Very arthousey Whirlpool films.

These are a couple of videos that I have finally got around to playing with and editing together. I took the original footage back in March 2010 when the River Beult burst it's banks. I ended up walking through some of the flood water in just my trainers to get this footage and then had to walk home squelching all the way (suffering for my Art). I really liked playing around with the sound on these ones. I reckon the whirlpool with debris film would be a good one to loop for about 5 hours, yeah!

Moomintroll spooked.

I've been working on a hand painted silk Moomintroll cushion for my friend Suzi's birthday present.

I did have to alter the design somewhat, as the paints were not behaving themselves. But I quite like the finished product with poor Moomintroll looking afraid of the dark.

I can't actually sell these unless Oy Moomin Characters Ltd agree to let me buy the product licence. But I don't really want to sell them, it's just a special one off.

Art Auction in aid of the RNLI, Margate Harbour Arm Gallery

I've just discovered that my work is being included in the 100 lots being auctioned for the RNLI Margate charity.

I can't tell you which piece is mine, as the auction is anonymous, but if you visit the Margate Harbour Arm facebook page you can see the 100 lots and have a good guess.

Although hopefully you will mistake it for a celebrity's postcard and pays millions for it. All for a good cause.

Of course they've only gone and got my name wrong and put Fryde. I am going to have a big strop - don't they know who I am? ;-)
