Dear Miss Hubbard...

As part of my ongoing project with Solihull Council, I have been visiting Primary Schools across Solihull with my BIG WOODEN ENVELOPE. The envelope is full of letters that trigger visual activities, which have led to Year 6 students coming up with some leftfield ideas. All the work will be exhibited at Solihull Gallery in March, along with my own show on the theme of the unopened letter.

THEM LOT were down at the Rainbow Warehouse on Saturday night raving it up at BIGGER THAN BARRY. We had a barber in our room, so we turned it into a big barber shop...cheers to everyone who came to support us

For the last few weeks I have been working on an education project with Solihull Gallery. The work is based around an unopened envelope from 1970 (see previous post for more work). I have created a giant wooden version of the envelope that is full of sealed replica envelopes. Inside the envelopes are letters that I have written, that explore what could be inside the sealed package. These letters are the starting point of educational activities for school kids.

The kids will be making their own interpretations of what could be inside the package by writing some of their own letters. These letters will be posted to a number of artists who have agreed to get involved in the project. These include Si Peplow, Ben Javens, David Shillinglaw, Newso, and Sarah Coulston, amongst others.

Urban Outfitters Show

On Thursday August 7th 2008 we ( put on an exhibition at the Urban Outfitters store in Birmingham.

The show was accompanied by a mural we did that can be found at the rear of the shop...or if you stand outside Waterstones on New St and look upwards at the store, you should be able to see it...on a clear day...maybe

Bad Dancer

I was commissioned by the good people at Puregroove records to create a visual identity for the music artist BAD DANCER. The work is a mixture of ideas from myself and Bad Dancer. His concept of an alien type figure entering the earth is depicted in the first image, which has been edited into the album cover shown next.
