Huge thanks to Andy and Angela for organising the Cheltenham Paint Festival and doing such a great job of running it. Also big ups to all the volunteers who supported the event especially Dan who was artist liaison at my venue the 2 Pigs. This was the second year I'd painted at the 2 Pigs so I was keen to do something different, hope you like it.
I really enjoyed painting this geometric pattern and I'm keen to do more so if you have a wall you want to blow some cash on give me a shout.
Always love it when a wall is the back drop for a band or a DJ.
This years 2 Pigs crew was Raffaella Bertolini, Tommy Fiendish, Jimmer Willmott, Wolf Skull Jack and RTC with a late visit from My Dog Sighs who, I think, painted at every venue and witnessed every fight in Cheltenham over the weekend.
Here is a recent commissioned mural at The Ostrich in Peterborough. If you haven't heard of the place it has quickly turned into a hub for street artists with regular exhibitions and art battles. I was very pleased to take a couple of walls and create Korps corner.
The lyrics on the wall are from a band that has played at The Ostrich called The Malingerers. I chose this song because it has such a powerful first verse.
As I was finishing off the uber talented Pigeon La Rue was in setting up her solo show and what an amazing combination her framed pieces and my wall made together.

Had a great time painting at Urban Culture Coventry. Although the main event was in Fargo Village me and Kiwi descended on the City Centre to paint in the middle of the Pride march.
More photos from the rest of Urban Culture Coventry to follow...
I was immensely proud of how the Battle Lines crew represented Peterborough at the Tamworth Urban Arts Festival over the weekend. I was joined on the boards by Battle Lines creator Cur5 and Battle Lines artists Process, Arran Macphail, Lee Mason, CurtisCreationz and making his street art debut was Simon Benton. Here are a selection of my favourite photos from the day.
Despite arriving to find out that someone else had already started painting on our boards this quickly turned into good news when I spotted it was RIP Smith and Kiwi (surprise). Always great to catch up with RIP even though I only understand about 50% of what he says due to him being proper northern.
Battle Lines Crew
Gotta say a big thanks to Vic and everyone who helped put on the jam, its the first time I've been and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Here are some photos from the rest of the day.
Had a great day painting on giant records for the Pie & Vinyl Record Store Day Paint Jam. Keeping me company were Winniemmay, My Dog Sighs and M-one.
Big thanks to Pie & Vinyl for organising the event and Play Dead for inviting me down.
HAND PAINTED RECORDS AVAILABLE FROM PLAY DEAD
These three and three more are available exclusively from the Play Dead gallery in Southsea.
I painted a suitcase and it went on its travels. Here are the results.
These photos are from the owner of Take a Butchers gallery in Dusseldorf. Check out her photos and gallery on the following links.
Since being told I would be losing my old studio and the end of last year I've been on the lookout for a new place to art and as a result I moved into the Undercroft in Hampton. Its a fantastic space, large enough to grow and a little rough around the edges to suit the way I paint. Check out these photos from Viphotography.
Gotta say a huge thanks to everyone that supported the search from Metal for their advice to Simon at The Ostrich for his sheer willingness to find somewhere but especially Keely Mills for letting me take up residency at the Eastern Angles theatre space at The Undercroft.
The plan is to eventually hold a paint jam and some workshops and artist talks here so if that is something that floats your boat please get in touch using the button below.
At the moment the studio is open every Friday between 9 and 3 for you to take a look at the art on display, check out the apparel store or just hang out with coffee.
Over the last few months I've been producing a limited edition of 20 blue-eyed Stoners.

The final 10 will be available to email subscribers only so if you are after getting your hands on one then sign up for my email. It only takes a few seconds and is your last chance to get hold of a blue-eyed Stoner.
