Giant Drag, the farewell tour

Just did a little poster design for Giant Drag on their farewell tour; here's a nice picture I took of the bodacious Annie Hardy displaying it: (thanks Annie!)

2 colour (also available in orange/blue), limited edition of 100. Available to buy from my online store, woohoo!

I first heard Giant Drag at college when I was 19 after my friend Kieran introduced me to 'Hearts and Unicorns'. I played the album in my car endlessly for about 2 months during the end of a doomed relationship, until I inevitably lost the cd to the black hole that exists under the passenger seat where it was never seen again. 
If you want to keep up with the awesome shit Annie is getting up to post-Giant Drag, you should visit where she will be posting stuff to do with her new musical adventures in Annie Hardy and the Psychos.

Upfest 2013

WHAT A WEEKEND! Massive thanks to the guys at Upfest for letting me take over one of their boards - my Upfest/street art virginity is officially broken! It's been an epic, paint-fuelled, sun-soaked 2 days, and it's amazing to be part of such a huge number of talented artists who come from all over to take part in the festival and turn Bristol's streets into a living, breathing outdoor gallery. I had a lot of fun experimenting and trying out new stuff like spray cans and markers, which was pretty exciting. I must admit though, it was slightly nerve-racking laying down a great big picture of my face! What was I thinking?! Thanks to all those who came with their support and a beer!

The Destroyers

I finished designing and printing my first ever screen printed gig poster at Jacknife Studios last week for the brilliant Destroyers show at the Fleece on Saturday! Feeling really chuffed with how it turned out and the appreciation it received from the band and fans makes the whole process so rewarding. Screen printing is fast becoming a real addiction for me, and I can't wait to get cracking on the next design!
If you'd like to buy a poster, purchases can now be made by clicking on the link to my shop. Each Destroyers poster comes signed and numbered out of a limited edition run of 100, fits nicely in an A2 frame and is hand printed using the finest water-based inks in the land. x

Also - make sure to check out the circus swing rampage that is The Carny Villains. The Invisible Circus band are let loose out of Carny Town... coming soon to a stage near you!

Wet autumn days

Walk through woodland wild
Rain falls to greet leaf and skin
Here, my temple home.

goodbye summer sun // new costume pieces!

amazing photos courtesy of

So, I've been up to a few things this summer...

As some may already know, when I'm not making things, drawing or writing, among other occupations I'm also a professional stilt walker. Which is why summer often finds me in a field, being a lot taller than usual and dressed as something ridiculous whilst surrounded by thousands of people.

First up on our festival circuit this year was Sunrise, which turned out to be the mud apocalypse so sadly no stilting there, but as my first muddy festival it was certainly... an experience. And I don't mean a bad one! Though bringing a pair of wellies might have helped me out a bit, rather than enduring the, erm, lovely damp feeling of trench foot in a pair of second hand walking boots I immediately spent a fiver on as soon as I slid my way on site. But trifles such as appropriate footwear and keeping vertical were no problem for these two legendary loons who showed everyone how it's supposed to be done:

Next, I was very excited to be at Secret Garden Party for the first time, which fully lived up to the hype. I was blown away by the sheer enormity of the creativity and effort that goes into making the site installations and the whole experience so special. Friday and Saturday were still no shows for us peg stilters, due to the lingering mud, but come Sunday the prevailing sunshine had given the ground a slightly firmer, yet rubber-like density, so it was off to join the New Orleans-stylee voodoo parade and finally have a stilt boogie.

Nozstock was a fun little adventure into the heart of Herefordshire with the Pariah Circus crew....a sweet, chilled out kind of festival, with a more family-orientated vibe...

....and after much anticipation, BOOMTOWN FAIR happened - the craziest, biggest, most upside-down inside-out festival I've experienced yet. My last time there was two years ago; unfortunately culminating in driving myself to hospital afterwards with chronic asthmatic problems (a long time coming really - don't smoke, kids! Assmar sucks!). Hence, I was really looking forward to being able to enjoy it this year. Finally, we were blessed with four days of beautiful sunshine too! And the cherry on top would probably have to be witnessing the fiery awesomeness of the three-legged arachnid Arcadia stage in action. The Arcadia crew put on the most incredible shows - if you get the chance to see one, don't miss it.

I was also excited to proudly unveil the new crow-inspired feather mohawk I made especially for the summer performances. 
I love wearing this piece, it's big, showy and totally rockin!
More crow inspired-costume pieces to come.

by the way - I kicked ass at Stilt Pong, hosted by Kings of Ping. I think it's my new favourite game! Also, check out the bearded dude posing effortlessly in the background with a can of red stripe:

My review of the recent graffiti/music spectacular that is SEE NO EVIL 2012 in Bristol is now available to read online at the Fear of Fiction website, feat. My Bad Sister, Arsequake, Prince Fatty and Buggsy.
What an amazing event; showcasing such a wide range of homegrown talent and cramming it all into one massive street party! It's a great example of one of the many creative happenings and forward community thinking in Bristol that make me very proud to be a south west girl. Yes indeed.
