Protean Productions

Sorry I've got to draw attention to the digital design skills of the terrifying two-man team Protean Productions (www.ptplondon.com) who on many occasions I've had the privilege of working with these guys (Ronin & Rob P); easy to work with but they don't ramp when it comes to creating dark, chemical, sick artwork... many a DnB sleeve got the PTP custom wrap!

Ain't seen them for a while but I look forward to the next collaboration... whenever, wherever... BRING IT!

Genaside II

This 12" artwork opened quite a few doors for me...
old schoolmates Kris Bones and others I known since early 80's got together to make some dirty beats, I had the job of branding the project 'cause we weren't into posing & smiling for photos (we were young & screwface, so?)

The whole of the 90's I was hoofing my portfolio around the West End with this pic on the front page... not sure how many potential clients I offended or alienated, but hey - it meant a lot to a lot of people... I thank you.


That was a memorable one for many reasons... most importantly for these: you heard the term "Births, Deaths and Marriages"; my son Bailey was born, my best mate Leon died and me & my lovely wife got married.

Well as I was high on the fumes of natural adrenaline, fear, and not eating any of the amazing food that we had made for us on the day, by the end of it I was ready to faint for real... so one day I promise we'll get all our mates who came down to the afterparty that night back to the same venue (Half Moon Function Room, Herne Hill) so we can have a proper knees-up (calling all my DJs: Kris, Rob, Keith, Boogie, Chin) to cap off those dainty memories of that balmy night in June.

Urban Survival

This is one of my proudest achievements. My first published book (ISBN and everything). 300+ pages long, took me 5 months (while still working on other projects), and my first son Bailey was born halfway through it (those all-nighters were killers)... it's dedicated to him and my closest mate Leon 'FatBloke' Dawkins who died earlier that year (R.I.P. me old son).

Still available on Amazon 6 years later, you can still support the cause: Go get it.

Aaliyah (R.I.P.)

This pic got heads open.

Vaughn Bodé

Trust me... if you don't know, then get to know... when I was an aimless daydreaming secondary schoolboy I came across Subway Art (THE Graf Bible) and saw these sad looking lizards cuddling busty babes, then the guy in the Hat? Who are these characters, and where did they come from? Then one day my best mate come into school with this comic... CHEECH WIZARD Volume 1. That was it, I was HOOKED! This guy created this whole cartoon universe and I was in it, "that's what I wanna do!"

Check it out.

Washington M-15

Before Macs and Wacom tablets there was pen & paper... this was the Minefield 12" sleeve for the Washington M-15 project I did in '99.. oldies but goodies.

Ministry mag

This was me taking over the cover of the March '02 issue of Ministry magazine.. looked proper on the shelf in WHSmith, believe..

RWD - Enough Already - Old Ravers

Everyone's got mate's like these... you know the empty champs bottle will have to be wrestled from their cold dead hands... pliers may be required.

RWD - Enough Already - Cruel Britannia

RWD - Enough Already - Jobseekers

Some of you may know I have been in-house illustrator for RWD Magazine for the past 8 years, and just wanted to show off some of my favourite cartoon panels... I must applaud the impressive comedy writing skills of one Danny Walker who regular puts together some wicked pieces for the Enough Already column... keep it up son!

Yes People!


I just peeped my mate Shab's blog and it gave me joke still... so it's time to get something going me thinks...
