Thanks so much for popping in. After another week of chillin in the SHAC Shack with my fellow doodlers – Facebook is full of Mandarin Ducks! It’s good for the soul, it really is.
I just watched the news for the first time in a week. Ended up shouting at the box because of selfish people and career politicians, then crying my eyes out because of evil child abuse. Such a roller coaster of emotion – and can I do anything to change anything? Well, I can donate money to the little boy’s cause, to the Evelina Hospital for saving his life, but I can’t help him grow a new pair of legs. I can make sure we personally stay away from crowded places, just stay close to home, but I can’t prevent others from partying on the beaches. So that’ll teach me to watch the 6 o’clock news. What was I thinking ?! It’s a shitshow. It’s a total shitshow.
And this week was all about staying positive on the SHAC-Shack, wasn’t it? We did so well too. In fact, let’s keep it coming. Let’s turn it round, and get positive. Let’s shine a light on a dear friend of mine, who is pedalling away in the background at Clarity, drawing, designing, helping keep Clarity going with all her mighty might. Linda Williams. What she has done for the parching community over the years – for Pergamano and Groovi – is nothing less than phenomenal – and trust me – you only know a tiny fraction of it.
On Sunday, we have the privilege of showcasing a new trio of A4 Groovi plates designed by her good self. I think they are brilliantly conceptualised, and the art you can create with them is simply exquisite. Take a look at the masterpieces she has made for us, to help us launch the plates on HOCHANDA! She and Lynne Jackson both. They’ve taken all the work and the ache out of Paul’s and my TV demos by staging and prepping everything for us. Just LOOK at these pieces of artwork!!
I do hope you join us at 6pm on Sunday evening . HOCHANDA.com.
My brother Steve – he who makes the Groovi Plates- has been preparing this feast for weeks. The ever clever Clarity team has created wonderful art samples to inspire you. The videos are already at the studios. Now we just hope you like them as much as we do.
There is great joy to be had in making beautiful things.
Love always, stay safe
