Robot Rights

This month's illustration for BBC Focus Magazine's Into The Future column looks at the possibility of a world where servile robots are self-aware enough to stand up for their own rights. As the writer Stephen Baxter suggests 'if you're smart enough to ask for freedom, you're smart enough to deserve it.' Asimov-tastic! See further Into The Future sci-fi illustrations on the site here.

Primavera Sound

At the end of May we took a fourth annual trip running to Barcelona for the Primavera Sound festival held at the large Parc Del Forum along the coast. It was a biggie this year with highlights including QOTSA, NIN, Pixies, Arcade Fire, Factory Floor, Andy Stott and Kronos Quartet. Great fun was had at the festy as always with an extra day of recovery in the beautiful city consuming plates of padron peppers.

Tears In Rain

Here's a little personal piece to wrap up the week. It's a simple, stylised take on Rutger Hauer's final scene as the dying replicant Roy Batty in Blade Runner, one of my all time faves. See some more Film Heads on my site here.

London's Greatest Buildings

I was recently asked by RIBA to adapt my London skyline illustration to promote an upcoming event called London's Greatest Buildings on 24th June, part of the London Architecture Festival. I was very happy to do so, always a pleasure working on architectural imagery.
