Thank you to everyone that kindly voted for my entry in the up-coming Curious Art-Pie Show. As a result, my Orifice Tower sculpture is now one of the exhibits in the show's rather splendid-looking line-up.
As you can see from the flyer, the exhibition's opening party starts at 6PM on Thursday 6th Feb. So feel free to come along and join us, but please remember to RSVP first at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new gallery address (they've just relocated a couple of doors along from their previous address) is 173 Whitecross Street, London EC1Y 8QP, just a few minute's walk from Old Street tube station.
Art-Pie, London based bloggers collective bringing you street and modern art encounters straight on your screen, has been sponsored by Curious Duke Gallery.

Here's a short promo for next month's Curious Art-Pie Show, in which I'll be exhibiting my Orifice Tower sculpture. But be warned - before watching it (especially if you're at work), you may want to turn down the volume on your computer.

Last year I was approached by Becki McGuinness to produce an illustration for her book, Coping With The Big C, which is a collection of poems written by cancer fighters, survivors, and those who support them.
Although having been diagnosed with osteosarcoma (an aggressive bone cancer) at an early age, Becki did not allow the disease to hold her back, or define her. She has been involved with the Princes Trust, performed at the opening ceremony of the Paralympics, written articles, and works with various charities. But to find out more about this amazing young woman, what she's been through, and what she's currently up to check out Becki's blog (www.copingwiththebigc.blogspot.com) or follow her on Twitter. And if you'd like to help Becki further her message then please vote for her blog at this link to the UK Blog Awards.
The brief that Becki set for the illustration was pretty specific. And from the drawing that I produced you can see that, even with all the horrendous things Becki has had to go through, she still has a pretty wicked sense of humour.
