We kicked ourselves last year at The Stick Up’s launch when we realised (too late) that we had neglected somehow to invite Manchester’s Toby Whitebread AKA New Anaolog to participate.
That error was not repeated this year and we suspect that his work is going to go down quite a storm on the trail. A strong new(ish) contender on the UK scene, we’ve not yet met the man behind the work – but it’s great to have somebody involved on the scene that gravitates to the more dancefloor and scratch-deck end of the musical spectrum – notably quite a few reggae stars have been penned and proudly pinned in his portfolio and the penmanship is outstanding (if for some reason you need us to tell you that while two great examples hang either side of this paragraph).
Look out for very smartly rendered portraiture, dynamic, characterful and poised with attitude. Toby’s colour choices are often strong primary selections played off with a flat grey, lavender or similar giving his work a certain vitality (and well-founded confidence).
