Browsing Copy - A project to save used books.

Roy Poh from 'A Beautiful Design' launched his 'Browsing Copy' exhibition at the 'Useless Gallery' in Singapore, this week. I was sent a book to save a while back & wasn't quite sure what to do with it. I finally decided the only way to integrate the project in to my day without causing myself undue stress, was to screen directly on to its pages with what ever I was working on at the time. Cue more birds and triangles... topped up with a few random stickers. With it's eclectic theme and a beautiful website, it's definitely worth a look.

'Midcentury Modern Show' - this Sunday November 15th.

A quick reminder that myself & James Brown will be taking our first stand this weekend at the 'Midcentury Show' in Dulwich, Sunday only between 10am - 4pm. I have four new Silkscreen editions to show, one of them is a twenty colour Silkscreen bonanza! Everything is for sale and with my recently acquired framing skills under my belt, things are really taking shape. Hope to see you there...

"Shapes are my friends"

A couple of Sundays ago Dan Canyon from 'Spine Magazine' came to film my studio. His timing couldn't have been more perfect due to my impending move. His magazine is the sister site of 'Spine Tv', a new online television station. As uncomfortable as it is to watch yourself, I loved our informal afternoon spent printing and chatting away. Having recently been asked in a magazine interview ...
"You also seem to use Photoshop – is there a special reason why you insist on using traditional methods for an
effect that is arguably more simply achievable with Photoshop?"... it's good to show why I don't rely on the Mac and what a wonderful technique Silkscreen is.
