Carnaby Street's 50th Anniversary exhibition and book

We've just finished installing this exhibition for Carnaby street's 50th anniversary, it's located at 38 Carnaby Street and will be opening on February 26th until late March 2010.

The main installation of the exhibition is a 3D layered timeline. The collage wall illustrates a detailed history dating back to the 1600s to the present. It's an eclectic collection of photographs, ephemera, old prints, patterns and details that depict the spirit of Carnaby Street.

I was commissioned by Judith Clark and Amy de la Haye to work with them and John Morgan Studio to collage elements of the Street's history, produce a logo which adorns the front of the building and banners along Carnaby street and other promotional material. John Morgan studio produced a beautiful book of the exhibition, which is available to buy from the Carnaby Street website.


Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen

Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen has just been published by Hamish Hamilton

I did the cover design and inside illustrations, which I've just found out have been picked to be featured in this year's AOI's illustration annual and touring exhibition.

Thanks for the heads up HH & A...

And Caustic Cover Critic.

It's a fantastical novel, well-recommended, read more reviews in the Guardian and Metro, and an interview with author Marilyn Chin on the Penguin website.

On Kindness, now available in paperback format

On Kindness by Adam Phillips and Barbara Taylor, published by Hamish Hamilton and now available as a paperback from all good book shops.

I did the cover illustration and Christian Brett did the elegant typesetting inside and out.

Clifford Harper

A revolutionary, revelatory weekend... I spent the afternoon with Clifford Harper, who I've commissioned to illustrate an article in the forthcoming issue of the Idler. His archive of work and the way he works is astounding, I thought all his work was woodcuts, but actually it’s all pen-drawn on CS10 HPS Illustration Board! A very fine anarchist.

Very pleased to meet you Clifford Harper.

the Idler: issue 43 'Back to the Land'

The latest Idler magazine has now gone into production and will be published on May 1st 2010.
