The first time I ever saw the phrase RIOT NOT DIET was in 2001. I remember it vividly. I was (still am) into graffiti so was trawling through a Google image search for inspiration, and that's where I came across it... As soon as I saw it, it resonated with me. To me it means - Stay true to yourself. Ignore the trends or doing something just because everyone else is doing it. Do what you love. F**k the Joneses (or is it the Kardashians these days?).
From that moment on I started using it on all my side projects as a tag/sign off but it wasn’t until late 2012 that I decided to start using it as my personal ‘brand name' (I hate that term but you know what I mean). Setting up a Spreadshirt site so I could start to put some of my designs onto t-shirts for the first time.
My obsession for stickers has meant that most of my designs now end up on here, as stickers. In the future I’d like to do some pin badges, patches and prints... I love ‘stuff’ ...but we'll see how that goes.
I think that's more than enough for now and I thank you if you got this far... get in touch if you wanna know more.
…and don’t forget to give me a follow on Instagram.
