I was in Derry last week when the news came through that it had been selected as the UKs first city of culture. The atmosphere was electric to say the least and if you have never been to this neck of the woods I can't recommend it here enough (as long as you don't mind a bit of rain!).
For a small city it has quite a lot of talent that has passed through its gates, I'm really looking forward to seeing how it grows and develops over the next couple of years and what sort of events, exhibitions and gigs will be on the cards, a specially commisioned poem from 'Famous Seamus' and who knows maybe an Undertones reunion!?Maybe it's just my wishful thinking...

We can be Heroes...

I'm off to Ireland for a month which is great, not only do I get to catch up with family and friends but I get the chance to take lots of photos of my nephews and neices. The picture above is one from an on going series called 'We can be Heroes' it's based around kids dessing up. The only downside about going back to the North is the weather but I hear all that sunshine is bad for you anyway!

This year saw the launch of a joint venture between Loaf recordings and Arctic Circle called The Explorer's Club. It is essentially a downloadable record club where each month a link to a set of exclusive tracks by a wide range of great artists are emailed to subscribers along with some nice virtual artwork, a diary excerpt and occasionally subscribers receive a little extra treat in the mail.
I worked on this series with Pika Pika and this months release features a doodle by me!

FSC-US Ad campaign starts this week.

This week sees the FSC-US ad campaign go live across the United States. I'm really excited about this as they have been in the pipeline for just over a year and finally they are coming to light.

This is one in a series of four, each one highlights a different product that has the FSC mark and illustrates some of the benefits to the forest and the client.
