Lewis Carroll's Birthplace - The Parsonage

I took the original black and white photograph, retouched and coloured it to get a better idea of how it looked when Lewis Carroll lived there in the 1830's.

Alice in Warrington - Lewis Caroll's birthplace

Lewis Caroll was born in Daresbury, Warrington and I created this little flyer to highlight the places of interest. Text and design by Mark Allison, and photos by Emma Smith.

Prince - Why did you have to die?

I created this graphic to pose a very simple question that nobody can ever answer.
RIP Prince Rogers Nelson. You were the soundtrack to my life.

Camille album cover by Prince

The limited test pressing of this rare Prince album (approx 25 copies) did not have a cover design.
My design below, is what I believe it may have looked like. We can only wonder.

Do not buy the Black Album

My take on the famous withdrawal of Prince's Black Album in 1987.
It was eventually released in 1994 after a 7 year delay.

Warner Brothers v NPG Adverts

A brilliant set of adverts created by Warner Brothers and NPG Records.
The first one is a WB advert promoting the new Prince album, the second is Prince's response from his own record company NPG Records.
I re-created these adverts as I could not find a decent version of them on the internet.
Enjoy O+>.

Superfunkycalifragisexy T-Shirt

I created a new T-Shirt based on the song from Prince's legendary Black Album.
Take a look at the alternate colour letters... what do you see?
