I have family in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, so whenever I have visited them in the last few years I've made time to meet up with regular Sideburn collaborator, Ryan Quickfall. His studio is on the fifth floor of a building, with no working lift (elevator), in the city centre. He currently shares the space with photographer, and Sideburn contributor, Tom Bing and signwriter Ashley Willerton.
On the most recent visit, a couple of weeks ago, I took these photos of the shared workspace. That's Ryan, above, with Maggie, the dog he and his soon to be wife, Kay rescued.

Ryan constantly works, for clients and also trying new techniques. There is hardly a day goes buy that he has created something.

Don't forget the new Pushing The Envelope art print we've just put on the market. Go to sideburn.bigcartel.com to buy.
