Packing this up for the courier tomorrow but after the number of emails we’ve gotten about this, a print edition is definitely on the cards!
BOOM! It was about time for a new portrait.
We’re very proud to announce that we’re the festival artist for Upfest 2017!
It’s a massive honour to take this role on, as our first Upfest back in 2009 opened up a whole world of friends and opportunities. I think we’re going to have some fun with this!
Before the postal run earlier today, a lot of colour going on!
We couldn’t decide on a Christmas tree, so now we have a Christmas deer.
Finishing up an order and catching up on some NFL. Currently have my first cold in a couple years, so this’ll do fine.
Mrs Pahnl has repurposed one of the stencil offcuts for our Upfest piece. Clearly the direction we should be taking the art.
Excuse my feet, been traipsing around the garden barefoot.
Currently working on an unusual commission, so thought a video of the process would be interesting. This is the setup for shooting from above whilst cutting the stencils.
I’ve stuck a tripod leg down the monitor stand pole and then the central column holding the camera comes out at a 90 degree angle. An altogether better approach than jamming it behind the radiator in the previous house!
Any artist will tell you about the curse of diminishingly decent clothes. You nip into the studio to grab something and after half an hour of tinkering, you realized you’ve ruined your newest shirt with inexplicable paint smears. I try not to venture out to the studio in the garden unless I’m wearing this hoodie (six years old and going strong) and a particularly tatty pair of jeans to minimize the curse.
Then there’s Mrs Pahnl’s paint hoodie (previously one of my own perfectly clean hoodies), which is about two or three years into it’s service.
