I'm excited to finally announce the release of my new 60 page book Black Eye. For this title I invited 24 international artists (all with deep roots in either graffiti, tattooing or illustration) to create a new eyeball-themed artwork using only black and white. The quality of the artwork I received for this project was amazing, I hope you will buy yourself a copy to check it out!

Here are a few page examples plus the full line-up of artists who were involved with the project.

BLACK EYE is a collection of black and white eyeball-themed illustrations by 24 international artists. All the artists who contributed to this project are deeply rooted and well known in their respective professions of tattooing, graffiti and illustration.

The concept for BLACK EYE began early in 2015 when the books author, publisher and contributing artist Kev Grey invited a variety of artists to create a new and exclusive artwork of an eyeball, the idea being that each individual artist would interpret the invitation differently and depict the image of an eyeball in their own unique, individual style while at the same time there would be continuity and solidarity throughout the book by having a strict black and white only rule for all submissions.

BLACK EYE is also the follow-up title to The Cranium Stockpile - a 56-page book released in 2014 for which Kev Grey sent the same medical illustration of a skull to 24 international artists with the invitation to create a black and white illustration inspired by it. Some of the contributing artists featured in The Cranium Stockpile included Ghost RIS, Liam Sparkes, Richard ‘French’ Sayer, Poch, Mark Riddick and Mitch O’Connell.

My new print Stanley Dock is a portrait and tribute to dock engineer A.G. Lyster and the 114-year-old tobacco warehouse he played a major role in designing that still looms over Stanley Dock in Liverpool. Completed in 1901 it is the largest brick warehouse in the world, if you have seen this building in real life you’ll understand its scale and what an incredible, dominating sight of industry it is.

Here's a photograph I took of the tobacco warehouse about three years ago:
