The Mill

The GREATEST Little Art Show in E17. I agreed to take part in this fundraiser for The Mill E17. The brief: a blank postcard to create a miniature master piece. After considering the idea of a masterpiece, I recalled my favourites and researched others that perhaps aren't but which might make a good starting point. One painting which falls into the former category is The Snail by Henri Matisse, which I remember seeing at Tate Britain when I was very young. It left a big impression on me. I thought it might be nice to play around with scale and reverse the the idea of a very small creature being represented so large by representing a large animal on a small space i.e. the postcard.

sleeve purchased

I queued up at Somerset House to buy a Secret 7" sleeve. Out of the four I wanted, only this one was left which was actually my favourite. So even more happy to discover that this sleeve was the work of the excellent Nick White - result!


It's the final day of the Secret 7" show when the sleeve designs are made available for sale at £50 each. All the money raised goes to charity, this year the charity is Nordoff Robbins, who are dedicated to transforming livees of vulnerable children and adults through music therapy. It also means that I can reveal my winning entry for Digital Witness by St. Vincent

round up

Amazing opening night with blood sample shots and live culture alcoholic petri-dish jellies accompanied by the creative scientific soundz of DJ Andi. The show was packed all night and the work was really well received. The Heroes do it again!
