Some images from those produced for Man + Hatchet in the early stages of their development of a series of films for the Football Association’s ‘Respect the Technology’ campaign.
The drawings were made with brush, ink and watercolour.
The final film can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=SzKD8o0-NZw
It is half-term so we wanted to make butterfly wings for fun. The butterfly was fun when we did it.
This is how we made it:
1) Bend 4 wire coat hangers into a butterfly shape. We twisted the end of each coat hanger wing together in the middle and wrapped the ends in black electrical tape so there weren’t any spikey bits.
2) We drew round each wing on black fabric and then we cut them out. (We did each wing twice)
3) We sewed the black fabrics on to the coat hanger wings.
4) We drew round the wings again on yellow fabric and then drew patterns on each wing. We cut them out (twice so there was enough for the back and the front).
5) We cut out some white spots too.
6) We laid out the yellow pieces onto the wings like a jigsaw so we could remember where to stick them. We used PVA glue to glue them on. At the end we did the white spots.
7) We tied 2 loops of elastic to the middle of the wings so that we could wear them.
I thing my wings are good, I hope you like them too.

Here are some images drawn as part of the development of Warehouse’s ‘Dash for the Sun’ campaign. As usual the images were drawn with brush, ink and watercolour.
Here are some images from those drawn for Warehouse’s ’12 days of Christmas ad’ made by MAN + HATCHET. The finished ad can be seen below.
This view is from an amazing place in Anglesey where copper was mined. There are very few plants on the site and beautiful, brightly coloured rocks giving the landscape a truly unique feel, a stark contrast to the usual greens of the welsh hills behind.
Started at the same time as the other Toravaig painting, I’ve just got round to finishing it, with the help of a stanley knife to crop it from a wider image. The view is from the balcony of the cottage I stayed in.
For these portraits of two brothers I created small paintings that were framed separately. The unfinished background was left to create a more informal feel.
