Abuelo Rum Panama

 

I had a great time working with Ron Abuelo Rum in Panama and Agency Purple in London on this project. Special thanks to Gwyn Edwards & Becca Mitchell at Purple and Jack Cox at Debut Art. It was a ray of sunshine in the studio back in a cold January. Currently live across South America in print, up on billboards, animated ads and live events.#vamospanama

Artwork celebrating 60 years of The British Touring Car Championship (BTCC)

The BTCC is one of the best-loved, most illustrious and famous motor racing championships in the world. Since its inception in 1958, it has attracted and captivated millions of fans around the world.

To celebrate 60 years of BTCC, BMW has released a collection of posters celebrating each decade of BMW’s involvement in the series. From the 1960’s right up to the 2000’s, each poster is crafted to celebrate a decade, with an iconic art-style from that era: Pop art and Tech noir to name a few. The vehicles featured in the posters are representative of each decade of racing carrying the livery of that era. The nostalgic creatives not only celebrate 60 years of Britain’s premier motorsport series, but also BMW’s passion for motorsport.

What is it about lost or disregarded childrens posessions? A dummy, a toy, a shoe, a bike. Symbols of a carefree existence? growing up? careless parenting or a buy cheap – buy twice throwaway culture? I do love the asthetic of a well worn kids bike though, with fun, risk and adventure written all over it – little wheels flyin’ along – freewheelin’. Sad to see them dumped but always compelling all the same. There’s a mountain of these at the local dump – which I find too sad to look at.

This time last year Jackie Parsons and I were asked to create a cover, visual concepts and internal illustrations for an amazing 80 page book. The Accidental Memoir by Anthony Cropper and Eve Makis is a beautifully written book designed to glean unsuspecting and life changing stories and the magic of everyday experiences from anyone and everyone. We worked directly with the authors and book designers Playne Design to create this early version which was funded by The Arts Council UK. ( Read about it’s conception here ) Producing a limited run of 300 copies it was used as workshop tool by Anthony and Eve from creative writing groups to refugee centres and prisons. Earlier this year Harper Collins comissioned us to further develop the interior illustrations for a new commercial release. See next post for the next part of it’s journey.

Erica Buettner – The Book of Waves.

8 years ago I created the artwork for Erica’s first LP ‘True Love and Water‘ and now am very proud to have created the artwork for her second – The Book of Waves.

Beautiful music created by an amazing woman.

I built some 3D layered sets to create depth in the collages which were then photographed.

The CD comes with a fully illustrated inlay booklet.

Title: Virtual Vatican  Client: Garage Magazine  Writing : Cintra Wilson  AD: Remi Paringuax  Medium: Hand Made Collage

 

I was given free rein to interpret Cintra Wilson’s vivid and twisted fashion writing and create 5 dystopian future retro realms as imaginary VR holiday destinations. This piece honed in on the intensity of papel & ecclesiastical fashion through the centuries and my research involved buying 20 or so books on the history of Catholicism, the Vatican city, sculptures and statues. I also researched religious vestments, robes and relics – and the intertwined and surreal miarrage between fashion and religion. Although I’m not practicing now, being brought up in an Irish Catholic community in London definitely helped with the understanding and research of this artwork. I had an intuition for the subject matter and even drew from a personal collection of prayer cards and holy relics inherited from dearly departed relatives.
