Tegen (http://youngpaint.blogspot.co.uk/) is putting a show on with a few of her pals in August and I've got a piece in it. Should be sick. If you're in the south ken area pop on down ...

In the week the brilliant Miss Chloe Pemberton had a little launch party for a film she made with poet Greta Bellamacina (http://www.gretabellamacina.com/). The film was for twenty8twelve and screened at their covent garden shop. She also makes lots of other sick films and is generally an all round cool lady in demand! 

On Thursday a bunch of us from London headed down to Charleston in East Sussex for a super exciting day out. Charleston (if you don't know about it, look it up) and the Omega Workshops are one of my favourite things and place to visit, just totally mindblowingly inspiring. Makes you want to paint everything and anything and move to the country.  ANYWAY ... the reason we were there was because my dad has been working on some stuff for the brilliant people at Charleston and has a show there which runs till October, full of ceramics and a coupla papercutz, all done in the Charleston spirit

wahhh, super cute staffordshire cats and dogs. The best one said "I miss being a kitten" !!! :'-(

some more gorgeouss ceramics, in some sick cabinets made by Mr Graham Smith.

Even the new issue of SPQR was dedicated to the Charleston exhibition and it was a banger of a newspaper issue.

The lovely people in Charleston even gave us a lovely arabian tent to hang out in, when we were all arted out (also visiting Monk House) with sweeties and cocktails ... yum!

The day was all in all soo lovely, with bingo and pass the parcel and goodie bags on the coach down. I think everyone went to bed very happy. Thanks to alll the ryantown gang


some sketchbook ideas

At the end of term all the first years have a to help a third year. And Aaron kindly asked me to help him out. Here is his wicked ceefax (rip) tapestry. Check out his work, it's sick.

productive evening with maz. fed up of being ill.
Waahh! I met another Barbara yesterday (and we were matching!). She's from Sao Paulo and works for a super cool agency who have just done some rad projects with Its Nice That and Anthony Burill. The results of there collaborations are at Kemistry Gallery (till 28th July), can't wait to check it out.

Some great advertising for a garage sale I saw yesterday. A bit David Shrigley?

At the end of May it is such a nightmare cos it's only the blinking Chelsea Flower Show. Makes going to the tube station such a massssivee hassle. But the one really cool thing about it, is that on the last day of it you get to see everyone walking down the road with lots and lots of plants, it makes the streets so much more colourful!

A couple of weeks ago it was the Kingston degree show. And this is my favourite work from all the courses in the school. These ceramics from the illustration department totally won my heart by Louise Madzia. Really want to buy a massive bowl, they are just beautiful. Check it out ....


Last week I went to the new Grayson Perry show @ Victoria Miro with Alice and Francis. It was bloody brilliant. It was sweltering hot that day but man it was worth going up like a million stairs to see his new work. There were six (I think) tapestries, three pots and two drawings. All of which were super, mind blowing even! Man, can't phrase it properly but he is like the one. Man, I got the same feeling infront of the tapestries as infront of a Picasso. He makes me think everything I make is ugly and self indulgent, his work is so beautiful and actually says something.

Please go and see it if you're in the east end, it's free too.


Went to the Royal Academy summer exhibition. Seriously digging their new selling system, going wild with the stickers innit!
