New Work & Xmas Stuff

 

FRESH HELL

 

While in La Palma recently I noticed the Shell petrol stations had these very appealing 2D signs that were just crying out
for a slight adjustment. Lacking a means of transporting very long ladders,
(and being a bit of a wimp when it comes to heights anyway),
I developed a contraption to allow the vinyl to be applied from the ground.

You can see the video of how I did it on my (new!) TikTok page, also on my blog.

 

 

SUPPORT THE STRIKES

 

Recently finished this poster in support of all striking workers.

You can download a free printable file of it from my website, please feel free to share and print one to stick in your window.

A POSTCARD FROM HELL

 

Earlier this month as part of Trashplant festival in the Canary Islands I made this matte painting forced perspective photo opportunity in Los Llanos De Aridane in La Palma, so tourists could take a postcard photo of what the city could look like after a fossil fuel powered flood.

I was invited as part of Trashplant Festival alongside some incredible street artists, including my old friend the brilliant Isaac Cordal.

 

WORLD CUP STICKERS

Late last month I unveiled a Qatar World Cup sticker project I’ve been working on for a while. I printed 6500 of these stickers and distributed many of them resealed in sticker packs and returned to shops, dropped into sticker albums on shop shelves and generally left around the place.

I had some backlash against this from people who thought kids would find the stickers distressing (as if children had never seen a cartoon skeleton before), so I was delighted and touched to get a message from a mum who’s son had found the stickers in a pack they bought from the supermarket. He’d been writing match reports and wrote a special report to bring into school about the situation faced by the workers. It reads:

“A sad report from the world cup. In building stadiums some bad things happened. Workers were not treated with respect and they eventually died from being too hot. Human rights are good.”

 

 

 

 

I made a video documenting the project below:

 

ANTI-GIFT GIFT-GIVING GUIDE

 

 

If you’re looking for xmas gifts and in case I haven’t mentioned it before, I have a large range of unnecessary, obnoxious and infuriating merchandise available in my online shop. I also have limited edition signed prints of my work and some cheaper posters.

Royal Mail is struggling at the moment due to the strikes so its best to get your order in early and 1st class is advised, (although RM say last posting date for 2nd class is 12th Dec, I’m a bit skeptical). After the 16th I’ll look into other courier services.

You can also order online to collect from the Museum of Neoliberalism which will be open every day from the 12th to the 21st for people to collect orders and have a look round. (Please book in advance so I know when I can leave to run errands etc.)

 

I also have some of these NUKE boxes back from the Berlin subvertising show. They’re a signed limited edition of 70 boxes. Available here.

 

XMAS CARDS

I’ve a new bumper pack of 14 anti-Santa Christmas cards which includes the new Santa gravestone one above.

I also have these A7 size Blair family xmas cards based on a genuine card they sent out a few years ago. Sales of which help keep the Museum of Neoliberalism open.

And if you’re a fan of the anime AKIRA get yourself a pack of AKIRA Nativity cards here.

 

 

 

NEW SOCIAL MEDIAS

With Elon Musk destroying Twitter and Facebook sending me threats like the one above (for ‘promoting suicide’ for an old post about my ‘Become a Suicide Bomber‘ Royal Navy poster) I’ve been testing the waters on other social media platforms.

I’m now on Mastodon and TikTok, you can also subscribe to my videos on Youtube.

This update is public and shareable so please feel free to pass it on. If you’re not on my mailing list but would like to be
you can sign up here.

Eternal thanks to anyone who’s ever backed my work on Patreon or through the shop!

And thanks for reading!
