Oct 28th

Well its funny how things happen !!!  I have been trying to take daily photos of this panel. But finding this quite difficult it is however interesting when changes happen. Like this morning I noticed rust spots on the metal sheet (Mirror) 
 I have been adding other photos. of things that interest me and play apart in my own ever changing world...

October 19th

 Well realised that the blue tint is not because the camera is broken but because I changed the setting on the 17th...

'Its cold out side' a selection of flowers making on last attempt at attracting the pollen spreaders!!
 Not to mention how beautiful they are especially dotted around a rather forlorn garden!!

Post Sluice

 Had a great time and meet some interesting people. But its on wards and up wards. My (our) next event is with the Fabelists Its on the 29th October @ Rivington Place. Each artist is going to create a Art work that is then going to be bound together... Its very exciting a very different to my usual practice.
 I have been taking photos of this work decaying in our garden, but, the camera is playing up and I forgot to up load these images.
 I moved the panel away from the garage door and now its at the bottom of the garden in full view of our neighbour's. we also have the pleasure of this from our dinning room!!!
 The face of the cat is much more obvious and now needs more detail. I have been doing this as well as reconfiguring the body, which I'm really pleased with.
 I have reduced the boob's and added a smaller figure climbing out of its Bottom.
 I still need to add more balck around the eye's but its quite tricky!!
 The Mouth was actually falling off and I have fixed it. I also feel that the tongue looks more like it is coming out of the mouth. I was thinking about doing a mouth with teeth. But have decided that this one does not really need the mouth. Still might change my mind ???
 Dan from my local shop gave me a poster of Charles Dickens heros and villans. I'm thinking that I would like to make some sculptures of them.
This is todays picture and the camera really is not happy but I quite like this blue tint It reminds me of Derek Jarmans blue series.

Finished Billy Bong

 'they do not know what is meant by yesterday or today; they leap about, eat, rest, digest, leap about again, and so, from morn till night and from day to day, fettered to the moment and its pleasure or displeasure (they are) neither melancholy nor bored... A human being may well ask an animal: "why do you not speak to me of your happiness but only stand and gaze at me?' The animal would like to answer, and say: ' The reason is I always forget what I was going to say' - but then he forgot this answer too, and stayed silent: so that the human being was left wondering... 'the eight technologies of otherness' by Sue Golding
 I finally finished Billy Bong (Hung Like a horse) Its hanging in its space @ Sluice artFair I'm Happy!! and all is good in the world....
 This Work is a collaboration with Jonathan Hillson Its been shown at various place's studio1.1, Half Baked, Supernormal and Hackney Wicked, not to mention the cycling around London with it on my bike trailer.
 However it takes up a lot of space and I dont have a lot of space!!! So I have decided to turn it into a wanking cat. I have made a decision that the slim figures of previous work, has to be the way forward as space is an issue but more importantly the slim pieces feel more together. and less fussy if that is possible with my work
 I want to keep elements of this cat but just want to slimline them a bit. I have also talked to Jon about creating one of his video pieces using the cat as its a collaborative piece.
 So watch this space...

Hung Like A Horse

 This latest work is going to be shown at Sluice Art Fair This weekend @South Molton Lane.
 This work was inspired by the show 'Rear View Mirror' about the Cable Street riots and how the local community came together to STOP a fascist march. This show not only celebrates 75 years since the march but the story about the Mural its self...
 I made this work which as a response to the show and the sketches that were in the Gallery studio1.1

4th October

 Well its been a few days since, I took a photo. Its been beautiful weather, Especially for October, But a change in the air. I had a difficult day on Friday and quite upset as someone behaved quite bad. I then went to Euston and waited for a train to go to Rugby and spend time at Nan's and to go to the Rugby Library with Fran from the Fabelists. Woke up Sat, was sick and had a migraine spent the rest of the day sleeping and throwing up, Nan was quite shocked and thought their might be something else wrong. Felt better on Sunday and we went to the boat man for Lunch, where Mum and Dave joined us.
Dave and I came home Sunday Evening.
 Mon Jon's Birthday and he's been in a good mood. I went to work and we sorted some things out and all is well. I need to get a balance between work and Art. Fran asked for a pic of the work that appears on the fabelist site.So I sent the one below but need to post on their blog. I also need to get this work ready for the 15th October so have been working on it tonight.
