This week I spent a few days making a variety of slippers from card for a bedroom themed photoshoot in homes and gardens magazine. Am looking forward to seeing the proper pics, shall post them as soon as its published.
Last week I had the pleasure of working with the lovelly Becca Whitney (of Lord Whitney) on photographing the first t-shirt by new and super talented design duo, Prints of Theives. Things began to resemble a crystal maze game in the later stages where we got stuck in a giant web of wool... good times!

Here's some pics of a project I did with Rachel Lattimore and Paul Kelly for Jellymongers extrodinaire Bompuss and Parr's stall at the V & A Annual Village fete. We spent a few days making the set for a real life game of operation, complete with magic operating table where contestants could retreve prizes from the belly of an unfortunate patient!
Another bit of (slightly old) news was the construction of this massive paper jungle for Emiliana Torrini's "Jungle Drum" Video. I was part of a crew of paper jungle making crazies assisting art directors Bryony Birkbeck, Anna Lomax and Miren Maranon to produce this painstakingly large set for the video which was directed by Price James.
I recently had the pleasure of assisting art director Ashley Dando with props for Peaches' "Talk to Me", Video, Directed by Price James. The creepy set and amazing hair and costumes made for a rather spooky couple of days. You can watch the video at... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2hvkiuxRAE
Rachel Lattimore and I created these life size, hand painted 'cut-outs' of roller girls and ice creams for a 50's diner themed room at Future Cinema's event to celebrate the release of the Watchmen earlier this year.
Last October I was commissioned by the lovely people at Die Gestalter agency to propose ideas for images to be used on the posters/web site for next years Open Air St Gallen Festival in Switzerland. The theme was electric disco, so I proposed 3D glasses with with shapes filled with instruments and colour growing from them as in some of the original sketches above.
After graduating and hot footing it upto London I spent August and September assisting fashion editor Lauren Blane at Wonderland and learning lots about the hectic world of magazines and photoshoots.
