Dear Friends! The lovely Amelia Gregory has a fab Kickstarter Project at the mo & yours truly has been asked to participate! That Which We Do Not Understand: 10th anniversary limited edition book and fine art prints from Amelia’s Magazine.
Amelia’s Magazine has been championing the arts scene for 10 years now! And she has helped spread my work around since her very first issue! This project is really interesting too! A gold leafed art book and art show – totally up my strausse! The theme is based around Mysticism, Spirituality, Alchemy, Paganism, Witchcraft, Herbalism, Shamanism, Magick, Voodoo, Folklore, Occult, Esotericism, Tarot, Astrology, Animal Spirits, Paranormal activities, the Moon and much more. And will feature at least 72 pages of exclusive artworks interspersed with short stories, flash fiction and poetry. It will be beautiful and inspiring, full of thought provoking contributions that question and celebrate the miraculousness of life.
I have had an obsession with Saints for sometime now and decided to do an original piece for the project of Saint Agatha. She is the Patron Saint of Breast Cancer Patients, Rape Survivors, Bell Ringers, Bakers, Jewellers, Martyrs, Wet Nurses, Fire and Volcanic Eruptions, and is often times depicted carrying her breasts on a tray because they were cut off when she refused the advances of a high ranking magistrate. I have one large (20″ by 24″) original piece, hand painted in flouro acrylic, 24 ct gold leafed, silk screen on offer. Unframed for £800. And there are 10 – A3 giclee versions with imitation gold leaf for £80! There is only 5 days left to fund though! So click the pic and scroll to the bottom an give to this AMAZING PROJECT! Watch the vid below for more info on this amazing project!! More soon! oxo gd!

Wow!!! Just got sent some snaps from my photo shoot at the gallery the other day!! THEY ARE AMAZING!! Shot by the lovely & talented Richard Hanson. Richard shot the spread of me for Pretty Litter Mag Last year. It’s funny cos the day of the show I looked in the mirror and had 2 black eyes! I wondered if I knocked into something, but nope – it was lack of sleep and exhaustion! Never had black eyes from tiredness before! On the night, the few pix that were snapped of me werent so great, as I was tired. I worried I had permanently damaged myself and had aged 10 years! No more decent photos – I was a grafter now… Ha Ha! Luckily Richard’s magic erased the fatigue! So happy! If you haven’t seen it, my show is up until Nov 30th! They are shut the next few days to rehang the downstairs. Excited to see, as it’s Carrie Reichardt! I love her work! Reopens this Saturday. Also there are a few more places open for my talk Nov 22nd, comes with a free silk screen. Book here! Click Pix to launch gallery! More soon! oxo gd

Dear Friends – I have been asked by the lovely people at ink_d gallery to host a talk on Saturday Nov 22nd from 2:30 – 4:30. I thought I would take you on a little journey of my animation adventure. From my humble beginnings of LSD homages, to MTV networks, to the time I really pissed off Disney, and how I parlayed my love of drawing moving images into pop artefacts and other products. Join me for 2 fun filled hours of riveting stories and animations. You will laugh, you will cry – actually no you wont cry, only laugh! Promise! Plus there will be drinks on hand – alcoholic and non. And for this event only – I will be creating a special, small limited edition print. All of this for just £15 entry! Wow! So book your ticket here, spaces are limited! Ok see ya soon! oxo gd

I learned about the passing of Chris Bracey (God’s Own Junkyard) over the weekend and have been completely heartbroken. He was a warm and generous being with absolutely no airs and graces about him! So mega talented and sweet. He helped me realise a dream – to have my work illuminated – and I will always be forever grateful for that. Chris was a LEGEND. He was also known as Mister Neon from lighting all the strip clubs in Soho. And many people don’t know this but he also made Planet Krypton in the original Superman Movie!! He was just a teenager when he did that!! He learned his trade from his father who had the first neon company in London. I am so very honored to have been able to collaborate with him. A truly great man may have left this earth, but his light and LIGHTS will shine bright forever! Thank you for lighting up MY LIFE Chris! Rest In Peace! oxo GD
