MUSICAL ∆CTS @ the INFORM∆TION REVEL∆TION

Posted on July 15, 2011

:::CONFIRMED MUSICAL ACTS:::

Guaranteed good vibes throughout the night.

OPENING NIGHT: 21st JULY 6-9PM

INFORM∆TION REVEL∆TION @ LEE STREET STUDIOS, 5 Lee street, London, E8 4DY

I am so excited that the sublimely beautiful (Benjamin Taylor) LOUD LIKE A LION has agreed to be part of the INFORM∆TION REVEL∆TION, I really cant believe my luck that this guy is onboard. I have only seen Ben perform on one occasion but I was so enamoured with what I heard (+ his love of monkeyesque hats and colourful pants) that I just had to get him involved. He has a musical sensitivity akin to Daniel Johnston/Brian Wilson which will tear at your heart strings.

LOUD LIKE A LION

LOUD LIKE A LION

<<<CHANGE TO THE LINEUP>>>

It is with much disappointment that I must now announce that David Moore will not be performing at the event due to unforeseen circumstances, he needs to be with his family right now.

This has meant that I have called upon the uber talented psychedelic minstrel that is CHRIS PARRIS (of Sarah Tonin) to come and weave some musical magic.
Hopefully Chris will come out with a few of his James Brown moves if you ask him nicely!

Alan Aldridge/Paul Smith sneaker trade off!

Posted on December 1, 2010

I just had to post these great Alan Aldridge shoes!

Alan Aldridge / Paul Smith

Alan Aldridge / Paul Smith Weekend Sneakers

I am made up with the trade off for the revamped ‘Cederblue’ painting posted a few months ago. It was a great trade for a limited edition Alan Aldridge/Paul Smith sneaker that I can assure will not be worn till the finer weather.  The painting (started in 1997) has subsequently been lovingly hung (by my good self) in the fantastic Mr Charlie Waddington’s custom built studio, complete with the chair that features in the painting, the studio looks the Bees Knees!

Cheers Fella!

Clarks V’s Hobo ‘Grow a Brain’ version

Posted on November 13, 2010

Clarks Vs Hobo Desert Trek

Clarks teamed up with the Japanese Brand Hobo on the Classic Desert Trek to produce an awesome hybrid (Jimi Hendrix / native American style shoe) but at £200 a pop I thought, Ill have a go at that myself. Leather punch in hand and a few hours later (seven) I was pretty pleased with the results.

If anyone needs a raindance, I’m your man.

Total Cost: Shoes 10yrs old so good value, £35 at the time, Leather – Found (at work)

Urdhva Padmasana – Brain Growth Technique

Posted on July 10, 2009

Urdhva Padmasana

Urdhva Padmasana

I recently did a series of illustrations for ‘Urdhva Padmasana’ This is an advanced Yoga asana which can be practiced for short periods of time by anyone with the inclination.

The asana is designed to channel energies towards the brain and convert base energies (ie; sexual) further up the Chakra directly feeding the brain.

The concept is to stop trying so hard to manipulate everything materially and to conserve energies for consciousness.

One who practices this asana achieves the perfect control of the body:

No 1* Fan

Posted on June 9, 2009

I thought this was pure gold, a friend of mine in Germany photographed this 4D cube in his small home town of Gottingen, It was signed off as Russ ‘O5 – obviously after one of my paintings

What a thrill! I have a real fan… The best thing is that the cube is a bit confused – whoever you are, Thankyou
