I just woke up from an amazing dream! I was shot out of a cannon from Hastings, smack dab in the middle of London, laughing & eating wonderful food with my dear friends The De Havillands and then I was wisked off for glamourous night of jokes and merriment at London’s Palladium with John Cooper Clarke and John Shuttleworth! But it wasn’t a dream it was real! And so much fun too! I wasn’t planning a trip there, but last thurs out of the blue I got a voicemail from John Cooper Clarke saying “Hey kid, your on the door plus one at my london show this sunday, no pressure..” I couldn’t believe it! It was so wild because I had just pulled out a Hire Car Print to post to him. I had it written on my weekly things to do list. I even thought about inscribing “sorry I missed your tour…” But now I didn’t have too! It really was a blast all the other acts were stellar, and I got to chat with him & his wife after wards and present him with my offering. How cool is that? eh?? BTW, Hire Car is one of his brilliant poems, which I became obsessed with 8 years back.. read about it here …
But that wasn’t all the excitement!! I also visited the Terry De Havilland Store and saw my work in neon lit glory, basking in the window!! How amazing is that?? It’s like a holy shrine, emitting powerful rays to future wearers and admirers… Wow! All I can say is – I have a wonderful life!! more soon! oxo gd

Terry de Havilland spoke with Dazed Digital about the Spring/ Summer 2013 shoe collection and I gotta mention! Woop Woop! ” I also finally got the chance to work with my great friend Tiff McGinnis [aka Grande Dame] on oriental prints. We’ve had a mutual appreciation thing going on for a while and the timing was suddenly perfect for a collaboration. I love her sense of colour and the anarchy of her music and animations. Digital printing has come on in leaps and bounds since I first experimented with it, so I called her up and we went to work. I love the results. The shoes glow in UV light.
Aww! I’m so honored!! Thanks Tel!! Read more here!! oxo gd
