Whole thing to follow. Sooooooooon….

 

The why? of the quiet.

Boy, oh boy, it sure has been quiet here for a while. For multiple reasons:

1: I went on holiday

2: Work got crazy (im talking 15h days 15 days straight crazy)

3: Work got normal, i needed a break.

4: I started working on something i still can’t share.

5: I started working on something im about to share (see below)

6: Some people had babies they need cards and stuff.

7: I cut my finger. See below below for graphic image (warning: graphic image)

New work for Metric summer pop up on Columbia Rd opening tomorrow! (more to follow)

I cut my finger at work and had to have 6 stitches and the nail taken off (its back on now, temporarily)

I’m thinking it should be in a new print.

Nail now black and red. Named it.Frankenfinger.

Here is another picture from the shop to help you get over the trauma of my finger.

2012 in theory!!

Happy New Year!!! I’ve just posted the 2011 numbers and they are not great… its been a sloppy year, especially on the blog side of things. But it was not all bad:

Along with Metric Collective I took part in two exhibits, and from that I sold some work and got some interests. 2012 will bring more Metric (see details further down).

I got a new job that I actually like; as a sign writer and store artist at Whole Foods Marker! Its part time so in theory I still.have time to do my own work!
Soon the better bags I designed will be available in all the London stores, so if you feel like your life is missing a patriotic London reusable bag: watch this space!

I’ve made very little new work this year but that’s what 2012 is all about!!

I’ve decided to focus on one series of work this year: Portals. At least that’s what my BA tutor called them… The circles that have been mirrored 4, 6, 8 or 10 times. Only I’m thinking more digital and drawn and less photo-y.

Metric Collective is opening the pop up shop again this year, on Columbia road, in july and august and I’m hoping I’ll have some work ready to show there. With the Olympics it will hopefully be a busy space!

And 2012 is all about the blogging and the tweeting and all that jazz.

On the personal side I intend to eat less potato and cycle more.
Lets cross our fingers!

Happy New Year!
