Last Sunday saw Hackney Wicks first proper flea market at Oslo house. I was there selling jewellery, drawings and some vinyl/c.d’s. We had glorious sunshine, beautiful food, sangria, vintage clothing, psychic portraiture, plants and lots more. An all round fab day!

Brighton is currently hosting its annual festival so I headed down to take a peek at what it has to offer. I’m really pleased I managed to catch the current ‘Cinemascope’ exhibition at ‘Box Bird’ Gallery/studio. It boasted a really strong collection of screen prints from artists such as Jon Burgerman, Graham Rawle, Mister Phil, Ben Newman, Peepshow, Modern Toss and heaps more! The exhibition was themed around film, I think my favourite had to be the ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ one!

The show will be on until the end of May, more info here!

This is part of my hand carved rubber stamp collection… I made these little shelves for them, they’re not ideal but I thought I’d post as it gives you a better ides as to how I make my illustrations.
