Tom of Finland stamps, available from 8 September 2014

Finland’s most famous writer and woman artist was a lesbian so it’s perhaps fitting that Tom of Finland is now firmly established as its most famous male artist… Tove Jansson’s Moomin characters have already appeared on a commemorative coin but later this year Tom of Finland’s beefy clones expose themselves to a wider public when they appear on postage stamps for the first time{ feuilleton }

Comms Bureau

Hey Tumblr friends! I’m excited to announce that I’m involved in this year’s Pick Me Up arts festival as part of Comms Bureau, a project conceived and curated by visual artist Joe Rogers AKA Colourbox

Comms Bureau is a curated group of illustrators, visual artists and graphic designers who take part in a variety of audio and musical based projects alongside their own visual art practice. We will be running Pick Me Up Radio, which will broadcast DJ slots, live acts and special days of curated content, as well as offer talks and workshops from within our space

Before all this can happen though, we need your support!

Please visit our Kickstarter page for more information on how you can help
