Western fables.

Heres a poster i did for the next issue of Dave Wests Strange times comic book, if you havent already seen them go look at
He is a smallpress genius who works in a style thats reminiscent of Alan Moores early Future shocks for 2000ad cross pollinated with the suburban lunacy of Douglas Adams.
Each issue contains interconnected stories that all have an archetypally English air of apolcalyptic whimsy.
I cant recommend them highly enough.

Strange times.

I sold my soul for rock and roll.

A couple of pieces i did several years back for two local bands.
First was a sticker design done for a band called Seethe, who were doom metal merchants with some serious sabbathesque riffage going on.
And the other is Fingerbang a free piece I did for a bunch of kids called Desperate cycle who were a real solid Punk band (though none of them were even an itch in their Daddies pants when punk was happening but thats no bad thing.) their sound and name just pulled the image straight from my head fully formed to the paper.
Neither design was used HA! HA!
