Thank you, Boo…

A massive thank you goes out to Boo in Derby, who have kindly stocked their shop with a few of our T-shirts and girls vests. Much obliged to you for that! Boo specialises in Fairtrade and sustainable goods, and the shop on Saddlergate is full to the brim with a fantastically diverse mix of unique, well made, and ethically minded goods. In fact, just follow the link to the website below and have a look for yourself. Or better still, just go down to the shop and have a look around and a chat! What with most of the shops on the once lovely Saddler Gate shopping street having met their demise over the last few years, it’s great to see that a few nice boutiques are keeping their heads above water. The skateshop dissapeared at some point while I was away in Japan, along with the miniramp in the beer garden of The Blue Dog (how amazing was that little set up?) , and pretty much all of the little shops I used to spend my hard earned money in.

Keep up the good work Holly! And as for you lot, i strongly suggest you get down there and do your last minute Christmas shopping.

POP IDOLS…

Still a few shirts left…

Just in case you were wondering, we still have a few shirts left for sale, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you want one. Our lack of a website with shopping carts and the like means you’ll have to drop me a line at

bxoxtxc@gmail.com

for prices, size charts and all that stuff.

cheers!

Illustrati, Nottingham, December 5th…

First of all, a big thank you for letting me draw! Much obliged to you for that. I can’t wait for the next one.

Illustrati, in case you missed it, was a free event featuring live illustration and graffiti, good music, booze and food held at the Refectory Gallery on Hooton Street in Nottingham. I think i speak for everyone who went when I say a brilliant time was had by all.

Mysterious hand gash…

I’d like to start this post by apologizing to anyone i attempted to “converse” with last night at the Old Bell. I was in full cider fueled buffoon mode and having a thoroughly wonderful time, but i have the sneaking suspicion that anyone speaking to me was treated to a unique blend of scrumpy breath and garbled nonsense. Oh well, at least i managed to hand out a few fliers. Cheers to Andy for helping with that! Anyway, here’s a picture of Jamie wearing one of our shirts. Marvelous.

Poundaflesh and the U.K. subs played a blinder, of course, and i woke up with a mysterious inch long gash on my left palm and a strange sense of guilt.

Blazepipe concrete…

The skateboard warriors at blazepipe in yokohama have just completed the latest addition to their under ground lair. Have a look:

Blazepipe concrete.

If you live in japan and want to skate here, it’s a little shop near Koganecho station on the keikyu line. It’s open from 12-12 and is home to my favorite miniramp on earth. get yourselves down there!

Drawing pictures keeps you warm…

Live illustration at the New Refectory gallery in Nottingham, Dec 5th…

My good friend Adam Gray, who’s name seems impossible to spell correctly when making flyers, will be drawing at the New refectory this Saturday. Not just him, either, there will be a lot of outstanding artists coming down too. Look:

Told you.

Live Art, D.J.s, food and drink. What better way to kick off the festive season?
