Profile - I started Rancid News in 2001 as a website before it morphed into a print zine, then changed its name to Last Hours. Now in 2011 I design and illustrate for NGOs, non-profits and anyone who wants to change the world at www.eddbaldry.co.uk. I still draw comics sometimes as Hey Monkey Riot.

The city goes smash

November 19th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

I’ve always found renaissance artwork fascinating; or at least their determination to personify everything from Ovid to the New Testament. This is a poster I’m working on personifying ‘retribution’. I’m not at all happy with the colour yet; I think I’ll probably have to add a fourth colour and start playing around with different overlays [...]

Celebrate people’s history

November 15th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

Josh MacPhee from Just Seeds asked me a really long time ago to make a poster for the Celebrate People’s History project. To be honest I struggled pretty badly with it (and I’m not 100% sure about the result – and I’m not sure if Josh is going to use it), but since I haven’t [...]

A subdued welcome to NATO

November 14th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Articles · photo

On Friday the NATO Welcoming Committee demonstration gave NATO – an intergovernmental military alliance between European and North American states – a subdued welcome message. About 60 people converged on Edinburgh to take part in the Smash NATO demonstration, which had called for autonomous action against the meeting of NATO members during the day.

An a to z of people I’ve met in London

October 27th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

It’s Handmade and Bound this weekend, and I’m finally getting together a booklet of my alphabet print together for it.

It’s going to be 32 pages, full colour and generally looking very nice on thick, uncoated paper like Natalie and I used for the London Ladyfest 2008 programme.

If you buy copies of both Morgenmuffel and Excessive [...]

The death of Ian Tomlinson

October 16th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

Excessive Force is off to the printers, and frankly, though I would say so, I’m really, really excited about seeing it in print. The quality of the comics in it are amazing; it’s going to be one very cool anthology.
Here’s a sneak peak at some of the pages in my 22 page piece titled The [...]

Colonialists bleed red

October 2nd, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

I printed this in spring, and then promptly forgot about it.
I’m currently reading Bury my heart at wounded knee, which reminded me about it. It’s about the near annihilation of the native American communities between 1860 and 1890. A litany of broken promises, murders, attacks and wanton destruction.  There’s a pretty large part of me [...]

Hey Monkey Riot! riot!

September 26th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Blogs · Hey Monkey Riot

This was one of the ideas that I was working on for the cover of Excessive Force, it’s not the one we’ve ended up using (that’ll get officially unveiled sometime later I guess), but I thought it was cool so thought I’d post it here. All I have to do now is make it to [...]
