Here's the final shot for a recent editorial piece I did for this months issue of Esquire Magazine. I designed and created a layered set, which was shot by photographer, Luke J Albert and showcased Louis Vuitton's new diving watch.

Back from Berlin, fully prepared for winter after 5 days of many layers but lots of exploring (the weather over there was a bit more classic October). Such a great city! Lots of amaaaaazing house / interior / furniture gems to buy for very cheap at the flee markets. It made me quite sad that I didn't have a large van with me and was limited to squashing any purchases into Ryanair size restricted hand luggage. Saw a great exhibition by Berlin street photographer Friedrich Seidenst├╝cker (1882-1966) at the Berlinische Galerie in Kreuzberg - see here. Here's a tiny selection of Berlin highlights.

The Times+ making of.

The Times+ Campaign is now alive and kicking so thought I'd post up this 'making of' time lapse from the setup.

It's also up on Campaign with full credits.

Playgroup festy

A couple of pics of Playgroup festival from the beginning of the month. This years theme was 'British Woodland Animals' so lots of woodlandy shenanigans and tents full to the brim with good music, installations, tasty food and the best of the british countryside. I made a giant owl who took up residence in the "Howlin' owl" bar for the weekend.

Latest: The Times+ campaign

Here's a little snippet of some of the pieces I made for the latest ad campaign that I worked on for The Times; the brain child of creative team Rob Ferrara and Liz Oakley (CHI & Partners).

Four artists were commissioned to produce largescale artworks for the project (Su Blackwell, Simon Spilsbury, Brian Grimwood and me) which was shot by Photographer Hamish Brown. A mass of fishing wire, many a laddder, a sneaky bit of Wimbledon and a very tasty Thai chicken Curry all featured in the 2 day setup and shoot (thanks to everyone who helped me hoist, tie and cut down 8ft of artwork).

Tatty Devine part deux

Here's the final window displays I made for Tatty Devine's Brick Lane boutique. Each window is themed, taking inspiration from the current SS11 and Best Of collections to showcase the jewellery. Click here for more photos.

Thanks to the Tatty team! and the super Louby Clarke, who was a much needed extra pair of hanging hands. Was a lot of fun and great to work with their amazing art jewelry. These were my two fav pieces from their current collection:
