The Horizon is a Beltway

Hi folks.

I am now in my last week of being a Leeds resident, which is a scary thought since this place has been my home for 7 years. But we grow older and we move onwards and upwards. As of September I will be calling Manchester my home and I can't wait... A new city and scene, new ventures and opportunities. Bring it on!

I will be returning to Leeds however for this magnificent event.

Basically across the second week in September Leeds will be brimming with Americana and Alt-Country talent including the marvellous Low Anthem, Felice Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show and many more. One can only imagine the amount of hoe-downs that will be happening... Brilliant.

More news to come this week including a couple of screen-prints, an interview and probably some more exciting things.

Call It A Ritual

Af'noon all.

So, monday past my lady friend and I managed to get along to the Send exhibition as curated by Sarah Abbott.

The event took place in a really nice space in the upstairs of a pub / bar called The Riverside in Sheffield and I was asked to submit something for it. Due to lack of time I didn't manage to get anything new together, however I recently reclaimed my framed Gallows poster which I thought would look nice.

So here are a few pictures from the event. Sadly no shots of the exquisite tea and cake selection, a personal highlight...

The main wall with my Gallows poster plus others including Tom J Newell, Sarah Abbott, Daniel Mendoza and Clare Owen.

Flower amp!

The second wall with Lord Bunn plus others...

Tom J. Newell's rad face plates and some lovely bits by lovely Sarah Abbott

That was all very nice then. Sheffield (the city) was good to us too as we got to have a few beverages in Bungalows and Bears (awesome bar / restaurant / venue) and bumped into the dudes in Silver Hips and Loose Talk Costs Lives, which is always a pleasure.

You may have noticed that I haven't blogged as much recently but trust, it's just due to being crazy busy and there are so many good things to show soon.

I have literally just had this Wolf Parade poster signed off for Nath at The Brudenell. This will be screen-printed for the show in September but there will be more on that closer to the time of the gig.

I hope you enjoy the weather and the weekend all. Tonight, I'm off to see Teenage Fanclub. Perfect way to end the working week!
