It’s a new and bright (albeit chilly) Saturday. Whilst you’re working out what to do with your precious weekend, I’d love to hear your suggestion for Wildcard Wednedsay. Blurt out a random word or phrase, I’ll pick one to use as a starting point for a drawing and then you get to see it on the street come Wednesday. What do you have for me?
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.
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.
The easiest catch for the sneakiest cat.
Thank you to Dan Bayliss for suggesting ‘what fish’ for this week’s Wildcard Wednesday. I got a handful of these up along the Thames river today, just before the light of day gave out and the opportunity for the photo was gone!
We’re packing the books, about halfway through all the orders so far. Collection booked for Monday, although Legacy editions might ship a couple days later to allow the spray paint to fully dry. Nearly there!
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.
We’re now into week 18 of Wildcard Wednesday and I love all the suggestions that you all keep coming up with every week. I want you to be very weird this time. No easy random word / phrase suggestions; the more obscure, the better. What do you have for us?!
“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.
