So been beavering away, making stuff for Fuji Rock festival and getting the show together for Tokyo on the 2nd of August. The shippers have just taken the canvases, the spray paints ordered and last minute prizes for the high strikers are being made. I wouldn’t of guessed that i would have traveled to japan for the first time with a fire bell and a large rubber mallet in my bags but that’s the life of a traveling showman for you. The above shot is the last frame in of a time lapse that Calum and Saft films helped make to promote the Show, should be posted online soon (hi res version here). Well thats almost it, got the last mad run around picking up the odds and sods for both the High Strikers and the show and then its on the plane, the next post will be from Japan, but here’s a sneak peek at some of the new work for the show in japan.
Suppose its the right year to be messing with this sort of thing. Remember, I’m in East London, in a Diamond Jubilee year, you can’t help but want to take some of these icons and make them your own.
A couple of years ago i got some skateboard blanks from Shit Skateboards in Stavanger. This blank has been knocking around the studio since then, till last night.
Well yesterday was mental! The response to the release of Dreams of Louie V print edition outstripped any expectations that i had, taking 10 hours to sell out completely. Thanks to everyone who bought one! It’s going to take a week or so to wade through the orders….my poor local post office, i can imagine their faces already, as i walk in with 36 tubes to send out Special delivery.
Thanks once again to everyone who bought one!
Since last summer i have been getting requests for this image The Dreams of Louis V to be released as a silkscreen print. It was a very popular canvas from last years Outside in show in Stavanger, Norway. The various colours in the florets would have meant multiple screens at an incredible cost.
The solution seemed to be a hand finished silkscreen edition. Printed by those nice chaps down at Another fine mesh on Arches 88 blanc cotton rag stock, 56cm x 76cm (22″ x 30″) with a deckled edge all the way round.
Then hand finished in the studio in depths of Barking
