I've been helping my old friend and artist Charming Baker for many years, since long before his stardom when he was painting away tirelessly in his freezing shed.
As well as giving him the name Charming Baker (because he is very charming), over the years I've also named shows, designed all manner of posters, invites, wall hangings, badges, t-shirts and even a car for the Gumball Rally. I’ve regularly played records at his private views, and made mix CDs to give away at the event featuring music that myself and Charming have been sending back and forth for inspiration while he has been painting the show. This is a selection of things from various shows in London, New York and LA.
