A2 Magazine, Czech Republic

Illustration to accompany an article about the history of squatting for the Czech publication A2 magazine.

The image depicts a familiar child-like drawing and shows police with riot shields and truncheons intimidating a young family who are living in a boarded-up house. It is is attached to a fridge with magnetic letters from the Early Learning Centre.

The article told the story of soldiers arriving home after the Second World War who, with nowhere to live, claimed abandoned houses for shelter. Thus instigating the squatting movement.

A collection of characters which were made for the Random Artists Dolls House.

Created with Elkha, commisioned by Gruff Records.

This video features music by Blackmass Plastics and The Gruffians. All four tracks are mega-mixed by DJ Jerome Hill.

Animation inspired by the urban landscape of Hackney Wick. Weekend long illegal raves in derelict warehouses were commonplace. Tumbleweed rolled through dead industrial side streets. Hidden pirate sound systems ruled.

These free parties embodied the true spirit of the temporary autonomous zone. Hackney Wick and the surrounding Marshes felt like it was located the very end of London. In more ways than one.
