Illustration - Seven Deadly Sins

A new Beyond Thrilled illustration, just for fun, illustrating the classic Seven Deadly Sins; Greed, Lust, Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath and Sloth. I've opted not to label them - you'll just have to guess which is which.

Vintage British Airways Posters

There's a great collection of classic airline posters from the 1920s to the 1970s here on the British Airways website. Not just British Airways posters, but also from previous incarnations and other airlines such as BOAC, BEA, Imperial Airways, Quantas and Wilson Airways. They're all available as reprints from the British Airways Heritage Centre. I think the four I've selected here are probably my personal favourites.

Londonscreenprints.co.uk launches

While I was moving my Beyond Thrilled website the other week I was offered a free domain name by the hosting company, and to my surprise Londonscreenprints.co.uk was available, so I took it. I thought it might be quite useful to put together a showcase of screenprints of London by other screenprinters, and to see if having the all in one place would benefit us all in terms of exposure and sales.

The website went live yesterday and has already had a good bit of attention on Twitter. It currently includes prints by Jayson Lilley, Emily Parker, Kim-Leigh Pontin, Todd Stewart, NigelDK and Ork Posters, as well as my own London screenprints, and later today I'll be adding several screenprints by LucyLovesThis. Hopefully there will be other screenprinters out there who will be happy to be included in this little project.

New Beyond Thrilled website

Ta-daah! The new Beyond Thrilled website is now live, showcasing my screenprints and illustration work. It's actually been half alive for a few weeks but I had a some teething problems when it was hosted on a friend's server. I bit the bullet though and got paid-for hosting with www.ovh.co.uk (recommended) and the problems have been resolved. It's a lightly tweaked version of the Infinity WordPress theme from ThemeTrust. So, finally everything (well, most of it) is in one place. Go feast your peepers.
