been almost 2 months since my last post, getting lazy. Quick boring round up, christmas, new year, got a new job as a barman to help with the money situation so I can move out the house into another house. Signed up to do a 10k run as part of my new year resolutions, also said i’d stop smoking, haven’t kept to that though, just trying to smoke less, which I think is working. Started training properly yesterday, can jus about handle 1k at the mo which reminded me of how unfit I actually am, but will be going for a run everyday so hopefully that will improve. been getting up everyday at 8am now as well which is good forgot how much of the day there was before lunch time.
Anyways thats why I feel like a normal person, guess it means i’m growing up (not to mention having to do tax returns soon). cutting back a bit on certain bits of design work, trying to re-group and re-evaluate what i’m doing. will keep doing design obviously as thas all I know, but need to concentrate on certain areas. anyway, enough boring rambling. here’s some new bits.
quite a few here, flyers for various nights as usual, one in st. petersberg though which was interesting. and a logo for newly signed bristol band ‘the phoenix and the turtle’.

Two of oxford’s biggest nights teaming up to bring you something a bit special. Excision the dubstepping beast and Akil the MC from Jurassic 5 playing J5 tracks, not to mention Reso, Louis Logic & more DJs & MCs tba. done some flyers for some massive oxford nights this year, but for one reason or another I haven’t been able to go to them. This one I’m def going to (I say now).

few new bits, also got myself in pub across the road which is handy for the income. design is lagging and falling behind though, so need to get back on it. Also hopefully nother t-shirt contract in the pipeline, need to get on that and speak to some peeps though.
anyways here’s some stuff, first bit is a flyer design which got rejected but put too much into it for it to lay dormant on my mac, so may work on it more and turn it into some promo work, or flog it off to someone else for a flyer. Idea behind it was it was it’s the same image both ways up, which i tired before for a flyer a while ago but that didn’t get used either. so determined to do it again. also some logos for ‘House of Roots’ which is ‘dub Politics’ new sister reggae night in Ox. Also a new birthday flyer for the selecta boys.

been a while since I posted anything, been working on a few things though logos flyers etc, as well as trawling through Gumtree everyday trying to get a job, so far the people have replied I’m pretty sure are scam artists asking me to pay them money before I start work.
still having trouble chasing people up for money as well, but also implemented my new way of working with deposits, watermarks, invoices etc, feels a lot better, can’t believe i don’t work this way sooner would have saved me a lot of grief.
still a few things being worked on so can’t put them up yet. here’s a few logos for Document One, the dubstep duo from Oxford who are making waves, also a logo for 4NINE in Bristol, who i thin are a hip-hop type rec label.
