Van Halen Tribute
spinoff, photoshopped and framed.
We are Flat Vaders, 2015-forever.
Ashley, here. It's been a while since I last posted.
Been busy with alot because well, I fear things. Like, paralysis.
So went to uni to write about business and management. Started a society, failed. Started another, and so far it was nominated New Best Society.
I did 14 broadcasts on student radio.
I made new friends from uni and other uni's who are aspiring entrepreneurs.
Applied for a bunch of summer jobs and watched videos on Space. Space makes me feel better about the existential depths of my mind.
Inspired to write a book: confessions of a sleeper-spy. Though, that would simply be articulating SALT with the 'Russian' Angelina Jolie. Spinoffs? No, just developed theories, spun round, spun back and re-released.
I've done no art since the last painting I decided to punch a hole through after getting over a fatal romance that ended in an argument on the street. Looking back at the drama, it seemed like nothing compared to what followed. (Confession 1)
I suppose these confessions will only ever mean anything if I publish/do something. (Thank you GP for inspiring that idea).
My best friend who I've known since living in Saudi is finally in the country. It's been 12 years since we last saw each other. Time to get the skateboards out!
I witnessed a 24 hour marathon bike ride.
Also, bluetooth tracking devices. Watch out for them. It's going to be huge!
We (the people) also started a band, but we don't make music and challenge the ideas behind contributing to the industry without adherently selling our souls.
That's about it. Over and out.

Money is Material.

Mark Wagner - Money is Material from The Avant/Garde Diaries on Vimeo.

This has blown my mind contextually and as far as technique goes, surgical styles of art are fascinating.

Pat's Guitar

Painting Pat's guitar (in progress).

My side.

His side.
 Really just went with the flow on this one. Been at it for a while, but it's getting there.

Eddie's Guitar

So it all started when I stayed up all night with my favourite Glaswegian band, Sergio Sergio after they played a kickass gig at The Box and I got the gig to do Sergio Sergio Guitarist's body - guitar body, of course.
It started February 2013...


 And finally, after many life changing events, Eddie's guitar is almost done... however unstrung. Badoom tshh.

This is a promo video of them and Chris, aka Tank, the man with the keys, talking baws about the band. Love these weegies and love their funky music. Check out their soundcloud just below the video!

Also available on iTunes and for rent on Facebook.
Their next gig will be at the O2 Academy in Glasgow on the 21st of December. Go.

Music, art and love.
