So got to hang out with Ben Drury AGAIN last night before, during and after SweetTalk 32 ! What a great guy, his design work for Mo Wax Records is Amazing! For a long time in the 90’s I was buying every record Mo Wax released for the music and the design. I was a bit of a fan boy at the start of the night as I had brought along some record covers for him to sign. Like the above Money Mark EP - Don’t Cry.

I love being in the Candy Collective!

While the images will not appear in the book, it was one of only 294 images from 7,500 submitted to receive at least 2 votes and is therefore eligible to appear permanently on the web site - where over time illustrators can build an online portfolio of their AI winning images and where creatives can make direct contact with them. news_am27.jpgThis will be launched in November!
