I have been helping to run a co operative gallery shop project since December. The shop has just relaunched for the spring/summer and we shall be holding numerous events and shows in the next few months.
I also have some new work showing there and am offering spray paint tutorials over the Easter holidays.

Yes, yes. It’s back. The Grafik Advent hosted by me, Sinna One.
It’s flipping freezing out there at the moment, but has that stopped me?
My paint stained fingers have taking such a cold bashing in the last five days and they shall continue to do so until the advent is up. So here are the first few and expect to see more. Every day. Watch this space….
Once again, I am posting about the Badger Cull debate. The petition is still out there and needs to be signed. An amazing response so far with 156,000 signatures, however anyone that believes this is wrong and hasn’t signed needs to do so. Sign here
The good news is that this is now due for debate in Parliament, but it aint over yet.
In other Stop the Cull news there is a Love the Badger flash mob dance this weekend in Parliament Square from 2pm and Trafalgar Square from 3.30pm on Sunday the 21st October. Organised by the great folks at Artful Badger. More info here – ShnufleShnuffle.
And finally…My image of the Badgerfaced Blues that i painted on a shutter in Brighton as my response to the proposed cull was reposted on the RSPCA official facebook page and got nearly 900 likes. Very proud of that.

I’m getting all festive and we kick off the Grafik Advent project on green boxes around the city of Brighton. Keep your eyes peeled for more but to get you started there are already 3 boxes completed by myself , Sinna One and one by mr SNUB23.
Here are a couple of pics. For more info check out my Flickr and my Facebook page.
This is how bad at blogging I am as I wrote this months ago and forgot to post. I suppose it’s relevant now though as for one it’s turned ruddy freezing! So I’m having an ikkle remenisce of the scorching, fuzzy fun times and long hazy days. Also Playgroup are selling off some cheap tickets for next years festival and they are very limited, so get in there – Playgroup Christmas Offer. Definitely a highlight of my summer. See ya there.
Last month I was invited to come and do the decor for Playgroup Festival. This beautiful little festival by the Brighton Club promoters of the same name is now in it’s second year and what an amazing 2nd year it was. I arrived on the Wednesday to paint lots of signage, including the main entrance welcome sign. Armed with Festival logo stencils and my trusty suitcase of paint I preceded to paint all manner of animal themed bits and bobs. And, yes, of course, plenty of Badgers!! Unfortunately, I only managed to get a couple of shots over the weekend as my camera ran out battery and I was having such a good time.
The festival had a great vibe, really friendly and a good size too, making it less of a mission to get around. Acts, such as DJ Format, Quantic and his Combo Barbaro, The Correspondents, Reso, High Rankin and many other audio delights rocked the crowds all weekend.
Proper Good. Cant wait until next year.
