One of the Proprietors of Blackbough is Adam Withington. It was Adam who successfully & fastidiously ran Great Western Studios for ten something years, nurturing the creative community that evolved from a British Rail lost goods building housed under the Westway. Since his departure he has opened Blackbough. I'm delighted to be showing my latest prints there, previewing next Friday October 7th.
The show runs concurrently with that of another silkscreen artist, the wonderfully talented Marcus Walters. A favourite of mine, Marcus's new prints will be housed just along the road at Material Gallery & bookstore. We've even knocked our creative heads into one and made a few things together. If you find yourself in Ludlow next Friday be sure to join us at both venues and then the pub next door to Blackbough for afters..

My knowledge of films is somewhat appalling.. my childhood was definitely spent up a tree. The past few years have seen me play slow catch up, but then there's all the new releases to take in to account. Exhausting. When Nike asked me to contribute creatively to their 'Back4TheFuture' Charity Auction, there was an initial moment of panic. The aftermath is I've now seen Back To The Future II, twice. Nike, Original Film Creators & 'The Michael J. Fox Parkinson Foundation' have combined forces releasing a limited edition of 1500 pairs of the mythical Nike Mag trainers, worn originally and solely by Marty McFly himself. Sold exclusively through US Ebay, all proceeds go direct to Michael J Foxs Charity and his personal quest to find a cure for Parkinsons.
Four Artists reinterpreted the films original poster as part of the Charity Gala Evening in Los Angeles, all of which can be viewed here. However it doesn't end there.. keep an eye out for the Hover boards!

Even with a few friendly Q&A's under my belt now, there's still a fine art to re-reading your own choice words without the obligatory cringe.. At the same time and having gotten over my ego, I love what Pitchfork's very own Art Director Michael Renaud has helped concoct with the newly launched site 'Nothing Major'. Their open Tshirt brief allowed me to play around with a longstanding still life idea. Meanwhile, they were busy customising a Nothing Major brass bike bell. Too cool for school those people and most definitely worth a visit.
