Gonna Take My Problems To The United Nations

I painted this wall in London at the weekend, the first image from my recent photo-shoot. The wall is part of the Whitecross Street Party, it happens in a few weeks but I’ll be away so I had to get the wall in early. The new imagery from the shoot has my usual mix of period costume and contemporary flags and you’ll see the finished canvases this October.

Big thanks to Teddy, Tom and Ian Cox for the flicks.

I Want Helicopters!

I did my second large scale photo shoot 2 days before I went to Italy. This is the most stressed you’ll ever see me, when I actually have to organize things. I’m doing a number of large paintings for October and this shoot was for source imagery. Many thanks to the models and of course Eoghan MacGyver Brennan for saving the day and Charles Lurking-in-the-Shadows Gervais for these sexy shots. Special shout out to Bambi.

Early Morning Florentine Glory

Spent a few days in Florence before heading back to London. I’ve wanted to go to Florence for the last gazillion years but I was pretty put off on arrival by the hoards of tourists clogging up every street (totally in denial that I am one of them). Didn’t see a whole lot of art (shame shame shame) as I was there for a wedding but I did think the city was at its best at 6am.
