Borderline


Just realized I took some photos of Gay for Johnny Depp at The Borderline.

I think i'll learn how to use this camera before I take it out again.

Poster comeback



I missed doing these regularly. If you, who ever you are reading, know anyone who ever needs regular, or one off posters then get in touch!
I don't bite.

Havana Club


Worked on the Havana Club a little more before the deadline and I guess it payed off, I was one of the six winners!

So this should be in bars around the UK that stock Havana Club rum when they get everything finalized.

The old one is on the left and the new on the right.

The Borderline


Last night was the final date on the Triple Threat Tour at The Borderline.
It was a great show and quite packed!

I finally got a look at my merch and was generously given all of it from Mark and Jane from Gravity DIP management who I'd like to say a big thank you to!

the posters came out really nice quality and colour and the t shirt is just how I imagined!






The poster is signed too!

Crash Love


This is something I would never normally do but i thought i'd try out ye olde vector style.

This is a competition on a really great blog which I read about 10 times a day - http://www.afinewshq.com/

I squeezed in the deadline with 7 hours left after waiting for weeks, could of been better but it's something new anyway.

I was inspired by that perfect little triangle heart inside the album but the rules state 'no hearts' so it turned into this exploding vegan corn field instead.

Hidden Histories




Something for uni - Hidden histories, had to make 3 illustrations about a hidden history that you knew about.

This is based on 'The Ghostie' in Hartlepool and all the trashy stories we used to make up so we had something exciting to do.

I think this was probably before they invented Pokemon red and blue.

Really good review of Descent here where the artwork gets it's first mention!

'Taken as a whole, though, Descent manages to connect its 12 parts beautifully, they intertwine just like the roots on the spectacular cover.'

Havana Club


Since this will be changed heres the full Havana Club piece so far.

This is something I wouldn't normally do at all but I thought i'd try something new.

It's quite large but the pic doesn't show this, its about A1 if A1 was a square, if you know what I mean!

MMMMMM


The Berlinwood.

Berlinwood


I actually ordered one.
I get bored at the desk, this is my sport.


Look at it's beautiful shape.


Look at its beautiful shape.


Look at it's beautiful shape.
Oh yeah and it's a fingerboard, I don't think it's very noticeable from the pics!

Havana Club


This is a brief from uni which is a competition so i'm not sure how much of this i'm allowed to show yet til the winners are picked.

This is just a little circle from it, overall it's about 75cm x 75 cm.
It's also acrylic, spray paint and ink on card.

Scholars


New shirt I'm working on.

One of the best best best albums of the year, I missed it off my earlier list.
Just really really good, well done Saosin.

Maths In Kerrang + Triple Threat


Maths are in this weeks Kerrang and get four K's!

Heady debut of unrelenting screamo ferocity from Norfolk

You have probably heard all this before: indiscernible larynx abuse, jigsaw-like riff patterns and a clattering rhythm section - all competing for attention like a litter of unloved puppies. in the wrong hands these well-worn dynamics can be repetitive, overly introspective and, worst of all, boring. on this 12 track, bedroom produced debut, however, Norfolk quartet Maths have combined them to beguiling, immersive effect. consisting of mainly short, abrasive hymns of hate that work in isolation or as one sprawling headfuck, this is an album as challenging, uncompromising and emotionally exhausting as it is brilliant. remember the first time you heard Dillinger? like that. lord knows what its all about but if its honest, passionate and pissed off sound you want, look no further. ... Read more

for fans of Envy & Dillinger Escape Plan



Also, the triple threat advertising is done.
Here are all the magazines, make sure you go to a show in your area!


I owned Kerrang this week a little bit, erm maybe.
two (little sections of) pages yo!

Hastings


Today I went to Hastings and this is what I found. This is the coastal town, that they forgot to close down.

Big Draw


Spent all day at uni sitting on the window ledge drawing the lovely stairs for my piece of the project 'mapping the move'.

Basically everyone adds a drawing to the archives so that when Saint Martins gets turned into a luxury hotel or whatever, theres always some drawings from the students and staff of the old building.

Cute idea.

Finished my work for the day so heres something I do in my spare time.
I don't know what that trick was but lets pretend I land it all the time.

Triple Threat Tour


The shirt is here, after a decision between the bands they all decided to go ahead and print this with the tour already loosing out on money, quite the compliment if you ask me!

Pick this up at any of the dates! Check Rock Sound and Front magazine for the ads to see when it's in your area!

First back print on a shirt too!

The JB Conspiracy



Just finished the new tour range with The JB Conspiracy.
T shirts, stickers and badges will all be available on tour!

Working alot with the Gravity DIP bands at the moment, so check them out!

More Maths news!




Just borrowed these from the Holy Roar Flickr,
It's the first time the finished album has been released so far.
As I said previously, you can listen to the full thing now at the Holy Roar site!
The whole thing is amazing, i've been repeating it alot lately.

If you only have like 1 minute spare and your thinking, 'hmmm I want to listen to that but I'm really busy right now, what song should I choose? Help!?' then I would definitely recommend From Her Journals because it's very very excellent. And just wait for the quieter part, the riffs are beautiful. If you decide after that, 'hmm maybe i'll listen to one more, what should I pick? Help!?' Then i'd choose ...And Left To Die, it's perfect in every way. I wish i'd wrote those guitar parts.

But really you can't just pick out a song, the whole thing flows as one musical piece from start to finish so do yourself a favour and listen to it in full.

My top 5 albums of the year go like this:

1. AFI - Sing the Sorrow (Don't care if it came out in 2003)
2. AFI - Crash Love
3. Morrissey - Years Of Refusal
4. Maths - Descent
5. Tubelord - Our First American Friends

So buy all of them actually.

ooooooo.
Links straight to the smashing new Holy Roar site, where I found this gem of a quote,

"This is going to be 6 panel card wallet, with elaborate roots/vines artwork by long-term band collaborator Sam Dunn. Shit must have taken fucking ages."

You can also listen to the album full on the site even if your not going to buy it so what are you waiting for!
