30 Year of 'Empire...' Desktop

No explanation required.. 30 years ago etc...

I was nine which is as good a reason as any to avoid dwelling on the subject other than it's my favourite Star Wars film, and Boba Fett is an enduring character design as is the majority of production design across the original trilogy.
So, a desktop is attached for your viewing pleasure - there are many that I could have done and many others that you'll find right now but this is something that I hadn't seen anything like and that's why it's here.

Thank you.

More Robots...

It's getting close to 'DARE' time of year again..
Here's this years poster and last years tees...
Not sure what i'm doing with the tee's this year... so keep it here and maybe you'll find out :)

The first of these mini-docs is about the Big Top Jamboree event that took place on Monday 17 May - organised by Lauren Gentry, Nikki McWilliams and Jen Collins, all of whom came together as a result of being part of the Central Station SuperFly event. Go here to see the video.

I am Ironman...

Well, not quite...

but, as i'm reasonably excited to see the new IronMan film, I had the idea of doing a version of my gilaBot robot in an IronMan colour way... and here we are!
I've also created a desktop version for you to stare at for the next few weeks.. let me know what you think :)

And if you've any suggestions for other colour ways then let me know.

So, the Dundee Schools Music Theatre shows are approaching..!
I won't give away too much other than to say that the Dundee Rep will be home to their production of Return to the Forbidden Planet..!
I've never seen the show but the film that it's based on is one of my all-time favourites.
I can remember watching it on BBC 2 as part of a series that they did which included, The Time Machine, War of the Worlds and possibly The Boy With Green Hair.. all undeniable classics... the ones I didn't care for too much were The Day The Earth Stood Still and The Blob.. which were a little too pedestrian for my 9yr old self.. ;)
Anyway, here's my 'teaser' illustration for the Rep advertising.. The final poster will have more detail and colour.
I'm happy that it gets the 50's feel across but what I set out to do was along the lines of the Incredibles 'cut-out' style that was adopted for the credits sequence (see below..) I didn't crack it in time so had to go for something closer to my comfort zones..
Maybe i'll get it sorted in the programme!

What do you think..?

Never Get Out Of The Boat..

Marketing Agitator and fellow 'Blogger' Eaon Pritchard has generously drawn attention, via his blog, to my little 'art project' SuperFly.

I'll not cover the same ground twice.. just go and visit his page and then follow his blog.. it's always a an eclectic and interesting mix of creative marketing insight and 'punk'! ;)

SuperFly! - 2010

Well, no one was more surprised/delighted than me whan this happened again..!

SuperFly is back and this time, not 'just' an Exhibition with a twist.
SuperFly has been given a mission - to spread the word of the impending visit from Central Station to Dundee and the guided tour of all things creative in this fair city!
So, congratulations to Central Station for getting us locals to do what we could have (but didn't) do ourselves ;)

So, 5 local artists are adorning 15 Super-sized street posters for two weeks leading up to the the event on February 6th.
For more info visit, or the 'formidable' FormFiftyFive (

But, before you do - take a look at the posters and check out everyday this week for a profile on each of the artists!
