Purson are another great British band on a great British label (Rise Above). This is a VERY rough sketch for a poster idea featuring vocalist Rosalie Cunningham. I was reminded of a Siouxie and the Banshee's LP sleeve as I was sketching... so I think I'll do something similar when I find it... It was very graphical and iconic.

Well.... 2 girls... One is a student of the black arts... and the other is an Assassin... they are both sketches! I was thinking of using the top one for a single sleeve/ gig poster for Orchid or Horisont (or a band like that). The other was just a sketch that happened.

Another recently uncovered Lost Jazz Classic from the Homeland Label. The Jazz Bats were/are a trio of Transylvanian troubadours that cut their teeth working with famed Jazz legend Django Reinhardt. This record (Nocturne in Jazz Minor) was a free form Jazz odyssey of the highest order.

The Mummy's Lament, b/w Torn Bandage Blues.
Released in 1957 on the revered Homeland label.
A lilting Jazz guitar ballad by the 1100 year old Buddy 'Bandages'. Discovered playing in the Jazz cafes of Egypt by the legendary Dave Brubeck, who was on a 18-30's camping holiday with good friends Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy.

Here's another new piece of art... this time, for (former MISFIT) DOYLE supporting the mighty (former MISFIT) DANZIG at the Hammerstein Ballroom, NY as part of Danzig's LEGACY tour.
Doyle has such a strong visual appearance so it was a great little exercise in simplification, using repeat shapes...
Really pleased with this too!

It's a mixture of 'things' that brought about the demise of my creativity... but ultimately the blame lies purely with me.
So, if my days of drawing are indeed numbered... and this might be one of my last hurrah's... here's a digital drawing of chewbacca... sadly... I don't like it!

Saw a full page ad in the latest issue of Metal Hammer for an upcoming UK tour by the reunited Soundgarden. It was a bit boring... which inspired me to put this sketch together. Really pleased with it, and have an idea for the colourways that pays homage to Louder Than Love.
Sorry for the poor photo quality... crappy phone! Here's a Rodney Matthews inspired multi-instrumental minstrel from the farthest reaches of the unknown forest (who has appeared on the blog a long time ago, when he was last passing through).
