Operation Concrete

I've recently completed and submitted my most ambitious work ever to Rich Galbraith's project, 'Operation Concrete', which is a way of promoting the publication of his first novel, exploring the possibilities of self-publishing and working a social media project all in one. It's been a real privelege to work with Rich on this, and as I'm a massive fan of the band Akira I'm doubly-excited about the launch night, which is taking place on 26th November at Vibe Bar on Brick Lane.

Here's a link to the event page on Facebook:

During the event, the following pictures will be on display, and for sale (click the link to see them):
Mist Of Blood And Rage (the full picture won't be posted to the internet until the show's been on, so the link is to an early WIP)

Postcards From Dystopia

The facebook event is here: POSTCARDS FROM DYSTOPIA I've got three postcards included in this exhibiton, curated and organised by Tutte Newall. Here's the official description.

“A futuristic or imagined territory where a universal menace prevails”

An international exhibition of thirty artists presenting visions of a menacing universe with a collection of postcard sized works. This is in conjunction with a showcase of larger paintings of ominous dystopian territories by Tutte Newall and Andrew Hladky.

Our present culture holds a fascination with the concept of our own ordered civilization's collapse into chaos. 'Postcards from dystopia' explores this idea by delving into the realms of the imaginary and issuing visions from a dystopian and desolate environment.
