Nervy Betters poster

I designed this poster for my friend Henry, based on Ware land­mark Scott’s Grotto, but forgot to post it here. It’s tomor­row if you are in the area.

Enter the Vortex

So here’s the posters I designed for two gigs I’m help­ing to put on- one in London, the other in Margate. As per the press release “Girl Sweat is the ever-chan­ging garage-noise project fron­ted by the 6ft 5” beast that is ‘Sweat’” along with the fine collec­tion of psych and drone weirdos assembled in support. My brief for the poster was “illuminati/​masons cult shit”. I hope I delivered.

Save Water­loo Library

I made these posters to help a friend campaign to stop Water­loo Library being closed down and sold off (there is defin­itely no resemb­lance inten­ded to a certain range of paper­back books . . ). Lambeth coun­cil is making devast­at­ing cuts to their librar­ies after having their budget cut. This govern­ment have been slowly and delib­er­ately destroy­ing every public service they can, if it doesn’t make their rich busi­ness friends rich­er, they don’t care. Librar­ies are incred­ibly import­ant, and the poorer the area the more vital they are. Even with my family, who did have books at home, there is no way I would have the educa­tion I have now if I hadn’t have been constantly read­ing books from the public library grow­ing up.

DIY Space for London needs a home

DIY Space for London has now raised £13,000 but doesn’t have a build­ing. I made these posters to help recruit people to find some­thing suit­able.

Pinup Payback- Anti sexu­al harass­ment campaign

I recently made this poster for Pinup Payback, a femin­ist/anti-sexism organ­isa­tion in Medway run by a friend. I was given the theme of  “girls just want to have fun” without creeps, so here are some gooey, sticky creeps. My homet­own has a really dispro­por­tion­ate rate of sexu­al assault for the popu­la­tion, and a lot of people whose atti­tudes are stuck far, far in the past. Grow­ing up there, and also going back to visit, I have had men say the most appalling and disgust­ing things to me and my friends, far more than any other place I know. This poster (along with train­ing for staff) will be going up in the pubs and bars in town that sign up to the campaign to show custom­ers that if someone if harass­ing you, the venue prom­ises to take it seri­ously, a campaign also being run in London by Hollaback.

Space is Ace

Tomor­row at Power Lunches in Dalston, my friend Melanie is putting on an event with her compadres from the Art & Science MA at St Martins. There’s going to be bands, sound art, projec­tions, edible sugar glass plan­ets, and a very large amount of tinfoil. I did the artwork for the flyer. If you like it, and are coming to the event, you will be able to buy A3 posters of it (a few people asked already). I don’t know the exact prices yet, because I haven’t got them prin­ted yet, but the b&w edition will be roughly £1.50 and the colour version more.
