Banksy Tattoo

Got a new tattoo today. My second, I'm sure there will be many more! I love the street artist Banksy. His work is so political and inspiring. He's my little reminder to myself to not get involved in the whole rat race and enjoy life, by my rules.

Ajira Airways Tshirt

A geeky tshirt I made today that I'm sure LOST fans would recognise. It's made with gold vinyl heat pressed onto the shirt.

Mannequin Lamp

A mannequin I found at a car boot sale that needed some love.
He is now a lamp, with a dimmer bulb for a head. He's a work-in progress and I am contemplating giving him arms made from architect style lamps.
The colar is from a Dr Who Timelord costume I made for New Years Eve.

Reupholstered chair

I've always loved big wing back chairs so when I found this little beauty by the roadside I had to snap it up. Luckily it was only down the road from my apartment, I had to cram it in the back of my little Renault Clio, most of it was hanging out the back.
It looked a bit beaten, it was raining when I grabbed it.

Stripping down the old fabric showed that the bones of the chair were in perfect condition. Even the foam was salvageable.

A few million staples removed and hands reduced to bloody stubs later and I have a blank canvas to work with.

Tried this fabric first. Loved how it looked but I didn't have enough...

New fabric, and finished! I LOVE it! One of these chairs in the shop would cost 200€+ and all I spent was 50€ on the fabric. I would have never found one this perfect in the shop.

It gets Victor's approval! He's found his new favourite seat.
