V&A Disobedient Objects workshop

I was asked by the V&A to run a workshop for young people referencing the Disobedient Objects exhibition.  Inspired by the slogan umbrellas created in Hong Kong by members of the Umbrella Movement I showed the group how to typeset a slogan, create a stencil and apply to an umbrella with some fantastic results.  Top photo courtesy of Becky Sun.

Just enough time during a quick stop over in Hong Kong to photograph flickering neons.

Hermès LHR

If you are passing through Heathrow Terminal 3 this Christmas please stop by Hermès to see two cubist fox sculptures I designed in the windows!  I created these for set designer Becky Cox by drawing up a net from a prototype, each section was then laser cut from steel and welded together.

Santander Yale University Fellowship

I was awarded a Santander - University of Brighton Travel Fellowship to visit Yale University this November to explore the School of Art and university collections. Spending time at the magnificent Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library was very enjoyable and above are some of my favourite items in the collection (all images courtesy of the Beinecke):

Court drawing from the Black Panthers Trial in New Haven, 1971 by Robert Templeton (made surreptitiously without the permission of the court)
Atelier Populaire poster from the countercultural protests in Paris May 1968
Pages from a medieval scribal pattern book by Gregorius Bock from Germany 1510-1517

Bamford AW 2014 Look Books

I recently worked on the covers of these sample and look books for the Bamford
Autumn - Winter 2014 collection, hand
made by designer Becky Cocks.  The design was laser etched into goat leather
creating a beautiful 'burnt' finish.

Coven Magazine

I was excited to contribute to the new issue of the fantastic Coven Magazine this month. The illustration was based on the idea of a summer wreath (as opposed to a Christmas wreath) and used screen print, collage and digital techniques to combine the tropical and mountainous themes of the articles. Read the whole issue online here.
