My new favourite t-shirt

Posted in Art, Clothing, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 23, 2017 by dc

I’ve never been a t-shirt collector but I do take a shine to a great design and have had loads of favourites I’ve worn till they’re faded and full of holes. Great t-shirts are like a great pairs of shoes, you wear them until they’re falling to bits. Many of my old favourites have long since withered, so my latest find came as both a necessity and a delight – as it fits like a glove.

My new t-shirt’s also got an awesome design splayed across it courtesy of turtle loving, Cornish artist, JIMP (aka Jim Hollingworth). It’s a black number made in collaboration with Blackwater Studios. Check it out in all it’s glory (on a model) below:

Not only is it a cracking design, it’s also soft as a hamster wrestling a marshmellow in a pillow factory, 100% organic cotton and completely “earth positive”. Go and grab yourself one before they run out at the Blackwater Studios site.

JIMP’s also designed some badges if you’re into that kind of thing (no-one enjoys a lonely looking jacket collar or lapel). Have a peek at them below and if you like them you can check them out in detail here.

Back October / November time last year I had the pleasure of undertaking a Lynyrd Skynyrd portrait commission. I decided to base it on a publicity shot from the early 70’s. Check it out below and come and follow Dunstan Doodles on Instagram:

New solo album by The Earlies’ synth wizard Christian Madden

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 22, 2017 by dc

Ex Earlies keyboardist and ‘amiable drunkard‘, Christian Madden has just released his debut solo album and it’s an absolute stonker. ‘The Wrecking Place‘ is a 12 track instrumental concept album described as, “providing the soundtrack to a string of unimportant events that took place in Burnley between 1985 and 2004“. It’s a humble pitch but always better to under promise and over deliver.

From start to finish the album runs amok across a variety of genres with ease, tipping a hat to funk, jazz, hip-hop, breakbeat, and prog rock without ever seeming like some rag bag collection of random thoughts. It’s a beautifully well crafted journey through Madden’s musical loves and adventures.
