Making Of: Flamingorama

Having always looked towards the wilder side of the animal kingdom for inspiration as mentioned in the ‘Left with the Unicorns’ blog post, I knew that I was going to be working on a bird theme collection of prints for the next few months at least. When I heard the news that these were potentially […]

Making Of: Scarlett Ibis

Having always looked towards the wilder side of the animal kingdom for inspiration I tried not to fly too far from the nest with the new collection of hand screen printed editions especially made for the Nelly Duff gallery in London. 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 […]

Scraffer Yearbook 2011

  Well, I was in very good company when I was asked to be part of the very first Scraffer Year book (2011). The main objectives of the project was to make a summery of the year through the words and images of Urbanite artists all in the aid  for Teenage Cancer Trust. There was a […]

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 […]

Print Yourself Out of Debt

It’s any printers long term dream…how to print money! So here at Brag Towers we thought we have a go and try to beat that nasty old Credit Crunch with the revival of our “Credit Crunch Note” Each $100 note is worth $50, with the exchange rate of:  50 USD = 32 GBP. It’s not guaranteed to […]

Making Of: Hood Thingamajigs

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 […]

Making Of: Limited Edition Black ZeVra

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 […]

Making of: Ludo’s e-Lepidoptera Print

I was so excited to be asked to print for Ludo for his first solo show in the UK at the High Roller Society which opened last Friday. I really enjoyed printing this image, it was such a precise image with lots of delicate half tone dots so I had to make sure that the […]

Breuckelen@Recoat Gallery

While we were on our hols in Glasgow we managed to make it down to the EMA show @Recoat Gallery. The work was inspired by Ema’s time living in NYC for nearly ten years. The work was predominately chromatic with the only flashes of colour appearing in her well illustrated graphic screen prints. My absolute personal faves were the […]

Galloping New ZeVras

It’s a wrap for the new Silver ZeVra colour-way which was delivered to Nelly Duff last Saturday……the word is that there has already been some pre- orders so fingers crossed they will soon gallop their way out of the gallery again! A final  note on the ZeVras, I finally managed to get into the Nelly Duff HQ and […]

Kid Acne:Kill Your Darlings

I had the opportunity to go up to  to Sheffield to the Millennium Gallery to see the Kid Acne solo show. What a great space and what a carefully contemplated show! Really worth going up, especially as there are lots of Kid Acne goodies to buy at the gift shop….I bought my self a ‘Colour Me Bad’ […]

Making of: New Scarves

Well done to those of you who managed to buy a preview of the scarves at White Cross Street party, I think it was the classic case of ‘the early bird catches the worm’. So, as of last week, the scarves have gone up on the Brag shop. There are lots more different designs and […]

Brag Boutique: Street View

Just Like Millions of others a few weeks ago, I was re-watching Exit Through the Gift Shop on the telly, and I got really sentimntal when the shot of Brag Boutique came on, funny how sugar coated some memories can be! Then it suddenly dawned on me that I never took a descent photo outside the old […]

Parkway Rythm: Working Girl

I got a surprise email from a musician from Sweden who went about a spiral way to manage to find me, which I was really flattered by. I am sure I have never been head hunted like this before. What I found most amusing  was that after he had spotted my work out on the street, he had envisaged […]

So, here is the link for the short film I was in, made by the sweet boys form the Safewalls Project!
