ONE OF THOSE DAYS

          Took the terrible Goddess to the  hospital for an appointment. Dropped her at the main entrance and then went to the main carpark … to park. Long queues but eventually was allowed in and spotted a spot very near the entrance. Wiggled in and then tried an extra wiggle so that […]

Official Report from Fairlight Cove – Open Studios 2019

    Tina Morris, director of Coastal Currents Arts Festival, strode into my garden like a super model accompanied by Alexander Brattell, anarchic photographer and all round good egg. I noticed that Tina was wearing high heels. My lawn needed aerating so while Alex dashed around clicking, I cunningly showed Tina points of interest in […]

OPEN STUDIOS 2019 – REVIEW

  I made the cover of Vague – the pullout supplement from the Hastings Absurder. Below is the article itself.          ‘If you can only find time to visit one open studio during the Coastal Currents hunting season, avoid Daddy Papersurfer’s Shed like the plague. I made the mistake of visiting last […]

THE BREXIT IMPASSE …

… excuse my French.     People on all sides are unhappy. Something has to be done. My suggestions are – 1 – Revoke article 50 for 2 years and continue being an EU member and having British MEPs. 2 – After 2 years hold another referendum asking exactly the same question as last time […]

BREXIT NEVER HAPPENED

I have been tasked to go back in time and to make sure that Donald Cameron and Mary Mount never meet with the obvious consequences that David Cameron couldn’t be born thus avoiding the present debacle.   Of course one never knows exactly what might happen when having a fiddle with history and if we wake up […]

NOT EVERYONE LIKES MY WORK

It came as a shock to me that not everyone likes my work. My oldest companion, Grumpy Ted, viewed my painting, mooned it and then broke wind. Rude.

HERE WE GO AGAIN

With due regard to all those who suffer for their art I’m finding this painting malarky a piece of piss.   I haven’t done any ‘real’ paintings for over 50 years but having discovered acrylic paints and a source of free MDF (medium density fibreboard) I’m on a roll. ‘Pansy’s Swan Song’ acrylic … nooooo … […]

INTERVIEW WITH CHANNEL 5 ART’S CORRESPONDENT 

  “What inspires you Daddy Papersurfer?” “Anything.” “Anything?” “Yes. Anything in real life, printed, on social media, anything that you can smell or touch or listen to – anything.” “Anything you can smell!!!?!” “Indeed although I’d rather keep those sources to myself.” “Thank you for that. Anyway, tell me about this painting.” “Well, it all […]
