Ace Poster No. 10 – Other Peoples Work…

Particle



























So it’s cold as hell. alright, it can’t be cold as hell but it’s cold as hell if it were to be the opposite of hot.

This poster is super winter- the blue, hair like overlay and the super sleek type makes this real nice, like, real nice…

The band PARTICLE, are proving a little elusive, help? good art gives atleast a 75% chance they are going to be rad!

It’s by US & THEM (GP, Tumblr), a collective, who are” just trying to stay stoked”, which could now be the new motto which we should all abide by!

I went to see Johnny Foreigner last night at KCLSU, KCLSU has cheap-ish beer. Happy. Anyway, after waking late for work, due to said beer, I must add that TALONS (Twitter) BSM fiends that they are, were totally mindblowing! reminded me of Mogwai, not as loud, a little, not Mogwai-Lite by any stretch of the imagination but the drummer was sort of more Converge influenced… I liked it, a lot.

Go see, buy records! Back to product photography and catalogues for me today…

Johnny Foreigner – Clwb Ifor Bach – 6th Feb 2010

Johnny Foreigner - Clwb Ifor Bach

Johnny Foreigner - Clwb Ifor Bach

If you’ve been keeping up, you may have noted I have had no internet, hense rendering my rather hardworking computer rather obsolete so I have taken to drawing a little more… in an effort to make my work a little more individual. The quality of this was lost as I had no scanner so had to photograph and edit in illustrator, hopefully, with a good chance I’ll be able to get it scanned in cause i’m real proud of it!

The idea originated from firstly, the book I had just finished, mentioned previously, written by shute and called On The Beach, it deals with the end of the world and peoples ability to deal with, relish and end their last days on earth. Secondly, on their first EP the guys and girl in Johnny Foreigner have an ace tune called, you guessed it, Suicide Pact, Yeah?

I’ve got a few little drawings that have now become more about the book than anything and they will probably surface once i get my scanner sorted!

oh yeah, and go to the show. they’re good. if they get their gin!

uh-oh spaghetti-oh

so firstly, i don’t have the internet at home yet due to Virgin being absolute money grabbing liars and signing me into a contract before telling me EXACTLY when we could’ve got it installed, Please, don’t ask me TWO preferred install dates and THEN give me adate, not only 8 days after, but on a weekday, now, what with me selecting two saturday installation days as my preference, do you think that I am free or have an inclination to be arounfd on a tuesday morning, NO! I have a job, that is also a little bit of a mute point when I mention that after booking my installation on the 7/8th of January, they turned around to tell me that I can’t have it installed until the 16th February. Brilliant, whilst that IS my sister’s Birthday, the combination of her living about 250 miles away, the fact she has broadband already and that it’s a pretty shit present (me getting broadband) means that it is of no consolation you absolutely backward, typically british company. Branson. I’m coming for you and your fibre optic broadband…

christ. I also mentioned that I now have a job. A turn up for the books i’d say… That kinda means, coupled with the fact I dont have the internet, that I can’t really show you much of my artwork… well, maybe one I did for a show in clwb with Johnny Foreigner which is hand drawn as i’m going to attempt to push myself in new ways this year…

Coming soon, Caesar’s Rome’s artwork for their album. Hopefully, if Jon and the boys will let me, I’ll be able to give a sneaky peak of atleast some of it on here, my blog.

Secondly, I’ve done a lot of work with BARELY REGAL records… super sound mates o’ mine who are about to start doing VERY good things back in Cardiff. lookout for more work from me, on them.

peace.

oh yeah.

Happy New Years!

Better late than never…
