Battle of the Bands

Last Friday night I was asked to take some pictures at the Battle of the Bands @ Mossbank Hall. There were 6 great bands battling to win, competition was tight but, "Organised Chaos" from Sandwick won overall! Well done to all the bands involved!

See a penny pick it up

I have just completed some orders for my Mono "Money" book. I hope to start producing more books for the Mono series again. I love doing them, its such a good way to explore an idea in a short period of time.

When looking for the files on my hard drive I came by a little test video I produced about a year ago, to go along with the book. There's something i like about it, (probably the roughness and mistakes!) So I uploaded it to Youtube for your viewing pleasure.
Please get in touch if you would like to order either of the Mono books -

A is for Award!

So after a long wait, I received my award from YCN through the post this week.
Colour matched to my wall?

YCN are a creative agency who run the annual YCN Student Awards, and as part of my final year studies at Grays School of Art (2008-09) I worked on a brief to encourage people to play more ping pong. My results can be seen on my site here, or on the YCN "A is for Awards" archive. I suggest you have a look at the video on my site to give you an idea how it works.

It was very exciting unpacking this. It's made of solid rubber, its quite heavy!
Was a surprise to find enclosed an excellent poster of all the winners heads cut n' pasted onto a pretty awesome background.
And another new addition to my studio is a print by a Co:Lab colleague, New Dead Language, as part of his Belonging set.
Looking good! Thanks YCN and Andrew!

Co:Lab Set 2 complete!

The last print in set two of the Co:Lab project was printed tonight! Now we are almost all set for the Unique Presence exhibition this Saturday 5 Dec, 2pm - 9pm @ Islesburgh Community Centre, Drama Room, Lerwick, Shetland.
Now all we need are some nice little cards to give away to let people know where they can out find more about Co:Lab...
The cards use the test prints we printed while working on this project - we overprint with our details then rip up and give out to people!

In the meantime bookmark the Co:Lab blog where we will post details about future projects and purchasing prints!

Saturday is closing in...

... and we're well underway for being ready for the debut of Co:Lab at our exhibition this Saturday. Unique Presence.

Along with Andrew Morrison and Beto, I have been working on a set of collaborative prints, which we printed two more of tonight.
