Urban Outfitters: Exhibition

In a stroke of luck, a friend put in a good word and my work is now on display at the Kensington branch of Urban Outfitters! Magic! Unframed versions of all the prints will be available to buy in store for the sum of £40. It's a great store, brimming with treats. AND it introduced me to the wonderful world of WHOLEFOODS. Their Kalamata Olive Bread has changed my life.

'Curio' Exhibition Photos

Here are some photos from the many I took from the 'Curio' show. Please see the artist's websites & blogs for more details of their fine illustrations. An absolute pleasure to work with them all.

I wish I could speak Russian like Maria Vladimirova.

I like it when Ian Watson drinks too much coffee.

Becki Hiscocks knows how to use a drill. She even taught me.

Polly Harvey loves a bagel. And doesn't have a plastic face, contrary to popular belief.

All of my prints will be up for sale REALLY SOON on my Big Cartel store. Thanks for looking.

'Curio' Private View

Thursday saw the opening of 'Curio' at the East Gallery, Brick Lane. After much discussion, many bagels and lessons in drilling, our exhibition turned out to be a great success. Thanks to everyone that came down for the Private View and drank us out of house & home! Special thanks to James, for his help on the bar and to Mike for papping the event. These photos are all his handiwork and you can see more of his work here. More photos of the exhibition to follow...

Minnie Ha-ha

SO SO much going on at the moment that I feel a bit like my brain is made of feathers. A bit like the lady above. Her stage name was Minnie Ha-Ha or Koo Koo - The Bird Girl. A strange skeletal disorder meant she had only a tiny head, a beaked nose, barely any eyesight and hardly any hair. She starred in the feast scene of Tod Browning's 'Freaks' and by all accounts seemed to lead quite a happy, albeit a simple life. In other news, 'Curio' opens at the East Gallery on Thursday. Work is returning from the framers, prints are signed and editioned, invites are sent and bottles of wine are being begged, borrowed AND stolen. I have made a fair amount of new work for the show, hence why the blog and website have been a bit on the quiet side of late. Be great if you could make it down if you were in the area. Private view is 6-9pm Thursday 5th, with the exhibition continuing through the weekend until Monday. See you there.
