This is a new framed print available at Chorlton Art Market in Manchester, England. A few years back I spent an idyllic, blissful summer on the allotment at the end of Cleveleys Avenue, bees buzzing, flowers blooming and baking hot sunshine. Mother Nature at her finest, just south of the city, rendered as digital art from several photographs I took as a memento for a rainy day. Swing by the Market for art and cards for Mother’s Day and Easter.

December Will Be Magic Again by Kate Bush has inspired two new Christmas card designs for 2015, which I’ve based on a famous photograph by Gered Mankowitz and a rare picture from a magazine photoshoot (photographer unknown.) These cards come in a 4-pack with 2 of each design in a large, luxury format with envelopes and cellophane sleeves. Ideal for those special Fish People in your life, buy them here http://www.markwallisdesign.com/shop/4586114626/kate-bush-christmas-cards-4-pack/10219093

In dear Old Blighty the general election is looming. This image popped into my head for some reason, and all apologies to Pierre et Gilles, whose original picture this really is. My personal politics are in no way reflected in this piece, but I think the point is made. Change is afoot, Michael.

For some strange reason I woke up with a head full of gramophones and bass-bins, and a vague smokey idea formed in my mind’s eye. Combining my fascination with retro-tech, mandalas and nixie-clock neon, a rather bold-looking music machine emerged from Photoshop in all it’s steampunk glory. This is a collage of about ten separate images, all wrangled into place.
The Cosmic Jukebox is here, and you can hear my remixes, edits and original tunes on my dream-pop music page. Expect “shooting stars and astral choirs, summer flutes and sitars.”
