Invitation for Fluff

Mahiki Buttons and Rollovers PNG

My sexy png for Mahiki. This sort of file turns me on. Sexually and visually the concept of having one square file of all the buttons with their different states.

RookieCreative Launch- Portobello

With a necklace borrowed from Beyond the Valley and a race to upload new arrows and buttons the unicorns rushed form the Grove End Road kitchen to portobello in stupid shoes to a wonderful champagne reception to witness the chic, heeled and spectacled gather to celebrate RookieCreatives launch. A proud moment for me and Chloe.

GROVE-END-ROAD== Home, Gallery,Theatre, Website

19th July 2011 come and witness me and Harriet try to orchestrate a night of fancy. A culmination of art, music and theatre. Me and Chloe at We Breed Unicorns decided to create a website for this pop up event.

Simple concept each colour represents a section and each coloured box links to that persons website its like a digital programme for each artist or performer.

Rookie Creative Website Complete

After months of planning, contemplation and late night working We Breed Unicorns finally has finished Rookie Creative. The creative portal belonging to Sacha Harrison is now up and running with interesting, insightful and comedic articles and interviews- skip to me being asked whether i'd prefer to eat Johnny Flynn or Laura Marling. Congratulations to Sacha and all the wonderful contributors on their amazing launch party and the amazing brins behnd the content of this site. It was a learning curve for all of us but we got their in the end. Click here to have a read.

Johnny Flynn Writes a Poem

Tracey Emins show lead to the purchase of this divine book. With rounded corners and thick blank pages - Stationary love right there. On Sunday we went in persuit of the talented beautiful man himself. The dreamer and poet and father and godman was standing modestly to the right of the stage before his performance so I scuttled up to speak to him and he wrote this Dorothy Parker poem in my book for me. Timidly he scrawled, stopping to tuck his dishelvelled hair behind his ear. The Slow Clubs Rebecca then did the same so I thought of it as maybe a mini project of sorts. I ask myself what if the book had said, well, something else.

The Poem reads:

"Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren’t lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live."
Dorothy Parker

DR MIX at The Working Mans Club- Bethnal Green

We went to ex Stone Roses hero John Squire's new solo show and reflected longingly over his beautiful geometric paintings representing Lindsey Lohan, Woody Allen and of course Gaga. With a bagel soon in hand and a skip in our steps we rolled out to a charity night at the Working Mans Club ft music by The Waylayers (White Lies meets Foals -lineup right) and not forgetting Dr Mix. His concept being that you place your greatest fear in his hands and he returns to you with a mix-tape to cure your anxiety, (playlist left). Without the want to seem so sombre on the topic of the old L word it was relevant as we'd just discussed how Marilyn Monroe never found it and.....never.....had an orgasm. So there I was a vision a little less graceful than Mazza her bloody-self asking a complete stranger to heal my darkest fear. So yes, self reflection and fear seeking may all seem a bundle of annoyance to many but in this instance it was kinda ok I think. Kinda ok to receive a shiny new disc of understanding. No more biography shIt for a while mind.

Bon Bon Bakery Logo - From a Piping Bag to Photoshop

With a piping bag and a whole lot of butter icing I piped one letter after the other, a 'b' and 'o' and an 'n' and then repeated each letter over and over until I felt that my hand eye coordination did the letters justice and until I'd covered our kitchen table sufficiently with sugary buttered letters. I then photographed the most legible of the lot and drew over the photographs with makeshift tracing paper (a paper table cloth pieced together with ducktape) before scanning it in....oh and then we ate all the letters with brown bread.....odd but quite delightful.

He Draws Man // I Draw Facial Hair

Me and Ollie Bremner started this post project a few weeks ago. The idea being that we post each other stuff via snail mail alone and that the other then works on top of it, namely bearded men and imaginary animals : Imaginanimals. I like the idea of silently reacting to someone else.
Here is one: his before & my after.

The Printing Press in Our Garage....

A new project and a new incentive. Leo has set up his printing press in the garage along with rows and draws and shelves and mountains of typefaces and letterblocks. Yesterday we learnt how to set up the press and print and by golly was it nice to create an image using wooden letters, to feel the bite on the press as you pull it down to print and then to lift up the newsprint away from the blocks and feel the tacky wetness of the ink.
Computers. An afterthought in comparison.

Manipulated after scanning. Computers are helpful I guess.

It started as a little thought and now after a week of splendid bliss painting the skies, drawing the shadows and living in a hedonistic heaven we return with more plans. Beautiful people must live a beautiful life.

8 Artists. One House. One Week.
