Noise Project - Week 2 - The Little Things

Below is a sample (not the full image) from my response to Week 2 of the Noise Intercepted project. More on this at my previous blog post. The Noise Project is run by the Toronto based arts organsiation - Labspace Studio.
For this image I followed the brief below. The title of the week's challenge was 'The Little Things'.

This week spend some time paying attention to the little things.... the sounds that you tend to ignore and the seemingly insignificant noises that you take for granted. You have 1 week to listen, identify and select one "insignificant" sound and transform it into something "significant." 

 My full response to the brief can be found here.

Memoir Project - Clown Noses - Preview Page 1.

The Memoir Project is run by the Arhouse co-op in Brooklyn New York, where they have asked 500 writers and artists to complete a 32 page booklet and turn it into a Memoir. This is from the same organisation who run The Sketchbook Project, where I created my book - 'Fashion Design For Monsters'. My Memoir is called 'Clown Noses' and is a series of poems and pictures, making use of concrete poetry and imagery to act as a Memoir. The Book will go on tour in various cities in North America. More on this later, but below is an image from my book. I won’t be posting up all the pages, just a selection.

Railway Children Poster Design - Gig in Edinburgh

I've just completed a poster for a gig in Edinburgh. The poster was done for a charity called the Railway Children - a charity who help children in the UK and abroad.
I decided to volunteer for the organisation several months ago and help out with my artwork and design skills. The poster is below and the first time I've done a gig poster in years
