Mt.Hawke ’20th Anniversary’ Board

So stoked to have worked on this limited edition anniversary board in collaboration with Imperial skateboards to celebrate 20 years of Mt.Hawke skatepark going undercover. Boards are a limited edition of 50 @£50 each exclusively available from Mt.hawke skatepark (they can take card orders over the phone but can’t post out, collection only, which may be a slight issue for those not in Cornwall, UK). Anyways this has been my local skatepark for almost 30 years so was a total honor to lend my pens to this! For those not familiar with the park it started of as a strip of tarmac at the end of a country lane with a few ramshackle street obstacles, a vert and a mini ramp, many years later it’s one of the UK finest indoor parks, and still down that twisty country lane!

Some pictures and an update

Just finished a bunch of freelance illustration work this week that hopefully I’ll be able to share very soon. There’s also a good chance I may be able to share an exciting project I worked on for the majority of last year that has a substantial amount of artwork involved. Anyways until then, in the spare hours over the last few weeks i’ve been pottering away on a reworking of ‘The Goatman eats a sandwich’ painting, I rarely go back to a piece but was never happy with the original, he came out ok so can finally call this one done.

Here’s also a logo I did recently for a local music promotions company in Falmouth, Cornwall, UK. Check them out here at their facebook page: Nettlefold Productions

Sawhorse Books Seconds Sale

 

sawhorse-2nds-sale

Standard editions of both ‘Souvenir’ and ‘The Bone Yard Ballet’ are officially out of print, however I am left with a few boxes of slightly damaged stock that I’m selling at a reduced price. All of these are classed as having minor shelf wear, and are still unread editions. In the Bone Yard Ballet’s case there may be the odd scratch when turned to the light, with Souvenir a small imperfection in part of the foil blocking detail. The contents of the book remain in perfect printed condition and are in no way effected. At Sawhorse I always try to maintain the highest standard in the products so simply I cannot sell these as in mint condition.

Editions of ‘Souvenir’ are available form the Sawhorse Big Cartel shop at £4.50 + p&p, ‘The Bone Yard Ballet at £8.00 + p&p.

4 illustrated promotional cards for ‘The Lab’

Just received the printed cards I illustrated for ‘The Labs’ ‘Slow Brew Club’. The brief focussed on moments in human endeavour and achievement in which that person had taken a break to enjoy the slow brew qualities of a damn fine cup of coffee. So we have Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton, the first woman aviator to fly across the Atlantic Amelia Earhart, Neil Armstrong taking his first steps on the moon and Mary Shelley author of Frankenstein.
