Carbon Dating

Hello my friends. Come in and get warm.

So its come to my attention that my blog posts of late have been on the minimal side in terms of content. Well, just to prove that I am in fact a real human being, here are a few things that I currently love:

Jon Stanley Austin

This is my friend from my Leeds College of Music days who has a little blog and has just created some amazing 3D photography, which I pretty much can't get enough of!

100 Abandoned Houses

My next obsession is a fantastic website called 100 Abandoned Houses. Its pretty much what it says on the tin, as a chap called Kevin Bauman has gone around Detroit photographing derelict and dilapidated houses and the results are beautifully depressing / depressingly beautiful.

Musically i've been enjoying plenty of things as of late but my cream of the crop award has to go to Rilo Kiley's album The Execution of All Things. This is something of a pop masterpiece but masked in a really cool indie fashion and yes, I am aware that i'm behind the times but better late than never, yeah?

So thanks for listening to my ramblings, I think I may try and do this more often... Oh and I suppose I should also show you this poster I just finished for my budsky Sam Isaac. If you are unaware, Sam Isaac (the man / the band) is breaking up! Well, he's taking some time off doing music, which is sad, sad news...

Over the past 3 years I've known Sam he has become a friend instead of a client. We hang out, play gigs together, chat on the phone, its lovely. If you haven't heard his music then you really should go and do that as he creates the most gorgeous, honest, warm pop music.

So it'll be sad to say ta ta but I hope to make it to one of these shows... and maybe you should too.

'So let's just say, so long'.

His Master's Voice

Have you heard the Monsters of Folk album? Well, its a bit of a grower but after some listens its pretty darned nifty!

Anyways, why I've really dropped by is to tell you about a t-shirt I just done for Luxembourg based record label Lili Is Pi. Just a couple of colours, a whole lotta love and E.T. They should be available through their website soon enough.

Catch you on the flipside!

Chips Ahoy!

Good day people of Planet Earth. Quick update on things...

I have finished my inventorying and filled my Big Cartel shop with lots of goodies. Some things I have less of than I thought I did... So if you fancy throwing some cash at me, then head on over to the twoducksdisco store.

I have just finished a terrifying t-shirt for Pandy Cane clothing which should be all set for scaring small children come Halloween... or not. And more pictures are emerging from Flatstock 23 including some nice... And some, less nice... And I'm sure there'll be plenty more to come.

Tatty bye.

In Our Talons

Well, hey...

So I made it back from Hamburg in one piece (barely) and managed to have a great time hanging out with all the Flatstock artists and German dudes. Plus I also managed to sell a few posters, which is always a bonus. Here is a picture of my print 'A Hard Days Night' in The Beatles museum, which was ace and I also sold a few of these whilst I was there. I've just put them up in the twoducksdisco Big Cartel shop, so if you fancy picking one up just slide on over. And just for you there's a special 20% discount if you enter the discount code upon checkout. Its 'Lennon' by the way...

So, I finally get around to posting my Bowerbirds poster. I like the Bowerbirds, I think I may go and see this gig. And thats it for now, next week there will be better photos from Hamburg so you can judge us as the drunken maniacs you've come to expect... plus some new works, hooray!

You say goodbye...
