Public transport is a big influence on my work.. /its where i begrudgingly spend a lot of my time and its definitely one of the strangest environments i have to endure…./. Only humans could invent an environment where you are completely surrounded by your own kind, but you sit in complete silence. Then once you are off and back on to the streets you call yourselves social creatures. /./../ I am not a social creature../. And to be honest i quite like the uptight silence.. /.

Well it has been a seriously intense weekend up in Bristol for UPFEST 2012… . I’m not entirely sure i’ve fully processed it yet but i do know it has been incredible. Over the course of the weekend i managed to get two huge pieces finished as well as finding time to take in the festivities, explore/get lost in Bristol and meet some pretty amazing people. .. . ….. . /. The pictures below are of the stages and finished piece at the Upfest festival and tomorrow when ive actually had time to sleep and process i will post pictures of the piece that i did and the very grand and painfully friendly Rock & Bowl Hostal… … . . ///. / . . cheers guys its been surreal . . ././ .
