Friday 10th of August saw the well attended opening of "See It!", Lincolnshire's eclectic groupshow of designer/ makers. Surprising the locals with their edgier but well received contribution was I-Saw, showing one Menswear piece, two Womenswear pieces and a pair of "Engraviti" Dunks. Making an impression on the East Midlands until 23rd of September, at the Roof Gallery, The Hub:National Centre for Craft & Design, in Sleaford, Lincolnshire.
This Thursday, 16th of August, sees the launch night of "Another Groupshow", at the Old Shoreditch Station, East London. This is the latest "Dilly" Fanzine related show, curated by Dilly creator, PMH (check ledilly.com, for more on his topclass DIY publication). Seeing as the Iguapop gallery in Barcelona, flew him out there to do the last one, that should tell you to expect nothing less than a superb selection, of the best that the international Graffiti/ Street Art and related graphics/ ilustration scene has to offer. Not only that but I-Saw's own, Chum 101 has a piece included and as an added bonus will also be playing choice specimins from his curious recordbox of delights, on the opening night, between the hours of 9 and 10, so you know where to be, right!.

Used a different technique here than previous I-Saw plushes, rather than being a stuffed toy, or fabric skin sewn onto foam over a wireframe skeleton (like the DR & Quinch characters, which I produced for the "Zarjaz" 2000AD exhibition) instead I sculpted him straight out of a block of foam and then sewed fabrics on for his skin and clothes. Pulling tight stiches to define the form and surface detail means really the process is closer to upholstering than traditional stuffed toy construction.
