TIS THE SEASON

I think Christmas is great, everyday I've been eating myself a few years closer to diabetes and it seems more acceptable to drink decadent/ridiculous alcoholic drinks every night in the season of Yule. I think maybe this year its cooler to like XMAS than to be jaded by it. I think even VICE said it was a DO this year and did a whole article about Nativity Garms..


These are the XMAS BEARS, they live in the north pole and have only read about xmas in Argos catalogues and emails, they dont really know what it is but they are both agreed that they really like it. It makes the harsh winter months of searching for human flesh in the Arctic abyss that bit more bearable.

This is how christmas felt to me as a child (I'm on the right).

The XMAS BEARS, killing it (or completely missing the point).
HAPPY XMO

TAPESTAPESSTAPESPATES


This is a design I did for EAT A BOOK RECORDS, a record company that I co-founded with the intention of doing nothing. In the end I did even less than that until I designed this for a split tape that Chaz is doing. I formulated this design having not listened to any of the music, I imagine it all sounds like Danzig.

HELLSMERE SCHOOL OF ART AND CRIME

I recently enrolled in a Drawing BA at Hellsmere School of Art, the course is quite intense ( I have to do pretty much 7.30pm to 2.00am everyday, and the enrollment initiation was something quite distressing involving an aggressive plastic rat that I don't wish to talk about) but I feel I'm settling in ok. The first brief was to design a tattoo that I will have to get on my ankle if I step out of line again.
Non-Gay Love (formerly known as bromance) is a big part of the Hellsmere ethos and if ever a students love for their mates is put under question they have to shotgun a high percentage premium to show their love is fo real. I However will never have that problem and during our life drawing class (drawing from a real life book) I chose this pose and caption as it indicates the pressure I felt under at the time whilst also remembering that it is love that has the world in motion...

This is the culmination of my first term and also one of my first collaborative pieces with Fam Pallet Taylor, though we are encouraged to come up with multiple metaphorical meanings (or multi metis) for our work I instead decided to come up with a powerful image about how religion is essentially about Jesus loving his mates until he is crucified into the abyss because one of his mates was a bastard.
I look forward to my next term where I will be having lectures on "the Grotesque and the Sublime" from Kyle Dave Platts and "How to be a Modern Urban Boy" by T slates.

SINGING LIKE ANGELS. LOOKING LIKE PRICKS

This is a drawing I did of me and my band pals on stage. This is somewhere in the middle of Le Sur Mer, probably the line about John Terry.

GNARPOCAYLPSE

This Wednesday was the Square One premiere and it was the most insane thing thats happened ever. We all went to hell and back and didnt come back, powerwalked into the abyss, stared death in the eye and other sorts of elaborate ridiculous things like that. Needless to say this was the only thing I could produce the day after. Roll on Square One Two..

FUCK MY HAIRCUT

More for FYH, knowing that the band are fans of star wars and football brutality i decided to go for the obvious; Chewbacca in a flip peak and a diagram of the Eduardo leg break.

FNRT

Ive decided to become a Georgie Two Blogs, the other one will be for my fine art shit, somewhat of an online portfolio. I feel like having my drawings of golden bastards and my super conceptual amazing paintings of nothings together devalues one or other of them... This picture will link yous to it, its called Gocolour and i stole the ILFORD typeface, STOKED!

KRPV

I like totally have the internet now so here are some things that i have made exist in the past few weeks.
Half empty or half full? Or a little over half full? It only costs £1 so who cares, down it Karpov.

This is a drawing of a bloody golden bastard i saw on a bench, as you can see i'm quite into my photorealism these days.
One of the best dogs I know.


A kitten sees an ex lover across the aisle, for a moment the hole in his life is gone, he will later fill this void with two beers and an Iams binge.


I cant believe no one wants to save pandas anymore. Look at them! (not so much the little one).

IN CHRONIC PRAISE OF : AKON

Whilst rolling in my six-four this summer I have been continually impressed by the standard of the radio1 A-list. While I cant really convincingly claim that I have much love for Pitbull and his attempt to unite the world with his multi cultural "1 2 3 4 " followed by "1 2 3 4" in Spanish, a la Sesame Street. My favourite line from this song (which is probably worthy of a whole blog on it's own) is;

"Mami got an ass like a donkey, with a monkey Look like King Kong"
Pitbull 2009

Black Eyed Peas have once again upped their game, a song that fits the brief "SUMMER ANTHEM" so precisely I have to wonder why it isn't on repeat on Radio1 all day erryday, admittedly the song loses its way towards the end (NO ONE GOES OUT ON SATURDAYS REALLY, ESPECIALLY NOT ENOUGH TO NECESSITATE SINGING IT TWICE??).
I guess I'm going to have to give some props to Dizzee Rascal for the most unashamedly try-hard song of the summer, if not ever. In fact Dizzee lad in his quest to make the cheeky-chappiest feel goodest sunburnt club banger of the summer which is literally the musical equivalent of a Club Rep stealing all the VK Blues and corrupting young lasses.
But without doubt the standout radio moment of the summer comes (as ever) from AKON, RnB's most ridiculous lad.

