Jayne's House.

Just a small selection of the detail photos I took when visiting the home of Jayne and Kevin and their two teenage sons. Such an amazing house, but then what do you expect from an interior designer and architect? The beautiful use of natural materials, exposed brick detail and salvaged furniture. What I hadn't bet on though was the modesty - for example how weird is it to discover someone you've known for sixteen years is a talented sculptor/shortlisted for art prize photographer/collector and just basically all round impressive artist? I mean hasn't the guy heard of social media - online networks where you MAKE SURE EVERYONE KNOWS YOU ARE A STAR????? Not to worry Kevin, I'm about to showcase your work to the world on the world's loneliest, least visited blog....


Detail of garden sculpture using copper piping and lead roof sheeting.



Collection of spent bullet cartridges lining a shelf in the study alcove in one of the coolest assemblage of a salvage collection I've ever seen.

Loved all these little collections of salvaged items and the little vignettes they've ended up forming.



The haunting image that got itself shortlisted for the Olive Cotton Award 2009.





A small thrill to see my own work sharing the same space with a John Forrester Clack painting.


Work in progress on the side of the house: an organic design made up from plastic container refuse.

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.
