Rad Photo & Write Up


Before my opening the other night, I told myself a dozen times to make sure to get photos on the night – and if nothing else – of my outfit! Ha – priorities! Of course once the party kicked off I was so busy scurrying around from person to person, mingling, checking the music, making sure the vids were playing, etc; that like always – I forgot! I even tried to take a selfie in the downstairs toilets but they didn’t turn out. Then right near the end of the night I happened to meet a photographer named Nathan Thomas Jones – who asked could he take my pic and directed me in the middle of London Road for a very dramatic shot! Also the one above – I’m standing infront of the Co-Op Supermarket with the Dallas Fried chicken reflecting on the windows – drama! Anyhoo, click the pic or here to see his other amazing shot and write up – Thanx Nathan! More soon oxo gd

Thank you to everyone who came down last night to help me celebrate my opening!! Great to see so many familiar faces and meet many new ones! A FAB time was had by all! I cut myself, bruised myself, & even shocked myself with this show and will now today remain in bed, horizontal, licking my wounds… The show is up for a few months so if you didn’t see it – have a look! At The St Leonard Pub 16-18 London Road. Thanx to Oliver Crowther, Allen Clarke, Jo Perfect, Liz de Havilland & The St leonard for all your help… oxo GD

New Stickers for Electric Crazyland!

I switched up my app with some new fun stickers! Initially when the iphone ad dropped, I was told to use all the gifs that were featured. There were 12 in all, and at the time I had a job on. It all came about so quick, that I just grabbed a few more I thought would go, without really thinking of functionality. They were more fun than functioning… Anyhoo, I kept half of my set and swapped out the others for some new ones! A puking cyclops baby, an alien cheers, tears of a clown, an angry devil, a laughing devil, a peace sign, and BFF chihuahua’s! So now it’s not just trippy art for your messages, but you can say something too! If you do have it already, just click for the update. And if you don’t have it, click here or the pic to get it! only 99 cents! Come on! oxo GD

Anyhoo, the amazing neon light designer and all around glamour puss Rebecca Mason has opened up a new gallery in Folkestone called Sentient Rooms, and I am happy to say they are stocking my work! Super stoked to be showing in such a cool space with so many other rad artists! And pleased to tell you, that my work has been flying outta there! Yay!
