The Mr Jones Watches brand is defined by the innovative and exciting designs that experiment with the idea of time keeping. The range thinks of watches as portable artworks as well as practical devices.

heres an interview
with neal fox
for iD online
about new le gun for beginners
Le Gun for beginners
London based art collective Le Gun pulled the trigger on graphic art and illustration in 2004 when they created a platform to showcase exciting new talent in their same name publication Le Gun magazine. If you haven’t seen it, open your eyes.
United by the same niche taste in art, the founding members of Le Gun, Neal Fox, Matthew Appleton, Bill Bragg, Chris Bianchi, Alex Wright and Robert Greene met while studying at Royal College of Art. Democratising the process of publication, Le Gun considers all submissions, edits down and scours the pen marks for raw talent, printing those special few who “draw pictures like nobody else”, Neal Fox. Having produced four issues of Le Gun, garnering a cult following of art and graphic fans, the collective are tonight launching a pocket sized manual titled Le Gun for beginners, a group sketchbook of sorts. The book coincides with an exhibition of works by Le Gunners at Material Gallery, London. i-D Online caught up with founding member and total underground graphic celeb Neal Fox to learn the origins, influences and ambitions of, the explosive, Le Gun.
What was your intention when you first started Le Gun? Did you expect it would become as established as it has? We all met at the RCA in 2004. It was an unusual group of people who really clicked and were excited by similar things. I had always loved Raw magazine since I was a kid, which was a cult graphic art magazine published in the 80s in New York by Art Spiegelman. I hadn't met many other people who were into the same things as me before and all of sudden there was a whole gang of us. We raised money to print the first issue by having parties in the college bar, where we'd do collaborative drawings. Gradually more and more people have got involved and it seems to have taken off. It’s still very chaotic trying to get each one made because as well as the magazine we do a lot of other exhibitions and commissions, and we all have our own stuff going on aside from Le Gun.
What people, places or things inspire your work? At the moment, I’m really into the writer J.G. Ballard – I’m doing drawings based around his ideas. I like the iconoclasts too; right now I’m making loads of big stained glass windows of modern saints - Ballard, Francis Bacon, William Burroughs, Albert Hofmann, Johnny Cash, Jean Genet etc, for an exhibition at Galerie Daniel Blau in Munich.
What makes a submission stand out? We like people with their own take on things. We get sent a lot of generic stuff but now and again you come across someone who draw pictures like nobody else, like James Unsworth and Emma Rendel. We also chase after people we like and in the next issue we’ve got work from Charles Avery, Hernan Bas, Stanley Donwood and Laurie Lipton.
What is the creative process involved in the curation of each issue, and how has that differed with Le Gun for beginners? Each one takes a long time to make, editing down submissions and chasing after people. We stick everything on the wall in the studio and work hard at trying to make images flow together and make interesting connections between things. Someone described it as being like a long visual poem. Le Gun for beginners is a much more spontaneous thing, more like a group sketchbook. It’s published in Sweden and it’s a bit of a smorgasbord!
Le Gun for beginners opens today and runs until 18 December 2010.

Heres a little
rewiew from artwensday
website of bare bones show
15 NOV 2010 – 25 NOV 2010
RED GALLERY, RIVINGTON STREET, SHOREDITCH
Ah, Bare Bones – they know how to make a magazine, and they certainly know how to throw a party. We went down to their latest effort at Red Gallery this Friday and immediately agreed that there should be more art shows like this; a sound-system rigged up to a rickety record player, a full-size tee-pee in the central room, illustration after illustration plastered over the scum-sticky walls, and a basement bar offering cheap beer which, as one of our slightly concerned companions pointed out, smelt not unlike a damp crotch. For some reason, the event’s entire clientele appeared to be particularly well-dressed, although the bouncer singled out one of AW’s number in particular for scrutiny. ‘How long’d it take you to get dressed?’ he asked, brow furrowed as though looking at a previously undiscovered species of animal. ‘You is like Lady Gaga, if Lady Gaga looked less like a man.’
Foppishness appeared to be the order of the day in Robert Rubbish’s solo room, however, as we noticed more than a few references to the late, great departed Sebastian Horsley, the self-proclaimed Dandy in the Underworld; Rubbish’s flesh-coloured skull with dildo-shaped horns drew the most attention, with guests overheard speculating on its usefulness as the subject of some gothic porn. ‘You could cover a whole skeleton in penises, probably.’ one slightly inebriated man added sagely, nodding and looking into some distant and, we imagine, terrifying future. ‘Even the fingers. Imagine that.’
Thank you kindly, sir, but we’d rather not.

Keywords: bare bones schadelfick skull fuck the tory party red star gallery shoreditch dildoes sex and death
Written by Seun Mustapha / 08 Nov 2010
Bare Bones is an independently funded paper for and by young artists in the capital. Each issue is funded by the contributors and so far the group are on their fifth issue. To celebrate the move up to a larger, tabloid sized format the group are holding an exhibition at the Red Gallery in Shoreditch starting from this Friday (November 12). The exhibition will feature work from all the contributors, a specialised drinking / questioning area called 'the new blind pig drinking den' and a full exhibition from featured artist Robert Rubbish entitled Schadelfick which consists of lots of skulls with dildos attached and drawings of skulls with dildos coming out of all sorts of orifices.
Your new exhibition is called Schadelfick and features lots of drawings and sculptures of skulls with dildos coming out of them. What's the concept behind Schadelfick as you intended it?
The concept behind Schadelfick is the saying ‘skullfuck’. I used the German for it because it sounds better then the English. I have been making drawings of skulls for a number of years and wanted to make some 3D work so that’s how the sculptures came about. The dildos and the skulls are, in a nutshell, about sex and death. I am also very interested in the works of Mr. Hirst and just love what he does with skulls, they're to die for.
In the paper you describe Schadelfick as a 'head fuck' moment ranging from being attacked by mosquitoes in your bathroom to the re-election of the Tory government and man’s inhumanity to man. Was there a particular head fuck that kicked the whole thing off and got you thinking along these lines in the first place?
Some might say life is a head fuck. So I would say that just the day-to-day pitfalls of life kick started this whole Schadelfick project. Also being skint and being an artist is a definite head fuck. Of course drinking and drugging can be a head fuck. Looking at Cameron’s smug face on the TV is another big one, and on the subject of the Tory party they are scum who just want to make it hard for the poor and easy for the rich. They want to create a culture of survival of the fittest or wealthiest. Basically they suck.
You say you want Los Pistolos to become its own publication. We like the idea of everything being on the same page though, maybe you could just make one really massive page or something?
Yes I could do that and past it all over the houses of parliament. That would be nice.
I liked how you described Shane Deegan as one of the artists you most respect due to him having 'a fully formed world'. Is this something you're working towards yourself?
Shane Deegan is a god to me, I don’t think I will ever have a fully formed world like his, but one can only live in hope.
How does Schadelfick fit into this world?
I think it fits into this world very snugly, who knows one day we might see a giant Schadelfick on the forth plinth in Trafalgar square or gracing the Beckhams’ or Elton johns gaff.
Bare Bones V launches at Red Gallery on Rivington Street on Friday, November 12
