Grande Dame HQ Newz

collage I am the lamest blogger in the world! Ugh! What can I say? At the mo I am in total machine mode and find it easier to just create things than have to use words to explain myself! All systems are go on the upcoming show at Ink- D Gallery in Brighton on Oct 30th. Above is a little collage I made of the work I produced so far. Again I am making individual pieces for each track on the album. I have 13 tracks, so far I have 9 pieces done… 4 More to go! Yay! Pretty happy so far with the way everything is turning out!
MyVoodooOnYou-GrandeDame 3 pieces are even framed! Above is the finished piece for my track – My Voodoo On You. Silk Screen with 24CT Gold Overlay, Hand Coloured with Acrylic & Copic Inks. Even the frame is Gilded! That’s how I roll tho, if you’re gonna do it – GO ALL THE WAY! It’s a great feeling when you have an idea in your head and you make it & it comes out the way you envisaged! So Result!
tripwebmovieposter2 In other news, I am happy to report that I have signed a contract with Spike & Mike’s Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation for them to screen The Trip & Black Leather at their screening events! Wow! They are the top of Mount Olympus as far as twisted animation is concerned. And to be in their roster of directors is such a mega MEGA honour! Yay! So nice to be recognised!
Dame & Meatraffle Sadly I have had to take a break from my Soho Radio gig. Unfortunately I just cant do everything, as much as I wish I could! Once I’m closer to having everything lined up for the show/ album release, I promise I’ll be back! If you havent heard my shoes, click the pic for the archive!
Ok loads more soon! oxoGD
