Here's cheeky preview of a ukulele I've custom painted and re strung for inclusion in a group art show at Stolenspace gallery (Dray Walk, The Old Truman Brewery off London's Brick Lane 04.12.08 - 21.12.08).

For all those who live in or who are visiting the City of London please check out an 8ft by 4ft painting I've done behind the counter of the fine clothing boutique The Three Threads. It'll be up for the next few weeks and then will possibly be auctioned off. Excuse the weird angle of the photo (and empty beers!) as the counter makes it tricky to get it all in shot, you'll see what I mean if you visit there! The store address is The Three Threads, 47-49 Charlotte Road, London EC2A 3QT.

I've just attended Tom Bugs' oscillator workshop today at 93 Feet East in London as part of the Hokaben music festival. The goal of the workshop was to assemble an mini oscillator kit designed by Tom with kit and tools supplied. I've never attempted any electronics construction past wiring a plug, so I must admit to being a little bit nervous even though I was told no previous experience was necessary to build it. After a quick look through the initially bewildering instructions, we were reassured that few people have ever failed in getting theirs to work. Still buzzing from my coffee, my soldering began a little shakily but I soon got the hang of it and was progressing at a pleasing rate. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I got it working (after realising one of the circuit boards was upside down, oops). It's a crazy little synth that's very intuitive and surprising (there's mp3's of sound samples on his website). The kits will be for sale at some point in the future, check the Bugbrand site in my links section. I can't recommend these enough if you like building and esoteric sounds. Thanks for a great afternoon Tom!

Here's sneak peek at a new screenprint that'll be available from www.playbeast.com from the end on november. Without a title at the moment, the plan is to print it onto B2 size 270gsm paper and it'll be limited to 200 pieces signed and numbered.
