Elephant Gun

I've been listening lately to the new Beirut album, which is wonderful. This song, Elephant Gun isn't on either the new album or the first one, but I just happened across the weird and wonderful video and thought it only polite to share...

Second Nature

I went to the opening of "Second Nature' last night, a group show of the work of 8 Cornish artists: Andy Whall, Daryl Waller, Rupert White, Andy Hughes, Paul Chaney, Stephanie Boon, Delpha Hudson and Jacqueline Knight. It is an interesting show with the work being exhibited between Vitreous Gallery in Truro and the vastness of the Truro Cathedral. If you are in Cornwall do try and see it, it's showing until 30th september at the Cathedral and until the 13th October at Vitreous (7 Mitchell Hill).

Below is one of Daryl's pieces, 'You are beautiful' 2006.

...and in a moment of fluke I took this one as we were leaving...not bad for a little compact, ha!

Proudness and fairs

I can't belive it's been a month since I last posted...Time just ran away with me over the last 4 weeks!

I've been having a crazy busy time, which started with my participation in the Hidden Art Cornwall design fair at Godolphin House over the August bank holiday weekend. I was so busy making and preparing and designing new tees! The fair was really great fun, and the sun finally shone at last! There was a really good exhibition in the House with work inspired by the house itself dotted about in the grand old rooms, and a good show from the recent graduates at Falmouth College of Art out in the barn. It was a really unusual setting as all the work was nestled in straw and on old wooden carts and stuff. I liked it very much. The whole fair was given extra cred as well by the presence of Mr Aphex Twin himself sporting a haircut and a baby....!

The stand looked pretty hot too! You can see in the first pictures my new BF shoppers, they are double sided and have the tree and either a rabbit or a squirrel depending on which side you are looking at. Also in there are the new plum wings! and the brand new dressage inspired parade tee...All of these will be available in the shop soooon because.... well as the fair, I have been working on a big new revamp of the Bonbi Forest shop. It will hopefully relaunch in a couple of weeks with loads of new amazing stuff to behold!! It's all very exciting and the new site is looking really good if I do say so myself. I'm very proud! hehe!

Last weekend I took the Lauder horse to a competition at St Leonards EC hoping to qualify for the BD Winter semi-finals. Which we did! Lauder was amazing and danced his socks off to win with scores of 66.8 and 67.8. Another proud moment, I will post a picture of him soon!
