New years resolutions

This year instead of compiling a list of specifics that usually begin with 'I will..'
I thought I would encourage myself in the right direction with a list of 'less' and 'more' new years resolutions.

How to make 15 guitars for your childrens school play

First of all grab some thick card suitable for the job, draw your guitar shaped outline on them, and then with a bloody big knife cut them out thus:

Then you'll be needing lots of paint, so you best be getting under the stairs to find that old tin you once painted the hallway with.
Mix it with some more paint like you know what your doing, and not at all like your making this up as you go along:

Then several (what seems like thousands) of hours later you will have a collection of cardboard guitars:

At this point you may question what on earth your childrens school would want with fifteen guitars for a christmas nativity play.
I'm fairly sure that in the nativity at my school the three wise men weren't a travelling band, and even if they were, who's gonna use the other twelve? Maybe its set in rural Ireland this year, and their holding out for a folk jam session when they eventually get to the stables.

I was further confused when they asked me to produce 16 horses heads.
Not fifteen, but sixteen.

This could only mean that not only must this be some kind of spaghetti western, but one of the cowboys is allergic to playing guitar.
So here's my collection of horses heads:

I can't wait to see this play. It sounds mental.

Aha, I see...
Make art not war? art or die? no, that all sounds a bit lame.
'Take aim' I think...

Halloween as we know it today derives from the ancient celtic festival once called Samhain. It would have originally been one of four major celtic festivals, with Samhain being a feast and fire festival marking the season change into winter, and the begining of the celtic year.
It was believed that the at this time of year the division between our world and that of the 'otherworld' was at its most tenuous, which is the suggested link with ghouls and witches that still remains with halloween today.
This is my fire...

And we went for it this year with doorstep pumpkins too...

Happy halloween/samhain!

Plus one magazine

If you haven't had the pleasure of flicking through the very excellent +1 magazine, their latest issue will be your only and last chance. After 14 issues of the skate/art/music mag the plug has been pulled, which comes as a cruel blow to anybody (including myself) who saw it as the golden child from 'Document magazine's closure.
If it was in fact the same people behind the shutting down of both magazines, they should be ashamed of themselves, and go and stand in the corner facing the wall.
+1 was a shining light of new art combined with great Sam Ashley photography, as well as introducing the world to new books and obscure bands.
I am waiting my issue to arrive any day now from those lovely people at
get hold of a copy before they are history.

Bens project

This is young Ben Jackson who, for a school project chose to duplicate a piece of my art. (Bens sketchbook on the right)
Not only does Ben (like all teenage boys) have hormones coming out of his ears and feet growing a shoe size every week, he also cleeearly recognises good art when he sees it. (ahem)
