Festival Essentials

With Glastonbury this weekend, Festival season is officially with us, so I thought I’d put together a quick list of what I feel is my personal survival kit after twenty odd years of making it a summer habit (it started for me with Reading 94′). Now this list will overlap with the countless festival guides […]

Taking another bite out of the apple.

This is the fourth time that I’ve been lucky enough to visit New York, the town named twice, and doesn’t get much sleep. Each time, it’s that little bit more familiar, which in its own way makes there even more to discover. I think all cities of a certain size have this ever unfolding sensation, […]

Getting Down the Garonne

As an early Summer break, my wife and I thought it would be worth taking a chill week off and visiting France. Despite having traveled to a fair few far flung places, I’d not been to France before, and felt it was high time to dredge up my pigeon language skills and bag a baguette. […]

Summer Learning…

Summer Learning…

What I learnt this summer… The summer is never as long as you think it will be. Shorts are de rigur for hot days spent at a desk. Shorts should not be above the knee, unless you are a Scout or can pull it off (I’ve certainly tried but my pins / buns don’t quite […]

Trwbador Breakthrough 7 inch single

I’ve been working with Trwbador for a few years now, and when they asked if I’d design a 7 inch cover for their new single ‘Breakthrough’ I jumped at the chance. I have been working with overlapped geometric forms for a while, it’s something I enjoy working with, and this also informed elements of the […]

SXSW Day 6. Johnny 2 gigs

SXSW Day 6. Johnny 2 gigs

I got back into the British music embassy a bit later than expected (it’s taking me a lot longer to get places than  I think it should) but just in time to meet a Canadian publicist and Australian design agency director at a speed networking event. 2pm quickly comes around and the venue is packed […]

SXSW Day 5. Late Pancakes, Springs and Welsh Music in a church

SXSW Day 5. Late Pancakes, Springs and Welsh Music in a church

I’m hoping that my body clock and sleeping patterns are so thrown up and sideways right now, that when I get back to the UK, I’ll sleep so well I’ll be right as rain for work Monday morning. Stranger things have happened. Which is how I had a 2pm breakfast (despite waking at 9am) in […]

SXSW Day 4. Mary, Meetings, Cameras, Fans & Tradegy

SXSW Day 4. Mary, Meetings, Cameras, Fans & Tradegy

South by takes over this town, for good and not. It clearly brings an overwhelming focus and celebration of creativity to the town and generates a huge level of excitement and revenue, but also it seems a strain on the area and it’s resources. Initially I couldn’t make it to town for a networking breakfast […]

SXSW Day2 . Old Aquaintences, Tequila and Busses

SXSW Day2 . Old Aquaintences, Tequila and Busses

So, although I intended to get an early night, I couldn’t get to sleep until 2 am then woke up again at 4 until finally passing out at about 7. I’m not used to insomnia and pulling myself out of bed at 11am was a struggle. I don’t normally get jet lag going back in […]

My Analogue Boxes

Cameralamadindong Over the years, I’ve managed to build up a fair sized collection of things. Stemming from an innate inability to let go of ‘stuff’, I continuously fail to live the zen-like lifestyle I like to think I aspire to. whether it’s badges, retro games consoles (and every version of street fighter two I can […]

Fresh porcini mushroom pasta recipe

It’s autumn again, and that means the hills and woods are alive with fungus! One of the most sought after cooking mushrooms are Porcini’s, or ‘Ceps’. I first encountered fresh porcini’s last summer while staying near lake Como in Northern Italy, where I ate the most amazing simple dish of mushroom spaghetti , seemingly cooked […]

The first of the platform evenings was looking at the idea that ‘Everyone is a photographer now’. The main focus was around the work and a presentation by photojournalist Matt Dunham, who works […]

As part of the Arthouse co-op video challenge, I made this during my breif visit to New York on my route down to Virginia to visit my parents…
