Here is a very exclusive sneak preview of some of the collection of products I have created from Pick Me Up 2012 at Somerset House, the UK's first annual contemporary graphic art fair. I will be included in Pick Me Up Selects: an exhibition of 20 international rising stars of the graphic arts world specially selected by an industry panel. My collection includes digitally printed clothing, bags and cushions; playing cards and a limited edition series of 6-colour hand screen printed tshirts in a lollipop array of colours.
Last year, I launched a successful crowdfunding project to reprint my naughty playing cards, which were launched as a limited edition of 100 packs in 2008, promptly selling out. The funds raised covered the cost of a full redesign (featuring all new "Sluts" - from the original series of 500 nudes entitled "50 Bucks: Bring On The Sluts") and a small print run. There were numerous reward options for those kindly donating to the project, one of which was a commissioned original portrait. Here are some of the resulting artworks, plus some previously unblogged portraits which really ought to have been added here long ago...
