JACKIE COLLINS' HOLLYWOOD WIVES dvd process
I had the “pleasure” of designing the JACKIE COLLIN’S HOLLYWOOD WIVES dvd release. It was a good exercise in trying to make something come across as cheap & trashy, but still look “good”.

David Williamson DVD
Just occurred to me that I’ve designed a fair number of David Williamson-based movies over the last couple of months. As ‘strayan as it gets, but always interesting stories with plenty to say.
One of my artworks is featured on the Redbubble home page today. Should really get round to adding some new stuff someday.
