Joby's website

This is my mate Joby and his mate Tigger. Joby is one of the best signwriters in the country, taught the proper way by a man who was taught by a man who was taught by a man, back into the infinity that is folk art history. He's also a brilliant fairground designer, restorer and painter. Anyway, enough of that - I designed him a website, so check it out here.
I also made him this loony postcard to advertise the site's launch.

Tripped out, yet again

This is the front and back of a T shirt design I did for The Trip Out, a great 60s/70s bike/car/music weekender in Bedfordshire. The next one will be next September - I'm working on the artwork now!
This year I did stickers, T shirts, showcards and various bits and pieces for them, and they also used the logo to make leather keyrings and other goodies.

A spoonful of sugar…

I've just made this CD EP cover for Ma Polaine's Great Decline. I can't remember what advert the image was from now, but it's a fantastic drawing of invented machinery! Probably bile pills or some other revoltingly-named mystery remedy.

The machine for Business, Pleasure or Sport

This is the first of a number of vintage style adverts and posters I'm making for The Black Douglas Motorcycle Co., who are in the process of producing these fantastic bikes based on early 20s design but with modern engines for those who like all the thrill of biking, without the thrill of breaking down and pushing it along a muddy hard shoulder in the rain looking for the nut that fell off.

Fairground fun

Alongside my other work, I'm constantly working for the fantastic Carters Steam Fair, the largest vintage travelling funfair in the world. I deal with their posters, flyers, website, adverts and other bits and pieces they need as the season runs through. They're great to work with, and have become true friends - and they're some of the most hard-working people I have ever known. It puts my sitting-on-the-sofa-gazing-out-of-the-window job to shame!
If you're anywhere near Holyport this weekend, get down there!
