Short Comic : Mug

I will never understand Pantsmans territorial behaviour regarding mugs... if anyone uses his mug once it's over - he can never love it the same! Also introducing our new housemate! Possible recurring character!? He is pretty weird... ;D

Short Comic : Infamous

Lately I've been watching Pantsman play the PS3 game 'Infamous,' and wondered why in the HELL he didn't take some of it's aspects into his own life!? He is so sure to make the right decision in game, but in real world scenarios he screws me over time and time again...

Another UPFEST photo!

Check out this awesome photo I was sent! I don't know the lady in the pic so I hope she doesn't mind me posting this! She's certainly got the pose nailed, shame about the face ;D
In other news my board has been featured in the news reports by BBC Bristol and ITV WestCountry! Aaaalright!

Phew! What a PERFECT weekend I've had! I wish it was UPFEST every weekend! I got down to the Tobacco Factory to pick up my paints and find my board at 10:00 - I didn't stop painting or leave my post until 17:30! And I think I happily chatted to people the whole way through! My face still hurts! Thanks to EVERYBODY that stopped by, said a kind word, brought me sweets, bought me a step ladder cause I didn't think my shortness would be a problem (Thanks Dave!) or just stopped to take a photo or have a nosey! If I could high five everyone I would. It meant so much to me and kept me going all day long!

Here are some progress shots: I wish wish WISH I'd taken more photos.. I know people who have so hopefully I can scrape some better ones together for this blog post!

First Roughing in.. I relaxed after this! But it was nerve-wrecking laying the first bit of paint...

ESPECIALLY since this is what the guy behind me had done by that point! What a talent! His name is DANK (I think? If anyone knows please correct me!?)

Few more progress shots before the only one I have of the finished piece...

Weird huh!?

The fest was heaving and the mood was so hyper! I was surrounded by some amazing artists... I had to remind myself to have a look around once in a while to see what they were doing! Here are some faves:

Cheo said some nice words about my piece this weekend! I wish I'd had the balls to introduce myself to him when I had the chance :) I wish I'd taken a photo of his piece on the butchers shutters but here is his Gorilla -

And I don't know who this guy is but sodding WOW...

There was so much more I wish I could post here but there is shit tons more on the UPFEST webby and Facebook Page! Please have a look!

Also, in other news, the canvas that I posted last week was also sold during the show! I wish I'd seen the guy that bought it.... but then I might have tried to talk him out of it like a shy weirdo artist....

Anyway, thanks to everyone again who made it down :) Hope you had as much fun as I did!
