Big jobs...

First post of the year so I'll get all ya'll up to speed on the goings on at Costa Del Dante. 
The post I had up here explained my batplan for fame and fortune and so far so good, prints are coming along nicely, stall is imminent and I've plenty of work to keep my hands dirty with.
I'll be hoying up some more stall oriented posts later on in the month (with some glamorous photos of yours truly in a bum bag no doubt, you lucky swines) but this post is purely to spread the word for an upcoming live drawing session I've got coming up.
On the 5th of February I'll be at Urban Outfitters in Newcastle city centre painting some tasty eye treats for all who come, along with Emma H (I'll post a link up to her website when I can), and if that wasn't good enough I'll be painting another permanent piece at a later date.
Anyway, spread the word and I'll see you all there.

The plan.

Right, here we go, in an attempt to get back into blogging I thought I'd post up what I've been doing over the past few month. I've set myself a task to get a bunch of work done so that by time February comes I can start selling my shit from a market (as well as online), the goal is to have about 10 ish screen prints, goodie bags which will include stickers, badges and hopefully patches and some cardboard originals as well. On top of this I'm also working on a geet big banner so I can advertise my stall right up in peoples grills.
 Hopefully all the hard work will be done by mid January so I can spend the rest of the month plugging it anywhere and everywhere I can.
 I'll be posting finished pieces and progress shots up on here whenever along with any other old shite I think that you'll all like.
Anyway, here's a bunch of screen prints I'm working on, enjoy.

Screen Printing.










So I finally got round to some grown up proper art and went and did a screen print.
"Mickey" started out as a doodle and here he is as not only my first big proper print but also my first piece for sale online.
This, of course, could not have been possible without the help of Chris Folwell, who gave advice, help, equipment, paint and pretty much everything needed for me to do this so big shout out to him, be cool and check out his links below.

EXHIBITION TIME!


Sick of spending your Friday 13th's wearing hockey masks and hacking sex crazed teens to death?

Then YOU should head along to The Settle Down Cafe at 6pm and have a butchers at some adolescent scribblings by yours truly.

Dugg the Dog


Since I haven't started any real exhibition work yet I've been keeping myself busy with a comic strip.
These are some rough ideas of the two main characters, Trailer Terry and Dugg the dog.
The rough idea is Dugg is a zombie dog that's been dug up (get it!) by Terry.
The two get into some undead capers, yadda yadda, you get the drift.
I'll post more when they're done.

Dan Ash HQ

Well, its been a good while since I've done anything with this blog lark and the last few posts have been a bit soppy!
So here I am making a triumphant return!
And letting you know that I might not be on for some time, well, maybe not. I'll see how things turn out.
By some miracle I've managed to blag an exhibition all to myself! I know! And by doing so I've let myself into a whole new world of hurt, I'm grafting my little impish boy tits off trying to make sure that the work I'm gonna be showcasing for you lovely folk is the best it can possibly be! And by the looks of the ideas that are scrawled down in my mysterious book of hopes and dreams, they're gonna be off the flippin' hook!
No doubt I'll be leaking tit bits and sneak peaks when I can so keep you eyes open and I'll be bombarding the lot of you with advertising within the last few weeks leading up to the show!
Apart from that it's all hush hush and under wraps.
Take care,
Dan.

EXHIBITION BOMBARDMENT!!!









Well the exhibition has one day left to go then it's onwards and upwards! Already on the hunt for more exhibition spaces and have enough piece ideas to fill them.
Apologies for the short post and lack of anything witty/clever but I've been popping flu pills since the beginning of the exhibition and it would appear that I've now got an immunity to them. So I'm ill as, well, you get the idea.
Hopefully be getting my mitts on an A3 scanner so will hopefully be able to put more detailed images up of each piece.
Yadda yadda yadda,
Dan.
