Over on FLX's Children of the Can blog there are now some page spreads, to give an idea of how the book will look.... which as I know you know, is 25 Years of Bristol graffiti, 288 pages of stories, photos, interviews and fabulousness.... and better yet, there's a link to the online order form - so pass it on to everyone you know - it's got to be the perfect Xmas stocking filler!

Bristol Festival Graff Exhibition

Fantastic exhibition of graff from the Bristol Festival - it's so, so good. The space is amazing, the graff looks fabulous, and you can bid to buy all of the pieces, with profits going to Great Ormond Street Hospital. The exhibition is open 12 noon to 7pm every day until 2nd November. You really, really, really need to get down there!

Children of the Can: 25 years of Bristol graffiti

It's no secret that I'm going crazy waiting for the release of Children of the Can: 25 Years of Bristol Graffiti, the forthcoming book by Felix Braun aka FLX. It'll be out before Xmas - 233 pages with over 1,000 photos (some by me!) and interviews of pretty much everyone who's painted in Bristol over the last 25 years. It's very much at the top of my Xmas list, if i don't die of impatience first....

....but, to keep me going until it comes out, there's the brand new Children of the Can blog. It's got some stories and thoughts from FLX that didn't fit in the book, and will have a whole load of pics and stuff he just didn't have room for.... This is pretty much the strongest recommendation I've ever made - check it out! It'll also have news about when we can pre-order it, and the launch party (yeah, I know, I'm a lush, but I can't resist the lure of opening nights and launch parties!) and other exciting stuff.... seriously, get over there right now!

Aagh and Arrrgh! in Barcelona

Sickboy in Barcelona!, originally uploaded by knautia.

It made me smile, seeing a bit of Sickboy in Barcelona last month... also got a little tiny Arrrgh! sticker - which is worth checking out, it's a project designed to take over the world, through people downloading stickers and other stuff and putting them up all over the world.... I love their website, I loved their stuff up around Barcelona, I'd love to see them infect Bristol as well...
