So with Halloween only being a few weeks ago I thought I’d show you what I was walking around like during the dead of night. As you will see not the typical protocol of just the top part of my head being designed on, but a Zombie Boy (Rick Genest) influence of my whole head (everyone is allowed exceptions) being painted, standing next to my friend Esther.
The two brain images are from the Guerrilla Zoo exhibition where a live head design called ‘The Anatomy of Painting’ was produced over two hours in front of the audience walking around.
The latest show ‘Modern Panic III’ by the omnipresent James Elphick’s Guerrilla Zoo is launching Friday. I have been asked to produce a live head design. This will entail the wonderful Kat Sinclair (as always) creating a painted design on my head between 7-9pm. If around do come down or see the exhibition while on. More details here and below.
I was fortunate enough this week to be voted into Time Out’s ‘The Culture 100‘ Art and Design section, devised with The Hospital Club. It is a search for the most original and influential people in the UK creative and media industries. You will also see in the image below I am growing a ‘Mo’ for Movember for a charity I support and am brand ambassador C.A.L.M to reduce male suicide in the UK. You can support them through their website. I think that is a BOOM! allround.
I was fortunate enough to go and visit Beijing a few weeks ago, experience wonderful food and such unbelievable places as the Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City. During my stay I hung out with a good friend and his mother, a chinese calligrapher. We went onto collaborate and do a few designs on my head, my favourite being this one which from what I was told says ‘Chinese Culture’. Thank you to Esther ‘Godmother’ Tung for doing the design. I had much fun.
