Going through local stuff from Flickr, I found these recent shot of the Run Hide Survive lads.

The backdrop is an early square fractal design I did. The squares expand from a point in the fibonnaci sequence, cos I was loving it at the time. I'd never taken any pictures of it so was crazy to see it on the net. One of the people who use the space has said he finds it quite intimidating in the flesh, with a giant maroon monolith constantly hovering over his head. critics.

I really like what geometry does to the shape of space and how we perceive it.

The fisheye's made it look amazing - have a look at more of the photographer's work over at chimpola.com. He's taken photos of just about every Sheffield band going and half of Yorkshire's - in a tough game he's got a real style to his work.

You've got some blue on you.

This is where my true passion lies. Getting high as fuck on solvents in small confined strange shaped spaces, covering my arms as much as the walls in paint. Frowning trying to fuck up spraying in an evenly spaced mess.

This is in a new bar in town - run by Arctic Monkeys and Threads lads. I'm really pleased with how its gone, the right amount of fuckups and the right amount of mad stencil complexity - approached it with the same image in my head that translated onto the walls.

They also have the dubious honour of my first ever pair of toilet doors. I've gone off the girl already but more flatcaps is the way forward.

I've got the new NowThen underway - with this absolutely ridiculous artist illustrating it... going by the name of Nychos from Austria...

He's one of those stupidly prolific artists that makes me do a little bit of sick in my mouth, and is doing us a custom cover and poster for the January issue, along with new content from his American shows. Can't wait.

Feedback always appreciated, no point in putting this stuff online without people giving their two pence. Tell me what you think, even if it is critical and well thought-out abuse, I probably appreciate that to general compliments.

NowThen - December

We got Kid Acne in to doodle for this one. For anyone that doesn't know, he's a world famous type who lives in Sheffield and draws birds for a living.

Download the new issue here.

I've spent the last week with my arms covered up to the elbow in spraypaint. This is in progress - really pleased with how its going.
