First up in the Stay Puft CC Limited Edition series is this illustrated Ghostbusters quote from illustrator Thefty. It’s being mailed out with my CV on the back, along with read more links for my creative agency Stay Puft.

Gummy bear fingering issues

25 Jun

You may, or indeed may not, have noticed that things have been a bit quiet on the blogging front. I am snowed under with the Silent Hill cake installation, and of course Cakey Perry. I promise to get better!

Anyway here is a preview of some of the artwork from Cakey Perry by the amazing Thefty. I can’t decide if to show the gummy bear giving the finger or not – to be honest the pixelation just really amuses me…

Getting our (Alice Cooper) freak on!

19 Jun

We’ve got about a week to go before the Alice Cooper freak show auditions where will be feeding the press & “interacting” (don’t ask). Delighted to say the awesome Thefty is working as an art director on the project alongside myself, and she’s even done a post with some great gory cake illustrations, and a good luck message to all the bakers (below).

We’re going for a Silent Hill theme with Mamma Jamma Cakes making a cake bust of THE infamous Silent Hill nurse as the centre piece cake, and lest we forget these amazing Silent Hill cake pops I have already shared. Guerilla Science will also be providing us with some brains! There is a lot more in the pipeline and whilst we like to keep a few secrets for the big day I can share below Helena’s rough concept diagram for the table.

I have even got stuck in and produced 2 Silent Hill cupcake stands for the table shown below. I have to say I am pretty pleased with it (and the Facebook group appear to like it too) considering I made it with some old bandages, chipped plates, fake blood, a bruise wheel and items from my kitchen cupboard for colouring (gravy / soya / tea / vinegar / beetroot / flour & water glue).

Insects & Ice cream

12 Jun

Last week, Doodlers Anonymous invited artists to design an entirely hand drawn spread for their June 2012 calendar page. I LOVE the submission from Thefty filled with insects and ice cream (as a hot, summer month should be).
