McBess, is in his own words, an expensive illustrator and director. He can't be too expensive because his work is popping up all over the shop at the moment. Cast your peepers upon these videos for long term collaborators, The Dead Pirates (he's in the band, talented eh?). Carefull though, there's some swears and nudeness rudeness in there.

happy birthday

Happy Birthday to Me, and all these folks. I share today with some very iconic and creative people as well as a billionaire baby, a wrestler and a porn actress.

Steve McQueen - Hell Yeah!!!

Harry Houdini

Kelly LeBrock, quite clearly the best thing in Weird Science, by some way.

Cheer up Fatty Arbuckle and have a pie or something.

And then this lot...

web site update

My site now has a few more sketchbook pages added to it, so what are you waiting for?...

blues explosion

It's not quite 9am and I'm "full o' beans" and ready to take the day by storm. Thanks Jon.

and Ryan Spendlove (ex of The Blueskins)

and then some Charles Edward Anderson because it always makes me smile.

Bill Murray

No reason for this post, it's just a picture of the king of the (un)deadpan, Bill Murray, in Zombieland. Inspired by Empire's greatest cameos article.
Good film, great actor.

lalo schifrin

Lalo Schifrin, Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, Paul Newman, Ford Mustang Fastback, Dodge Charger. Films and soundtracks do no get any better.

And if whilst watching the Bullitt clip you don't make an involuntary grunt at 2mins 06, then you've not got it loud enough.

cycle sport

Another bike magazine job, this time for 'Cycle Sport'.

Thursday, 3 March 2011


It was a bit of a nightmare, learning as I went, but it looks like I might have eventually got my site (V1.0) up and running as I want it. I'm sure I'll (or you'll) find some mistakes but for now, I'm as blinded by love as the mother of an ugly child.

Take me to the danger zone >>>

patrick ledger

Whilst writting a brief for the 2nd yrs I stumbled across the work of Patrick Ledger. These examples are taken from a body of work created for the folio societies, John Wyndham boxed novels. They're fantastically suitable. Though I couldn't help seeing the irony in spending £80 on three books which have been illustrated in a style that is clearly derived from cheap pulp fiction.
