SKIN: The Welcome Collection


Image: Anne Weston, LRI, CRUK / Wellcome Images

I'm going to see the skin exhibit at the Welcome Collection tomorrow (finally)! Very excited. I saw an incredible collection of waxworks there a while back, and if you live in London--- you really must go! Their exhibitions are always free, and unlike anything you're likely to see anywhere else.

So: make sure you head over before it shuts on the 26th of September!

PS: For a really cool silent film on skin click here.


Thanks to Sarah from the Pigeon Wing for picking up a beautiful little country hare over the holiday weekend!

Found this poor little guy on Well Street--- Thanks to Sean for giving me a text with it's whereabouts.


Taste of Bitter Love

My favorite cafe in London hands down is Taste of Bitter Love on Hackney Road.


Besides serving up the VERY BEST coffee in London, the owners Bill and Flick whip up amazing sandwiches soups and salads with some of the most heavenly home-made cakes I've ever tasted. YUM!!

Yes, my love and devotion to Taste of Bitter Love is such that not only are Flick and Bill very close friends of mine (and Jack's) but... they have recently incorporated a little bit of RP/Encore into a recent mural by other TOBL lover and artist Oskar Johanson!


Can you spot the little nod to RP/Encore in this image??

Love love love! Thanks TOBL! XXX

love love love



The Guardian recently wrote that style icon and general "incredible lady about town" Zsa Zsa Gabore is on her death bed!! NooooooooO!

Let's think good thoughts, and well wishes while we admire this amazing woman in her fitness video: "It's Simple darling!"

and here:

Love you Zsa Zsa---


Shot the second video for the new collection last Thursday!!

Ufortunately I was in Warsaw (long story), but I've seen some images from the shoot, and let me tell you---- AMAZING!!!!!

Here's a little taster:


Yet again--- produced by the always incredible--- Polzer Hoffstedt, with out of this world prosthetics by Emma Alexandra Watts!

Zentai Love

Probably my favorite part of Hackney Wicked the other week was the appearance of the London Zentai crew---

Fellow studio mate Perce got in touch with these guys and thankfully got a chance to snap a photo of Zentai Spot in front of part of my work!


To see more images of the Zentai guys around the space (including one with my full set up!) click here.


So excited when I received a late night message from Molly about this amazing crow she found!


Isn't it a beaut? ALSO: how weird is this!?!: Molly's boyfriend Dave is an illustrator who's website is: http://www.babycrow.co.uk!

Who would have thunk it?

Heart of Gold and Rubies Too

Check out this new heart I've made up...


It's sterling silver with 4 microns of gold plaiting (that's a lot---) with 2 rubies set in the ventricles, and a little hole in the back to let light into the backs of the stones!


Isn't it a beaut!?! I'm still working out pricing for this one, but suffice to say it is one of a kind--- There's no way I'll be able to replicate this item. What do you think???
