Ex Virtus Back On Track

Over the last few months, we at Ex Virtus have been struggling to move things along. We have not been able to give the Project the time has been asking for.
Things have taken a turn for the better in the last week or two and we are now looking for a Dec 1st release of the Website with 5 designs ready to buy in time for you to get your presents for Christmas.

Here is an early drawing of one of the designs, 'child on the river'
keep watching this space for more news of the launch.

The lazerian design team have packed up and gone to London town to display their collective talents to the rest of the world at the prestigious 100% design show.
To help show off their talents they have lovingly put together a newspaper outlining the Lazerian way of life, which i am pleased to say has a small feature on the wall piece i created for the studio a few months back, a lovely surprise to say the least.
As far as i know Lazerian are making waves at the show already, featuring in a number of newspaper and magazine articles.

go to the lazerian blog on
to download the e paper and get a look at the articles and some tasty lazerian design.

In the process.....

iv been very busy recently. I am, with a friend, in the process of setting up a small venture, by the name of Ex Virtus. its time consuming, complex and frustrating, there is still along way to go, but i can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

no new work i want to show you yet but maybe a sneak peak at an early design for the First tshirt and print we are releasing under the ExVirtus banner.

Michael schall. impressive

Saw michael schall's work at the Urbis, Manchester the other day. He produces huge pencil drawings and etchings, combining natural landscapes with man made structures. love his style and the worlds he creates within his works. dark, epic and forboding. check him out at

best seen in the papery flesh if you get chance.
