Doing a Larry

I nearly had an episode like this today. I bought myself a new stanley knife for work on the shedio but couldn't open the bloody packaging. I needed a sharp blade to cut it free! Oh, the irony of it all

Gimme Shelter

Every Shedio build is managed by our professional site foreman. They get younger every year!
Isaac looking like a stereotypical builder & adjusting his jeans at any given opportunity

The roof is on & now needs to be made water tight which I will do later this week. I have since put ply on the left wall too. Things are taking shape very quickly

Shedio Number Two

Well, it's been awhile since the last update & it's mainly due to the fact we have a new addition to the clan in the form of Ella. She arrived in April & it's been mad hectic (what with having Isaac too) since. Ella & Isaac watching boats on the Norfolk Broads.

So, the reason for this new post is I have embarked on another Shedio build & wanted to share some pics of progress so far...My Father-out-law - Richard - is helping me this time. Here we are putting the second door inObviously a cut hand is mandatory when doing this sort of thing!Next, cut your rafters & nail those suckers onThen, ponder progress & feel pretty pleased with yourselfThe story so far.....more to follow soon

Los(t) Logos

Here's a couple of logos I did for the boys from Burn The Witch. Unfortunately they never saw the light of day as BTW disbanded (some members forming Gulls - check me links) before I had chance to use them

Skate & Create

It's been a while since the last post & to be honest I've not produced much art I'm happy to share with you. However, I have to share the awesome work of artist HAROSHI with you. This take on Jim Phillips' screaming hand was part of Haroshi's outstanding exhibition earlier this year in Japan. By utilising the coloured plies of old, broken skateboards he makes sculptural pieces which reflect an aesthetic we all closely associate with skateboarding. Clickety click HERE for more photos from the incredible exhibition
