The launch night for Kill Your Darlings was crackers. Big shout to everyone who showed up, especially those who travelled further than a South Yorks postcode to be there. It was an overwhelming turnout and a perfect start to the Tramlines weekend. Big Aye Aye to Thornbridge for hooking up the bar and to Heebie Jeebies, Death Rays, Asbo-A-GoGo, Benjamin Hatton and Slick Disco Dixxx for supplying the music. And thanks to EVERYONE who helped put the show together. Big up thy sen.

Steel City’s finest, Toddla T has a new album out on Ninja Tune called Watch Me Dance. I recommend you cop that. Alongside Drop Dead, the Designers Republic, Rob Barber and the rest of the Sheffield graphics/illustration fraternity, I was asked to design a couple of Toddla T-shirts to help illustrate the tracks on the album. I chose BODY GOOD Feat. Timberlee and HOW BEAUTIFUL IT WOULD BE Feat. Passo Wasso & Ms Dynamite.
Layout and concept by the Scoob and Scrap Lover’s of graphic design, Peter & Paul.
I also collaborated with young buck, Danny Beck on the new logo. Standard.
I was recently asked to provide an illustration for Brompton‘s first ever cycling jacket. After visiting the factory I became intrigued by the name and heritage of the company so went to have a look at the Brompton Oratory for inspiration. The Oratory was the view founder, Andrew Ritchie had from his bedroom as he developed the original prototypes in the mid-70s, which is where the name comes from. The Oratory Jacket is both functional and dapper. Details of my illustration can be found on the reflective pop-up storm collar and bamboo fabric lining. Nifty.
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of our Zebra Face book, we’ve teamed up with Belgium’s finest, Toykyo to produce this limited run of porcelain salt and pepper shakers. Visit Toykyo for the lowdown and hold tight for the reissue of the book. Peace.
