Janne Saario in Helsinki

This guy is the guy- Janne Saario's section from The Scrum Tilly Lush. Stand up gent of a man who persevered over 3 rainy days in Finland's capital to bring you the manual madness below. A lot of the spots are way harsher than they look, way harsh bro. Yeah Janne!

SOMA 10 x 10

In anticipation for a group show I'm involved in this January in the SOMA gallery in Waterford I have been taking advantage of the wet wet weather and indulging my paint nerdyness.

Here's a sample of some of the work i'll be displaying-and with the wet weather set to continue I should be growing this collection a sizable amount before the show opens.

All the canvas in this are 10cm x 10 cm, which is a slight scale down from the last exhibition.

Anyone looking for more info on the work can drop me a mail: aul.pups@gmail.com

Ruby Ayoub R.I.P.

A few days shy of her 6th birthday my girlfriend's little sister Ruby became quite ill- initially she was diagnosed with swine flu and sent home- again, she visited another doctor, and was once again diagnosed with swine flu, and although she was displaying similar symptoms she in fact had meningitis. As some of you may know time is precious in diagnosing meningitis, and that precious time was wasted with misdiagnosis as Ruby lapsed into a coma and passed away.

All that I can say on this unbelievable tragedy is that people should know the symptoms of meningitis- especially those who have or are around kids, because as we seen with little Ruby, doctors can get it very wrong and time is so so critical. If you scroll to the bottom of this page it takes about 30 seconds to read the symptoms of meningitis and septicemia - please read it.
You can also donate towards meningitis research on the same site.

Howaya Love

I like communicating with Love Eneroth- not due to a particular receptive nature of the Swede, or due to the fact that he looks remarkably like Ed Norton, no, it because I get to use the same colloquialisms as inner city Dublin street traders a.k.a. aul wan's hawking fruit on Moore Street. "Howaya Love, d'y'want any greeepes? Lovedly bananas derrr Love, beuariful Love.." and so it goes.
The guys at WESC have revamped thier website and accordingly have axed me to upload his Stockhom section from the Scrum Tilly Lush, so here ye go Love.

All other new happenings are now being posted on the other blog.
