The Last Hero

A brand new piece in the East Sussex Art Fair in Rye. this is one of two new pics that are one offs, screen print, monoprint and a dash of spray paint. The yellow ochre smudgey background is the monoprint put there to add a bit of texture to offset the very flat screen printed colours. It is an oil relief printing ink, water based inks just dont work, and boy it takes a long time to dry! It still wasn't dry when I did the final screen over the top and put it in the frame,

Opening Night at Old Boots

A good turnout at the Vibe Bar for Ben Oakley's Old Boots New Laces, despite horrible weather. I chatted with the 20/20 boys and we agreed that they would do an Artswipe screenprint which I am pleased about. It may be a while in coming as they are very busy at the moment contributing to a show at the Go Gallery in Amsterdam among other things.

Checkpoint Gnarly

Just finished today this little (30x40cm) print by Schnulli. Five colours laid down nice and thick with pretty coarse screens. The edition is only 25 and they will on sale soon from the Artswipe site.

New Perronet Prints

Just finished doing a couple of my ones for a change after printing a lot of other peoples work. Very relaxing, if something is not exactly right I can decide if its a big deal or not. There are only 6 each of these, I got bored of doing lots of the same thing! A bit silly really, but if they sell I will do some more different ones. Will try and get some more new stuff together for Old Boots New Laces.

Upfest '11

The sweet scent of aerosol propellants and ganja are in the air it must be Upfest!
Fabulous weather on Saturday, shame about Sunday.

Saw friends, met new people and generally had a great time.

Susie Lowe at work, Artswipe hopes to publish a print with her in the near future.

Artswipe also would very much like to work with the Twenty Twenty boys on something soon too.

Jo Peel, working on a beautiful piece in a sunny pub beer garden.  Already a print of hers in the Remasters section of the Prints for Sale section of the website.

Ben Oakley's handiwork, I missed him in full Jusus costume as he painted it in the sweltering heat of Saturday morning. Ben did a version of this image for Artswipe and there are a few left on the site.

Bungle puts the finishing touches to his collaboration with Agent Provocateur (Remasters print) and Matti.

What can I say?

Stars in Her Eyes

An A1 screenprint produced from a collage that Margaret Nolan made from photographs taken of her in the 60s.

Maggie launched her acting career by being the dancing figure in the title sequence of Goldfinger. Although very young she was canny enough to ask for a speaking part, she appears as Dink, who gives James a massage.

The print will be in the Kemistry Gallery, Charlotte Rd, Shoreditch

100 Boxes

100 boxes for those Rise Art guys, nice and simple to do and they look good. Ha digital! Try printing onto corrugated cardboard, I don't think so.
