A TO THE Q

I’ve been a bit busy lately as we prepare to move from Oxford to Birmingham in the coming week but I had the pleasure of being interviewed by ‘The Dukey Radio Show‘ the other day. I spoke about what street art means to me, the work that goes into an exhibition and what I’d paint if David Cameron needed a gift to give to Barack Obama.

You can listen to the podcast here or, if you have iTunes, over here.

THE HAIL MARY

One last ride…

Wildcard Wednesday has been temporarily usurped by Super Bowl Sunday. I’m busy later in the week and as soon as I saw Dominic Bubb suggest ‘the hail mary’ for this week (thank you for the suggestion man), I got started on this little piece.

I’ll follow rugby and football at international levels but you can’t beat the spectacle, characters and narrative of each and every NFL game. Whilst I support the Saints (nevermind the past couple of years, we’re coming back strong next season), seeing Manning and Cam go at it is going to be good. Thirteen years difference between the two of them, maybe Manning’s last game, can’t wait!

Now, I’m off to cook some chilli and stick some beers in the fridge.

SATURDAY SUGGESTIONS

Hope you’re having a proper Saturday today; I’ve only just had breakfast, so you can tell what kind of pace I’m at today. As is now tradition, I would to hear your suggestions for this coming week’s Wildcard Wednesday. If you suggest a random word or phrase (nothing is too odd), it might end up as inspiration for some street stickers! What do you have for me today?

MINISTRY OF SILLY WALKS

I’m sorry to have kept you waiting, but I’m afraid my walk has become rather sillier recently, and so it takes me rather longer to get to work.

I remember watching ‘The Holy Grail’ and ‘Life Of Brian’ on VHS a lot as a kid. And long before actually seeing ‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus’, I read all of the scripts for the sketches from a (very thick) book. The Pythons are a core part of my sense of humour, as I’m sure is the case for so many people in the UK and abroad.

Thanks to Loki Llywarch for suggesting ‘ministry of silly walks’ for this week’s Wildcard Wednesday. My mind was made up when I saw this suggestion!

I COULD JUST SINK INTO A NICE HOT CUP OF TEA

It’s the English way.

There’s no doubt that the best way to combat these cold days is a cup of tea. It was so cold last night, we had to resort to using a watering can to wash our screen printing screens because the garden hose had frozen solid. The thing wouldn’t even uncurl!

Thank you to Cathy Mauger-Jones for suggesting this week’s caffeinated Wildcard Wednesday piece!
