In 1917 two girls named Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths captured on film proof that fairies existed. The images are known as the Cottingley Fairies. Five black and white photographs of the two young girls posing with fairies. The photo's captured the imagination of spiritualist and author of Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle, who published them as proof and visual evidence of psychic phenomena. Many people were convinced that the images were real as there would have been no one around in those days saying "they're photoshopped!" The girls hung on to their story that the photographs were real until the 1980's, when they admitted 4 of the 5 photo's were faked. Why did the girls hold onto their story so long? Apparently because they didn't want to embarrass Arthur Doyle who believed in them so much. Their story has been told in movies and books and the images are even more famous now then back in their day. Photography was in it's early stages at the time, and so I wondered to myself what would the images look like if the girls had access to photoshop and Instagram. here, I present my Cottingley fairy photographs.  


Sometimes as an artist you start a project and you don't know why. Sometime it's just to get it out of your system, so you can move onto a more worthwhile project, sometimes it's because you can't think of anything better to do. Willy and his worm was one such project for me. Everyday i commit myself to releasing an image of my characters interacting with the world. I usually theme them, and the theme might run for a week or two. Running out of time, i came up with the characters Willy and his Worm. I had drawn the characters long ago as a sketch and thought "hey why not update them and send them on an adventure?" so i did. But by doing so i quickly began to realised i had created one big sexual innuendo! I mean I knew the name 'Willy and his Worm' said it all, but as i started making the images each day i found all i was really doing was having one big artist wank!! the first image showed Willy and his Worm leaving my hand. Great, i thought my hand is involved in this too. Another showed Willy pulling his Worm and it just continued from there. Once I was self aware of this, i created the image of Willy and his Worm reading 'An Idiots Guide to Freud'. Anyway unless you're an artist like Paul McCarthy there is only so long you can wank in front of your audience. Here i present to you in full, the Willy and his Worm collection...

So the quest begins tomorrow.......

Four small heroes on a quest. why they are going, they don't know, where they're going is uncertain, what they'll find, who knows.

having been cursed by fairies or maybe it was something in their mushroom and lentil soup, they have forgotten why they are on a quest, or if there is a quest to be had, or a place to quest too. Now completely lost their quest is to find where ever it was they came from.

let me introduce you to our heroes

Images from their quest are uploaded daily at

Bunkwaa Quest: four small heroes, one big adventure.....


I gave my self a project some months ago to create an image a day using my characters on instagram. I drew a character on cardboard, colour it, cut it out and photograph it somewhere out in the real world. Enough people liked them to make me keep doing them. I ended up with about 85 images in the end. Here are some of my favourites…..

That project has lead to this project BUNKWAA QUEST….. This time i'm going to tell a little story which will unfold each day on instagram. While in the bush i found a beautiful gemstone that seemed to have no place out there. I picked it up, put it in my pocket and took it home. Little did i know it belonged to a village of BUNKWAA characters. With the stone missing the village is in chaos. without it the villagers are helpless. Four unlikely heroes have stepped forward to go on a long journey to reclaim the gemstone!

Just when you thought it was safe to get back into street art

I was down at the beach with an Awol Monk recently. It was wet and windy; i can't wait for summer to get here. While walking around the rocks i came arcoss large pools of fish blood. Someone had recently caught and carved up a fricking large fish. I had cardboard and paper with me so i took advantage of the situation!........
