INTERVIEW | CA COLLECTION


Following on from Angus Hyland of Pentagram and Jonathan Barnbrook in the two previous issue, CA Collection Magazine came round the studio in February and spent an afternoon kindly listening to me ramble on about what I've been up to, a few key projects and what I think about certain things. Now available, the third issue of this recently launched magazine aimed at studios and industry professionals is sporting the 13 page feature nicely interspersed with shots of my studio and key pieces of work.

Not cheap at £15 a pop but it's a hefty tome featuring some great work from a lot of different image makers - definitely something built to keep you going through these rainy days.

IT'S NICE THAT | YEAR IN REVIEW 2011


Finally back in London and before I begin to tackle the the debris of 2011 and get the studio ship shape and primed for 2012 I thought I'd post about a little interview I did with the guys at It's Nice That about last year. They interviewed 12 people, one for each month, as part of their Year in Review feature.

EIGHT:48


Not satisfied with two growing web based businesses the team behind Counter-Print and Counter-Objects have just launched their own publication. Clearly in love with all things printed and tactile Eight:48 only goes to reinforce this - the theme of issue one being "Is Print Dead ?" spread over 40 pages of a beautifully designed newspaper measuring 289x400mm.

I was kindly interviewed for the issue alongside Anthony Burril, Jason Tozer, Supermundane and Julien Vallee among others. You can read my full interview by clicking the link below.

BECKS ART LABELS 2009 / OBSERVER MUSIC MONTHLY


-
Another nice surprise in the weekend papers - my reworking of the Smith's "The Queen is Dead" was featured in this weeks Observer Music Monthly.
-
"Less direct, though equally as dazzling, is Hellovon's image for The Queen is Dead. Where the original featured french actor, Alain Delon, the remake underscores the Smiths' essential Britishness , featuring as it does a Union Jack-painted butterly, "the essence of an album," says Hellovon,"that is funny, ferocious and heartbreaking."

WALLPAPER* MAGAZINE / POLAROID PROJECT / SEMBLANCE


-
The lovely Wallaper* Magazine has just put live their Polaroid Project which hails in the much missed instant format film going back on sale thanks to a very savvy move from Urban Outfitters.
-
"In celebration of this new generation, we bagged ten cameras before they hit the shelves and passed them on to ten of our favourite, pioneering creatives and asked them to shoot one film each of whatever they chose. The results are mixed, grainy, blurred, brilliant and haphazard in places, but each of the photographs has the essence of what makes Polaroid so beloved"
-
I chose to document the making of my forthcoming "Semblance" exhibition.
-
You can see galleries from some incredible talent such as Noma Bar, Abake, Troika and Preen among others.
