So here's a few sneak peeks of our recent shoot with Jack Hudson for A Step Into The Third Dimension. A couple of months back Jack came up to our studio. We combined our talents and created some vibrant life-sized illustrations. It was a family affair with Jacks brother helping out, the Whitney boys modeling and friends being roped in to hold lights and grab a paint brush! This project is the first of many and our next collaboration 'Mock 'N' Roll' is being exhibited in Leeds at the 'Leeds Gallery' from the 27th of April... more details to follow VERY soon. 'A Step into the Third Dimension' is a set of experimental illustrations created by illustrator Jack Hudson and art directors/3D image makers Lord Whitney. Challenged to recreate Jack Hudson's vibrant colour palette and illustration style into 3D, the 3 artists used real people and a selection of hand-rendered props to create a series of playfully staged eccentric photographs'
Illustrator Jack Hudson has once again teamed
up with 3D image-making duo Lord Whitney, this time to produce a body
of work inspired by the most vibrant, iconic, and downright weird record
covers in history.
Jack and Lord Whitney have created an entire
back catalogue of LP cover designs for a series of fictitious musical
This exhibition will launch you into a sonic time warp where
only the best bits from an era rich in music and visuals are permitted.
Doves will cry. Hair will spontaneously perm.
This feast for the senses will be equally
delicious to eyes and ears, with established musical artists penning
original songs inspired by these outré artworks.
Expect the private view to bring a touch of
Club Tropicana to Leeds, complete with colour, music, and exotic
fruit-based beverages. Just remember to remove your rose tinted
aviators, and you may be able to spot some of the ‘real’ superstars

We recently had the fabulous photographer Betty Lawless venture into our studio to document our work for Leeds Inspired. Amongst the paint pots and chaos she took these little gems, it's lovely to see our little world through somebody elses eyes. You can see her full set on flickr / @bettylawless
Over the last few years we have curiously explored, built, played, painted and created 3D images, photographs and installation pieces, inviting people to discover our slightly surreal and wonderful world. Our latest project, in association with Leeds Inspired, is the unveiling of a temporary shop window in the city centre. But there is something a bit unusual about the clocks in this shop, something you'll need to see for yourself...
A few things that have been keeping us busy in the studio... this week we have built a jungle, made a giant egg, photographed an invisible man, had too much fun with a smoke machine and in general made a right mess!
We currently have some original screen prints of Anatomy of a Lion available to buy! These prints are currently stocked in Colours May Vary a fantastic new independent shop situated in Munro House, Leeds. If you've not already been then get yourself down there for an excellent selection of art books, prints, stationary and the most beautiful magazines known to man all in a warm cosy and super friendly setting, what more could you want?
Colours May Vary is located on the ground floor of Munro House, Leeds, opposite Cafe 164. Opening times are 10am-6pm Monday-Saturday.
Hi there! Lord Whitney is looking for some volunteers and performers for an exciting project, starting next week! See more details below....

(students/graduates) to help us deliver an exciting visual
arts/installation project. The project is supported by Leeds Inspired

installation in a city centre window, followed by a launch

arts with a focus on 'making'. We will be enlisting you to help build

experience, as well as add to your portfolio. You must have some
availability for making between 4th-22nd

all or most of those dates (with details to be finalised).

We've been squirreling away a lot of our new work, so make sure to check it out to see what we've been creating and making. We are also part of a fab cooperative who will launching a new bar in Leeds in Spring!

Other fab things to look forward to are working more with our awesome LW team, FESTIVALS, the sun/warm studio, new exhibitions, collecting more weird and wonderful curios, the annual revamp of LW HQ (we have plans for a mini cinema/treehouse!), living in our Tipi again, putting the ski suits away and getting the capes out, new adventures and hopefully meeting and collaborating with more fabulous creative folk!
