CRABTREE & EVELYN

A lot of these things have been embargoed for a year or so, so much of these recent posts are old news technically but I have only recently been allowed to share.

This was another nice little job from last year for Crabtree & Evelyn. A very simple line drawing of some peach blossom was required to adorn their latest line of fragrances and creams. The English honey and Peach Blossom range, incorporating a selection of lotions and potions. I actually saw this in australia for the first time, in a very sleepy shop where a nice old man from Crabtree offered me a free hand massage as part of a promotion. I declined, naturally, and  offered up my mother in law instead. 

if you want some of this you can find it all on their website:

Thanks C&E!!

Last year i had the great pleasure of working alongside a brand new drinks company, Vertical water. They have a secret maple forest which they harvest for the best 100% pure Maple water for us to enjoy.

i was tasked with creating a droplet logo for them, and also designing the tetra pak style bottle. (Type work not mine) Quite a different line of approach from my usual work as this as so much more graphic, but it was really fun to design something so permanent as a brand logo. I also got to draw up some big forests for the trade shows. 

It was great to learn about how this stuff is collected using really old school tapping methods and be a part of something new, think coconut water but better!!

you can check out more about Vertical water on their website www.verticalwater.com 

Just checked over my prints for film4s summer screen prints exhibition, and signed a batch of 50 out of the 200 edition. 

these look super sweet in the flesh and printclublondon have done a superb job with these, thanks to Sam and Marco print geniuses!

you can pick these up for only £45 down at the show at somerset house which kicks off on the 30th July with the private view. RSVP now to make sure you get one and some free Jameson cocktails!!

As you are all aware I am part of this years Film4Summer Screen print exhibition at somerset house. The invite above has all the relevant details, RSVP now to make sure you can come to the opening and pick up some prints (including my a fitful of dollars) whilst they are still hot off the press. 

See you there for some FREE Jameson cocktails, whiskey macs apparently, my favourite!

It was an absolute pleasure to take charge of re-designing the logo for Peter Christian menswear. Peter christian are a gentlemen’s outfitters located in small dole outside of Brighton and i had the job of redrawing their established heritage style hare logo. They wanted to continue this heritage style and britishness but bring a little more modernity and dynamism to their boxing hares.

These will be embroidered on shirts and labels eventually as well as gracing their website. 

you can find them online here: www.peterchristian.co.uk

bit country gent for my liking but they have some very tasty loafers on there so worth checking out!

Thanks to Nick Alderton

I am very pleased to be able to show my latest print for the annual Somerset house, summer screen print exhibition. It kicked off last year where i took on Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood to create a poster to accompany their program of summer outdoor screenings. This year I had the immense pleasure of tackling one of the ultimate spaghetti western films of all time, A Fitsful of Dollars. it was great to draw Clint and co in such an iconic performance. I think this is being shown as a double bill with Mad Max 2 so not one to miss.  Further info on the exhibition featuring other amazing artists as Steve Wilson and HelloVon, can be found on the link below.

Last new piece from the Fireworks for dead men show. 

The Stalker Red Schuhart. For anyone familiar with the novel ‘Roadside Picnic’ this is my imagining of Red, the central character.

Available at the NOW EXTENDED show at Coningsby gallery, tottenham street, London, UK! The show has been extended by a couple of weeks to the 17th april, so anyone who didn’t get a chance to come to the Private View or hasn’t been down yet, you now have a couple extra weeks to make the trip. 

The Reverse Glass mirror of this piece, pictured, is still for sale at the show. 

cheers

One more from the show, entitled ‘At The end of the World’. this title wont make sense unless you know me personally.

a definite favourite of mine, available as a reverse glass mirror at the coningsby gallery as part of the extended ‘Fireworks for dead men’ show.
