DARE TO BELIEVE!

We are all now starting to think about sticking our heads above the parapet, and sneaking a look into the future.


A few of my regular fairs and markets are announcing dates for this year, and it's starting to look like there's actually a chance they might go ahead!


So I've tentatively pencilled in BRIDPORT VINTAGE MARKET on 15th April, and the GIANT SHEPTON FLEA MARKET on 30th May, as my first markets of the year.


I'm digging out my mask in preparation!!

RISING SUN FC

In the latest issue of the Chelsea fanzine CFCUK, there is an intriguing advert to start a new football club.

 



 

Some REAL Chelsea fans are getting together with the idea of forming a brand new club, to play in the lower reaches of the non-league, away from the modern-day game, away from the money, power and all the rest.

 

FANTASTIC!!!!!

 

The proposed name is RISING SUN FC, a nod to the original name of the pub opposite the main gates at Stamford Bridge, where the Club was first formed in 1905. Nice touch!


After the sacking of Frank Lampard, it's hard to still Keep the Blue Flag Flying High to be honest.

Yet another chance of the club creating a lasting and fruitful legacy has been thrown away.

 

I've long thought a club run by, and FOR, Chelsea fans would be an amazing way to reconnect with football, and what being a football fan is all about.

Over the last couple of decades the enjoyment has slowly been sucked out of the 'Matchday Experience', with the cost of tickets long ago entering the realms of fantasy.

Early days of course, but I wish them all the luck in the world to get this dream going.

Can't wait to be standing (not sitting), and watching this brand new team, and belting out classic CFC songs for 90 minutes ...

ARTPIX MAGAZINE – ISSUE 2

A sudden wave of inspiration has hit ArtPix Towers recently, meaning I've started work again on the 2nd issue of ArtPix Magazine!!!

During last year's long lockdown I started up my own online digital magazine, and then fully intended to carry on and do another issue in Autumn ...

 



I designed a few pages, then life and a sudden drop in inspiration, meant it kept being put on the backburner.

Then suddenly last week, I had a mad spell and whizzed through loads of pages!

I've also updated and redesigned the look of quite a lot of it as well, as I wasn't all that happy with the first issue in the end.

I still need to write most of it though, but getting down the ideas and designs is a big step forward.


Watch this space for more news!!
