Squirreling Away

September 21, 2013

Here’s another poster for an event at the Vic: this one a second-hand CD sale. The practical part of me hopes there aren’t too many bargains, the music fan in me will be there all afternoon.

AM Exhibiting

August 24, 2013

Exciting news! To tie in with the Oxfam fundraiser at the Victoria on 7th September, for which I drew a new poster, I’ll be displaying a selection of my previous gig artwork on the walls of the Barn.

I’ll have quality new prints of posters for gigs by local and touring bands around Herts and elsewhere, including Jeffrey Lewis, the Primitives, the Astronauts, Tubelord, the October Game, and my series of cartoon animals drawn for Live Circuit.

For anyone who can’t make the gig on the Saturday, the exhibition will be open from the evening of Thursday 5th, and I’ll have prints, postcards and comics for sale.

Thanks to Ganda Media for a great job on the prints!

Chop chop!

Roll up for a fundraising gig in aid of Oxfam at the Victoria Barn, with music from sultry rockabilly voodoo blues eccentrics the Finger Choppers, an acoustic set from indie pop lovelies the Metatrons, and a new duo named A Work In Progress… and an exhibition of my own work! Full details TBA, but in the meantime here’s a poster inspired by recent sightings of local wildlife and passing commuters.

Old hat new hat

Colour version of a flyer I was asked to draw for the Astronauts, one of a weekend full of gigs organised by Rhythms of the World in place of the festival this year. Great line-up too!

Catching up on recent illustration, here’s a poster for Hey! Fever no. 2, which took place last month in Brighton. A good time was had by all, and I especially enjoyed the Holy Orders, who travelled all the way from Hull and delivered a storming set.

Toytown feeling

Another new gig poster, this one for the reformed local stalwarts Scum of Toytown. Idea pinched, with permission, from a friend’s discussion of unwieldy stagewear!

Here’s a poster for a special new night from Cupboard Music, under the banner ‘Hey! Fever’; hence, some people saying ‘hey!’ (they may be greeting each other or arguing). Influences: classical pose and modern club flyer colour. Plus balloons. It’s not a party if it doesn’t have balloons.

Jump Around

August 12, 2012

A quick gig poster with a variation on previous themes for the Astronauts; this fellow may be jumping for joy or spreading his arms for mercy, you decide. The band has a dangerous sound like that. The gig should be a good one, it’s being filmed for a future release and accompanied with projections from the guys behind the lights at the ‘Psychedelic Sunday’ nights of old. And it’s only £2 before 8.30 if you print this off and take it with you!

Impossible Astronauts

July 30, 2012

The Astronauts have a new release out today, it’s a split album with the Destructors and the artwork duties have been taken on by several illustrators, each contributing an image to accompany a song. I’ve not seen the final booklet yet but I’ve got a piece as has Paul Stapleton of Pog and BN1 fame and of many other bands and comics. This one with the 1970s comic look / colour scheme has a little scamp concentrating on something impossible, he’s either levitating or just jumping up and down…

The album, called ‘One Wave’ is available from itunes, Amazon, at gigs or to listen to on Spotify.
