#005 ⤑ Back In London
Attempts at quarantine lockdown productivity and a Stickerbomb site refresh.
Yes! Made it back, safe and sound and so far, Covid free. #winning
Currently isolating and my lockdown attempts at productivity is the only way to keep sane. Between jet-lag and missing the family who are in Seattle, I find myself jumping from project to project struggling to focus as I need to get out, link some mates, grab a pint and see what London is saying.
Anyone around next week? Lemme know..
As I’m back and staying at mum’s gaff (gaff, British slang for a person's home), I’m surrounded by the family photo archive which live in black bags, plastic boxes and albums dating back to the early 20th century.
Sifting my way through ancient photography is a meditative and therapeutic process and an excellent way of distracting myself from real work.
Being British, Indian, and Indonesian there’s quite a tale, spanning a few hundred years of jumping between Asia, Europe and the US. So over the next year I will put together a little origins story of all the escapades and it will be my no pressure, go-to, distraction project.
In Other News…
Sodo Express is screening at the West Sound Festival in Bremerton on the 6th August (this Friday) and you can buy tickets here for all my Pacific Northwest crew.
It’s also finalist for Best Experimental film at the DFF Dance Centric Film Festival in Florida and Official Selection for the Cine Pobre Film Festival in Mexico. We’re still looking for an online home but it’s good to see it doing the rounds very well.
STICKERBOMB is going through a refresh.
It’s going to be my day job over the next few months - rebuilding the brand, producing some new books, selling some art.
Go and check the site out and let me know if there are any bugs, issues, problems.
I’ll also be doing some teeshirt, book and sticker pack giveaways soon so share away.
That’s it from me this week, if you haven’t subscribed already please do and I look forward to seeing some of you in person soon.
