Strange Fruit

Here's a piece I just did for RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects). It's based on an old editorial I did for People Management. It's gonna be animated (very simply) on their website! I'll add a link to that when it's up and running.

Local Hero

It's been a while since I've painted, but the good folks at Peix in Berlin have yet again asked me to do a piece for their calendar. The theme this time was "Heroes, Gods and Garden Gnomes"... I decided to ditch the Gods and Garden Gnomes, and instead focus on "hero"... My original idea was to do a piece on American Folk heroes....who tend to be thieves and outlaws under a sort of "Robin Hood" guise... But in the end I decided to go for something more playful. Like a reformed "super villain" doing nice things...
