Bigtop makes guerilla art

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Guerilla art, also referred to as “street art”, is a method of art making where the artist leaves anonymous art pieces in public places. It is often an installation in an unauthorized location. It is a way for an artist to express their views and opinions to a large audience in an anonymous way.

A while ago I was lucky enough to win a local photographic competition with this photo of Bicester Bowls Club.
The prize was to have my winning photo printed onto canvas.

The canvas was nice, but not something we’d hang on our wall at home.
This afternoon, I walked over to Bicester Bowls Club, opened their notice board and slipped the canvas inside.

Geurilla art.

After 1146 miles, we made it to John o’ Groats.

A fantastic cycle ride that we’ll remember forever.

If you’d like to read about our journey, we kept a blog:

We also tweeted:

And we have  raised nearly £1700 for Action Duchenne (Duchenne is a genetic wasting desease with no cure that leavers suffers paralysed by their teens and eventually causes death in the mid-20′s):

Thanks to everyone who sent us encouragement, wished us well, followed our progress and a BIG THANKS to everyone who sponsored us.

80′s mags

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Hooray… finally time to have some fun. A blog! I found these mags in the charity shop the other day. Used to buy Look-in and Girl way back when. Happy days. Or rather teenage spotty moody shy days. But sort of happy too. These ones are from 1984. That’s it. Another blog maybe in a couple of months.
