I had a sniffly call from Mr Sickboy a while back and he very kindly offered me the opportunity to not only collaborate with him on his upcoming London solo show, but to work alongside some other great artists such as Lister, Vhils, D*Face, Will Barras, Connor Harrington, Eine and more. Well the time has finally come and the show opens tomorrow, from what I hear, it’s going to be a little bit special.
For full details on the event visit Sickboy’s website, and if you’d like to attend the private view tomorrow (Thursday, November 3rd) please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject:RSVP.

If any of you cool kids are living in and around London Town, then you might want to get yourself over to Stolen Space Gallery tomorrow for the opening preview of their summer group show. I’ll have a little paper-cut piece on display amongst what will be a great collection of work by a great collection of artists.
Pop over for a beer and say hello!

I while back I was given 10 pine bricks to do ‘something’ with. That something had to relate in some way to the word ‘confession’, so here’s what I did.
The words etched in are latin for the 7 deadly sins, and I added 3 more of my own to make it up to 10. You can see some of the original drawings for the screen printed demons in an earlier post here.
These bricks will be part of an upcoming show I don’t want to reveal too much about, but there will be bricks on show from other artists such as D*Face, Eine, Hush, Paul Insect, Sickboy and others.

Busy busy yet again and as a result my bloggage hasn’t been getting the care and attention it needs, poor bloggage. Still got a load of photos I need to sort out and upload to my flickr, more video footage I need to put together and if you haven’t noticed already, my website has been given a total redesign thanks to rndm.net which STILL needs more content and general ‘stuff’ doing. I’m hoping to start selling some very limited quality prints of some of my photography as well as some very affordable doodles, but all in good time. For something else is happening right now that is priority number 1, Wide Open Walls.
If you’ve been following the blog or my Twitter for some time you’ll know about this already but if you don’t (and you should), in a weeks time I’m flying out to The Gambia to transform the village of Kubuneh with spray paint in the hope of encouraging tourism to help with the poverty problems that the people over their struggle with on a daily basis. I’ve been curating the project alongside organiser Lawrence Williams of the Makasutu Culture forest and managed to twist the arm of 7 other artists who are also on board and ready to paint over a 2 week period.
The artists are Eine, Logan Hicks, Lucy McLauchlan, Xenx, Mysterious Al and Broken Crow, need I say more? For more info and regular updates on the progress of the project PLEASE subscribe to the W.O.W blog and Facebook page and help spread the word about this incredible project. We really need everyones help on getting behind this so please tell your friends, spread the word and help the W.O.W project really get out there.
I’ll be updating this blog AND the W.O.W blog as often as I can whilst we’re out there to keep you all updated on how it’s going and include you as much as we can on the journey.
