S2 JamFactory Droplet launch/Customs show

12 01 2010

Hello! Just wanted to share the flyer design just through from Gavin @ JamFactory for the Droplet S2 launch in Bristol on the 6th of Feb. Great lineup for this show, I’m gutted I won’t be able to make it down, but for those of you that will, or need some convincing, here is the flyer with full list of artists, and a sneaky peek of my custom Droplet for the show.  You can click to enlarge if the text is too small, or check out the event page here http://www.jam-factory.com/droplet Hope you can make it! 🙂 For those of you that can’t, pics of my custom, and the rest i’m sure will be appearing on Flickr over the coming weeks!

If you’re in the UK, or anywhere else chilly at the moment, keep warm!!


Ghosts of shiny magic & selfish tea love.

13 05 2009

Damn the postmen and their new rules! Okay I may be a little selfish in my cursing, I believe the new early parcel delivery rule is to prevent so many packages being undelivered due to people being out at work during the day, however I was woken at 7:25 this morning (and I believe my clock is a touch fast) by these little beauties (see below) I picked up a set of yellow, and a set of orange (thanks to Urban Retro for the sweet deal) I’m usually a little disappointed with figures in person, I’m dead picky about paint jobs, etc, but these are one of very few items I like better in person, they surprised me. Not only is the quality perfect, but they’re much bigger than I expected and the metal tins are a nice touch! I now have 10 of these to find a use for! If anyone has any tin suggestions, be sure to send them my way in the comments, I don’t mind how silly they are 🙂

I know a few of you will know me a little through Twitter, some of you in person, some through MSN, or maybe you’re a curious stranger who found this blog while searching for animal pornography (I have added this to the tags to ensure this does actually occur at some point, if it does, please feel free to express your disappointment via the comments box) So anyhow, some of you will know my deepest darkest secrets, such as my love of the B52’s, Trifle, Gilmore Girls, and Star Wars. However, none of you know this, I killed a man today. When I say killed, I mean I disappointed him very much. I took the last box of reduced tea bags in the supermarket. The look of disbelief on his face as I walked away with them was staggering, should I have offered half the box as a gesture of goodwill (or is that a Christmas thing?) Maybe just offered him a teabag as some kind of consolation prize? Well, I did none of these, I bought them, and I think I’ll enjoy the tea more, knowing that it very nearly wasn’t mine. I won. The tea is mine. MINE.



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
