Over the last few decades since the publication of the Sphere paperback, we have attempted to find a new publisher to reprint the stories from my BRUTE! magazine into one volume. After being turned down by several companies, we have secured the services of Eyewear Press and I’m proud to announce that the book will be on the shelves in May 2020. Featuring all the stories from the seven BRUTE! pulp magazines and the paperback plus the short stories from Blitz and BIKE magazines, this is a comprehensive collection that includes several never before published yarns and illustrations.

I have recently been commissioned by a client to embark on a series of portraits of his favourite musicians, the second of which is this handsome portrait of Laibach front man, Milan Fras.
Anyone interested in posters or prints of this epic illustration, please message me here or contact me at email@example.com for ordering details.
Over the last couple of months, I have been assembling images for inclusion in the forthcoming BRUTE! art book and I’ve been quite surprised at how difficult it’s been locating hi-resolution copies of my work from the 80s and 90s (much of it lost to corrupt back-up discs etc.). Of those I was able to source, several files had to be extensively repaired, many of the album covers from that period requiring major re-rendering to make them usable for publication.
There is still much restoration work to be done before the book goes to print next year but am now able to offer BRUTE! fans the chance to get their hands on one of these glorious vector-rendered versions, available as signed canvas prints. For details on how to order yours, please PM me here or order yours direct from the blog shop. http://joef27.sg-host.com/?wpsc_product_category=prints-categories&paged=4

To commemorate the passing of one of the greatest hit men ever to grace the screen, I created this vector illustration of steely ex-cop turned meth dealer muscle, Mike Ehrmantraut, again represssing the urge to blow Walter White’s scheming brains out.
He shall be sorely missed.
Prints of the Breaking Bad character are available from the blog shop.
I was asked by several people why I hadn’t yet created a portrait of basketball wunderkind, Jeremy Lin, so I illustrated this portrait of him while his star was still in the ascendancy. While I originally planned to draw the sportsman in a Chinese Communist propaganda style, the resulting sketches didn’t quite capture his down-to-earth personality nor the messianic zeal with which so many of his fans across the world regard him.
I hope I have done him justice.
The poster is available from the blog shop in either canvas or photo stock.

It’s been almost 20 years since I last created a portrait of Tony Montana (Scarface), surely one of the most iconic characters ever to have blasted their way out of a movie screen.
Since its less-than prestigious reception in 1983, Brian De Palma’s blazing gangster epic has become even more famous than its illustrious genre forebear, The Godfather, and remains one of the most influential (and oft-quoted) films of all-time.
