On this website you will find information about my work in design, illustration and art direction, books published by Thames and Hudson, contributions to various publications, and lecturing on design and the arts.

My main career focus is as designer, illustrator and art director for clients past and present including Real World, Womad, BBC, Habitat, EMI Records, Swatch, Cheltenham Festivals, Soil Association, Modern Art Oxford and the Arnolfini Gallery.  High profile projects include the iconic Blur Think Tank album. I also work with international contemporary artists in an art direction role for clients including Pictures On Walls and Choque Cultural.

In 2002 my first book, Stencil Graffiti was published by Thames and Hudson worldwide. This was followed by Street Logos (2004), Graffiti Brasil (2005), Street Sketchbook (2007), Street Sketchbook: Journeys (2010) and Raw + Material + Art (2012). My most recent book Big Art / Small Art was recently published in September 2014.  I also often contribute to arts and design publications such as Juxtapoz and Creative Review.

For several years I have lectured on the arts for institutions such as Tate Modern, the ICA and the Arnolfini, and on design at universities and colleges including the RCA.
