Subism Jail party…

Click the link for some pictures from the recent subism jail party. Go on. It looks like the night was pretty unique, and by all accounts it went off! Another one i missed due to my retreat to Scotland! I’ll definately be at the next one though.

“Built in 1756, Derby’s reputedly haunted ‘Gaol’ housed some of the area’s most notorious villains and features prisoners’ original ‘graffiti’…names, dates and day markers etched into the cell doors, marking down how many days the prisoner had until execution.
The night will featured Subism’s artist collective and Subism Live resident DJ’s and special guests. People came and watched, danced or just drank and chill out in the Gaol’s cells. The Gaol doors were closed at 10.30pm for a lock-in until 2am. Get out of jail free cards where available on the night.
To avoid overcrowding, there was a limited number of 50 inmates that were granted access to the Gaol. This was a truly special unique Subism Live party!”


And while you’re at it, Sub Ink make some seriously good products for all you arty types out there. All made in the U.K. too, keeping you patriots happy!

Skullduggery Gallery and Cherrybomb… a look around

To make up for my pear cider induced lack of decent photographs from the opening night, here’s a proper look around the gallery and shop space:

Skullduggery/Cherrybomb grand opening…

As many of you may know, the Skullduggery gallery/Cherrybomb opening night took place on the 30th of January and was a roaring success. The turnout was very impressive, with a shed load of people turning up to show their support for this brilliant home grown project.  If you didn’t get a chance to make it down to Saddlergate for the opening festivities, i strongly suggest you drop what you are doing and take a few minutes out of your hectic schedule to go and have a look around. Thanks to everyone who made this event happen, all the artists who exhibited their work, and all the people who showed up to support the event. it’s exactly what we need to see more of. Good work people!

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.

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?

Poundaflesh and U.K. subs at the Old Bell in Derby, Dec 3rd…

Poundalesh and the U.K. subs are playing tomorrow night at the old bell in Derby. It’s short notice i know, but if you can make it down you probably should. It’s an ideal opportunity to get pushed over by men with mohawks.

And if you can’t make it tomorrow, perhaps you should consider a trip to sheffield this weekend. The line up is pretty damn good, to say the least.
