Looking for The Barbican Bootleg

I‘m trying to track down, and willing to buy*, a copy of Frizzi 2 Fulci – The Barbican Bootleg on Beat Records Company of Italy.

I was at the show at the Barbican for Halloween of 2014 and it was a great show.

I’ve been to a few of these kind of things now and for the diversity of music and performance this was probably the best so I’d recommend it if you like this kind of thing and have the chance.

Why am I trying to track down a copy of this specific release and posting it on here I hear you ask?

Well the short answer is because a photo I took on the night was used on the back cover of this release without my knowledge…

I only found out about it when a friend sent me a link to a copy that had just sold on eBay. Seems a few sold on there but I guess, perhaps as the music isn’t fully licensed or something based on the title, and they only seem to sell this CD at live shows.

Welcome.

Hello and welcome to my website.

It struck me looking at this website recently that sometimes the latest post or news item (which would normally sit about here) doesn’t always best explain this website.

So here are a few pieces of my illustration and artwork to get things started (You can click on them for more information about the image/project they are related to)…

The Long Ryders dot com

I‘ve spent a good portion of the past month over at Hathway Creative working on a new website to support the release of the career spanning four CD box set of the band The Long Ryders, which was released last month by Cherry Red Records.

Its been an enjoyable and pretty wide encompassing project and my work has included the creation and launch of a new website, product photography of the set, some work promoting the site and set on social media and also I’ve had a part in designing some videos. Its been good fun too and its always interesting working on a project in a new area. In working on this I think I’ve mostly learned more than I would have liked on the convoluted and somewhat messy issues of music licensing and YouTube and Facebook.

Take a look at the new website at thelongryders.com which will also tell you all you might need to know on the Final Wild Songs box set.

And check out one of the videos here…

The Long Ryders will be touring Europe and the USA later in the year.

Painting

I‘ve been trying to work on some oil paintings of late, here is one that turned out okay I think…

Mengage – Illustrations and Website

It was great to be asked to work with a previous client on on the set up of a brand new project.

Mengage is a UK-based not-for-profit company working with males on health and social issues, providing resources, training, consultancy and practical research-based solutions from both national and international practice, backed by years of experience of practical work with men and boys.

Mengage website illustrationI contributed both the website, logo and some illustrations to the project. The illustrations were produced both to be used on the website itself and in a number of print publications.

I’ve wanted to have the opportunity of placing some illustrations within a website layout for some time, stock images are fine but they can sometimes feel, and be, a little generic and forgettable. I think where the illustrations appear within the new website they do help to give the project and a little more depth and a more unique visual identity. The logo was also produced as a metal badge, cut to shape to help with promotion and identity, it came out really well.

Anyway, click here to visit Mengage, If you are putting a project together, do consider illustration along side stock photography, I may well be biased but I think its an underused option.

Custom Flag Painting

This was a custom design to be hand painted on a flag. As such the design was just a rough sketch, but that said I do quite like how it turned out.

I’ll do my best to get a photo of the completed flag when we get a sunny day where the wind is blowing in the right direction!
