A tribute to Paris.


It would be all too easy to focus on the deaths from the recent Paris attacks but let us celebrate life. Those killed last Friday evening were out enjoying themselves, with friends, with other like-minded people, un joie de vivre. This is the human spirit.

We were at Le Bataclan to catch band a month after the Hebdo attacks happened. The same club attacked by the gunmen. How easy could we have suffered the same fate? I have a short clip on my phone of the band playing on stage; how quickly could that have been interrupted by gunfire and screaming? It scares me if I think about it too much.

No! There is no use in fear of death, chaos or the unknown. We cannot control those things. However, we are in control of our lives! I will enjoy life for all it will give, for each drop it will relent. There are too many of us who love living life to ever be conquered!

Thank you Paul Cornhill for suggesting ‘liberté, égalité, fraternité’ for this week’s Wildcard Wednesday.

'No Rabbits Allowed'


Come to think of it, I can’t remember how I got this carrot, but I’ll be damned if I relent to these rabbits!

So after a relentless campaign by Phil Smith, his suggestion of ‘no rabbits allowed’ has finally become a street sticker for Wildcard Wednesday. The vote was tied between Dan Bayliss and Phil but seeing as Dan’s suggestion was picked last week, I opted for Phil’s.

Each rabbit represents each week you suggested ‘no rabbits allowed’ for the wildcard, Phil!


What’s good, everyone? So, you know it’s Saturday today… that means two things for me: a distinct lack of couriers waking me up in the morning and asking you for your excellent Wildcard Wednesday suggestions. Let’s have another democratic one this week!

Suggest a random word or phrase (to maybe be chosen as a starting point for a sticker) and then ‘like’ any other suggestions you like. Whichever suggestion has the most ‘likes’ by Monday evening will become a sticker.

Presentation box for 'A History Of Us' legacy edition.


So the books are expected to arrive at some point this week but the presentation boxes for the Legacy edition for the ‘A History Of Us’ book arrived today in all it’s foiled stamped glory. Everything is coming together now, so we expect to have the books shipped soon. So soon. Sooooooon.

“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”

Thanks to Mark Tarrant for suggesting ‘hoverboard’ for this week’s Wildcard Wednesday. I don’t know if you were referencing Back To The Future II or the swegways that have been in the news lately but I was planning to release a screen print (see below) for today and so killed two birds with one stone.

Some bad news and good news about the book…
Bad news first: the ‘A History Of Us‘ book will be delayed again. I wanted to let you all know earlier than today but the printers haven’t been able to tell me when the pallet of books would arrive until just half an hour ago. I am in all honesty exasperated with them by this point and I know some of you might be feeling the same. We will now be shipping the book 5th November.
Good news now: everyone who has preordered the book will receive an exclusive ‘Napolean’ screen print with their book. We were planning to do this before this book delay anyway and leave it as a surprise but we thought we’d share it now to soften the blow. It’s a hand printed four colour print on Heritage Rag 300gsm, 13cm square in size, embossed, signed and numbered. Only those of you kind enough to preorder the book will receive this print and it won’t be available anywhere else.
If this delay has caused a problem for you, please let us know and we’ll do our best to sort something out. Again, thank you for your extreme patience. The book is nigh!
