Monday

I’ve been working David Meulen the last while, shooting and designing the cover for his debut album, @davidmeulen. As part of the promotion for the album, I put together this short animated teaser video, in which the cover design is brought to life.

Handwriting and music by David Meulen, illustrations by Jessi Howell.

New painting: Hammond

ART

I don’t know when I started this little painting, but it must have been around 2010, because that’s when I took the source photo…Anyway, it’s been hanging on my wall incomplete (just half an acrylic base coat) for the last few years so I decided to finish it up this week. This is Hammond, our family’s first cat, who adopted us in 2001 (followed swiftly by his ginger cohort Lynx). We don’t know his exact age but estimate him to be around 17.

I’ve recently completed a new painting, a classic military-style portrait with a touch of absurdity. Photo below and more after the jump.

Vuvuvultures (UK), BEAST & The Dollfins at Mercury

Friday 14 March 2014

For those like me who missed Ramfest earlier this month (or for those who were there and wanted to catch one of the headliners again), Vuvuvultures did an SA tour playing one of the last shows on their roster at Mercury last Friday along with BEAST and The Dollfins.

I don’t often go monochrome but it was a high contrast b/w kinda night…
