For the past 2 weeks I have been working away like a maniac on my new Silk Screen edition – Mother Ship Connection. I have been printing at the fabulous Arches Studio in Hastings. I won’t lie – I am a bit rusty. It’s been a couple of years since I screen printed all by my self. So many processes to set up and boy has time helped me forget some of them! But once I get in the groove – there is no stopping me!
It’s going to be a 6 color edition of 25 and I will be doing 4 colour ways. This is the first of 4. 1 more layer to go! Then it should be available next week! Yippie! Stay tuned! oxo gd
Yesterday my darling fluffy lamb cloud teddy bear – Booboo Beebee turned 9 years old! Hard to believe we have been together for nearly a decade now! I made a little vid of his life in pictures – set to a song my mother composed as a child – Corn On The Cob. This was the lullaby version that did not make it onto the GD album. But amazing performance by Petar Zivkovic on keys & the lap steel maestro – Melvin Duffy! Enjoy! And Happy Bidet again to my lovely wooly companion! oxo gd
Yesterday I posted a picture of UK Soap Actress Michelle Keegan wearing my Isis design wedges for Terry de Havilland. Well today it is an actual story in the Daily Mail that she wore the Coco Clown Shoes! Ha! The headline is – “What a circus! Michelle Keegan jazzes up pretty lemon dress with crazy clown shoes as she juggles a busy day” – Cracks me up!
She posted a pic on her instagram feed and that made it into the story too – “The 27-year-old actress wowed in a lemon midi dress as she arrived at the ITV Studios to film an appearance for Alan Carr’s Chatty Man.
But the real style statement was Michelle’s choice of shoes, with the star gushing over her designer clown print heels on Instagram.” Over 36,000 people have liked the photo but there are some funny comments under the pic – esp from foot fetishists! Ha! Funny, I wore them yesterday too! Must have been International Clown shoe day! More soon… oxo GD
Editors Update – Seems the Clown Shoes are making headlines all over the Tabloids! They’re actual stories in OK & Look Mags! And loads of other celeb journo sites too. Mental! Extra Extra! Actress Wears Wacky Clown Shoes! Ha Ha!
My Isis design for Terry de Havilland were on TV yesterday. Worn by UK actress Michelle Keegan on ITV show This Morning. They look smashing too if I do say so myself! This colorway was my original design but wasn’t put into production. A blue version was released instead. There are a few pairs left. Click the pic for info… Who knows, maybe these will come out too! They look fab on her! Yay! xxGD
I am pleased to formally announce that my work has been accepted by 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco as part of “The Last Summer” Group Show! Wow! I am truly humbled! SF was my home for many years and as the song goes – “I left my heart there!” So it means alot to me to be bringing my body of work back to the city that I love so much. I spent the majority of my 20’s in that lovely city by the bay. And Minna was somewhere I hung out alot! Other artists participating are – Mildred & Pacolli, Jamie Bizness, and Caroline Weaver. The Show opens June 5th and runs until July 30th. So hopefully I’ll get to see many of my old friends! OMG! So excited! Cali in the summer! Woo! More info soon! oxo GD
