Making of: Remi Rough Notorious

This print had been in the planning for a while and I knew I could’t promise to print it unless I had proofed it and was happy enough to pursue and finish it! You ask why, but all is not that appears to be with this design. Like most of Remi/Roughs art work, everything has […]

Mobstr- “This One” Screen Print

  As per usual, I swear to go into semi-retirement of producing commercial prints for artists but as per usual, something always entices me to get my special squeegees, and large pristine screens out and make an edition for someone. This is my first screen print for the artist, that I actually got one of […]

Hackney Wicked 2012 @Red Market & Beyond

So this years Hackney WickEd extravaganza took a slight back seat from it’s usual home (due to the Olympics, I guess) and materialised itself in the guise of diverse events which were held in several locations across the East London. We had the opportunity to make some “art” and sell our wares at one of […]

Whitecross St party 2012

  It was the third year that we participated in Whitecross Street Party.

Although I am […]

Sweet Memories-Sweet Revenge

  I really don’t need to say much this time, the photo’s explain it all! It was all decks on hand when the Sweet Toof Sweet Revenge show was getting put up by the High Roller Society. The mammoth space in Hackney Wicks Colour Works building was transformed in to a “sweet delight” in the […]

It’s a Wilde Ride

Lets say I couldn’t keep my excitement in when I was asked to be part of this project. I think the first thing that went through my mind was that, how would I screen print onto a car without a curved screen? Then all these other random thoughts came to me, as I knew that […]

Making Of: Holly-Anne Buck Print

Competition winner- Holly-Anne Buck Little did I know a chance meeting with Holly-Anne Buck who had the next stand by mine at the Other Art Fair 1 that I would end up printing her winning designs a few months later!

Behind the Scenes at the “Zoo”

I am sure you have had enough of me going on about this years Pick Me Up (Graphics Fair) by now, but it is because I was so excited to have something in the show. For the last two years, I had visited the fair and was a little envious of all the artists that […]

Making Of: Flamingorama

With some classical references and taking inspiration from the likes of John Audubon and […]

Left with the Unicorns

In my mind, I had been planning to start a bird based screen printing project for some time now. Many hours of researching through books, The V & A, The British Musuem and the Museum of Natural History  and a million photographs I was driving my self into a right tizz. So many choices and […]

Making Of: Credit Crunch Wallpaper

I can see why making money can be so addictive as I think I have definitely developed an addiction to “Printing Money”. As I lay there fantasising how great it would be to be surrounded by money I had a epiphany! Make some wallpaper, this was the solution. As it shows in the photographs, it […]

Making Of: Otto Schade Amy Winehouse Print

There were spooky going on’s in the studio when these Amy Winehouse art works were being printed . As the layers of the art work were broken down, with each layer I printed, I could almost see in to the soul of the subject….never mind all the things going missing and being moved around in […]

Million hours in making but they are back. The famous Bragacalavas from the good old “Brag Boutique” winter staples. I had actually forgotten how long they take to make, start to finish. Luckily, I had found a batch of the fabric already cut out in one of the storage bags, so I only had to […]

So, I had a happy accident one day whilst cutting out my Pink ZeVra’s, one fell onto some Black paper which was lying on the studio floor. This was the start of my mission to try and pull off a print on Black paper. I knew it wouldn’t be easy as this colour can soak […]

Making Of: Otto Schade: Message to Environmentally Unfriendly People

I had never met Otto Schade but had seen his work around the Truman Brewery  and around East London. So, I was intrigued and a little nervous to be making some prints for him at the beginning. It’s always a bit weird to meet someone for the first time who’s work you have seen and […]

Peter Chang Studio Visit

Whilst in Glasgow, we had the privilege in visiting the remarkable studio of Peter Chang. I was blown the first time I saw this artist’s hand made jewellery, often made from various acrylics and plastics as well as a mixture of found objects. Chang is ever the perfectionist and I was told some pieces can take up months and months of his time to perfect. With […]
