WELCOME TO THE VIRTUAL CITY
This series of four images was produced for my Camberwell degree show. They illustrate a JG Ballard article entitled Welcome to the Virtual City, which dealt with the idea of traditional urban centres being redundant as creative places compared to the vital, relevant suburbs. I was heavily influenced by the aesthetics of the internet at the turn of the millennium.
£100 set of 4
This image was inspired by a form of foretelling the future involving listening to stomach sounds. The original was part of the Divination group show at Wah Nails, Dalston.

i did THE SWIM, and defo didn't wear a wetsuit because i'm a man, and it was fun. the weather in bournemouth was a dream, even though me and my pal amy's fetching british heart foundation swimming caps resulted in tan/burn lines that resembled different flavours of supermarket teddybear face processed meat. thanks donors!
YCN are doing an awesome 'world cup moments' mural at the moment (above photos from their FLICKR: pat bradbury, dan woodger, paul layzell, joe baglow.) love the way it's looking and am excited to say i'll be watching probably my first entire football match since i was a pre-teen - germany vs argentina on saturday - then contributing.
finally, a couple of nice mentions: katie asked me some questions for NOTHING BAD, and CONCRETE HERMIT have done a roundup of the camberwell degree show. don't know how i managed to miss karin soderquist's work but i'm gonna investigate it asap. incidentally i'm certain anyone reading this is as sick of those ballard collages as i am but DON'T WORRY, i'll be updating with loads of new stuff soon. NOT LONG NOW TIL SAVE OUR SOULS!!!!!!!!

illustrations i did to accompany a jg ballard article about suburbia being a more vital and relevant place than city centres. the originals are mixed media collages and i was influenced by internet graphics as befitted the content. you can see these at the CAMBERWELL SUMMER SHOW, starting this weekend!!

here are some lairy disposable tourist shots from berlin a couple of months ago. we ate a lot of currywurst and chips and saw lots of good stuff too - among the illustration/graphics-related highlights were the MOTTO and DO YOU READ ME? shops (would defo like to return to them when i'm (hypothetically) not destitute).
ps if you fancy any featured pals, they're all talented illustrators and graphic designers probably in imminent need of employment. jus sayin.
pps PLEASE SPONSOR ME! not entirely sure why i chose to attempt this foolhardy feat at this rather crucial point and when everyone i know has spent the last remnants of their last student loan on dodgy print jobs but i'm just mental like that!!!!!!!!!! and it's for a good cause.
ppps you can follow me on BLOGLOVIN'.

here's a bit of recent work - the totally on grossly patriotic (i bought a mars bar in the form of an england flag the other day and i'm kind of worried i'm not gonna be allowed back over the border to check out the GSA and ECA degree shows this weekend) trend, mass-produced RISOGRAPH prints were part of my project about my relationship with FOOTIE, and the other thing is a mock up of an illustration for a book cover for ali smith's THE ACCIDENTAL.
