Then from 22nd until 26th May us girlies (Doodlestuff, Kerfuffle and me) are unleashing the marvellous, wonderous, most magical and splendiferous Tentalicious in Arbroath! It is our very own pop-up gallery, packed full of awesome and always fun and a wee bit bonkers!! This one will be no different with our circus theme! ^_^

Do you like the flyer I made us! 😉

So…. Hope you can make it along to at least one of these most tip top events!

Also… My very good friend Emma aka Zombie Pussy has her opening night for her first solo exhibition tomorrow night (2nd May). It runs from 3 May til 18 June at Bank Street Gallery, Kirriemuir. Her work is just a bit brilliant and seeing the original pieces just highlights how much detail she puts in there!

Also… ‘Beyond’ is an exhibition of my friend Garry Brown’s work and not to be missed! He creates 2d and the most incredible 3d pieces too. The opening night is on 16th May up at Diaosu Limited (209 Hilltown, Dundee). 5-7pm. Check out some of his driftwood pieces here, you will not be disappointed! One day I would like to own one of his houses!

And… I shall most definitely be popping along to the annual degree show at Duncan of Jordanstone. Always worth a good nosey!

Have you seen… Jimmy Thomson’s solo exhibition at Freedom Hair yet? No? Well sort it out! Here is a wee write up I did about it the other week. What a lovely man with such fab drawings. Did you know that he drew over 700 caricatures for Melody Maker? Impressive huh!
