Very happy to be this week’s Making Pictures guest Instagrammer! Check out my posts here: http://instagram.com/makingpicturessoho
I’ve recently been working on a series of experimental personal pieces cutting up printed photographic textures to create a set of multi-layered artworks. The series were inspired by alchemy and occult sciences focusing on the 3 stages of the Magnum Opus.
A small how-to project that I created for Anorak Magazine is today featured on Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog Goop.
We’re putting on a gig Friday 31st at Power Lunches to celebrate both Chinese New Year and Andrew Rae’s birthday! Come along and party with us!
Super excited to be chosen as the Cover of the Day on The Society of Publication Designers’ blog.
Tomorrow sees the launch of The Guardian’s new lifestyle magazine Do Something. I was very happy to be asked to create the cover artwork for this first issue. The typographic illustration is inspired by makers marks and incorporates all of the featured articles in the magazine.
My upcoming book Paper Cut is now available to pre-order from the Rockport Publishing store! The book features twenty-five of the world’s top papercraft illustrators, showcasing their astonishing works and delving deep into their working practices, through in-depth interviews and rarely seen behind-the-scenes photography. Get your copy here!
Here’s a sneak preview of a cover that I recently created for the new lifestyle magazine ‘Do Something’ available in Saturday’s Guadian. Art direction by Chris Clarke, animation by Alex Purcell. The cover is also featured in The Guardian’s explosive new TV advert.
Here’s a new illustration for this month’s edition of Glamour magazine.
I still have a couple of prints available in the Grand Neue Haiyan Print Auction. 100% of the proceeds go to the Disaster Emergency Commitee Philippines in support of their current relief efforts in the Philippines, so get bidding!
I’m very proud to be part of the Grand Kind print auction raising money for the Philippines Disaster and Emergency Committee alongside a whole host of talented artists. Check out the auction, buy a print and help us raise money for those in need: grandkindhaiyan.co.uk
Over the past year I have been busy working on my first book, with the most excellent Rockport Publishing. Titled ‘Paper Cut’ this 192 page book brings together 25 of the world’s leading papercraft artists and illustrators, delving deep into their working practices through in-depth interviews and rarely published behind-the-scenes imagery.
Now in it’s final stages I want to say a huge thank you to all the artists involved in this project. I’d also like to thank Chris Clarke for helping me design the book, Nick Redgrove for his proof-reading expertise, and everyone at Rockport for getting me involved in this project.
'Paper Cut' will be released in spring next year. Keep your eyes peeled for further details.
