The last few days have been a bit tough. Fathers day seems to have been on heat this year.

(Forgive me for I have sinned by ©opy®ight)

my dad died over 2 years ago from cancer,
oddly enough, i got a little inheritence which was the financial boost i needed to go self employed and get an art studio & start to take my work more seriously...... in reality it was a bitter/ sweet pill to swallow, loosing a father to such a desperately undignified illness was harsh, but on the flip side i suddenly had this near 'perfect' existence of being a full time artist.

It's weird how things can never be perfect, you take the rough with the smooth i guess ....

So I heard about Cancersell a few months ago and as it contained the "C" word, i ignored it, if i read about cancer i usually cry within about 30 seconds, seriously. I pulled myself together, jesus after 2 and a half years it should be ok to read about cancer without crumbling like a wet i read about it on the flickr group:

Operation magic kingdom by James Cauty

Then I saw the awesome other artists taking art on their site:

And I had to get involved

I will be donating something to this very worthy cause (me thinks it will be a Crime scene screen print)

So, its ok (i love this!)

It's Ok by sighn

Cancer Sell will be held at:

31st July 2008 - 98 Leonard Street, London, EC1V 9AY. 6pm - 11pm.

Embroideries in their frames & Kate framed

It was another Saturday hanging out in the Fairtrade gallery, im feeling like part of the furniture there now.....

I said bye bye to the Shroud of Paris & said hello to the nice chap who bought her, I was more than a little tongue tied trying to say who was in the image, the public either love 'her' or hate 'her', mostly the latter i guess, so I'm not about to admit it here :)

Also, the new Kate flag was picked up as Tim had made a cracking frame for her, super slick as ever, Kate's new owner also collected all the bounty of stuff bought from the show (cheers L!),

i like the way kate has an american flag reflected in her frame, (purely accidental) she did 'make it' in america after the coke story I guess

It feels a little bit sad to take down the show- but happily they are all finding new homes.....


Heres some pics I took of my new framed embroideries, they will soon be on the art-el site :

this week its all about proofing my new screen print for Graffle, finishing 2 flags for the Graffle show, one is a 9 footer so it will take some time...... big is beautiful.

Just looked on the Graffle site & noticed they have a list of all the artists taking part this year, the Village Underground is a great space, I will be making a massivo flag for it..... 2 metres ish..... big....

Heres the info::


After the huge success of the first Graffle last xmas, GRAFFLE 2 is launching this summer.

GRAFFLE is a charity raffle of urban/street/graffiti art with all the money raised being donated to three children’s charities. 50 worldwide artists will each be donating a unique piece of original work, all of which will be raffled, with tickets costing just £10.

All the art will be on public show in London
(18th – 20th July at The Village Underground)

and Bristol (10th – 12th Sept at Paint Works) with the draw taking place in Bristol on 12th September.

This is a great charity project, with an amazing list of artists donating work and well worth supporting, plus you never know you may win something fantastic!
