together a postcard size book. The collection will be about thirty high quality reproductions of these hand coloured copper plate etchings. All drawn in miniature under a magnifying glass. Each copper plate is only 11cm. It's painstakingly slow work but it feels great experimenting and pushing the boundaries of my print work.  
         Over the next month or two i'll iron out the details, but i aim to hand print the covers and do a run that should take a while to sell out. Not as big a run as my last book but enough to stop it selling out the same day. I'm travelling a lot soon so my studio time will disappear, but i intend on making sure its out some time this summer.

Rare and Racy - Sheffield.

Another painting I did while I was up in Sheffield. Rare and Racy is by far my favorite shop in Sheffield. It's been going since 1969 and it's also the very first place I started selling my Zines.

It's future is pretty uncertain. It seems likely that this lovely old block of shops is going to be knocked down to make way for some bland shops or apartments. To see this independent place get replaced by something new and generic seems a sad blow for this part of town.

This is also where I've been finding all my old wrapping paper for my books. I'm now down to the last few boxes of my books online. To celebrate the end of this run i've signed all the ones that are left. I've also cut up all the old offcuts and printing mistakes from my shed each book comes with a scrap of old print from something i've released in the past.

My books are now sold out. There should be a stock of unsigned ones left in several shops. Rare and racy in the north of England and Gosh comics in the south of england. There is also a last delivery to UTBNY for customers stateside who want reduced shipping rates. Expect delays though....I have to carry all these things to the post office and it's a pain.

The spider - Mosborough, Sheffield.

Sorry for the slow start to the year on here. I've spent the first past few months as a hermit in my garden shed, very busy working on some new books. My Instagram page is the best way to see all that.
    This week i felt the cabin fever set in so i decided to go and find a nice spot to paint. This spider is painted on a huge burnt out barn somewhere along Station road in Mosborough, Sheffield.
