In no particular order – here’s some stuff been going on over the last few weeks;
Escape from Barbican
Had a peek at the Richard Prince exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery. Some great images, a lot of his weird ‘Hood’ series; basically primered bonnets with body-filler. Unfortunately got busted taking pics of various pics. Major bugbear – why stop someone (quite clearly not a professional photographer) taking a snap on their phone? It’s not like i’ll be slling the shots and making money from it. Anyway…the graphic stencil idea’s something i’ve wanted to do since Coventry days;
- Richard Prince
- Price Buick detail
Tootled along to the London MotorShow. Compared to other international shows this one doesn’t really compare, and also can’t make its mind up as to whether it’s a day out for the kids or a proper new-car-launch industry event. To be honest was most impressed by the classic cars outside – this little Porker caught my eye..

Got down to the BigChill festival last weekend. Highlight was Luke Vibert and Cornelius. Cornelious did a crazy AV set mixing lush Japanese animation with a sound-clash of leccy guitar and 70’s melody. Vibert rocked. The event surprised me by being almost tooo Chilled…not a lot going on, but a fantastic venue.
Big Chill Sun
Weekend trip to Islay with the K-z man, master of whisky and all fine things in life. Toured the distilleries and recieved my MA in whisky studies, all in the space of 48 hours! Laphroig proved the hit for me, a peaty symphony with an exceptionally long finish…apparently.
