An Intense Fear Of Hoovering.

16 02 2010

Hello! It’s Tuesday, and time is flying this week, had a trip into Sheffield today and picked up card for the new Dunny header tags along with a few new brushes and canvas. So, they’re all packaged up now! Ken the tiger is heading to his new home in the states, and Mister Nozzle (created from the intense fear of hoovering mentioned above) is available now on my store page. He comes with a sticker!!! (the green one) and you can pick him up here: Bigcartel

Just had a fairly decent hot chocolate, after picking up some nice reduced fair trade stuff from Somerfields of all places! Hoping it’ll power me to stay up late and get some painting done tonight, more canvas paintings on the way soon enough.. 🙂





Hey Mister!

21 09 2009

Hello!! Today I created a mocha, using instant coffee, and instant hot chocolate. Well, I say it was a mocha, it actually tasted like a combination of the burps you get after eating too many chocolate muffins (or chocolate cake, either is good) and instant coffee, which is already pretty nasty.  ANYHOW, if you want to experience the taste-bud suffering that it caused, please feel free, and post your thoughts here. But just don’t blame me for suggesting it! Costa do a good Mocha, and if you get a large one, you get it in a mug so big, it’s impossible to lift with one hand. It’s like combining a bar of chocolate and a coffee, and costs about the same as a coffee, you can’t lose!

After I got over the taste of the FakeMocha, or Focha as it may now be called, I got on with this little fella (see below) , who will be up on the store page at midnight tonight – http://squink.bigcartel.com/. Went for something a little more simple, production like, so I could concentrate on the clean lines and try out some text. I hope you like it! The canvas paintings I’ve been working on are also now up on the customs/artwork section, so check those out if you fancy it! There’s also a Munny and the last of the cheesecake tees up on the store page, making room for the new t-shirts which will be out in the next few weeks!

Until then. Peace. Out!

Salted Nut Selection.

5 07 2009

Today, I found myself picking through a bag of Sainsburys ‘Salted nut selection’ They all taste like salt, however, my head began to rate the various nuts, it went something like this; Jumbo peanuts – Boring, just peanuts. Cashews – Amazing, soft textured, creamy and amazing (Next time I’ll just buy a bag of cashews as I found myself picking these out only to be left with a bag of inferior nuts) Almonds – Bland. Bitter. Hard. Rubbish. Hazelnuts – I don’t know, these were just round and tasted like salt. I’d imagine they are actually something like the cheap cardboard variety of peanuts. So, lesson learned, next time, buy cashews.

Yesterday I went out on my bike, after half an hour, and after getting off. I could hardly walk. Another lesson learned, pedal too hard, be prepared to crawl home like a crippled tortoise.

Anyway, today I got some more painting done, Sundays are a little dull, repeats on TV, stereo speakers that refuse to make a sound unless you pump either Cliff Richard, or Bros through them. I swear if you don’t go to church suddenly your day is doomed to fail. I’m sat waiting right now for todays custom to catch fire mysteriously, fingers crossed that doesn’t happen… You can catch a preview of it over on my Flickr now, along with the 8″ Dunny I’ve been working on.

Now I’m off to buy some water, in case of fire.





Couple of new customs & deck preview!

30 06 2009

Hey! Sorry it’s been a while since my last blog post, still working on a selection of commissions and other bits and pieces, but all are coming together nicely and I’ve attached pictures of a couple of the new ones, along with a preview shot of the skate deck (coming soon) I’ve been working on for the upcoming show at Iksentrik on the 3rd of July (See Shows section)

I had to venture into Games Workshop today in the sweltering heat it was so hot the bus actually overheated and broke down on the way into Sheffield! Odd considering we didn’t really have any sun today, the sky was full of clouds that served as a kind of fuzzy sky based radiator. . Tomorrow… Must buy a fan.

Seishin 2 & Killer Figs

4 05 2009

Just finished off the second wave of Seishin custom Dunnys (see pic) Hope you like them, again, really enjoyed doing these! Finding out from @jamesyeah that Games Workshop have stopped making Tentacle Pink was pretty devastating though, my favourite colour of theirs, looks like I’ll be mixing my own in future! I’m on a quest to find new bands at the moment, I hate feeling there are amazing bands out there I haven’t heard yet! If any of you lot have any suggestions for bands/singers you think i’d like send links/names my way via the comments 🙂 I’m blaupraust on Last.fm if you don’t know what kind of music I like. Currently listening to Blue Foundation, who remind me a little of Mew, not bad at all! (Thought I hear one of their songs is on the Twilight soundtrack)

Short blog tonight as I’m not feeling too great (must be something I ate) So for now, here are the new Dunnys they go up tonight at 7pm BST at http://squink.bigcartel.com  SOLD OUT
