Skateboarding Makes Me Happier......

Though, to be honest, I've always thought of myself as more of an 'aggressive rollerblader'
Last week I was invited to become a part of which is a great opportunity to use my work in loads of cool ways. Right now I think I am going to concentrate on skate decks. So visit my artsprojekt store and check them out, while you're there have a gander at the other great artists involved. Such as Shephard Fairey, Caia Koopman and Jeremyville to name but a few.

Sold Out Tunnels....

The Old Vic Theatre's 'Dark Carnival: Notes from the Underground' was a sell-out success. So sorry if you didn't manage to get to see it. Well done if you did. My work was situated in the middle tunnel with the bar (always a winner) sharing space with Ignore the forecast and their Tree of Lost things.

The Badd News Boys and Good Time Gals sat really nicely amongst the cafe tables and hundreds of luggage tags hanging from the ceiling.

Ignore the Forecast invited everyone to add a luggage tag detailing something they had lost, they then logged it in a MASSIVE book and hung it with the countless other lost items. I was fortunate enough to receive a found marble in return for participating, a nice green one which really did take the edge off. thanks guys. There were lots of other things to see in the dark and gloomy tunnels, cabaret, films, theatre and dance. Congrats to everyone involved!

The Dark Carnival

I have spent most of today in the dark, beneath London's Waterloo train station. The Old Vic Theatre has asked me to contribute some of my work to their 'Dark Carnival: Notes from the underground' event this Friday and Saturday.

Dark Carnival is an exciting cross art form celebration of what is best and most innovative about London, and indeed International, performance and art.

The Old Vic Tunnels will be host to a Carnival complete with a small cinema, art gallery, performances from the theatre world, cabaret, circus and music, and interactive installations. All simultaneously fusing a sound and sight spectacular. What will you see?

If you can't make it along, don't worry, I'll post some photos of what went down next week.

Add a Little Bit of You.

After the success of my mural in the Leeds Urban Outfitters, Kaz, the store manager, asked me to create a piece of work "backstage" for all the staff to enjoy, and here it is. A giant colouring book on the wall. Now all the staff can 'add a little bit of themselves' to the store. amazing.

get your crayons out!
