It's not in my usual line of work, but still worth a mention: the cover photography I did for the book Dead Man Working by Carl Cederström and Peter Fleming. I had to make fake blood and then create puddles and splatter it around, which was heaps of fun!
For a private client I recently made an invitation for their wedding party on a rooftop terrace in Madrid. As the invitation was going to be send out electronically I suggested turning it into an animated GIF. I have an absolute soft spot for animated GIFs, so I was very excited about finally having an excuse for making one myself!
Today kids museum Villa Zebra sent me some really nice pictures of their semi-permanent exhibition ZELF! The exhibition consists of six interactive art installations that are tucked away in a big box. By opening one or more doors these installations are revealed and 3-6 year olds can get their hands dirty (metaphorically speaking).
You could say I've been on gig spree: in 9 days I've seen about 14 bands, varying from jazz to indie, from hip hopto folk, from garage rock to gypsy. My spree kicked off with Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains. I had to battle the elements to get to this gig, but once inside the venue the atmosphere couldn't have been in greater contrast with the miserable weather outside.
Totally random but highly enjoyable evening in the backroom of The Royal Oak in Cardiff last Friday, where several bands performed for Big Scott's show on Cardiff Radio. My mate Matt from Quiet Marauder (who gave a brilliant performance themselves that night) joined these old geezers on percussion. One guy was sound asleep throughout their entire set haha.
A while back I finally got around to putting some shelves up in my studio to display my collection of zines and illustration related magazines. And recently I finally got around to taking a picture of it. I now I'm finally getting around to actually blogging about it!
