‘We women are actually very unhappy creatures . . . . Isn’t there another path for us? Is there a path at all?’
I chose Whores Glory for its many layers; and its disturbing, yet captivating nature. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first pressed ‘play’, but as the documentary progressed, it dove deep into a dark world of women sacrificing their bodies to survive. Although the circumstances of each woman differed across the globe, I couldn’t help but feel that they are all trapped in the same place, masking their misery with make-up. Be it Thailand where working girls socialise in a glass cage, while lurking sex tourists select them as if they were items on a menu; or India with it’s dingy cramped hallways lined with child prostitutes.
Whores Glory is an eye opening documentary offering an insight into a desperate, complex industry prevalent in all corners of the world. It was difficult and uncomfortable to watch, but it opened my eyes and mind in ways I didn’t expect.

On Board skate park in Sheffield have recently got in touch with ye’old favourite rascal to decorate some of their fine walls. This piece is a collection of individual ideas drawn together in a wrap around, including ‘The Witch‘, ‘Another Fix‘ and ‘The Stalker‘.
I recently created a series of illustrations for London culture clothing label Snob Mob. The brief was pretty open to my interpretation. I decided to go down the mob’s wife route, showcasing that it isn’t the headman to pack a punch on the mob scene. I produced ‘Mob Bride‘ and ‘Wake Up‘ based on the films NightBreed and Blade Runner. Previous collaborations with the Snob Mob label include Mr Penfold and Matt Glasby.
