So this is a prime example of how the Kdu can work advantageously. Last year, the Kdu graciously curated a Hennessy artist collaboration bottle between myself and DJ Steve Aoki. Our collaboration was quite positive and we got along well enough to make a music video together for the first single off his new album. Shot just months after finishing Hennessy artwork, we spent the remaining months finishing the design and animation here at Laundry! The moral is it is as much about making dynamic work as it is about being collaborative and not an asshole to foster further collaborations.

Type.Face / Illustration / Colour print

Portrait & mixed Type is the outline for this project, in a layout that worked well as a composition of colour / content.

A project that is a personal challenge and one that will be ongoing as a small series.

Without giving away to much detail of the specific background to the series, it is to have a bolder message as the overall theme.

The above image was a case study that started in digital and progressed to be more analog in practice with the result being a very good healthy balance of the two combined.

Analog + Digital Graffiti / Type / Texture

The texture that I was keen to execute as a digital visual, was a simulated rough surface that has been sprayed with aerosol. With this in mind, I always seek to put together designs that have multiple uses across the board.

Starting off with a complex looking but basic layout as a pen background, the type and layer fade is all the project needed.

First phase was a template with the letters cut out of card. Initially wanting to do a painted type print, the paint was an incorrect mix and it looked wack.

Second was a mock up on cartridge paper to check the composition. The cut letters were then scanned, including the texture, and the handwriting. The final draft was put together in layers, with colour content added for the aerosol look and minor special effects. It would have been cool to use canned paint for the entire piece, nevertheless an enjoyable project and one to push forward.

‘Lacerate Media’ / Texture / Art

As a reflection of last months site journal post, the 3 images here are the test pieces.

They are mixed method pieces, with the final image being the preferred quality of finish.

As design is a test of ability, the main grind is in finding the easiest and most effective way to do something that is usually a complicated process. My concern for when the storefront is live is that there are only new works available and not something that has been generally ripped off or repeated by other artists previously. The third Razors edge is the first store instalment, using my own stock image and elements. Printing is currently external, although seeking to upscale asap and progress with prints for solo shows. Editorial is of great interest, so pushing to learn more in this area also.

Two recent illustrations.

This one was for the family and loved ones of a close friend who just passed away. (Rest in Peace Parris McNeal)


This one was for another friend, who is alive and well I might add. Entertainment reporter Daryl Archie.

‘Don’t need NO Devil dust’ / Ian Brown / Mixed method / Experimental Portfolio

In my opinion one of the greatest Great British singer-songwriters of all time.

Ok, so many may disagree. Whatever. This guy has proved himself to be one of the most influential artists in recent years. From a true working class family, to the lead vocalist of  The Stone Roses, he has a celebrated history of perfect lyrics and bold collaborations ( personal artistic favs : UNKLE  / ADIDAS / BAPE ) which has seen him rise to the top of the ranks. This does not come easy. A solid solo career setting himself aside from the usual suspects in terms of visual art & video appeal, content instruments, tight, challenging lyrics and awesome depth of character has earned him the aforementioned status.

Having seen him perform, I would say he offers a wise expression as opposed to glitter ball stage gimmicks. This gives him an awesome presence. And of course he is renowned for saying that he needs ‘no devil dust’ for his confidence. Mr Brown, a true performer, I salute you.
