The very wonderful Joey Fourr helped me make some geometrical screen prints the other day - I chose an array of particularly hard to photograph PALE colours, like this candyfloss pink, which has made social networking pretty difficult. But they look awesome, THANK YOU JO!!!!
This one and two other colours, pale seafoam and pale mushroom purple, are available to buy at Smug in Islington as part of their Old School exhibition.
I'm feeling colder and older than ever today - but at least I have been keeping busy. I have a whole heap of awesome new screen prints and a 3D paper pencil case filled with fun on display at SMUG in Angel from this Saturday 27th, a shop teeming with tempting cute bits, I recommend you visit:
This was originally meant to be for those rude guys - for those of you who've never lived in Cheltenham click here to be in the know - unfortunately a little trip to Japan and some awesome sushi got in the way and it *sadly* never did it's intended job. It now sits on the corner of my desk and makes me smile because actually, it managed to be one of those rarest of objects - something I don't feel needs to be made better.
Some photos of a mural workshop I ran at Lotmead Pick Your Own last month - the aim was to give the milking parlour a COLOURFACELIFT. Thanks to all of my little helpers, especially little Hamish and little Rhiannon. And to my mum for carving potatoes with me.
Can I get the smell of cow poo out of my clothes now?
I've spent the last week acclimatising back into London Ways after five amazing weeks in Japan - and trying to pick things up where I left off. Happily, I have a little bit of biznis to attend to, but I do miss Tokyo living..
Here is the view from our host-of-three-days' balcony in Shinjuku (if you ever need a place to stay in Tokyo, I can't recommend this guy highly enough, find him on Airbnb).
Sooooooooo a few weeks ago I was asked by the very nice people at the Artist Residence Hotel in Brighton if I could decorate one of their bedrooms - these were my plans, and what followed was an important lesson in Time Management and Realistic Planning - whereas before I have relied mainly on Optimism and More Optimism, maybe in the future I will think things through more carefully instead. BUT the room looks great and I had a lovely time by the sea - thank you Artist Residence! I could have stayed forever ------ more photos to follow..
