John Lennon

Last week saw the anniversary of John Lennon's death.
I found a very contrasting picture of him and set about creating this image of him using dots.
After a weeks work, grabbing hours at night, and one pen later, I've finished my image.

Project 365...

Before the start of 2011 I made a promise to myself, that I would complete PROJECT 365. The idea behind this project is to take a photo-a-day for a whole year.

Setting myself the rule of only using my iPhone to take pictures, knowing I would be carrying that with me everyday, I went about and snapped everything and anything throughout the year 2011.

Each picture is taken and then I've added an effect with a cool photo app, because lets face it, they would look boring otherwise.

As the year is coming to an end, I'm beginning to put all my photos together and as a set they dont look that bad. It's been a great way of documenting a year in the life of myself, it has been abit of a pain on those dull Sundays where I didnt actually do anything but have needed to take a picture. But on the whole I would recommend doing it!

I cant wait to share all of them on here but for now I have 3 recent shots that I particularly like...enjoy.

Chuck Close

When I was at school and in my art class, I really got into an artist called Chuck Close. A photo realistic painter, photographer and printmaker who created portraits of his friends on large scale in perfect detail, as well as self-portraits.
His skill is second to none and style is very recognizable, often using a grid set-up to help construct his masterpieces.

It's not often I blog about someones work but I've been following Close for 10years now and I thought I'd like to share his great talent, which he has been showing for well over 30years now.

It's that time of year again where men all over the country men sacrifice their good looks and grow a moustache throughout the month of November to raise money and support prostate cancer.
I can count myself lucky, as I have the ability to grow a full face of hair. Many friends have commented that they were jealous of my growing skills. So this year I shall take this talent and cultivate a delicious Mo for Movember!
This is my second attemp
t of Movember, as my first try ended as bad as any charity act could end with me losing my job. (I should say I didn't loose my job because of the 'tache, I just happened to have the moustache on the day I heard the bad news.)
So I've been out and brought a new razor, having not clean shaved for well over 4 years, my face will be revealed in all it's glory as I embark on my Mo adventure.

If you would like to support this great charity please take the time to donate to my Mo Team, click on the link and hit the big don
ate button.


Any contribution would be very warmly received. And I'll be taking pictures daily to track my progress and upload them week by week.

Also, 'tache designs are still open for discussion, any ideas or suggestions welcome.

Love x

A friend wanted my Oasis illustration but the douch that I am had deleted the file. Luckily I found the sketch and was able to work my magic again, and this time round with more detail.

He requested the quote "Live forever"*.

I have a couple of these as prints now so if anyone else wants one give me a holla.

Ad, let me know how where you want this delievering.


*I know on the picture it says life forever but this has now been changed, I'm too lazy to change the photo in this post

Limited Edition Prints

I had some of my Illustrated Celebs screen printed the other week and I have only a couple left. One went to my little competition winner, and the others have been snapped up.
The print is
of our favourite New Zealanders Bret and Jermaine, all with hand written quote of your choice from the show.

Quotes already been suggested by people were: -

"Born to folk"
"She's so hot she's making me sexist...bitch"
"Its spaghetti and girls, we love spaghetti and girls"
"Go folk yourself" (not from the show, just damn witty)

all prints are:
Hand silk screened on thick paper
330mm x 420mm
edition of 6, hand signed with added quote

So if you want yourself one of these treats get in touch quickly.

Break Your Socks - Anti Valentines

No, Break Your Socks isnt a fresh new boy band striaght from the mean streets of Lincoln, its a live music/screen printing event run by some very lovely young men, Rich, Jamie, Luke and Windle.
The BYS evenings are held every couple of months with a certain theme. This being February the theme is Anti-Valentines.
I was lucky enough to have my design printed as one of the tee's to be sold on the night, which is this Thursday (03-02-2011).

Here's a closer look at the four designs.

Photography By Lincoln based photographer Rick Nunn
