Sweet farewell, Lord of the easy listening groove. Rest in peace James Last.

Final trumpet solo for James Last.

Having been an easy listening fan for most of my life, I was saddened to hear of James Last’s passing.  At one point I had about 30 of his albums; possibly even more, in my collection of laid-back classics. My friends weren’t so keen on them and put them in a skip after I left them at their house for a year or so. Some might say I abandoned them, and they’d be right, but the sound of James Last’s music never abandoned me.

Rest in Peace James Last. Happy band leader to the heavens now.

City worker filmed taking cocaine on underground

Sniff sniff.

A London city worker, maybe a banker or something like that has been filmed taking lots of cocaine on the underground and not really giving any form of monkies about it. Seemed like a good story to do an illustration about!

The Guardian writes about it in a somewhat less sensationalist manner than the other papers.

Trends and Forecasts 2015 – The Public Law Project poster design.

Poster design.

I do a lot of work for the Public Law Project (or PLP as they’re abbreviated to), but rarely is it as entertaining to do than this poster design.

You’ll find a lot of my work on their site and in their publications. However, this time round, the design was to be on the theme of old EC Comics for the logo and header, and TinTin for the characters. Great fun!
