Electric Crazyland Xmas!!!

Dear Friends! I have had a truly incredible show at the lovely St Leonard Pub! It’s been an amazing run, with so many sales – I have nearly run out of stock! Seriously! I sold 3 light boxes – including the very first one I did with God’s Own Junkyard – the Electric Crazyland Lady Light! And I am down to a handful of my silk screen editions! It’s been a huge success! But even more than the financial rewards, getting to know the owners – Phil & Chris – and all the friendly locals, has been so wonderful! So I decided to have another soiree to celebrate the holidays! I’m going to have a few new pieces up, plus myself and the ultra-cool Jo Perfect will be playing sonic sounds for your listening pleasure, there will be a raffle with a chance to win a Grande Dame original, and – OMG – I am going to do something I have not done in 6 years – Brace yourselves — I am going to perform live! WHAAT??? That’s right! Myself and my writing partner & keyboard virtuoso – Petar Zivkovic (King of Shag) – will be doing a little lounge act. So, mark your dates for this rare and special occasion! Thurs Dec 7th at The St Leonard Pub, 16-18 London Road, 7-11! Click here or pic for more info. Woo! More Soon! oxo GD

RIP GOD

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
