Well it’s been a while since I posted anything on this blog. I have been very busy learning lettering. I have been into graphic design for the last 8 years and lettering has been something that got me hooked about 8 months ago. Here’s a sample of some of the more recent things I have done. Feel free to follow me on instagram.
Goodbye once again to one of my favourite places. It was a great little getaway. I got a very brief look at Rotterdam which seems huge to me now after years living in Lyon, but Amsterdam was my goal. The drunken fluidity with which they live their life is fascinating to me. And I talk about how they get around with cars, bikes, trams, cars, people etc floating around like a crazy ballet of life. Fun stuff and very inspiring. The architecture is amazing and the food is fried 😉
Go check it out if you haven’t already.
Here’s the link to Miguel Espinoza’s Soundcloud. You can have a little sample of his amazing music before heading over to bandcamp to buy the songs individually or the full cd’s for a discounted price. I hope you enjoy this as much as I still do after well over a decade of listening and still hearing new parts. I can express how much this man music has changed my life. Incredible songs played by and incredible musician.

Miguel Espinoza has been the biggest influence in my musical life thus far. I love everything about his playing and his song writing. I have been listening to his music for about 15 years and I still love it. It’s easily in my top 5 of all time. If you’re into flamenco, world music, latin, jazz then you’re going to enjoy these CDs. You can buy Cds here… https://miguelespinoza.bandcamp.com/

Here’s a piece I’ve written and programmed to hear the full song that was in my head. I need to get the sax player on top but this is pro-production anyway. I haven’t cleaned it all up but that’ll be done for the cd version. Hope you like it 😉
Russian photographer Elena Shumilova keeps taking pics of her kids with animals and they are so cool.
I love artists brains. And now with all this technology we have, we can make these nutty/cool ideas a reality. Gianluca Gimini did a great job on these 3D renders.
UPDATE: Sorry, didn’t realise there was a bad link.

Having been into design for a while, this video blew my mind. David Adrian Smith is the designer responsible for my brain melting and I loved every minute. This is the behind the scenes of his work for the John Mayer CD “Born & Raised” Any design buffs will get a kick out of this. Enjoy 😉
What a great idea. I’ve traveled a lot and had many encounters where the language was different. Needless to say there’s a lot of confusing situations possible. This is a great and simple way to communicate across the globe. Good idea 😉
So, I decided that I needed a challenge and took on this guitar solo contest. I started playing metal about 25 years ago, but haven’t played much at all over the last 15 years which have taken me on many other musical journeys. I didn’t have as much time as I needed to get it to 100% but I’m happy with where I ended up. This was one of the better takes, I decided against chopping up all the good bits for one video, but it was tempting 😉
