Hello continental geography fans, for a little while now I’ve been meaning to update the ‘Mysterious Africa’ print. There’s a new country in the continent of Africa; ‘South Sudan’. And along with the disputed territory of ‘Western Sahara’, it’s been added to the completely new and re-drawn map. Countries are now more proportional and near their actual shape and size, while still being decorative as a whole.
Coming soon to the webshop.
Special offer for all you in the Antipodes or Asia. Fresh outta Art Park Australia.
The classic Fuckin’ Hell It’s Fuckin’ Fucked T-shirt. Advertise your antipathy. Clothe one of the rag draped beggars you call ‘boyfriend’ or ‘husband’. Hell, use it as a pillow-case for all I care.

Here’s some more traditional ink style drawings of different imagined walls of pin-ups and posters. It all counts as research work toward the show in August.
Apologies to John Pasche
What’s wrong – too ‘Rock n’ Roll’ for you?

As always… Your feedback, comments, criticisms are welcome…
It’s all been going a little off the rails in my show ideas. Crazier and crazier reticulation experiments and photographing everything down a long gold tube. It feels a bit like it might be the graphics equivalent of music sampling.
As always, your responses and thoughts are welcome…
Your feedback is greatly appreciated…

Pin-ups and painted ladies…
Trying to get the practical, stylistic and theoretical aspects worked out. A long way to go…
Just doing some experiments with reticulation on old erotic photos plus hand brushed and re-drawn details… is it worth anything?
Last night I rushed from the house at dusk wearing just a T-shirt on my top half. I was seething with heat and warm right through. The setting sun was the deepest brightest red you can imagine. Pure and terrible. I was hunting rabbits across the field. I was running on all fours, ass naked, with my credit card in one hand and my mobile phone in the other. I didn’t catch any, but my girlfriend did and was happily feeding a baby rabbit to a human baby who was happy to gum the soft flesh like a juicy scrap of warm greasy chicken. I held the body of a tiny rabbit in my hand and could easily peel away the skin and get to the nourishing flesh beneath. I raised the skinned corpse to my nose and smelt nothing.
Here’s some ideas and rough posters I’ve been working on for my new solo show at Din Nye Ven, Copenhagen in August…
I would like to make a formal announcement of an exhibition.

I have a show booked. It’s going to be amazing. More details forthcoming but it’s in CPH and will start around Saturday 18th August at ‘Din Nye Ven’ (which means Your New Friend) cafe bar.
And now advertising? You sell-out Embryo Boy! I’m disgusted…
I really like the way this turned out! In stock mid-June.

I did this for the NY Times a while ago. I like it anyway.

So here’s some pictures of the ‘Crests on Request’ day at Pick Me Up 2012. I’m tired, and my drawing arm is black and blue. Thanks to the amazing assistants who helped me take bookings, and thanks to Pick Me Up for asking me. Sorry if your photo isn’t here, I was so busy I forgot to photograph some people.
Yo! Heraldry Fans. Yeah!
All day (from 2pm) and all night long (until 9pm) at night on Thursday 29th March 2012
NOTE: Entrance is on Victoria Embankment at the lower level – not at the Strand entrance. Nearest tubes are Temple and Embankment.
I will be appearing LIVE (like Rock n’ Roll) and drawing your family crest for you, in whatever way I damn well please. We’ll be concentrating on reality, fun and the future and disregarding your family’s chequered past as vagabonds, weasel hustlers, dung polishers, hog warblers and royalists.
It’s free! Kind of. You’ll get a crest for free. You have to pay £6 or £8 (depending on whether you are middle class or upper class) to get into the whole Pick Me Up event. But then you get to see a heap of exhibitions by great people, and also swan about in the grand buildings etc fantasising about being an aristocrat or tax collector. There will be cappuccino for those with pocket money. Also, I’ll be selling signed posters in the shop and a new book specially published for the event. Woop Woop.

Also! NEW BOOK! Specially for the event. 20 copies only. From the shop at the event. £4.50
Some reprints, some classics, some new ones – OUT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just had these new paper napkins made which have the words:
“IDEA! What about paper napkins with ideas already printed on them ? !”
already printed on in perfect biro blue ink.
And they sold out immediately! Waiting for the re-print now!

I need a collaborator who likes making films. I can’t make good ones on my own. I have some ideas but I’m open to anything. We would work on ideas together. You might have skills in acting, editing, animation, puppets or just making stuff up. Whatever. You must have time and energy.
I drew this 4 frame picture below in 30 mins in front of a live audience on the internet yesterday against another illustrator from London. That’s SEVEN minutes per drawing. It was a graphic battle! The theme was ‘A Christmas Nightmare’. Each drawing is based on a quote from French existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre.
