(Phil): NEOS (North East Open Studios) is soon upon us! Gabi & I had decided to do another “Oor Monsters” show – in the Skene Woods! There will be drawing, painting, sculpture & interactive elements to this playful exhibition of our favourite area of creativity when collaborating. We’ll also be running some workshops, space is limited, so, please let us know if you are coming. Visit : oormonsters.wordpress.com/events for more details.
We’ve had previous work from “Oor Monsters” exhibitions shown in the Pictoplasma Paris Conference & Berlin / Mexico City – so we’re pretty confident our work is good! Please come along to experience it yourself & let us know what you think.

Phil’s 7th poster – “Moon Girl” – Poppy at the Seven Stories, dressing up.
(Phil): We went to Newcastle to see the lovely Simon Smerdon (Slowraiders) getting married to Stefanie, but as always, when in Newcastle, we always love to visit the Seven Stories (kids’ book museum / exhibition space / shop / amazing place). They always have fantastic displays, exhibitions & interactive stuff for kids of all ages to play with, Poppy was really taken with the Astronaut suit in the Michael Foreman exhibition “Painting with Rainbows” – the photos I took HAD to be used as a poster, so simple & perfect.
If you are ever in Newcastle & love illustration / kids books – PLEASE visit the place, it’s fantastic. There’s also the Ouseburn Farm just round the corner & the Ouseburn Coffee Company which does an AMAZING espresso.
