Music for Sleeping & Waking Minds

Here's a new image to promote the forthcoming exhibition "Music for Sleeping & Waking Minds" which will involve participants spending the night in an exhibition space hooked up to a specially designed machine that will read the output from their sleeping minds and output it as a beautiful soundscape. I'm really hoping to be able to make it to the London show on the 25th of June (there is also going to be a show in New York that will be happening earlier) and I'll keep you posted as I find out more. I've got the feeling that this is going to be something very special indeed and I've been thrilled to be involved!

Young Guts - GO FOR IT!

Oh gosh it's really been awhile since I've sat down and really constructed a post but this one's pretty straightforward so much so I'm holding down a job as a small town real estate salesman at the same time as writing this! No commas!

This time around I've been working on behalf on Dublin based band No Monster Club for their summer tour T-shirts and together we've come up with a rather spiffing design, let me guide you through it's development...

What do No Monster Club want on a tshirt? They want fun, natural summer fun! Just like in this video they made featuring GORGEOUS people in stop motions


So here I am, having not felt a lick of sun in many a year trying my hardest to craft a tshirt with things that say 'Beach' and 'Summer' and 'Balls'. Beachballs. This is what I come up with intially:

Woman riding a donkey(.avi) was my first touchstone of all things beachin' and NMC seemed to like it too so it developed thusly;

...and then the Tropical birds swooped and formed what I think is a nice balance for the picture.

But I think we'd all agree the text didn't work in this version so a bit more development was required...

...this extremely odd sun came to me one day as I was doodling and NMC liked it so they wanted it incorporated...

Leading to this, the final version!

Which you will be able to buy in their online shop soon! I'll keep you posted.

Real estate job fell through btw, turns out I was just watching Glengary Glen Ross too close to the tv.
