Ok so I've not been as productive on here as I said I would be.
One factor is I have been doing work on another of my sites,
The Shadow Gallery. The latest installment features an insight
into French clothing label Sixpack thanks to some words with
founder and creative director Lionel Vivier.
He's a good guy and provided some quality words and images so
if you haven't already checked it, do so here.
*Thanks to all the nice people who linked it up - you know who you are*

Ok I will make a better job of updates soon but there is
background happenings over at The Shadow Gallery, I'm
sorting some new works for G®T and of course work is
busy as ever. Even though, I'll be sure to make more
And now... on with the show.
*Also the above is a shot out the kitchen window to a car
on fire, it exploded a few times as well. Yea it even gets
like that in Canon Mills sometimes too.

This Friday 12th September at the Art School in Glasgow
my good friend A'La Fu is assisting The Bug, Warrior
Queen, Rob Soundcrash and Memory 9 for some audio
wreckage to usher in the arrival of the new Soundcrash night.
It's on from 11pm and should be pretty amazing.
Also downstairs Baller$ 5ocial Club celebrate their first birthday.

I just came across the work of Melbourne sculptor
Nicholas Jones today and I've got to say I really like it.
Simply the time these things must take to create is
worth a look at his site alone. He looks a bit of a
They do also remind me of Jen Stark who is equally
talented with the blade.
This documentary by Eileen Yaghoobian looks pretty
interesting. "Died Young, Stayed Pretty" follows the
art of poster culture in North America which has produced
some amazing works from numerous people too many
to list. Check the site for more.
Ok I always post things about exhibtions at the Baltic in
Gateshead and never actually make it down but I am
definitely going to try and make the Yoshitomo Nara show
before it ends on the 26th October. Being that the previous
post is in Newcastle then a double header could be on the
cards. We'll see if I do.

Well here it the main reason this site has seen a slow down.
I have recently launched an new online showcase/magazine
for art, design and anything else I'm into. It is called ::
The Shadow Gallery
The first two profiles are up courtesy of O.Two [rockGroup™]
and Tommy Perman [Surfacepressure] with more already in
the making. Have a peek and a read and see what you think.
That's it for now, happy?
Above is a section from a yacht called "Guilty" which
was an exterior decorated by Jeff Koons. It also features
the work of Sarah Morris which is where the it gets it's
name. Check out the pics and make up your own mind.
Personally I wouldn't own it.
Ok so I've been getting heat for not a single post in August
well here are a few so I've at least got some scores on the
boards. I have been doing stuff (later) so don't worry.
First up, check out this crazy itme from Hideo Kanbara.
It's multi-layered similar to plywood, but each layer has its
own function which range from a photo printer to game
controller to a mini digital projector. Looks bananas but
don't hold your breath on the release date.

I went to see "Let's Get Lost" last week (it was great) and
before it was a trailer for "In Search Of A Midnight Kiss".
It didn't make the film look too hot so I was a bit sceptical
when Martini wanted to go see it, but it was actually pretty
good and I can see why it's getting so much press.
It's worth it for the closer, but they could have used the
original (I'm sure it's a cover).
I remember about 11 years ago my friend Keith's dad
constructed a fiberglass skateboard (he owned a fiberglass
company). It was kind of constructed like a snowboard and
although it was quite flexi I was surprised a similar thing
wasn't out there already.
It seems Element have now gone a stage further with
the new Push series.
I was over in Berlin and went to see the excellent show
"Our Mountain". The work was superb and if you get the
chance check it out. I've mentioned Steven Harrington
before but yet to mention Justin Krietemeyer who is
equally as good.
If you want to check my weekend peek here.
