Once again, I have slacked in the blog department and it seems like not much has gone on behind the Breath Of Fresh Air Design doors. But quite the opposite in fact. The last 3 or 4 months have been crazy busy and I’ve had the chance to work for some great clients from a guitar builder to a cafe racer/motorbike company and everything in between (more will be revealed on those in 2013).
But what has really kept me busy, and something I feel so fortunate to be apart of, has been the involvement with, what I consider to be the best horror magazine in the world, Rue-Morgue Magazine. The amazing and talented team invited me in to help with the design and layout of the magazine and it has been an honour, and a blast ever since.
If you do not know of the magazine or haven’t read an issue lately, then do yourself a favour and pop on over to your local newsagent (or go online and purchase a subscription) and get yourself the latest issue…At the very least, make sure you get the 15th Anniversary Halloween Issue (#127). The brilliant content aside, visually, art director Justin Erickson did an amazing job and it is horror-eye-candy at it’s very best.
So, with the chance of this sounding like a “new-year’s resolution”, and trust me, it’s not, I hope to keep this blog and the website updated a bit more often.
Don’t forget to sign up to the newsletter (left) and follow me on Twitter (@bofadesign).
News about the release of the illustrative zombie book “The Zombook” is slowly starting to hit the internet and news sites.
I was fortunate enough to be asked by the curator, Allan Graves, to submit an illustration along side some of the world’s top horror artists such as Dan Mumford, Ghoulish Gary, The Pizz, Eric Pigors and many more.
The book will be released on September 24.

Here’s a quick screen shot of something I have been working on for a while for a client.
It will all be revealed at this year’s ScareFest in Thornhill, ON this Saturday the 7th of July.
If you have nothing to do and looking for a bit of a haunting this weekend then pop on by and see what’s going on in the haunted house industry.
All will be revealed here on the Breath Of Fresh Air blog next week! Keep posted.

Check out the brand new Haunted Tattoos website that I just finished up at www.hauntedtattoos.com.
Haunted Tattoos are an awesome London-based tattoo studio with some amazing artists. Not only have they got the well know upright bass player Strangy working at the shop, they also have one of the best guys to go to for any new school horror work, Allan Graves. The rest of the guys in the shop are all top notch with some great lettering work from Alex Young, amazing black and grey from Scott Move and some top-notch classic old school from Al Boy.
If you’re ever in town make sure you pop in to the shop. It’s an amazing looking shop with some killer art all over the walls.
“Forgotten By Love” is a new illustration I finished for a book that will be released in the UK mid/end 2012 featuring some of the world’s best horror artists.
For now, until the book gets released, I am putting the 11″ x 14″ ciglee print up for sale in the store for all to purchase. The print came out absolutely awesome and will look great framed and up on the wall.
