Heres some shots of a couple of limited edition posters I've just done (for my brother John Turrell's new album The Kingmaker) in the process of being screenprinted. You'll be able to buy them from his brand new site (which has literally just launched today) very soon. Click here for more details.

I did this for last weekend's cover of the Wall Street Journal supplement 'Off Duty'.

I've just created this artwork for Pedestrian and the rest of the guys at 2nd Drop Records. 2nd Drop have released tracks from Ramadaman, Rusko, LV and South London Ordinance.
The track is a Fela inspired slice of Afrobeat which mixes modern rhythms and sub base to produce something pretty unique. Heard it on Gilles Peterson's show last week and its also getting support from Dark Sky, Djrum and LV.
I wanted to give the artwork a slightly dark, sinister feel with an analog, hand-made aesthetic while still keeping the contemporary tone that runs through the music.Underneath the top (chosen) image are a few other options I gave to the label. Released on July 26th you can pre-order it from the label's website: http://www.surus.co.uk/2nd-drop-records/kalakuta-ndizi-22185.aspx
