Bare Bones

Bare Bones Quarterly opening was last night. It featured the work of some of the best illustration talent around at the moment - such as Chris Bianchi, on the left there - and they'd done one thousand original works for 20 quid each. Maybe good for Christmas presents. And you can get a copy of the Bare Bones paper, which is really good and a fantastic idea.

Way to totally rip off John Stezaker d00d! Still sick though

Don't really care what all this crap means...

'In the beginnning was Debord...'

studio1.1's Xmas extravaganza explores Situationism in we hope a suitably random way. We're well aware that there can't be Situationist art as such, it's a contradiction in terms. We know too that, in Blake's ultra-visionary foreshadowing of Hegel ('without contraries there's no progression'), without contradictions there is just no dialectic.

And in the years since the Situationists sought to define themselves and increasingly what and who they were NOT, there can't be a single artist who however mistakenly hasn't felt a Situationist sciatic twinge. (to further mis-quote, this time a fictional character '...only the 'Situation' has grown small')

Straddling the New Year we bring together just for Christmas (not for life) a group of artists who can be defined at the very least as 'not NOT Situationist'.


What's written above is a pretty wack and dull description of easily the best exhibition I've seen in a long time. Go see it, the work's lovely. David Micheaud and Christopher Bond's work in it are absolutely sexual. Bond's piece ERM is pictured. it's at the incredibly hit-and-miss studio 1.1 on Redchurch street, Shoreditch.

The shades are silly

....but this is fucking sick

Really nice piece by Fire

A Really Nice Sculpture

By one of the worlds best Sculptors - Fire


Hello all. These Tees + posters are from , a nice blog by a nice chap called Bromley. They are a tenner and the posters are a 5er. I have a few to flog. They are printed on plain white tees, not raglan like shown. We should all be supporting people like this.


This has been about for a while but it's sick and the zine is available now. So buy it. I think you can get it from It's Nice That.

A couple of pals of mine are in a band called 'My Life Swimming With Sharks'. They played a few gigs in Southend at the end of last summer but were sidetracked before coming back recently with a new line-up and a (slightly) different sound. Maybe a little more hardcore than before but it's still very screamo so if thats your cup of tea, I've no doubt you will like 'em. Their Myspace is:

Anyhoo, Will, the singer, wanted to do a limited edition demo of ten copies, so I spent today doing a run of ten original works,which I was stoked with, and I'm gonna make a little zine out of them.

If you'd like a copy of the zine or the E.P (without one of the limited covers, as they're all shotgunned) give me a message.

My mate Dan Ford from - sunny and slightly backward - Devon had a show at Moot gallery in Nottingham- A really nice, well run space that's on the come up. They're at ZOO art fair this weekend. If anyone reads this, go, it's sick- It's good fun and full of rich people that will buy ANYTHING! Not that all the work isn't amazing of course. Still, Dan will have work there, click the link and see photos of his 'shit'. It's nice 'shit'.

More sketchbook shite

A little bit more from the old sketchbook. really like the one on the right but it's probably a little too small here. weak


Found this picture on my computer from a way back, It's of some woman who was involved in one of the Hitler assassination attampts. It looks EXACTLY like my mum. Nuts!


Some new sketchbook shit. Did the mans head when I was drunk. and the bit on the right is a bit of gaffer tape with a bit of vinyl stuck over half of it so it sort of flaps down. I really like it. Why wont these shitty images go the right way up? Computers are massively shit.

Massive pile of meat I cut out of some cheese old 70's cookery book. Like the Black and White meat in the post"Meatyard" below, I'm struggling to think of what to do with it. Answers on a postcard and you might win a Nando's.

Another new twisty collage too, but not feeling these as much as the older ones.

Like old collages, but newer

Playing with different colours. Have more of these.  

Mr. Meatyard.

Cut out a load of meat today. Haven't thought of what to do with it yet but in the mean time here is some meaty type. I've got a few other meat based bits that I'm excited about so maybe these will be up soon.


Too good!
