If 2008 belongs to The Dark Knight (which in my opinion it definitely does) than 2009 will surely belong to these guys I'm super excited about this movie - the video journals found here are well worth checking out.

Free love

This one's on me..(There is no such thing as an easy relationship)


Goodbye spring... hello summer!

Hilter (unfortunately) did have some good design..

Onions appeared in our garden..

I was photographed for a Carling ad (ironic to the maxxx)..

No so...

My little slice of happiness, hard at work..

Here's a few photos and stories from the past few months..

Long time no see

So, the world keeps on turning whether i blog or not. Its been a crazy busy few months since my last blast of blogging, with a new job to keep me occupied and a girl of epic fantasticness to spend my spare moments with. For those not in the know, by day i work for the behemoth that is Linney Design, part of the ubiquitous Linney Group. You like ma tree? Swaz made it spin. Anyhow, its a huge design agency covering pretty much everything and in the 4 short months ive been there ive been exposed to amazing and wonderful things. I was welcome into the creative team and given my own client to creatively direct, quite a coop for a sprat like me. That client is Monster Energy Drinks, more info on them can be found here. Never a more decent group of people have i met, and im stoked to be joining them at Download festival this coming weekend - nice one guys!

(thats me far right enjoying a day out with one of the sampling teams)

Taste See The Rainbow

Am i the only one who missed the boat with the Skittles 'Touch' Ad? recently it was announced that it was the most-watched TV/Video spot of 2007!

Here it is..

Most companies would freak out at an agency pitch suggesting that their product be linked to a life of misery - but that’s exactly what happened - the poor, beleagured man with the Midas-Skittles touch - this is totally counter-intuitive to most industry thinking.

Their latest is not quite as good, but still awesome compared to most.
It’s called “PiƱata”...

"Artforms of Nature"

Ernst Haeckel and his assistant Nicolaus von Miclucho-Maclay, photographed in the Canary Islands in 1866

Today i stumbled across the outstanding work of Ernst Haeckel.. an eminent German biologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor and artist. Ernst Haeckel discovered, described and named thousands of new species, mapped a genealogical tree relating all life forms, and coined many terms in biology, including phylum, phylogeny, ecology and the kingdom Protista. Busy man!

The published artwork of Haeckel includes over 100 detailed, multi-colour illustrations of animals and sea creatures: - Kunstformen der Natur "Artforms of Nature"

"Haeckel's literary output was extensive, working as a professor at the University of Jena for 47 years, and even at the time of the celebration of his sixtieth birthday at Jena in 1894, Haeckel had produced 42 works with nearly 13,000 pages, besides numerous scientific memoirs and illustrations."

He even coined the term 'First World War'. Outstanding. Here's some of my picks of his beautiful work..

Gerry Judah

Gerry Judah is wack!

In the last twenty years he has built a reputation for innovative designs for films, television, theatre, museums and spectacular public installations for many clients - more recently returning to his fine art roots. Go to his website now and watch the 9 minute film. Outstanding.

I often used to wonder who read blogs, let alone who wrote them.. now i find myself doing both i love it, constantly inspired and up to date with the goings on of the creative world (well at least that that makes it online) Here is a graph showing the traffic of this modest blog... Ive never had lofty expectations for it, infact the idea that someone wants to see what ive posted is quite odd - but very heartwarming. To those who've stopped by, and especially to those who check back often - big thanks.

Biggest blogging related success so far has to be the feeling i got the other day when exploring one of my long-held design heros (Brian Ewing) site and behold there in his 'them' list appeared my very own blog! stoked 100%.


My friend Dan just set up a tidy little site for his photography..about time dan! Very neat and crisp, great stuff.
