Wollen Sie hängen später?

Cardon Webb


Another one of those “sigh…if I only had more time” kind of projects that I hear about, but never-the-less, Cardon Copy is a project by designer Cardon Webb to redesign local flyers in his neighborhood into something more visually appealing. The best part is, he doesn’t just re-design for portfolio’s sake, but also posts his designs in the real world, helping relocate stray cats in distress in the process.

Darth Maul


managed to end up getting massively distracted in the studio today and ended up boshing out a huge doodle of Darth Maul (From star wars) using whiteboard markers.

Sam working in the studio, warmed by both a radiator and a 3-bar electric fire.



I am Literally Struggling to focus on getting my dissertation nailed this week. This is partly due to a crack in my glasses, but can be mostly be attributed to my increasingly poor attention span.

Exotic Bugers.

Exotic Burgers. Kankeroo - Ostrich Etc
plus various other exotic food/craft related products

Sacha Goldberger


“A few years ago, French photographer Sacha Goldberger found his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika feeling lonely and depressed. To cheer her up, he suggested that they shoot a series of outrageous photographs in unusual costumes, poses, and locations. Grandma reluctantly agreed, but once they got rolling, she couldn’t stop smiling.”

Made some Pizza the other day, not gonna lie, they were 100% Megga.


Saw about 6 of these on my way to Uni over the last week or so. Personally I enjoy this a great deal. This is something I would like to see a lot more of in and around Newcastle.

New Book.


Picked up this lovely little 1940's Educational book. Only cost me 1 english pound. The Book shop round the corner from my house is rammed full of little gems like this. Our course seems to place a huge amount of emphasis on "Craft" as it seems to be becoming more and more important in this "digital age" we livin in. As a consequence our projects often have to culminate into some sort of limited edition book.

virgin media

Our wireless internet is busted. as a result i can only use my laptop within the range of the wire.

It was only after we had paid for the full year contract (in advice) that we found out we had super shitty wireless internet connection. I am well out of my league when it comes to anything to do with improving this sort of thing. as a result I am 100% leaving it to my housemates to fix this one.

This is Tyler Smythe

Found my old Nicon compact flash digital camera, desided to make a short film about my housemate Tyler Smythe. this was the test version. i plan to make a slightly longer ( and much better quality) version showing a full (normal) day in the life of tyler. from the moment he wakes up to the moment he pops off to bed. should be fun.

mystery post

was sent this in the post the other day, the letter was addressed to me but it did not say who it was from. Mysterious? darn right!
From the looks of it, it was screen printed.

Dog Water.

Spotted this bowl provided to benefit thirsty dogs. The hand written sign drew me in for a closer look. It was full of delicious cherries. (lucky dogs).

New Camera/New t-shirt design.

this is the only existing photo of my latest T-shirt. it was a (child like) illustration of Darth maul. unfortunately i washed (and dyed) the T-shirt at a much too high temperature so it got mostly destroyed. i shall have to re think my strategy/get better quality iron on thingys/pay someone else to print them properly for me.

Great North Run.

Bike riding and that

I woke up relatively late this morning (11pm) after a quick "Champions Breakfast" (2Eggs, Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Beans, Toast) I spent the lions share of my day cruuuzing around the East-Yorkshire-Rural-Cycle-Path-Scene. I was over taken (23 separate occasions) by people on proper bikes with proper bikey-bike accessories (helmet, sun glasses, water etc) This was not a problem for me (I was playing by my own rules). I got home about 2 hours ago. My legs are stiff.

fuck you whale!


re-made my "fight" poster. Screen prints to come.

some sort of map.

Today I worked on making this map. I am not sure what the map will be used for. i do not recognise any of the street names or landmarks (so maybe i si not newcastle) i think i may be some sort of race? - start and finnish points?

I hate you mr pen tool.

Spent many hours drawing out this lovely elegant shape. this is how it looks on my screen when I am "fiddling/fanning about with the details."

Sumo Internship week 1

Top end wine - to be used as part of the picnic given to those privileged v.i.p's who have the pleasure of enjoying a luxury world class picnic hamper.
Picnic materials - in-keeping with the ethos of the festival - English heritage preservation of the environment and maintenance of "English Heritage"
Tote bag application.

grass/gin-gem/and blue sky all reflect the atmosphere of this very British yet very international festival.
My designs on a couple of local busstops, ambient.
more or less the final poster - with Artists.

one of many drawings of the initial idea.

English Heritage - Picnic Concerts
initial ideas - very open and fluid. Attempting to combine the two attributes for the festival (food and music) i wil work on that copy a bit later on - probs use the word Fusion/Exquisite etc in some way to make the food and music sound "more better"
