Halloween Hobbies

This last Halloween was the first time I'd carved pumpkins with a serious kit (whittling knife set, some kitchen utensils and a few purposely bent tools) and consequently it was the first time I've ever been impressed with the results. It turns out that I'm quite keen to carve and spent some time over the weekend working on 3 pumpkins, 1 apple and 1 potato. Perhaps I should quit this painting lark and follow a vegetable carving career to get my slice of the pie.

The Blobs!

Whilst sorting through old folders I came across this technique I was using to make textures for digital wizardry. Although I can't pin it, there's something I still find interesting in these as abstract shapes and their turnout of colours.

Yet another one off the 'Don't Believe the Type' reel. This time using words from way back in 1996, paying tribute to some golden era.

My Pen and Pad

'Don't Believe the Type' draws up a piece from Blackalicious this time using my own pen and pad. Amazing flows in the original, check it out.

Revival Revisited

   At the end of last year I'd made up a set of menu boards for Cafe Revival in Bristol. Since then I've had to the opportunity to go back and visit them to see how the finals look in place and with the addition of the the panelled service counter I think it all beautifully ties together.

The Goan Corner

Another nice looking website co-designed by myself and Leon Etchels of Voices of India

Whilst spending time in Hampi by chance we put together something for The Goan Corner which is a beautiful and relaxed guesthouse tucked away amongst the palm trees.

I am currently travelling around India and hence have not been very busy creatively but am enjoying the life. However in the past week I have been working with Edu Arts Solutions building their new website. Edu Arts is mainly based in Bangalore and Delhi, conducting workshops and summer camps to children between ages 4-16. The classes cover topics such as dance, theatre, design, song, painting and others. Headed by Vineet Singh he has a great passion for what he does and I might be conducting workshops with his group in the future . . .
