A Sailor Lost Around The Earth

A few posters to show and tell, the first being for Danish Italian band Valerian Swing.

This was a really quick turnover, which is always nice. Also, always fun to work on anything with a slight nautical slant, which their album 'A Sailor Lost Around The Earth' obviously possesses.

Next up is a poster for the legendary Six Organs of Admittance for his show at everyone's favourite small Northern venue, the Brudenell Social Club.

My brother's solo act umber is playing this show too, so all the more reason to come along and see a great show. I also recently wrote and recorded a song with him in under two hours, which you can hear here.

Fingers crossed I can free up some time to print these, as I think the design is something that would appeal to Six Organs fans and to people who like pastel colours, elks and winding rivers to mystical temples...

And finally my poster for the Art for Blind Records all-dayer at the Temple Works in Leeds.

The design is of the Temple Works in Leeds, where the gig is taking place. The building is grade 1 listed and over the years has been host to a number of gigs, exhibitions, workshops, etc.

Ceolchoirm promises to be an incredible day of DIY goodness, featuring a wealth of awesome punk bands, cheap vegan grub and local cheap drinks. Not much more one could ask for really... Go to the website for details and put it in your diary.

The Crawl

Here are some pictures from this past weekend's Poster Roast at Camden Crawl. The weekend was amazing (as expected) and great to hang out with all the poster wieners again.

My posters [I Like Trains / The Black Keys / Wolf Parade] sat in between Drew Millward's and Diego Mena's.

L - R :: Andy [Tape Ears], Tom Lacey and Luke Drozd.

Bobby [Telegramme]

Some dudes checking out Kate Prior, Graham [Army of Cats] Pilling and Adam Pobiak's fine craftswoman / craftsman-ship.

I forgot to get any pictures of the collaborative poster, which was screen-printed live by The Positive Press but will show & tell when I see a shot.

Big thanks to Mr. and Mrs. White at We Three Club who put the whole thing together and it all ran so smooth and as ever, was lots of fun.

Whilst I was at the Roast an old friend dropped by, which was obviously great to see him but also because he brought along some business cards that I designed for him.

We also discussed the possibility of creating moustachioed characters / objects / anything to be included across the site, with the addition being this duck:

So, lots of fun things to look forward to soon.
