On Thursday, I gave a talk at a monthly Derby event called Geekeasy organised by Christine of Crocstar Media. It’s an opportunity for people to get together and have a drink, and have a listen to a ‘Geek Speak’. My talk was on the subject of ‘Processes’, reverse spectrograms and a sound to image project I’ve been working on, more details can be found [here]


The latest release from Fisso & Spark on Ground Level is now up on beatport!

pictographik has submitted an entry to the current ‘Worn In’ themed competition, if you like this design, please show some love and vote for it [here] – inspired by a vocal sample from the Boards of Canada track ‘1969’.



update: future

I can now reveal that the WIP piece shown a few posts back is for Fisso & Spark‘s forthcoming album called ‘Future’. I still can’t reveal the final piece for that just yet but I can show the artwork for their next single, ‘Come With Me’, from the future Ground Level records album. This has a similar treatment for consistency. ‘Come With Me’ will be available on Beatport on November 26th and features a remix by Rebel Sketchy too. Bonus!

As the post title suggests, this is a work in progress, with the latest version (not shown here) awaiting approval from the artists as album artwork. Will show the final thing when they say its okay!


human butcher

After a brief conversation on twitter, pictographik was asked by Miss Cakehead to make a small creative contribution to her latest project, a spectacular PR campaign for Resident Evil 6 that involved Wesker & Son (a purveyor of fine human meat), crime scenes & forensic reports and screen prints made from her own blood! Now thats dead-ication. (sorry, couldn’t resist that.) The above image is the poster, and below, in place at the pop up butchers in Smithfield market. For more images of the event check out this fb photo set: Wesker & Son butchers (photography by Alex Abian)


Pictographik was asked by Ground Level records to create a piece of artwork that’s inspired by some of Shepard Fairey’s prints.  So, here is the result, an illustration for the forthcoming Joe C release (Twitter), the ‘Shakedown’ ep, available on October 29th. All of the decoration and pattern is line drawings of parts of technic 1210’s… it seemed appropriate.


To celebrate their 5th birthday and 50th release, ground level asked pictographik to design the artwork for a 3 part digital download and [soon to be released] cd album called ‘Playground’. Playground is a compilation that features new tracks and exclusive remixes which can be found here.

Here are the results of a collaboration with artist/poet/photographer Joe Coghlan. We were asked to line the walls of the chill out room of a local night club, the Blue Note, with quotes from famous songs as a tribute to the musical history of the venue.

Image made for bUTTONpUSHER  bookings and promo, used as a background for a gig poster. Apart from the concrete texture, all made from scratch.

Eurovision Infographik

The lovely peeps at Status Social Media Marketing asked me to create an infographik for the upcoming Eurovision song contest as they’re big fans (well… Mark certainly is).

old school style…

Another piece of download artwork for Ground_Level records. The song contains a sample from a documentary about graffiti so the picto-brain was asked to find an appropriate image to reference the sample. After a fair while searching, this priceless batch of scans of original photos by Flickr user JJ & Special K were found!

Another quality pictographik product (their words, not mine!).
