Hello people who actually visit this bog blog, I'd like to tell you about something I'm doing that I think is exciting, although you are within your rights to think it's crap.
I AM 1/10 is a project I'm doing with soon to be launched news, art, music, internet place The Double Negative, on their fine, fine online shop you will be able to buy a special print of my work, made especially to be sold through them, there will be 10 of each design and that's it, it'll be the only time that print is available in anyway, so instead of thinking one day, you'll have to think, shit! now!
Or atleast that's the hope, we'll see how it goes won't we...
I hate writing about money based shit, it comes out badly, but yes I am trying to make you give me your money.
Here's the front cover to 'As God As My Witness' - the wrestling zine I'm illustrating for Belly Kids which they're describing as "Crammed full of pictures, essays and photographs this zine is inspired by the memories and charisma of professional wrestling", Wrestling is obviously brilliant, don't be a snob. You probably pretend you don't like listening to System of a Down on the sly. Well stop it. Do what you like etc.
Will be out before the end of the year.

I did, it was at some shit gig I was at. Oh lord it was terrible, Coachwhips wouldliketobe's, when did they get so groovy with "the kids"? Who fucking cares. End blog.
Here's the long time coming good version of the Condom Chimp artwork that they'll never use. Unless you hassle them or something! yeah, thats a good idea! Do that. I love Part Chimp, they're fucking boss.

100% FUCK OFF
Friday 15th July @ Wolstenholme Creative Space, Liverpool.
This gig will also coincide with the release of the long awaited Monobrow recording 'Poor Battles' on Lancashire and Somerset Records. This will be in the form of a CD / Tshirt combo deal, all the proof you could ever need of attending such a wonderful gig and celebration of all the stupid shit Monobrow have done over the years.

Stig Noise and Divorce are going on their jollies together in a van to Europe to make peoples ears hurt and their legs ache from dancing. So here's the blank tour poster that will inevitably be used for one gig, out of loads, I hope Stig Noise let me paint the van like that. That'd be amazing!!
Here's loads of pizza, who doesn't like loads of Pizza, for Illustration Rally's Pattern rally, my second submission to them, always fun. Got more stuff I've done for other people but I post any of it yet...

The poster relates to a tale of terrible hill / wheelchair / bins based drama. It was pretty funny though.

Here's another animally poster, for Nathan Bell, who on his last visit to Liverpool got jibbed off at the border and sent back to America, what a load of shite. Best of luck this time Mr Bell. Also appearing Ex-Easter Island Head who are brilliant and the folk/drone band I'm in Trouble with Books - possibly with an additional set of arms letting rip on the arrldd violin. We shall see.
Holy fucking shit! this gig is going to be amazing! Bilge Pump haven't been to Liverpool in years and the grand unveiling of NEMS signees The Left Hand too. We're lucky buggers we are.

p.s. it's my Birthday on Monday!
Here's a picture of Nick Cave eating his Cheerios for the Illustration Rally blog, check out the link to see more info and tha. Illustration Rally is "a massive international rolling collaboration which takes a theme and runs with it!" You should have a nose and send something, yes you, reading this you. go on.
HOLY SCREENPRINTED FUZZ PEDAL WITH MY DRAWING ON BATMAN!
Ian from Ghost Effects got in touch with me about designing a single colour screen print for a new pedal he was working on, and here it is!
The pedal is called the "Mind Rocker" and is a tweaked bass heavy / loud Fuzz Face / Tonebender1.5. The fuzz is fixed at max, and the filter control is like the timbre control on a Baldwin / Burns Buzzaround but slightly less drastic. He will also be doing these with fuzz / attack control instead of the tone/filter (but still labelled filter!)"
Available in Green, Blue, Gold and Pink (run of 10). Get in touch with him, get one, put it through some amps and play some riffs, go on!

Super fast poster action for gig next weekend! first TWB gig of the year, and we'll have a load of stickers if anyone wants any, still no recordings though! this gig will be boss so come along. don't go in that put your stinky feet in a tank of fish shop on Bold Street, it looks fucking ridiculous. Obviously.
My missus is starting a little club showing all of MONK, the tv show. And I wanted to do a poster, I'm sure Tony Shalhoub would be gutted to see my bad drawing of his face.
If you like the idea of watching it, and you know Me or Ang, get in touch with one of us.
EDIT #1: had to take Divorce off the poster. Sad times.
EDIT #2: added Hammerfist to the poster. Good times.
This one was a nightmare to do! not for any reason other than trying to not just pull the offensive card! Gonna be a fucking boss gig though, come on down and party on with some good soul shakin' noisy nonsense, and the first appearance of B.P.S.O in fucking ages!! featuring members of all your favourite liverpool bands.
(excuse the badly taken photo, my camera has no viewfinder and a smashed screen)
Here in one post, two of my favourite things collide.
1. vile hideous sounding distortion pedals
2. drawing skulls crying with beards while puking out ribbons
Above is a clone of a Machine which makes crossover distortion which is interesting if you geek out about stuff like that, I do. Build by Mike of MadeByMike pedals, he is a boss bloke and you should ask him to build you pedals cause he builds them fucking good!

Happy New Year to all you people who seem to come and visit this little blog! The amount of visitors in 2010 was pretty ridiculous, so come back more often this year!
