Sick freak










Another Flesh & Bone 2.0 from my bulging sack of digital spanners. Normal analogue service will be resumed after Christmas, tomorrow's and the big day's are likely to be as crude - I'm distant from my scanner see so I'm pumping them out direct to the screen for now.

No challenge










LOOK MA, NO PENS! Don't think it's obvious but technology failed me and saved me and for reasons unknown I had to craft this episode of Flesh & Bone on the computer. We'll see if normal service is resumed tomorrow but I have a feeling it might not be. Flesh and Bone 2.0!

Flesh & Bone exhibition

Doooo wopper! Recently work was completed at Common bar in Manchester at turning their walls into a Flesh & Bone-o-rama. It was a massive amount of fun (at least a gallon), it took ten days of pure grit and weeks prior of careful preparation, punchline punchbagging and a whole lot more besides. Screenprints were made kindly by my Dad, four different screeny-p's on paper and then a t-shirt and totey b. These are all for sale at Common as of now. The exhibition runs til the end of September so if you're in Manchester get down. You should go there anyway, the beer is good and the fries are shoestring. Thanks to my glamorous assistants for helping with the painting of the walls, I couldn't have done it without you all that's for sure. Not all these photogs are mine, I bagged a few from Common and Rowan. More strip specific photos to follow at some point. Meanwhile, let's hear it for the assistants!


Thanks thanks thanks also to Dunk and all the Common crew for all their enabling, welcoming and complete non-meddling. They fed and watered the troops to immaculate effect. It was glorious. Here's the photos, they're in a mix of started and finished and blurred and crisp. CHEERS
