Recent Work: Fire & Knives

I'm thrilled to say that some of my photographs were published in the latest issue of Fire & Knives. The brief for the shoot was highly unique: take a photograph of a restaurant's signature dish … with models. This gave L and I the opportunity to try St. John, famous for their Roast Bone Marrow & Parsley Salad.

As for the models? They behaved themselves nicely for the most part, though there was a bit of lying down on the job.

Amsterdam

Back in March, L and I visited Amsterdam for a weekend. What followed was a lovely time of bikes, coffee, delicious food (Indonesian!) and relaxation.



The most awesome bookcase ever





Bridge Signage



Power boxes have cool typography

Budapest!

A selection of photos from a fantastic weekend. I've uploaded these with Blogger, so for some reason they're being cropped. Click through for larger, uncropped versions.

Art Wall

In every city and apartment that I've lived, I've always had a vision of one wall dedicated entirely to art – picture upon picture hung much like the Paris Salon.

Here in London, L and I are still working on that goal but we're pretty close. Photos were snapped on my phone, so there are some odd angles and exposure. Sorry about that.


Our main wall as it stands right now



On the far left hand side is this print by the awesomely talented Brian Taylor. It lives on clips inside of a frame I found by the garbage cans.



A limited edition print by Sanjay Patel, who is all kinds of awesome. You may have seen his "Little Book of Hindu Deities".



Heh. A Wodehousian take on a very, very popular (really, it's everywhere and I'm tired of it) British print.



A detail of a print we picked up from the Lyrics and Type show. See the full print.


More once it's all done! I'm expecting another couple of prints soon…

Work in Progress: Party Invite

Some hand-drawn lettering I'm working on at the moment. In case you're wondering, that says "Sissy Drink Drunk Night". You know.

Whoops.

I totally just killed my blog template. It's going to have to look like this for a little while.

Update 1: Looking better. Sorry about the birds and the banner image but those will have to wait until I'm at home with my Photoshop files.

Update 2: Banner's back. Stupid birds.

Update 3: Birds are gone, replaced with an ink splot. Trying to remove them entirely (as oppose to replacing them) completely broke everything.
