'Open Studios this Weekend...'

Try a relaxed approach to the festive period & pop to 'Great Western Studios' this coming weekend for our annual Christmas Open. The studios have grown vastly in the last year so lots of new bits & bobs for everyones perusal. Myself & Sophie Smallhorn have gotten together creatively, (festively even, could be the appropriate word) although there are no Santas hats on our tea towels.. Bah!
December 3rd & 4th, 12 - 6pm both days.

'Living in Patterns'

Pollyn's latest album 'Living in Patterns' holds this weeks grand accolade of being Rough Trade's record of the week. That's pretty high praise in my book. Art Director Adam Weissman is one of the bands three members. Our creative relationship stems mainly from our collaborative work with Stussy. With a title that couldn't feel more apt to oil my creative juices, I relished the opportunity to create their sleeve art. Read what they have to say here, its all good.

'Things & People'

I totally forgot to tell of Sandy Suffields unique little blog 'Things & People'. Introduced to each other via Sophie Smallhorn, a mutual friend & hugely impressive silkscreen artist & sculptor. Her premise is for you to pick a thing that has been influential in your life, accompanied by its story. There are a lot of real weepies.. so tissues to the ready. Not for mine though, its just one more tale of sibling rivalry. A consistent fave of mine is Chris, whose friend grabbed a crisp from a bag that was his doppelgänger. Such luck!
