As part of the NCMC2018 – The Nordic Cycle Messenger Championships to you… I did the patch design and logo for the Alleymazing Saturday Night Alleycat race.

Hola! The world can be shitty place, but can you believe that who you LOVE can also mean that you get treated all shitty? It’s ridiculous. My good friend Allan Shaw runs a LGBTQ advocacy organisation powered by cycling called ‘Gay’s Okay’.
In his own words: :
“… Gay’s Okay is a small cycling apparel brand with a big, positive, empowering message: that our cycling community welcomes those of all sexual and gender identities, that we are here to change bad attitudes and celebrate our diversity from the grassroots up, while supporting organisations and events that work hard for equal rights and against discrimination. It is with pride that for every item purchased we donate a portion of the profits to a range of LGBTQ+ organisations and cycling events that promote full inclusion.These include; Outright International, an international organisation that addresses human rights violations and abuses against LGBTQ+ people, and Rainbow Railroad, an organisation that helps LGBTQ+ people escape violence and persecution in their home countries and seek asylum…”
It’s a true honour to be allowed to make graphics for Gay’s OK’s latest project – ‘Queer Ally’.

I did this art event where I drew a ‘Cosmic Manifestation’ of their breasts or penis as a kind of one-on-one performance. It was inspired/stolen from Ken Kagami’s similar works. It was interesting because in retrospect I wish I’d offered to draw women’s genitals as well instead of their breasts. It seemed like a lopsided concept to do it the way I did. Many thanks to all that played along.
After a somewhat ridiculous design process of making about 90 ideas drawn on silver takeaway container lids – see here – I settled on 5 designs and got them printed.
I used to do a lot of work about ‘ The Environment’ – but then the dogma, the politics and the psychology got the better of me. It’s not the job of artists to save the world it’s a job for everyone together. And people don’t like being together – it’s an anathema to their individuality.
I recently got asked to sum all this up in a talk at a Royal College of Art. Here are the slides.
Medicom in Japan was the driving force behind the vinyl toy collectible craze. They also make soft goods under the name Fabrick. They also like to call me Jordy Barton. I like that. It sounds regal. Hmmm. I painted this repeat design on the theme of plumbing for them. It was quite a challenge to get a perfect repeat of watercolour tones and colours.
And now… I’ve been at the watercolour again to make this fine wedding outfit for the person who’s shit is always getting bust.

At Black Humours Japan we have had the same swingtag and neck label for years. And after looking at options I think the neck label will stay the same – the swing tag is up for a change though.
One of my illustrations from the New York Times last year was picked out as being one of the best out of thousands in 2017. This major honour is something I’m really happy about!
If you liked the illustration you can also hang it on your wall and support my work in 2018. Order the poster sized Giclee print on museum quality paper from my shop.

As part of a project to mark 40 years since the original ‘release’, a group of graphic art types like myself got asked to ‘remake’ Linder Sterling and Malcolm Garrett’s original cover art. As you can see I got my Y-fronts in a big old panty twist.
It also got featured in my fave commie-liberal rag.
I made these cool stickers for Omnium Cargo – the world’s best bike company.

AlleyMouse racers undertake a ‘medical experiment’ and grow a human ear on their backs at one checkpoint.
In Japan they have this Rock Festival called Arabaki. I did one of the T-shirts and it’s Tie-Dye! I’m going to follow the Grateful Dead on tour in it innit. Click the link and scroll all the way to the bottom.
Limited edition screenprints officially authorised by the original artist (or their moneygrubbing heirs and business associates). You know I love to joke around.

I’m here to help. My shop had it’s html and css in a right old panty twist. Now it is healed and it works again. Hallelujah Karl Marxism.
I made the logogram for this new organisation which does collaborative projects to improve society and help people.
“…WeAreOne is an emerging movement aimed at addressing social injustice. We aim to bring together individuals, groups and organisations from humanitarian, corporate and creative sectors, to collaborate on developing innovative programs which inspire and bring about positive change and facilitate skill sharing opportunities. Creating environments where Solidarity is not just a good intention …..but instead it becomes a part of daily life…”

So… I did these patches for this jacket for this company. And then they made the jacket so people can buy the jacket and wear the jacket. more info
