Next month I'll be giving blood for the first time. This is (mainly) because my niece was given a blood transfusion last year and it saved her life.
I'm releasing an EP of old 4-track tape recordings to remind myself to not be so selfish with something that other people need more than me.
These 'songs' are experiments from '08 when I found myself living in my studio, so don't get too excited.
The EP will be a limited edition of 25 CD-r's, and each CD will come with an original blood drawing.
The EP that I recorded back in 2011 is now on Soundcloud in all it's crappy 4-track off-key glory.
Enjoy, dislike or ignore at your leisure.
Sculptor and former Threadneedle Prize winner Tim Shaw has selected my video piece 'Tom' to be exhibited at this years Threadneedle Prize For Painting & Sculpture. Tim cites this piece as one of his favourite artworks, and I thank him for selecting it.

I'm showing new work at an exhibition in Truro, Cornwall.
Launch night Thursday 28th March.
The Old Coffin Store - Walsingham Place, Truro, TR1 2RP
This event is a celebration of visual arts culture taking place in Cornwall – a coming together to celebrate achievement through painting, sculpture, film, performance, sound, collaborative art projects, screenings and talks. It will showcase the diverse practice of artists over a series of events.
Here is a playlist that I made for the Studio Music Project.
Studio Music provides an insight into the creative process of visual practitioners, through the music that they listen to whilst working.
Two new artist playlist's will be added to the site at the beginning of each week.
Also, another year, another writer... this time it's Sacha Waldron.

Happy New Year Everyone. Let's bring 2013 to it's knees.
The split EP Father Iceberg was released one year ago today.
I've decided to make the short story that came with the package available for download as a PDF.
This story is best experienced printed out onto off-white A4 paper and read next to an open fire.
