Hello again y buenas tardes.
I'm sat here in sunny Buenos Aires waiting for another sweaty hot Christmas, something which I still can't quite understand. The last couple of weeks I've been putting together this set of animals from the Chinese Zodiac and now I've had them printed up into poster form and (personally, by hand!) stitched up some notebooks too. Here's the poster look, on the right there.
Anyway for now these are exclusivamente available in a lovely little shop called Salmon here in Buenos Aires where they look a bit like this ...
... I'll work on UK distribution but in the meantime I thought I might fix some of them up profile pic style and leave them here on this blog post so if your interested feel free to copy paste 'em.
Think of it as an early Christmas present.
Next year's Goat (or Cabra) which is also me, so here's hoping for a good one.
Here's a selection of images I made for the opening credits of the Argentine feature film "El Prisionero Irlandes" (The Irish Prisoner) by Tres Pajaro Films. Done roughly in the period's style they tell the story of the Irish Rebellion against the British of 1798 up to the first failed attempt by the British to invade Argentina in 1806.
Oh, and I'm also in the film, but that's a whole other story!
Hello Peepsicles, long time no...
Anyway, mucho activity to impart since we last spoke but I'll start by with this little note to say you can now get me on Behance. It's the thing to do.
Here's the link:
Ok lots of love bye
So this is it, the very lovely publication that is TIME.
... and if you flick through the pages and happen upon the very nice short by Rahima Hall - Inland there you may well find these done by me and my Bic ...
... and a couple of others as a matter of fact. These two are going to be up on the wall at The Drink Shop & Do for a little while too along with some of other works from the book so you can go and have a look at 'em you know, bigger. Actually I think they're for sale too so you could have one.
Anyway most importantly you should get yourself a copy of the book, and you can HERE. plus there you'll find a bit more of a peak inside. And I really do urge (and I'm not often one for urging) you to get a copy because you will not only be getting yourself a good read but also supporting a really great independent publishers Lazy Gramophone and in turn their happy band of contributors like me.
Yes that's right a joke that doesn't really work in either Spanish or English! (Rana being Frog, Sapo Toad, see..?.....parp) Anyway evidently it's go go go over here cos I've just done this for the new MOOKS reglier 'Draw....' thing. This time it's Draw Futurama, a programme for which I am quite fond. Loads of possibilities but eventually I plumped for this....
Hello. Here's a picture of two lovely chaps looking very proud. They're proud because they've made quite a brilliant film and the really good news is that it's currently doing the rounds so you can go and see it for yourself. It's called Dead Cat as you can probably see and all the details of where it's screening are HERE.
Oh yeah and I done that poster.
So here's the thing, I used to work at what can only be described as 'probably definitely two of the best record shops in all of the world' Flashback Records in London and in order to celebrate International Independent Record Store Day on the Saturday 20th April they asked me to design a badge that they could give out on the day. So I did and this is it ....
And the best part of it is they're FREE! No doubt they'll be quite a buzz down there on the day, loads of amazing RSD stuff on sale and DJs and bands playing and generally a bit of an all day wahoo celebration of flat spinny musical things.
....and they'll be loads of other stuff going on in the other grand independent record shops of London and indeed the world.
p.s. Credit to the very good Ossie Hirst for the badge wording, he'll be there at Essex Road so you can congratulate him in person.
Che, que estas haciendo ahora? Are you living in Buenos Aires? Are you visiting any time soon? You are? Really?! De verdad? Oh ... Well good then, perfecto, because you can pop by this lovely little shop and look at these little notebooks kindly put together for me (and the missus) by the extremely talented Leandro Jacob and being sold EXCLUSIVELY at the very excellent Salmón Tienda: Cabello 3629. Maybe you might even want to buy one.
Up to you.
Not all mine I should point out, just the three in the middle and the one at the back but the other stuffs nice too isn't it look ('Tao' and the one behind 'Sueño' also Leandro's work actually). While we're at they're also the sole stockist (in the whole of our planet world) of whats left of our bags and cards so there's that too. Exclusive indeed. Cheers. Gracias (grassy ass).
Woah there! Nearly forgot to mention, I FOUND MORE COLOURED BIROS! So by way of celebrating and being a bit festive I contributed this to the fine bunch of Grinches at The Mooks: Draw Grinch page. Been following this little website for a while and it always seems to come up trumps with its "Draw..." collections so I figured it was about time I got involved. The previous Draw Calvin and Hobbes is very brills.
