My piece, Life, Death and Prizes is a 50 x 70cm giclée print (290gms Hahnemuhle textured) available at £150 (framed)

Go down to see it and a bunch of other really nice skull themed work.

A recent commission looking at the "Toxic" brand of FIFA due to the bribery allegations regarding Qatar 2022 and Blatter's decision to run... again... for FIFA Presidency.


Creative Review Write-up

I am writing on my blog to tell you I wrote on Creative Reviews blog about the Glasgow School of Art Degree Show.

What do you think about... Scottish Independence?

A bit of a call for entries here...
In a slight deviation to my ongoing project "How Do You Feel About... Social Media?" 
I'm asking about Independence instead. Living in London, it's hard to guage the opinions of people as it's not a predominant subject. However, having been back in Scotland recently, it is easy to see the graphic landscape shifting; more and more relevant material the closer it gets, from TV and radio to mugshots of people on Social Networks. 
So, i'm curious to find out. Get in touch with your thoughts and a photo and let me know!

How Do You Feel About... Social Media?

I asked the Creative Director at MTV what he thought about Social Media. Here's what he said...

Illustration pop up and advice for kids!

So the shop and gallery went swimmingly well. T-shirts and prints disappearing in exchange for notes. 
Could have been better, however, but a recurring comment was: 
 "I love your work, but I think it will scare my children!"
But I guess that's the price you pay when you focus your work on making a comment on society. It's dark, scary and cluttered out there kids. Looking at my illustrations will be the least of your worries! 
Still, good fun all round and thanks again to MTV in Camden for hosting it. 
If you'd like to view and/or purchase a print, here's my shop. 


MTV illustration pop up shop.

MTV have asked me to produce a few illustrations and make them into prints for an event they're putting on in their Camden studios. It's been good as it's forced me to get out of the studio and to actually get some prints done for my exceedingly neglected "Shop" on my website. One of the prints available is Brand Spanking Zombies. You should buy it. 


Planes, Trains and Megabuses

Carrying on my sketchbook project; Planes, Trains and Megabuses (i.e. to eleviate boredom on trips) 
This one was actually Aberdeen to Edinburgh, Zoé posing gracefully on an otherwise deserted train. 
Back to London at the weekend, more reportage mayhem to ensue! 


Illustration on the beach

This week, for my 31st birthday, I will be going on my holidays back to the grey of my home town, Aberdeen. Renowned for being.... well..... grey.
Last time we went to the beach I did this drawing.
I'm updating the website (www.wantsome.co) with some new work at the moment, so look back soon and feel free to get in touch regardless of my trip up North as i'll still be working on some projects.


Poetry & Illustration

A lovely mix and collaboration from two brains on the irony of the everyday and the sinister darker side of life. Check out the work so far and hopefully you'll enjoy.


Live Drawing Illustrations

In a rare and very enjoyable happening, I was given a brief to venture into the House of Parliament to research into creating a poster by taking part and doing some "live drawings" reportage style. It's been a while since i've done anything like this. Almost felt like I was back in Art School, sitting on a freezing pavement in the snow, people watching and drawing; only because it was SO "Art School" to do shit like that. But this was great. Firstly it was warm, and it was a great atmosphere full of activist types and some great debate. Now onto the poster. All those in favour say "Aye"!


Follow Frank illustration

New illustration "Follow Frank" to be featured in a publication shortly. Also going to do a screen print of it too which I will put on the shop as a limited edition.
