The problem with Charles Dickens...

Did you see the BBC Charles Dickens 'Great Expectations' last night? Yeah the one with Ray Winstone and Gillian Anderson. Brilliant wasn't it? 2012 marks the 200th year since Dicken's birth. He will, quite rightly be 'everywhere' next year. I've designed a limited edition of one of my favorite Dickens quotes. Have A Heart... Available from my shop...

The Problem with wrapping paper...

I sent this off to the Design Museum today. In it 100 Christmas Cards. I couldn't resist wrapping it in a sheet of my hand printed wrapping paper, and then taking it to the post office.

The Problem with the Design Museum... and Conran.

The Conran bag arrived today. Lovely.
Available from the fantastic, incredible & inspirational Design Museum.

I have nothing to say and I'm saying it.

The affordable art fair has come and gone. All the big jobs are complete and a nice calm has descended upon the workshop. I love this quote from John Cage. I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY AND I'M SAYING IT...

The Problem with the photo booth

 Here are a few pictures from the photo booth at the affordable art fair - now on in Hampstead 29th October and the 30th October - pop in... have your photo taken for free and buy a limited edition print...

The problem with the affordable art fair

Yes, I have some prints at the affordable art fair - a fun idea of Hobby's was the photo booth. 
You can take a print in with you and have you picture taken with it - and then buy a print.

Have a look at Tag Fine Arts facebook page to see all the uploads of people and their prints.

The Problem wth Stephenson Blake

Part of my new collection of bags, scarves and T shirts. Each bag features the name and address of a well known type foundry followed by the dates they were in business. This bag (all the bags are hand made with heavy weight canvas) features Stephenson Blake, one of the last remaining type foundries (together with DeLittle of York). These bags will be available in Japan and in the UK from the Design Museum and PRESENT (Shoreditch High Street).

The Problem with rounded wood type

This wonderful wood type arrived from the USA last week - no sooner was it unpacked then it was straight to work. The original design for this font dates back to 1838. Yet it looks so incredibly fresh and contemporary. I designed a bag for the up coming (starts November 2011) CONRAN exhibition at the Design Museum last week and then used this font for a fun poster (it was just for me, it won't be on sale at the design museum), it's a real joy to print with.
