I've been working on the new issue of Dysophia, a green anarchist journal that publishes themed issues, this new one being about Migration, Population and Climate Change, and the inter-connectedness of these in a capitalist society. Above is my original cover illustration, later revised as it could be construed that 'migration' is a negative when lumped in with nationalism, capitalism and climate change. Which it definitely isn't. So with the death of Jimmy Mubenga, we changed this for 'authoritarianism'
I also did a series of internal illustrations
And these, migrants blinded by the use of the word "illegal"
The finished zine should be out for the Anarchist Bookfair this saturday so I'll post some photo's when it's printed, and probably get some for the distro

Just briefly, I've a brief interview in the new issue of Phoenix Magazine talking about my Great Anarchists zine. It's part of a whole article on british zines at the minute and features my boyzz Edd and Jimi and despite containing the horrible sentence "Zines are print version of Facebook status updates", it's a pretty good piece. Here's a phote of my interview.
and here are some omg celebs holding it! Not sure who that other woman is, but Keisha, if you just email me I'll send you a copy for free.

Me and a bunch of fellow Camberwellian's (and a few Goldsmith's too) are commandeering the 3rd floor of The Macbeth in Hoxton this week for an exhibition to coincide with the macbeth's film night. They are showing the great 1970 film 'Deep End', and we have all created new work based on the film. Above is a flyer by Ella, the private view is this tuesday the 5th (please ignore the dates on the flyer), and if you RSVP here, it'll be free to get in.
Here is my piece, come and see it bigger and better and in real life on Tuesday, then watch the film. Or watch the film and then come, feeling this multi platform format -will the film be enhanced as you've seen the film or vice versa. Interesting.
