Last April Le Galaxie wanted a poster for their London gig. They dug this and went with it.

This was for a new themed nightclub in Oldcastle. Every month they would run a night in an old cinema with music from and inspired by a classic film. Their opening night was Trainspotting.
Well I thought it was funny anyway. The title given to me was a play on shenanigans so what else but get up to some with classic old portrait paintings.

The big dance music gig on the Halloween Bank Holiday. Lots of different versions of this knocking around, lots of rough work too. Eventually an image from the Wellcome Library seemed to fit the bill. We had a bit of fun with this towards the end of the campaign, some of it a bit cringy too, it has to be said.
The Kaleidoscope night has been running since October 2009. In February they celebrate their 100th of the regular monthly gigs. Above is a work in progress as they have more planned for this celebration evening. They've actually done more than one hundred if you count the tours and special events. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the Kaleidoscope crowd over the years. Their regular gigs have been regularly selling out these days in The Bello Bar and I hope this does well too in the bigger Sugar Club.

ok so it's not paid work. Here's the cover I did for my band's recent single. I just wanted it to look like an old Slade record. Check it out here, it's good stuff.
I also wanted to come up with a classic rockin' logo for the band, something you'd see on patches or painted onto a jacket. So being The Middle Ages I went with a shield. I like this a lot. Here it is in it's most basic form.
I've just read that Sharon Jones has died. Yet another artist that I've some something from over the years. I couldn't find the first Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings poster I did years back but here is a section from a newspaper ad from 2010 when ChoiceCuts brought them to Dublin's Tripod. More RIPs.

I suppose I can post this one now. This show was cancelled, never went on sale, never announced. Prince's people supplied the photo of him, that's all. The rest was left to me, though it did have to be approved by "Prince himself". Now I don't know if that was bullshit or not but I heard back that "he" loved the poster. That was a great day. The Controversy Daily bit was the promoter's idea. RIP
