Seasonal Cheer.

I long thought this place needed a spruce up, and since Blogger's new template editor makes it so easy, I can put off learning PHP until sometime after death. Also I left my profile text unchanged so long that it became true again. Hurrah!

New work with Hombre Secreto for the Bacillus.

A History of Neglect Part Two

Putting ink to good use at TAA.

I had intended a lot more for TAA, but unfortunately I only got round to the venue twice in the four day run, right at the start and right at the end. When I'd left this piece it was nothing but black ink on a practically clean surface, this picture was taken minutes before the event finished, surprisingly I find myself not hating the additions, nature of the event I suppose.

A History of Neglect Part One

Over the next couple of weeks I shall be posting some of the things I've been doing this past year. Starting with this.

Flyer for the Temporary Autonomous event 2009. Much fun was had by all, photos of the event itself can be found scattered about it's Facebook group.

First post since coming back from the land of festivals. Been doing some stuff, continuing work on a little project brought to you by the number 8 and the letter B, making artwork on various walls and tents across the island of Great Britain using mud and markers, photo evidence of which will be up here just as soon as people send it to me, including an interpretation of Animal from the Muppet Show as (I hope for your sake) you've never seen him before.

Oh, if anyone is interested my new email address is jontkeappock (AT)

Back in Manchester I've produced a flyer for Vixen Promotions, got the call on Thursday morning and finished the whole thing in a day which I'm quite happy with.

The initial concept, the only specification I was given was that it should be something like a circus poster, I also worked in a little playing card design and drew inspiration from childhood memories of Upside Downy books (does anyone remember them?) to make a flyer that read differently from every direction with a conjoined freak ring master/ suicidal sword eater as a centrepiece. At the time the only acts due to play were Rust Inhaler and Flesh Eating Foundation (not Society as I'd scrawled on the sketch)

The mostly completed illustration, but as crunch time got closer and changes were made to the line up a quick rethink was needed.

The sword eater gets chopped, possibly to be never seen again, the background is added and the flyer goes to print.

Stuff and Nonsense

Things I've been doing lately include, another doodle for a thread on the Engine. The challenge was to design a wooden spaceship and it's captain. The tree's the captain, the seed's the ship.

A Lottie-nut's course is altered by the gravitational pull of the moon. In time it may find purchase on the Moon's surface or on the broken shards of lunar material that surround it. However, the adult specimen we see, is of the lucky few, of the thousand's of nuts a single tree can produce in a year, all but a handful are lost forever, smashed on the side of some distant planet, or doomed to drift and wither, their propellent expired, no hope of ever finding a new home.

Other things, put together a poster for Break the Silence Promotions, they're putting on a Grindcore/ Trash night at the Music Box on the 26th of July, so if you're in Manchester and you like your metal heavy get your arse to that.

Below's a recent sketch that I did, could be part of another poster, and if it is it'll be the first illustrated flyer I've put out, if not, then its another addition to my growing collection of monster drawings.

And for a slight change of mood there's this, the picnic never happened by the way. The photo's by the delectable Kat, who took it at Wreckhead Picnic I, all I did was put letters on it.
