In August 2010 I designed a series of posters on the subject of mental health. These caused a lot of discussion and controversy, here and further afield.
Since then I have been inundated with requests for prints – sorry if I didn’t get back to you. I have decided to offer these for download (just click on the poster).
I hope that these will benefit anyone who wants to use, print or post them.
If you would like to use them in a commercial capacity, please contact me to discuss options.

Regular readers amongst you may know that I have a thing for lamps. Here are two, very different lamps that caught my eye in the last couple of days.
The first is a very tactile product by Flynn Talbot that encourages you to play with a sphere to change the light and create your own mood.
The second is design informed by nature. This series of lamps created by Meghan Finkel are made from reclaimed branches that she finds on rivers and beaches. Nice.Flynn Talbot, lamps, light, Meghan Finkel, sphere
I was passing through Liverpool Street station and this video advertising screen caught my attention. It seemed to aspire to art. Perhaps it wanted something bigger than it had been given.# billboard, digital poster, Liverpool Street station

I’m really loving this sexy prototype vehicle designed by Ora-Ïto for Citroën.
It’s based on the classic DS model.
And he also designed this building that appears on the album cover for Air’s 10000 Hz Legend’. I learnt something new today.Citroën, Ora-Ïto, UFO
Anish Kapoor’s work is often very stimulating and form-led. This one seems monolithic in scale. I think I may book the Eurostar.
Each year, the French Ministry for Culture and Communication invites a famous artist to throw up an installation in the Grand Palais, the stunning Beaux-Arts museum and exhibit space at the Champs-Élysées, in Paris. This year, Brit Anish Kapoor, of Chicago bean fame, was the chosen one, and he erected a set of giant, purple, rubber balls.

I’m absolutely swooning for these wood block prints by artist Ray Morimura. His work has an amazing sense of balance between geometry, pattern, line and colour. There feels like there something hidden in each composition, whether tangible, or not.

Very occasionally, I am partial to a bit of CGI porn. I saw this on the ‘top shelf’ recently. Check this out by Murat Pak
CGI, Murat Pak, The Node
“The Node” is a project of time-image represented as pixels, which is connected to its reinterpretations done by various frequency artists.
“The Node” should be considered as a virtual installation including a collection of recurrences. Each audial redesign of “The Node” will be made by the pure minds in the list below. A notification will be made when each version goes online.
