RAD UNION

Collaboration

Over the past 12 – 18 months I have had the pleasure of collaborating with RAD UNION on their advertising campaigns, and also in the creation of my own bag design! The pattern was inspired by a recent painting – Night Dip. I often work digitally pre-painting, so it was interesting to work backwards, and digitise a painting. We named the bag Soft Rave – which is some kind of fictional aesthetic I find myself returning to time and time again.

The Soft Rave trolley comes in 2 frame colourways: blue/pink and yellow/black. There is an outer zip pocket, smooth wheels, and the folding frame has two hooks for attaching to your shopping trolley.

STICK OR TWIST

Collaboration

This summer I was commissioned to create 4 paintings for the new Wetherspoons Stick or Twist pub, based in Leeds. The paintings focused on the imagery of card games, with my own visual language underpinning them.

each painting is 117 x 97cm, oil on canvas.

Myself and Benjamin Craven were recently commissioned by Yorkshire Design Group in partnership with In Good Company to paint a mural on their ‘floating office’. The office is permanently docked just behind 46 The Calls, and functions as Leeds only floating office – which is available to rent from Yorkshire Design Group.

In Good Company focus on bringing artists and local Leeds businesses together, to spread more art around the city.

the design was a combination of both mine and Ben’s signature styles, executed by just the two of us over a few weeks in September 2019.

The barge is over 100 years old, and is almost twice the size of your regular canal boat. you can see it from Leeds Water Taxi on the route from the station to the Armouries, or via the bridge connecting The Calls and Brewery Place.
