Back in August I exhibited at the UK’s premier Tiki Weekender, Puttiki, in Hastings UK. Part of the festivities includes a round of adventure golf. I lost spectacularily, without even realising just how rubbish I was until the end. I blame the bar that was artfully placed at the seventh hole!
The next day, the winner was presented with a fabulous trophy carved by the super talented Trader Tark. And the loser was presented with…er…nothing. So, I vowed on the spot to make a Clumsy Loser Spoon, so that next year’s loser has something to look forward to. So here it is!!!!
I gave the loser spoon to Puttiki’s organisers (Los Furias Tiki and Lady K Loves) as a Christmas present! Hopefully it will soon be hanging in Hunny Lu Lu’s Tiki bar, in Hastings.
To get your name on the spoon, just rock up to next years Puttiki and down as many cocktails as you can! See you at the bar! x
Last Sunday we held the first ever Kustom Kristmas event in Holloway! Me and my good friend Nicola have spent the last few weeks working on the event, and there was a great turnout and a really good atmosphere! I would like to thank Nicola for ll her hard work (especially on the bands side of things!) and also a HUGE thanks to all the artists and stall holders who came down with some fantastic art and crafts! Check out the pictures below! And if you missed out this time head to www.facebook.com/londonkoop to stay in the loop!
I’ve been pretty slack at updating the blog recently and part of the reason for that is I have been organising an amazing event in Holloway. London. Kustom Kristmas is going to be spectacular! Taking place on the 5th December from 1pm til 11 pm, Kustom Kristmas features the cream of London’s alternative crafters, makers and artists.
Come and celebrate Christmas in style at Kustom Kristmas, have Sunday lunch, and peruse the stalls featuring one of a kind Christmas gifts, jewellery, home wares, clothing and greetings cards. Our Art Korner features emerging Kustom, Lowbrow, Tattoo and Tiki artists, and Live painting and Pinstriping. Entry is free, and there will be live bands Voodoo Bones and Dead Sails, plus DJs playing Rockabilly, Rock N Roll and Punkabilly til closing time.
The Horatia is conveniently located 5 minutes walk from Holloway and Highbury & Islington Tube stations.
Come down on the day and get all your Christmas presents sorted! I’ll be hanging out in the Art Korner so come say “Hi” and buy some Clumsy goodies!
The poster illustration was a collaboration between myself and Von Leadfoot Pinstriping, and the Poster design was done by my Kustom Kristmas co-organisor, More Brains, Vicar?

Last weekend I headed down to Pontins Camber Sands for the Rhythm Riot weekender. I had been invited to their first ever Vintage Surf and Skate Expo to decorate a skate deck over the duration of the weekend. I’ve done plenty of live art at events like this, but this was special, as they gave me premission to do my wood burning thang! It was so much fun and the response from visitors to the show was really good! I hope I can do more events like this in the future. Here are some piccies from the weekend! Enjoy x
I have been busy recently working on something pretty exciting for Kustom and Lowbrow art fans in London. Myself and a couple of like mided souls are getting together to form a group called London Lowbrow & Kustom Ko-op. The intention is to put on exhibitions and events in London.
The first event will be Kustom kristmas, at The Horatia on Holloway Road. Taking place on the 5th December from 1pm til late, Kustom Kristmas will feature the cream of London’s Kustom crafters, makers and artists. It’s the ideal opportunity to pick up one of a kind Christmas gifts, with alternative craft stalls, clothing, live art and pinstriping, a great food menu, and live bands in the evening. Entry is FREE and The Horatia is conveniently located 5 minutes walk from Holloway and Highbury & Islington Tube stations.
There will be more details about the group coming soon. In the meantime, head over to www.facebook.com/LondonKoOp to find out more and join the group. Or message me if you are not on Facebook and I can send you more details. We are looking for London based artists, kustomisers and alternative crafters, who would be interesting on selling at the event.
Hope to see you there!

Last weekend was Kustom Kulture Blastoff, in Spalding. It was an excellent event with some amazing artists involved! This was the first one, and I hope this cool little event goes from strength to strength.
I feel a bit sad here at camp Clumsy. It’s the end of Summer, and a couple of events and exhibitions I was working towards have now been and gone! BUT! I have some exciting things lined up! Everything is all in the early stages, so i’m not going to say much at the moment, but watch this space!
In the meantime check out these photos from last weekend:
