MGs on the M25

FRL Print

I offered a prize for a charity auction a couple of months back which then developed into a short print run of the eventual prize artwork.
FRL 2013 limited edition print by Chris Hathway

The artwork/print was won for the organiser of the Friends Round London event, in which a bunch of MG owners drive the circumference of London’s outer ring road on a cold midwinters night with their cars rooves down – its really rather fun, honest.

Roadside 20-4-13

number 20 in the ongoing series of roadside photos. The Kidderminster road has had six months of seeming pointless traffic lights, however while sat in them last month I did manage to take this photo which nearly makes up for the hour or so its cost me so far. #highwaysmywayworcs indeed.

Roadside Illustration

a couple of years ago I helped a friend of a friend get a website up and running for his clothing printing business. He offered several times to print something up for me but I couldn’t decide what. Two or so years on and another reminder has lead to this…

Illustration for T-shirt

I’m quite happy with it, I’d probably like to do another draft and tidy up some of the parts I’m not completely happy with but then I always seem to want to do another draft to tidy up a couple of things. I’m looking forward to seeing it on a shirt.

Also last month produced a CD cover illustration but I’m not sure I can talk about that yet so I won’t…

Supersonic is coming soon…

I never did finish a write up for last years Supersonic festival in Birmingham and with this years, the 10th anniversary/birthday no less, just a few weeks away I should at least put up some photos from the 2011 weekend.

For the record high points for me* were the double bill performance of Pharaoh Overlord/Circle over two nights and seeing (and meeting) Mike Watt on the Friday night who was everything you’d want Mike Watt to be.

I will miss our ‘time out’ for a pint in the The Old Wharf this year though, even if the writing was clearly on the wall there last year its a shame to see it gone. Changes this year to our plans? Well I’m thiking of going vegetarian for our pre festival curry as, while I enjoyed the food there iteself the meat was… well… And of course a post festival pint of Guinness in The Kerryman is a must, was nice to see a couple more festival goers wander into the early hours madness there last year as to me, like any great festival, Supersonic isn’t just about the music*** and the art its about the environment around too.

*I should also add a big thank you to the volunteers and the bar staff who I believe were also all or mostly volunteers last year, it made for a great friendly environment and watching a young lady shocked at the bargain end of night £1 a pint real ale sell off** impulse buy nine pints that she didn’t then know what to do with was quite priceless.

**Me and my drinking colleague also found a packet of monster munch on the bar at this point. We left it along for the best part of half and hour but that was as long as we could wait. If this was your packet of Monster Munch please allow me to apologise here and now.

***The music is usually pretty awesome mind.

Take a look at the photos below the jump…

The View from the Office

i‘ve been listening to Bill Drummond on Resonance FM (This show if the link archives) all day today, its still on now in fact. Its been a 12 hour or so running broadcast and one of the best things I’ve heard broadcast on the ‘radio’ for quite sometime. Great that the medium of broadcast voice and music still has places to go. Also great to see a station making a break from the news, weather, presenter, programme, news, weather format.

Anyway I’ve been enjoying it so much I’ve been inventing jobs to keep me near the computer and listening, painted a couple of doors, tidied the place up some and added a new page to the ‘Projects’ section. Projects is too grand a word for most of the things on there but as I’ve been doing this one for over two years now, The View from the Office deserved its own page.

In C

last night I was listening Tom Ravenscroft on BBC6 radio and the following happend. It was most enjoyable.
