FUTURE PROBLEMS

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

Quick one from the back of my sketchbook.

TRUTH IN ADVERTISING

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

Advertising doesn't just distort the truth, the lies told by adverts distort reality.⁠ "It is important to bear in mind that political campaigns are designed by the same people who sell toothpaste and cars." - Noam Chomsky Similar projects on my subvertising page here.

RARE BOOKS/MANUSCRIPTS

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

Due to a clerical error of some kind, three of my 'books' have been acquired by the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University. Get in the historical record you little bastards! If you'd like them for your own self you can order here.

SERCO BUS STOP AD

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

My Serco ad now in bus stops thanks to Special patrol Group. More on my subvertising page.

VITAMIN D3

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

They've only gone and put me in a proper art book. Right next to Robert Crumb too, AND I'm on page 69 which is objectively the funniest number in the alphabet. It's called Vitamin D3 and is published by Phaidon.

SERCO

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

Serco's failed Test-and-Trace system costs billions and reaches just 62% of contacts, compared to UK local authorities who, despite being denied access to central government data and given just £300 million in funding have managed to reach 97% of contacts.

2021 INTO THE THUNDERDOME

2020

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

New stickers arrived from the printers today. Available here.

HSBC

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

I designed this poster as part of Brandalism's new subvertising campaign targeting HSBC's risible claims to be an ethical bank while investing in fossil fuels, arms companies, and laundering money for the world's worst criminals. See below for more readable poster text. My design went up in Leeds, Sheffield and on the London underground but there's a load of great posters by different artists in the campaign. Across 10 UK cities activists took over 250 billboards and bus stops with satirical HSB

THE MARKET FINDS A WAY

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

LANDLORDS

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

A new poster inspired by a conversation with me mate Amy Smith who's been organising with the London Renters Union. You can download a printable version of the poster from my subvertising page (for non-commercial use only)

SURRENDER

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

All the flags US astronauts planted on the moon are, by now, bleached white by the sun. In hundreds of millions of years, after every trace of civilisation has been wiped from the surface of the earth, these flags will remain on the moon as a final monument to human existence. That and, tragically, two copies of Richard Nixon's autograph.

TOMORROW'S WEATHER

JIGSAW JIGSAW

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

If you'd like to populate your nightmares, or the nightmares of your loved ones, with the endless frustration of a recursive jigsaw jigsaw, I've started a Kickstarter to get these made up: www.kickstarter.com/projects/darrencullen/jigsaw-jigsaw

COPPERS

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

Anyone fancy posting this in some boomer groups on Facebook?

HONEST FIREWORKS

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

Surprisingly honest fireworks display I went to the other night.

YOUR AD HERE

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

Corporations and woke ad campaigns will not save us. A corporation legally cannot take a stand for anything except shareholder value. Their campaigns are simply attempts at commodifying and neutering political movements. We can't buy our way to a better world. More subvertising.

SHELL X PRIDE

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

Great to seen Shell showing support for #Pride this year by committing substantial resources towards changing the world. More from this project here.

AD SPACE HACK PACK ORDERS

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

If you're still waiting on an Ad Space Hack Pack order please bear with me, it had 400+ orders, far more than I was prepared for, so been working through the backlog. Two post bags gone out this week, waiting on key restock then will post the last 100 envelopes out next week latest. I've taken the listing off my shop because I reached quite a bit past the limit of what I can afford to refund. I may add them again once I clear the backlog. I'll be posting photos as they come in here.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

The keys to open bus stops are now available from my website shop, if you use them to put up a black lives matter poster I'll refund the cost of the pack - just email me a photo. You can paint or draw on the back of the original posters you find in the bus stops. Every poster you put up gives you another poster to adjust. Let's cover the streets.


If you can afford to please donate to US protester bail funds and write to your MP! Let's not pretend that racist police violence is just an American

SUNDAY TIMES EAT THE RICH LIST

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

There's something weird about this year's Sunday Times Rich List

DOMINIC CUMMINGS

Businesswomen Walking in Hallway

Not sure why Dominic Cummings tested his eyesight by driving 30 miles to Barnard Castle when he could have taken this simple eyesight test.
