Surprise from Goldmark

Thanks again to Callum, who printed these without my knowing until almost a year later! It was a lovely surprise.

the cat

While I was as Goldmark Atelier last year, I got to try my had at etching- which is old news if you’ve followed me for more than two seconds. I made a simple etching; sweating a bit at having to think of an image and bully it out of the black fast and efficiently enough so that I didn’t clench with shame and crack invisible nuts with my ass cheeks every time I saw it get printed.

I don’t know if I’d be as comfortable with the image if it didn’t symbolise pure relief on my part. I was though, so much so that when Jan put a very small plate in front of me and dared me to drypoint etch, I said “yeah, okay”.

I was warned that the headache inducing smallness of my regular detail would get lost as any stroke would more than likely feather out into thick, stark line. Not knowing what a middle ground is, I quickly executed a crudely drawn cat face and waited for its features to bleed, clown like, in the printing process.

Leaving, my thoughts were on my first ‘proper’ etching and so I forgot about it- until recently when I found a package from Goldmark. They’d made a small edition of 15 for me!

I was so pleased that I signed and numbered them, proper like.

video: KIMBRA’s Album launch and group show

It’s been a little over a year since the launch of Kimbra’s album ‘The Golden Echo’ along with the group show that was the setting for her listening party.

Happily (for those of us who live in Newcastle and couldn’t make it over on the night) she recently emailed a video of behind the scenes footage from the event.

The Grady Twins sign my painting

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the release of The Shining.

The Grady Twins, the ACTUAL Grady Twins (Louise and Lisa Burns) were in attendance and so was @drbenswift

I think that the ‘best thing’ is being an iconic child of noteworthy, respected horror. I guess the next best thing is to have two of those former children sign one of your paintings.

It put this sort of thing down to my good fortune of living in England and making interesting, nutty friends like Dr Ben.
