Strawberry Anarchy has been making Trip Hop music...

 I have been working with Stew Allen and our friend Hollie Marshall did some guitar bits for it. It's been fun and got a new song already in the works although the next song is my actual raw voice (which you can hear at the end of this one but it's much more scary so I'm not as confident about it so far but hopefully that will change soon once it's better) gonna trip hopify all the tunes/ poems and lyrics I've written over the years.

My Favourite Self Help Book... The Most Helpful of all...

The Four Agreements: Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (Toltec Wisdom) Don Miguel Ruiz

This is one of my favourite books, I think everyone who is going through a period of depression or feeling troubled should read it. It's a good guide on how to live life. I found this book by chance when I went to Tarifa in Spain for a few weeks on my own (maybe ten years ago now or more). It was a cool trip I felt like I had to get away to help myself feel better since I had a bad break up at the time. I came across this book and I also met a soulmate friend called Alexandra from Austria. She came to Tarfifa for the exact same reasons, it was bizarre. I mean the similarities were just huge.. we were in the exact same position in life with the exact same problems and mental state too. We even shared anxiety medication with each other - good times came from hard times :) Going to Tarifa was the best thing I did and I found this book which gave me a guide on what to do next. I have read it a few times because it is easy to forget. I have also shared this book with numerous friends who have found it helpful. I think I will have to read it again. I want my little girl to read it too as it's the best advice on how to be, act and live your life. Now there is a book called the 5 agreements I think I have to read it. People aren't perfect and everybody makes mistakes so it would be unrealistic for you to read this once and manage to do everything straight away, what is good about this book is that it isn't hard to follow though unlike some self help books that make you write out exercises and seem like hard work. This is just solid good advice. It does help. Below is a small run down and the book cover.

Groot Polymer Clay Model I made

I make things then forget to blog about them I am hopefully going to get into the swing of blogging again I missed it and I love it when I do blog. This is a Groot inspired Polymer clay piece I made for a fan of Guardians of the Galaxy film. If you don't have a clue what I am on about I will share a photo of the original Groot.

Some new Spray Painting wot I dun...

Hi everyone I did a few pieces I forgot to blog about. One was a giant 45% for the people who voted "yes" in the Scottish referendum. Unfortunately it didn't get finished because it was about 4 in the morning and it started to rain. The other is just a quick one I did at Dundee skate park. None are very impressive it has to be said but they were quickies.

The Pickled people and the Pickled Sprites.

My fascination all started when I found the coolest little box frame in the charity shop with squashed faces made of tights. You can see it below. These were really popular in the 70's and 80's I was told when I posted it on facebook to show people. I wanted to keep the idea alive but do it in my own way with my own eyes and Strawberry Anarchy them up so they have to include mushrooms of course... Not everything I make must contain mushrooms but I think they look like squashed sprites so they had to be added to these. The one I found in the charity shop reminded me of the goblins from the Labyrinth which is one of my all time favourite films.

I love how this one  looks all faded it really adds to the magical element but that's something that can really only happen with sun bleaching and time. Isn't it the cutest?

I am currently working on stocking up my shop again and will have some pickled sprites included, as well as my vials and some Lego jewellery. 

So keep a look out :)

Newest Street Art Piece by Strawberry Anarchy

I forgot to blog this latest piece of street art I did for my friends magazine. It didn't work out exactly how I wanted it to but It was great fun and I learned a lot. I find spraying so therapeutic. Maybe it's the fumes but it's a great way to express yourself. This was inspired by a spiritual awakening and finding my spiritual side again. The horns represent what I had to go through which was hell but it was worth it to feel alive again. This piece is for my friends zine . This particular one had a theme of "Heaven and Hell in a digital age" my contribution was a devil. Within the devil you see a mandala , there's some cryptic elements in it too but I wont say because that's part of the fun making people look at it and think - "wtf does this unrelated piece of weirdery mean?" wouldn't be street art otherwise - hopefully. anyway here it is....

I just Backed "In a Bind" and this is why....

The reason why is because this is an amazing new card game! You need to have a look it's a little like twister. Very physical and such a laugh (I've played it before)
