Being Human

Husb and I went to Swansea’s independent Cinema & Co this evening for the first of Swansea University’s Being Human Festival events, about assassination. Nice. Of course, I had to have a scribble. It was quite dark but that’s good practice.

We’re Not Proud

From November 9th at Cinema & Co, Swansea, the new BogArt exhibition by me and Patti McJones. Art is mostly exhibited in galleries and museums that can be quite intimidating to many people, so Patti and I took up an offer by Anna, the owner of Cinema & Co, to use her substantial toilets toContinue reading “We’re Not Proud”

Shellac And Meths

  So the new woodblock I’m working on has been cut and is now out in the shed drying after a coat of shellac and methylated spirits in a 50:50 ratio. It needs two more coats to seal it properly so I hope to be able to take a first proof from it sometime onContinue reading “Shellac And Meths”

Pronto

I’m in printmaking mode at the moment, with a woodcut and a silkscreen in development. This woodcut will hopefully be ready for an event at Swansea’s Cinema & Co this Saturday, November 9th. It’s a free event with a screening of the marvellous film “Set Fire To The Stars“, poetry, music and new art throughoutContinue reading “Pronto”

Heads On Show

I did this suite of portrait heads based on drawings from my first visit to Pakistan a few years back. I used polyurethane foamboard, the sort used by signwriters, instead of lino or wood. The block below is the one on the left in the middle row above, inked up and printed. They’ve never beenContinue reading “Heads On Show”

Engage And Scribble

  Husb was pitching an idea at the RSA Engage event at Swansea’s Cinema & Co this evening. The RSA is holding 20 Engage events across the UK which give people an opportunity to pitch an idea they want to develop in their local community, to get support from an informed audience and make newContinue reading “Engage And Scribble”

A Gig On #Caturday

  Husb and I just got back from a gig at Cinema & Co with the fabulous psychedelic band Omnichron. Of course, I had to have a scribble.     Here’s a lovely song for #Caturday  by Omnichron – it’s about a cat called Marmalade…      

The Huddle

Husb and I went to an event at the excellent Cinema & Co this evening, a showing of the Leonardo di Caprio documentary, “After The Flood”,  organised by the Swansea Ecobricks Community. The film was really good, there was a pop-up kitchen provided by Goggi – gorgeous vegetable byriani with chick pea curry and aContinue reading “The Huddle”

The Menstrual Product Mambo

The #periodpositive campaign and the concept of period positivity started as a phrase coined by former head of PSHE, comedian and education researcher Chella Quint, grew into a campaign, a trademark, and then a charter programme. I saw her perform at Cinema & Co a few nights ago and she was hilarious. We got upContinue reading “The Menstrual Product Mambo”

Period Positive

    I went to an event, A Bloody Good Night, at Swansea’s excellent independent art centre, Cinema & Co, a few evenings ago. It was organised by Swansea Takes On Period Poverty (STOPP) and it was their official launch party & fundraiser. There was a special performance from the brilliant bilingual singer Bronwen LewisContinue reading “Period Positive”
