The Gallimaufry commissioned an illustration for their weekly rhythm and blues night. Themes of Americana, road trips, musicians and signage were suggested and this was the result. I focused on a limited palette, building the main core of the image as I would when creating a screen printed image.Read More
Another poster image commission from Bristol's The Gallimaufry, this time for their weekly Northern Soul night. I approached the job, again, as if planning a screen print, sticking to a limited colour palette working with simple shapes to get across a feel of the music and emphasis the fact it's an only-vinyl night...Read More
Cumberland Piazza, in the Hotwells area of Bristol, has recently undergone a colourful and illustrative transformation.

The team at Taxi Studio teamed up with Bristol's Festival of Print (hosted by The Letterpress Collective) to create a selection of collaborative artworks as part of the music-themed exhibition at Centrespace Gallery.
The task was to add to a sheet of A2 already letter-press printed with the image of a 7" single b-side.

I love when illustration and music come together. Today is a nice example of that. Later tonight, The Gallimaufry host their 3 year party and have invited Mo Kolours to DJ as part of it.
To celebrate I had the pleasure of taking a few of the masked characters I've previously created for the Galli and combine them with Mo Kolours' album character to form the key promotional image.
For extra fun, I screen-printed this tee in a limited run for loyal/keen supporters at the dance.
