Live Projection 'Strange Aftertaste'

The live projection of 'Strange Aftertaste' took place today in the centre of Barnsley and I loved it! The music was
pumped up so loud that it bounced off the buildings creating and eerie organic echo. The audio worked really well
with the animated doodle sketches which I created during an intense week long iPad drawing fest using the latest
version of the BRUSHES app.

Animated Projection Paintings

Here are a selection of screen grabs from an animated piece I have created for a special event in Barnsley next Saturday evening, aimed at promoting the 'Alternative' as part of alcohol awareness week. I have also created the logo and a variety of designs which run across the whole campaign. This project was a real pleasure to be part of. I am Excited to see the work projected building sized!

Prints and Pens Collaboration

Here are three new images from another bird themed collaboration with Photographer Yvonne Roberts. The process is a simple one. Yvonne prints out some of her stunning and vibrant photographic compositions on lush paper, and I then scrawl all over them. Nice!

Bird Box Complete and Shipped!

The custom bird box that I created with Jonathan Grauel (Woven Narratives) for the Put A Bird On It project is now complete and on its way to the good folks at We Make in Portland, USA. Here is the complete box, followed by a few process images. Jonathan did a great job with the quirky construction, from a design we cobbled together during a Skype video chat.
