As part of my new creative development I am featuring people who I find inspiring and that keep me going within my practice. This will continue on a weekly basis on this blog so keep them little peeepy peepers peeled.
I met Mr Hass from SuperCraft studio when I moved to Islington Mill. Based in the one69a studio we’ve become suuuuper good friends and admires of each others work and ideas. Every time he has some new work I take photographs of the items to go onto his website. From t-shirts, bespoke back gammon boards, zines, record covers, website design, branding, one off screen printed pieces and front cover illustrations, this guy is an absolute don with design, a strong ink and pen wielding master and most of all top studio buddy.
Taking photos of his artwork is an absolute dream to do as the line work is so strong and he just leaves me to it. Without further adieu here is some samples of the work i have taken photos of..

I created a city scape for Teacup on Thomas Streets kitchen windows. Purveyors of extremely tasty cakes, pies, home made food, loose leaf tea and coffee, it is well worth popping in to fill that little empty hole in your belly. They now have a liquor licence and a wonderful ‘Suppa and Cuppa’ evening menu. I have worked with Teacup on Thomas Street for a number of years now creating one off bespoke illustrations, designs and objects for their adventures. My illustrations feature on the menus and walls of their pop up shops and hopefully there will be further illustrations all over the place in the future.
Over the past two weeks I have been busy painting and installing a new mural in the Northern Quartre, Manchester. The forest mural is situated along Thomas Street, behind the metal broom and shovel statue on the NCP carpark. You wouldn’t notice it if you went directly past it but if you looked down the bank.. there it is! Spread over 21 boards it depicts a hidden forest in an attempt to brighten up the otherwise dark and gloomy area.
