D*Dog Jacket - 24.10.2012
My good friends Chaz and Bob of The London Police asked if I’d create a dog jacket as part of their show ‘For Dogs sake’ at Corey Helford Gallery… it’s not a request I’ve had before and as we run deep I was happy to oblige… I made this jacket from fake fur and ostrich skin which was grafted together then painted with various dog inspired tattoo artworks, once wrapped round your chosen mutt (so long as it’s a black dog) it gives the impression that you’ve shaved and tattooed your canine companion… I hear tattoos are very popular, i’m hoping they become popular again on pets, it only seems right.

Vault… - 01.10.2012
These screens had been buried deep in the vault, everyone has skeletons in their closet these show some ghosts of the past…
Rebels Alliance - 26.09.2012
I’m very proud to announce the formation and partnership of Rebels Alliance. Its been a long time in the works and longer in mind, but I believe well worth the wait, more so for the involvement of old friends Steve Boots and Sam Standfast.
I met Sam many years ago at one of my show openings and we’ve remained friends ever since, Sam is one of the guys that seems ageless, but equally has been around forever, he’s collected art for the best part of 50 years and has brought and sold some incredible works in his time, this coupled with his love of clothing, motor vehicles and in particular motorcycles, instantly bonded our friendship and made him the perfect partner in this new journey.These are early days for Rebels, our first steps, but we’re excited in getting it up to speed with the throttle jammed fully open. As well as Sam and mutual brethren Boots, I will be regularly posting random images of things that I see on my travels and and am doing outside of my artwork, I will endeavor to make this at least weekly, I also have the keys to the Twitter feed, and whilst I have no idea how to drive the thing, be warned I might be infrequently rambling. Lastly Rebels Alliance is greater than the sum of it’s parts, friends will be invited to contribute and become members, so expect collaborations with fellow artists.D
