Marvin Hagler v Sugar Ray Leonard. One of the all time classic Middleweight Contests from 1987. The second print is of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire in the 1937 Musical, Swing Time. All four were light on their feet. It was rumoured that Ginger Rogers was a bit of a kick off merchant, all I know is that she was a great dancer.

These are my latest copies of Perfume. They’ll be in the post very soon. Part research, part publicity. Classy, like a big bottle of Aramis or a Brut 33 soap on a rope.

An update on my latest research project -The title ‘supadudeywords’ is a quote from Kase2, in Style Wars / 1983. I’m definitely not qualified to say whether there has been a decline in the quality of handwriting in school.
Calligraphy and Graffiti both have script styles that overlap. A big percentage of Tagging is based on flamboyant and cursive signatures. This approach to calligraphy appears to be very decorative, with legibility having less importance.
I’m interested in how perceived values of handwriting and intelligence can be challenged if Students are encouraged to recognize and embrace some of the cursive and script like qualities they see in the backstreets of Liverpool. They’re everywhere, they just have to notice them.
I’ve created an A3 page – a grid system which uses a basic standard and italic text guideline and asked three groups of students from three different schools – I’ve tried to identify kids from different parts of Liverpool – Merchant Taylors Girls School Crosby /Aslop High School Liverpool / Formby High School. The aim is to ask them to write on this – use these A3 pages to produce a calligraphic response to a piece of accompanying text.
Part two is coming soon – I’m working with super Liverpool Street Artist Tomo watch the skies peoples. Peace.
More, no parking stuff. This time it’s more of a conversation. I’m not really sure If the writer is going to work ? They would prefer it, if you didn’t park outside these gates. But something tells me, they are in the wrong job. Super dudey word stuff.
Here’s my own contribution to a Graphics Degree Show fundraiser. A Ping Pong Event. We all got to customise our own table tennis bats. This was a brilliant evening, which was great fun and raised lots of money towards our final years publication fund. It was slightly spoiled by the fact that I didn’t win. I’m not saying that I’m competitive or bitter. But my bat was defo the best. It always helps to have a pair of winky blinky eyes. I’ve had them for years – just waiting just the right project. That’s Spence in the background. He won, but probably cheated.
The First Edition is finished. Perfume & Drawing
It’s not a Katie Price blockbuster or Cheryl Cole classic and is most definitely not a literary great, like a Jeremy Clarkson or a Jeffrey Archer. The Drawing is of Gina ‘Binny Moggs’ Morrissey, she’s one of my beautiful nieces. I’ve already started my next publication – Super Dudey Words.

I’ve almost finished my latest research / publishing project - one of a series of personal projects around the theme of Drawing and Illustration Practice. It contains a list of classic fragrances and great scents. Some are from long established Perfume houses like Guerlain, others are less well known. Much of this work is about drawing as a tangible experience. I’m a little obsessed by fragrances. My favourite is Portrait of a Lady by Dominique Ropion. It’s a Frederic Malle Perfume. No, they don’t do it as a soap on a rope.
There is still some sewing and finishing to be done. The first edition is only a small run. Very very exclusive. They’ll wind up on ebay, for sure. For more information email@example.com
No, I’m not obsessed with No Parking signs. Most Scousers and Mancs ignore them. There’s something of a Franz Kline about the background. He was a brilliant American painter that hung out in the Cedar Tavern in NYC, with Jackson Pollock. I went there once. No girls, just blokes pretending to be cool and clever.
