SAN FRANCISCO - the tour continues to the west coast. I have seen some fantastic stores, prints, murals and characters since being here. I've learnt about Anna Conda the drag queen running for Supervisor and becoming the next Harvey Milk. I've seen more evidence that people care about the environment than ever before. And some seriously lush vintage furniture stores. (I spent an hour looking through old postcards and ancient faded photographs from over the decades in a store just off Valencia) I'm ready to move here and that's after a day and a half.

Images below I found in a store called the Eco Citizen and they are all environmentally friendly cards (on recycled paper) by a talent local San Francisco artist at the Yellow Owl Workshop

The view from 18th floor on to Navy Pier Chicago
The Boring Store Wicker Park Chicago, sells everything for your secret agent needs but sshhhh don't tell anyone. Less secretly it uses the back room for a non-profit writing and tutorial centre. and this friendly pigeon greets you on the way in.

I love all the old signs in Chicago.
Offically the best burgers in Chicago come from Hackney's, which also happens to be on Printers Row - this street just keeps getting better.

Below is Printers Row in Chicago. These great old buildings used to house the cities printers and now there's some great book stores in their place.

This is the Bongo Room down in the South Loop of Chicago - I just love the colours and I can't say anymore about it.


Just visited Toronto, and met some friends.

The Curwen Gallery has a new show featuring some of my Pigeon prints. These same prints also popped up in Printmaking Today magazine. Pigeons get everywhere.
The show is on until 30th Jan.

Below are photographs from the private view at The Curwen Gallery on Windmill St. Thanks to Ros Morley for the photographs.

Below are photos from the Rectory Road Gallery private view. The Gallery is in one of those beautiful Victorian houses, in between Spitalfields market and Brick Lane, that I dream about owning one day. I often press my face against the windows to look inside. So it's a double treat to go inside the property and have my work on the hanging on the walls.

Please see The Curwen Gallery for more info on prints shown above.
