'People I've never met and Conversations I've never had!'

Holy Moly! 'People I've never met and Conversations I've never had' is the name of my first published book and my debut solo show.

The book is a 32 page hardback monograph featuring all new work and is published by the great people at Nobrow. The guys have done a great job putting it together and I'm real excited for people to see it. You will be able to buy it at their website very soon and at....

The Private view / launch on Thursday the 17th September at Concrete Hermit (5a Club Row, London, E1 6JX) from 6.30pm - 9pm.

To run alongside the launch of the book I will be exhibiting the original artworks from the book, a number of Limited edition screenprints / posters and several hundred heads. The show will be on from Wednesday 9th September to Saturday the 19th September.

I just finished putting up the show and am pretty darn pleased with the result. I'll post some pictures soon. I was helped out with the install by the Gent that is Sam Bevington who has been interning at Nobrow. He was indeed a great help as i'm pretty sure I would still be sticking Heads to the wall now.

As you can see the Launch / private view is quite a bit after the day the show opens, this is because the books are only being sent over from Belgium this coming weekend. Therefore the book will not be in the gallery / shop until at least Tuesday the 15th Sept. Fingers crossed sooner!

See you at the Launch I'll be the one smiling lots and posing next to the pictures and making sure no ones knocks anything over.

Below are some sneaky peeks at the inside of the book.

Heads and pattern. Pattern and heads.

I haven't posted anything up here for a while so here is a bumper load of bits and pieces. Above is one of the screen prints mentioned in the post below for sale also mentioned below over at my website. The print is B2 sized (500mm X 707mm) and as can be deduced from the picture it is printed in red and black.

These two heads were drawn a few months ago and have been staring each other out above my desk in my studio. So far i think the one on left is winning. They were drawn on B2 sized paper with a nice big graphite stick.

Over Christmas as is the done thing for creative people and those with no money I made some christmas presents for me friends and family including these rather fetching canvas bags. Let me know if you would like to buy one of these and I will do my utmost to make you one.
