Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone, wherever you are and a special thank you our friends who helped move the studio this weekend, we couldn't have done it without you. Ash is still out for the count and resting his arm and shoulder after re-twinging his ulnar nerve but we've made good progress anyway.

At the top of this post is a photograph of a Starn Bros. work hanging in the studio. In the early ninties, Ash and I used to go for long walks everywhere and stop in at every bookshop along the way. One afternoon we found ourselves standing in the Fremantle Arts Bookshop staring at a Mike and Doug Starn book that we could not afford to buy and then we forgot all about that moment, until today... We feel so freaking lucky in retrospect to actually have an original hanging on the wall, it really put a finer point on how far we've come. We still haunt bookshops though...
