As part of my recent sportraits series, I was commissioned to tackle New Orleans Saints’ receiver Marques Colston in the traditional BRUTE! style. Keep checking the blog for new sportraits in the coming months.
Celebrate chaos whilst decorating your home with BRUTE!’s new tileable Riot posters. Successive prints can be hung end-to-end to produce the effect (if you so desire) of countless rioters hemmed in by an unlimited line of riot cops or, alternatively, hang the mob and their nemesis individually – the choice is yours! Each poster tile […]
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.

For KMFDM‘s 2011 US tour, I was commissioned to create my own interpretation of Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’, using band front man and industrial legend, Sascha Konietsko, as inspiration for the main figure. The illustration was subsequently used on a range of merchandise currently accompanying the band across the U.S. of A. Media: Sharpie, Japanese calligraphic brush pen, Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator.
Two versions of the current KMFDM tour T-shirt. Should be available from the band’s site soon or you can buy one on their latest tour.

Beckett is widely regarded as among the most influential writers of the 20th century. Strongly influenced by James Joyce, he is considered one of […]
