Chatsworth 'Beyond Limits' 2011

'Lion II' by Ji Yong-Ho

'Simple Lines' by Zadok Ben-David

'Desert Sand' by Nadim Karam

'Visitor II' by David Breuer-Weil

Walking Woman' by Lynn Chadwick

'Myth' by Damien Hirst

'Legend' by Damien Hirst

Recently went to Chatsworth & saw this years Beyond Limits exhibition when the gardens are overtaken by contemporary sculpture. It was a glorious autumnal day with the seasons changing colours in full glory! I loved Damien Hirsts 'Myth' & 'Legend' placed beautifully & regally at the end of the canal pond, and Lynn Chadwick's 'Walking Woman' with a fab abstract expression billowing behind her of her movement through the air. Also really liked Zadok Ben-David's 'Simple Lines' which was highlighted by a gorgeous blue October sky. The exhibitions finished now but go take a look at my photos from the 2010 and 2009 exhibitions.

Website & Banner Update

Managed to finally update my website, and been messing around with a new banner logo; I like the symmetry of both my first & last names having 6 letters so been mixing them up and tossing them around and came up with this one. Not sure it's legible enough, what do you think?

Alpine Soundtrack

Here's a little image I put together for Supreme Being's Design Contest on the theme of 'Alpine Soundtrack'. Mountains & Music want more could you want? I love the French Alps, the Scottish Highlands and for a perfect soundtrack listen to Ryan Adams' new record Ashes & Fire.

New Red Old Rail T-shirt Design

Here's my design for the Ghosts of Gone Birds T-shirt competition run by All Tropical. There was a huge list of extinct birds to choose from and I chose the Red Rail to breathe new life into.

Here's my description: ''The Red Rail became extinct around 1700 and while it can never come back as it was, maybe it can return as a newer version of itself, to avenge its ancestors. Perhaps it could be a ninja with 5 legs and a triangular hole (just in case you need one). My 'New Red Old Rail' design shows the new ninja bird made up out of the original Red Rail image scrambled up and which is on it's side extinct.'

See all of the designs in the gallery here and you can vote for mine here, the top 10 get through to be judged by the likes of Guy Garvey (from Elbow), Jimi Goodwin (from Doves) and the radio DJ Marc Riley and then the top 2 get printed into tees!
