Well this morning i was determined to sleep in a bit but i was so anxious to go and see the article in the paper about Bog standard Gallery that i got up early and we to the shop up the road to get a copy. To my amazement the guy in the shop that sold me the paper, recognised me straight away and asked for my autograph! I asked him what the article is like, and he said he hadn’t read it yet but would do with his lunch. I was really pleased with the article on page 3 of the Manchester Evening News because they didn’t portray me as being a weirdo and were actually quite nice about it!

Today it took it easy after my lack of breaks over the past couple of weeks and was walking down Market Street in town. The MEN guys in yellow coats were handing out copies of the MEN so i took a copy and started walking away. Then i heard a voice saying, “Come back!!” and when i turned around the MEN man was beckoning me over. He couldn’t believe he had spotted me from the paper and said he was so excited that someone famous from in the paper actually went to their stand to get a copy and then asked me to sign the paper for him!! This i did and then i took a picture of them…

This evening was the opening of Bog Standard Gallery’s first exhibition! She was wrapped up in a red ribbon…and then opened by Mary Griffiths, Curator of Modern Art and the Whitworth Art Gallery.


is the opening of the JNF exhibition and then the exhibition will be open on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday next week.

This morning was a very early start. I had to get to the studio in time to print a couple of things off and stick them up before it was time for the Loovre to go on it’s journey at 9am!

Getting down the stairs with a portable toilet takes some doing and three strong men! Once at the bottom of the stairs we were greeted by a photographer from the newspaper. After positioning the Loovre out on the street i had to stand inside and had some photographs taken – very embarrassing indeed, especially as at this time of the morning there were lots of people arriving at university!

Upon arriving at the exhibition venue the struggle was then on to get the gallery out of the van and inside the building!…

Once inside, i touched up a couple of bits of paint from the move, removed the bubble wrap and swept the floor.

After wrapping the portable loo up with a big red ribbon, i am all set for the opening of Bog Standard Gallery tomorrow night!