"I'm tryna find the words to describe this girl without being disrespectful "

These are definitely the words of a man with his heart in the right place, a man who can't help but do the completely wrong thing, a man ladies and gentlemen who we need in our lives and hearts forever. He then follows this noble statement (and by follow, i mean in the same bloody breath) with;

"The way that booty movin' I can't take no more"

At least we know he's tryna find the words, but that however is what youtube would call a FAIL. I think anyone who has seen that video (i dont really want to link to it..) of Akon dry humping that 15yr old girl on stage to within an inch of her life will understand why this song was probably needed, and it is delivered with such style. The most half arsed apology of all time, I think the drumbeat is even one of the worst ever. The general jist of this apology is

"yeah sorry, but really it wasnt my fault, and that bitch had it coming anyway"

Thats not a quote, this is though:

"I'm sorry for the hand that she was dealt
For the embarrassment that she felt
Just a little young girl trying to have fun
Her daddy should never let her out that young
I'm sorry for Club Zen getting shut down
I hope they manage better next time around
How was I to know she was underage
Enter 21 you know the club they say"

Theres so much gold in here that i cant really go into it, in fact, i'll probably write my dissertation on that very stanza. A line dissing a clubs bloody management style? It does not get any better than that. How were you to know AKON? theres no possible way, If she was over 21 this would have been fine. Shit, she would have been bloody lucky to get the hand "she was dealt". THUS i feel this song is the ultimate manpology:

Manpology:
NOUN
A way of apologising, most often to a woman in a way that accepts no responsibility for the act that one is apologising for, possibly even trying to pass the blame onto the recipient of the apology.


This also makes Akon in someways the ultimate man, and it is only fitting that I close this celebration of him with some of his own words.

"Damn girl
Damn you'se a sexy bitch
A sexy bitch
Damn you'se a sexy bitch
Damn girl"

Damn indeed Akon, Damn indeed.

Another installment from my children's adaptation of "Obama's favourite show" The Wire.

Season 2 Episode 1: Bodie and the corner boizz make an unlikely new friend and in doing so learn the value of trust and honesty.

Here is some things what I done;


I'm currently watching a programme about women who love cats called Pussies Galore, its a classic bit of Channel4 psuedo-documentary film making.I say fair do's to them, if I ever get tricked into fathering a family im going to have to look at means of escapism too. I bet it'll be train sets though.






This was drawn from a picture of a giraffe running, which is one of the most bloody ridiculous pieces of imagery i've ever seen all folded up limbs and long ass neck. In fact, i'd suggest you googled "running giraffe" rather than look at this slightly shitty drawing I've done, in which I failed to draw the body of the giraffe because I started drawing too close to the edge of the page. THEY DONT TEACH YOU SHIT IN THESE ART SCHOOLS.



BRAINS


These triangle headed bastards have been rearing their pathetic faces in my drawings for a while now, I can only apologise, I cant even remember where i stole them from. Cheery Bastards


Here they are again, ridiculous.

CRDCRN

I did this drawing for the front cover of a double compilation CD of songs about the credit crunch, its called "FUCK THE CRUNCH: Songs by the people", features the new Enemy single (For The Lads) and retails at a C-C busting £18.45!

RUT

The fruits of a creative rut; Hey draw some things and colour them in like this!
THATS A BLOODY INCREDIBLE IDEA! ugh.

COLA

I think that the new Coca Cola advert is one of my favourite pieces of film of all time, I'm not sure how well that would go down within Fine Art circles, in fact the chances of me coming across as a simpleton seem pretty high. But I think its awesome, despite the loathsome Calvin Harris being in charge of the soundtrack and all the mega global corporate capitalist bullshit that I'm sure could taint some people's perception of the Coca Cola brand. The new Pepsi advert is alright aswell, in an American Pieco kind of way, but it just makes me want a coke..
This paragraph has reminded me why I dont write more.

TH WRE


An illustration I have done for a children's adaptation of gritty American drama The Wire. Chapter One, in which Barksdale learns to share.

BNDWTH

Holla and Greetings.
Here are some more drawings (on varying levels of goodness and finishedness) from my book, apparently i have surpassed my internet bandwidth already so I am severely sticking it to the man just by posting this.

Ambassador, Ambabsadolutedly, Ambadsalutedly, Ambasolutely,Absolutely.


A bit of a collab between myself and Guy James Mam. ARR EYE PEE EMM JAY.





Fathership.

This is my idea for a film where a news reporter (in the blue) gets transferred to a sports channel where he has to report only on table sports (bar snooker/pool) but when he turns his hand to the games he discovers he has great talent. He becomes a professional but loses it all when his wife leaves him and he turns to drugs. I imagine it will probably star Will Ferrel, Adam Sandler and Morgan Spurlock (or Freeman). It will also be set in the past.


A return to my forte.

TOUR DE FRUCKING FRANCE. ( I will colour this in at some point)


Puppy Love (...her new ride)
Im going to maybe upload more individual drawings rather than them all at once, it makes more sense i think.

I'm nearly TWENTY BLOODY YEARS OLD, which has brought on somewhat of a mid-life/milestone crisis here are some drawings that either encompass, or have nothing to do with it at all.




RENAISSANCE ILLUSTRATION







Excerpt from a graphic novel i started about a man who realises his girlfriend is a slug, but then doesnt mind in the end because love conquers all and she has a cracking personality. Fingers crossed for a publisher!!!!!
