Printing patterns

I've been going on about making a DIY printing zine for a while now, and this week I've made a start on it- but things have not turned out how I wanted them too, so I decided to use all the drawings I had done for it to make a repeat pattern- which I haven't done since my degree. I was abit rusty but I think the result is pretty cool, so I've adopted it as my background on various social-networking sites for abit, in the hope it will encourage me to get this little booklet finished.

How did KiosKiosk go?

I keep being asked. Well... it went pretty well thanks! Despite the weather being appalling on the first day, we had lots of people loving the stuff, and I even met Wayne Hemmingway and Boris Johnson!

On the second day I was sharing the kiosk with Lily Vanilli, and woah, this girl makes the BEST cupcakes I have ever tasted in my life. Unfortunately (for me) she doesn't deliver outside London, but if you are a Londoner I strongly suggest you get intouch with her, look how amazing her cakes are!

I've been slack

Matt Reynolds and Dry The River played nearly two weeks ago and I haven't had chance to put photos up on the internet yet! Here's one to get you going, hopefully a recording in YouTube form will be posted one day. Despite a truck crashing or something, and the show being delayed by 2 hours, everyone stuck around and played in the shop, and it was worth it when they did get here! Heather has wrote a lovely little post about it on her website It's much better than anything I can say about it.

Our next instore will be Luke Leighfield on 1st August and I am really looking forward to it...
