I was recently commissioned by R&S Records to design a record sleeve for Juan Atkins from Detroit. In the mid to late 80's Juan along with Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May pretty much invented a whole new style of futuristic dance music (Techno) This is his Sonic Sunset LP which was first released on R&S Records in 1994 and has been remastered from the original DAT tapes. He's without a doubt one of my musical heroes so i'm really happy to have been a part of this. The last two images are of the original painting.

Here's an animated promo i've made for Nuart 2013 using photographs of the featured artists work chopped up into a 3D space. Nuart is an annual international street art festival established in 2001. The Festival is based in Stavanger on the West Coast of Norway. In addition to a multitude of both sanctioned and unsanctioned public art works, Nuart also stages one of the most anticipated exhibitions of the year

Paqua EP #2 12" Sleeve Artwork:
Acrylic and Ink on Wood 40.9cm x 40.9cm
This is a painting I've done for the 2nd Paqua EP which is coming out on Claremont 56 and in the shops very soon. This time the Paqua tree is submerged in the depths of a tropical coral reef; unfortunately i've never been to a tropical reef but i've snorkelled around the north coast of Ibiza and it was one of the most amazing experiences i've had, gliding round the rocks and weird plants, seeing the sun rays punch through the surface and shimmer on all the oddities that lie beneath. It all feels totally out of this world and my perfect subject to visualise in paint. I'm just starting the Paqua album artwork back on dry land so there will be three (at least) 3 paintings in the series. It's great to lend my hand to these really strong musical collaborations between Bing Ji Ling, Paul "Mudd" Murphy & Alex Searle. Fathoms Deep.
