The X - Ray Light Box.


The first X-ray light box. The digital mock up from the drawing board plus it's actual progress so far. Still very much a prototype but getting there slowly.
The idea is to juxtapose the clinical viewing of the body - the modern framing of anatomy that carries with it authority and appropriation (underlined, I would argue, with much fear) - with the nineteenth century view. That is  a curiosity  and a sense of wonder - an almost celebration of the mystery forever  inherent in human corporeality.

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!











Are Ears The New Black?

Hooray! It appears girls with sticky outy ears can now come out of hiding. If the above photos in this months British Vogue are anything to go by the long wait is over. No need to be shy anymore. Such Good News (not personally you understand...I'm just pleased for those poor unfortunate girls who now can take their hats and headbands off...it's nothing to me...).

Tim Walker's Egon Schiele inspired editorial for i-D magazine.

Tim Walker's recent work for i-D magazine is recognisable instantly for its source inspiration, artist Egon Schiele. Along with stylist Jakob J they do a gorgeous job recreating Schiele's bright, but sparingly used palette and the postures his models struck. Brilliantly cast too are the models, particularly Schiele's wife and model, Edith Harms.
