Grande Dame Permanent Video Installation!

Ladies & Gentlemen! I am very pleased to announce that my video installation at The St Leonard Public House has been such a success, that the owners have asked to make it permanent! Wowowow!!! My second permanent video installation in the UK! Of course Brighton folk will be familiar with my installation at the Joker Pub – Next the world! ha! Funny, cos it was a last minute idea. I had planned to have projections on the PV night. But using their projector & screen would mean a big wall of work would have to be covered. I toyed with the idea of bringing my own projector and leaving it up for the shows duration, but projectors are fiddly and can be diff to operate. Then it hit me – flat screen telly! I did a post on fb asking if any friends had old ones they wanted to sell. And it just so happened my lovely neighbors and collaborators in couture shoes – The De havilland’s – just happened to have a telly which fit perfectly in my fancy gold frame! Kismet! Yay! So, if you are in the St Leonard vicinity, pop in for a drink & Tune In & Turn On! More amazing news soon! oxo GD

Grande Dame GIF Comments for Twitter & Facebook!


As I continue my rise to world domination & sticker stardom, my GIFS are also gaining momentum! In fact my Interstellar Slaughter GIF has had over 10 million views! WOO!


In the past year Twitter has added a new gif button feature for posts & comments, and just recently Facebook added the same thing for comments and messenger as well. At first I just entered Grande Dame in the search, and all though many of my GIFS appeared, they were jumbled in between, Arianna Grande & Notre Dame football – ha! So, I spent 3 days last week going through all 204, tagging them with “@grandedame” and voila!

Above is an example of how to access my GIF library on Giphy. It’s that easy! Awesome! So no more boring reg type memes! All though, yes most of my gifs are arty animation loops from various works, you can use them for expressions as well!
This could be Werk, Slay, Fierce, Flawless, Diva, Relax, Chill etc…


This could be Party, Celebrate, Drunk, Sick, More Wine, Happy New Year, Birthday etc…


Yass Queen! Yes, Ok, Badass, Fierce, Gotcha, tough, etc…


As I mentioned, there are 204, so something for everyone! Make it what you want! At the end of the day, they are fun and colourful, and make you feel good, and we all need some color to make us feel better in these dark times. My small contribution. Just type – @grandedame – in the box and colorful, fun gifs galore! Enjoy! More soon! oxo GD

Grande Dame Psychedelic Animated Emojis!

Several months back, a friend suggested I make Facebook Stickers. I didn’t even know what they were, so I ignored her – sorry Amelia! Ha! But she kept suggesting it to me. I finally figured out what they were – illustrated emojis you can post for Facebook comments rather than words. I looked into it and found out – it’s impossible to make THOSE particular stickers. You have to be asked by Facebook, they don’t let just any sticker maker upload their work. I was disappointed, but sniffed around and found this great app called imoji. It lets artists upload their own art, as well as, allows other people share it. So I uploaded tons! At the mo – it works best in messenger. All the emoji stickers are fully animated in that platform. There are other sharing options available too – instagram, text, what’s app etc… BUT in the other platforms, it grabs a still from the animation and posts that, rather than a moving loop like it does in messenger. Hopefully soon it will work in the Facebook comment section and soon I will dominate the world with my psychedelic, animated emoji stickers! Still have tons more to upload! Stop sending boring smiley faces! Be cool and share a veiny skull, bouncy clown, alien & more! Click here to get the free app! Once installed type Grande Dame into the search and all my trippy emojis will appear like magic! Enjoy! Happy sharing! More soon oxo GD

Some Monkey Gifts!

Happy Year of The Monkey! To officially ring in the Chinese New Year, I went through my library of Monkey Gifs (of which there are many!) and thought I would share them with you! It seems like I have a monkey fetish, perhaps I do! Some I made up specifically for Chinese New Year, but most were from prior monkey work – ha! Enjoy and Gung Hay Fat Choy! oxo GD
