Recently installed a series of staircase murals at Leeds Corn Exchange.
Bracketpress will be at the Manchester Print fair this weekend.
I’ll also have a tidy display of incline press ephemera, and Idler magazines to browse (and a special subscription offer). If you love everything about printing or illustration, or have space on your walls or bookshelf, you must come down to the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester this weekend (Saturday and Sunday). And whilst in town, visit the Manchester artists book fair at Chapter One bookshop in the northern quarter tomorrow.

Thank you to all the lookers, buyers and people who chatted yesterday at the Manchester print fair. The venue was stunning – Manchester Cathedral (near Victoria Station). The hosts and workshops were brilliant as ever. Best fair yet bar none.

I've been working on a number of great projects over the Summer, notably a series of emblems for an exhibition by fashion curator Judith Clark and psychoanalyst Adam Phillips, which has just opened at the Barbican, London this week.
I was commissioned to illustrate a series of emblems – each interpreting Adam's text, which defined a series of ideas and pieces selected by Judith, on the subject of Vulgarity, exploring the contradictions of fashion and what defines good and bad taste.
Three of the emblems were recreated as large scale two metre coins which hang down over the exhibition area. All of the illustrations are situated throughout the exhibition alongside the text definitions, and also within the exhibition book, for more detail visit Barbican
I was also asked to create a collection of stationery and textiles goods which are now available in the Barbican Shop
