I went to End of the Road a couple of weekends ago. A lovely time as always!
Highlights included: David Byrne and St Vincent, Teleman, East India Youth, Belle & Sebastian, Jens Lekman and Tigercats. Oh, and Breakfast with the Inkspots. An early morning treat.
I guess that means autumn is drawing in now. I've already noticed leaves on the ground, and mince pies in the shops!
Good thing I've still got a summer holiday to look forward to.
Well, August slipped by in a flash. Not sure what happened there.
At the beginning of the month I took a trip to Oxford to listen to some nice music in a bedouin tent. While I was there I also paid a visit to the Natural History and Pitt Rivers Museum.
I've been meaning to go on a trip there since I did my MA so it was nice to finally have a look at the collection. I found the mummified animals most interesting.

Ben & I went to a screen printing workshop at Super+Super on Monday evening. We were a bit pooped after a 6 hour drive home from Cornwall but we're both pretty happy with our efforts!
I want to make some more now. Maybe next time I'll try something a little more intricate.
Here are some sketches I used for inspiration...
Penguins are nice.

I haven't spent much time making things recently, but here's an apple I made for a new arrival who said hello while I was in Australia.
It has a rattle inside so it's a treat for many senses.
Probably not taste though.

This week I entered a competition held by Resident to win one of 20 pairs of tickets to see Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds perform a live rehearsal ahead of their tour. The task was to recreate an album cover from Nick Cave's back catalogue.
Above is a work-in-progress photo of my entry, and it did the job! A bit of a surprise as I thought it looked pretty wonky...but I'm not complaining.
The gig was last night at the King Alfred ballroom and it was really REALLY good! Gig of the year? Possibly!
If you haven't heard it already, you should definitely give the new album a listen. It'll be worth your while.
