Subterranean 85 - 86



Recently I re-digitized some old cassettes of Primal Scream. The tapes captured their early brilliance as a post punk version of The Byrds or Love where they accidentally created a sound which would later be expanded upon by The Stone Roses. A cover was needed for this project so it was decided to capture the subject and the time which the recordings were made. To do this it was decided to present the contents as a bootleg album from the time complete with badly pasted on covers and wrong song titles.

Paperback Writer



The "lost novel" as an actual novel.

George Spiggott



The Peter Cook and Dudley Moore tour de force Bedazzled has been a favourite of Piper Gates for a long time (see here and here). Deciding to look at the subject with a different approach it was decided to incorporate the pop art visuals of the Stanley Donen film with the design of Dudley's beloved jazz albums. It was then presented in the look of a lost novel and available as a limited edition of thirty 30cm x 40cm prints here.

As a follow up the coluring book from a couple of years ago it was decided to create a Stone Roses Birthday Card to add to the growing “Cult Birthday Card” collection. Taking influence from the majestic Fools Gold era it was decided to create a design which represented the different characteristics of each member therefore showcasing the group as a whole. Ian Brown as the confident mystic, John Squire the quiet artist, Reni in mischievous mode and Mani the smiling heart of the band. The limited edition A5 card is available here.

Homo Superior Episode Three



Mission accomplished.

Homo Superior Episode Two





Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending Brit Sci Fi here in sunny Leicester. Primarily I went to hear a talk and meet my childhood faves The Tomorrow People. Regular readers will know of my love for the Tomorrow People and with that in mind I decided to create a poster for the attending TP’s to sign. In the end 3 designs were conceived and made available for one month only.
