R.I.P Ada Street Gallery

The Ada Street Gallery E8, yet another building suddenly demolished at the blink of an eye. Again, not the most beautiful building in Hackney but one that I will fondly remember for an exhibition I had there with Kate Gibb.
That's my brother Hogan helping us hang things straight in 2008!

Paintbox Jury

While tidying up my computer and archiving a few bits and bobs I chanced upon a folder which made me smile. A while ago (in less busy times) I used to submit my versions of album artwork to Gideon Coe's 'paintbox jury' page on the BBC 6 music website. Listeners submitted their basic artwork for other listeners to guess what the albums were. I got quite into doing them as they took me a matter of minutes and made me laugh... a lot. I'll tell you that the first one is Pelican West by Haircut 100, see if you can guess the rest.

Lesney factory update

I was presumptuous in my last post by stating that the Lesney Factory will be making way for something 2012 related, I was wrong. Guess what they are planning? See the proposal here.

Lesney factory

Driving down Homerton Road this morning I was saddened to see that demolition has started on the Lesney Industries factory where the much loved Matchbox toys were once made. Its not the most beautiful building in the world but it is still a shame to see another important piece of local history raised to the ground to make way for the 2012 Olympics.

New Year's Day

Remarkable New Year's Day sky on the Kent coastline, foreboding heavy clouds looking east towards the South Foreland Lighthouse and sunnier sky's over the white cliffs looking west towards Dover. Lets hope that 2010 sees us all looking west. Happy new year.
