STOP GOING ROUND IN CIRCLES!

There is a roundabout on Hastings sea front that is causing quite a kerfuffle. Please read about it here.
We now have the stick-in-the-muds who just want the rather sad looking fountain renovated and that can only be used when it isn’t windy because in those conditions cars using the roundabout think they’re in a carwash [...]

WELCOME TO 2014

All is normal here at the Cliff Top Residence although the ducks are beginning to wonder when the gale and severe gale force winds will end. Still, it’s been quite a lot of fun crawling around over the roof replacing lead flashing, broken tiles and ridge tiles not to mention chain sawing the fallen trees [...]

THE FAIRLIGHT EYE

This iconic landmark which has stood in Fairlight for almost an hour and a half now, is one of the main reasons the village is considered to be a “have to, must do” tourist destination.
The London Eye has copied this design and I wish them every success in trying to be as popular as this [...]

MY PUBLIC AWAITS ME

I now know how Kate Moss felt when she made the cover of Vogue for the first time.
No doubt there will be sightseers waiting to catch a glimpse of me when I return from Surfugal now this has been published. I might as well cash-in I suppose. I am prepared to offer the ice-cream [...]

EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT STICKS

My continuing efforts to inform and educate are not halted because I’m in Surfugal.
There is no particular wrong and right end of a stick to get hold of. In very basic terms it depends on whether you want to poke someone in the eye or club them over the head. This particular stick has [...]

BUSY BUSY BUSY

I’m turning little soldiers into sailors ….

… well, swimmers really, and I’m redesigning my Hastings Eye into something a tad more recognisable.

The local residents are crying out for more stuff and nonsense and I will NOT disappoint them!

WHEEL OF FORTUNE

This might look like an old bicycle wheel to you but to me it looks like the basis of a major work of art.
Thanks to my nephew Anthony for providing the wheel although he has no idea that I purloined it yesterday. Luckily he was distracted bouncing his son up and down on his knee. [...]

PLAQUE ATTACK

I was down on the cliff top this morning admiring the Angle of the South when I noticed that my back gate had been vandalised!

However … on closer inspection I discovered recognition at last!

. …….. or it could be wishful thinking I suppose.

THINKING AHEAD

I’ve got two things on my mind at the moment …

… upsizing the Angle of the South and trying to decide on the main theme for next year’s Open Studios. Oh yes, I’m going to do it two years running. I tell you, I’m on a roll. One theme that keeps waking me up at [...]

A CLIFFHANGER …

… where art meets it’s maker and it’s maker nearly meets his maker.
For those people who missed my exhibition during the marvellous Coastal Current Arts Festival 2013 in and around Hastings here is a very carefully crafted 2 minutes and 46 seconds of sheer wonder, beauty and drama. And there’s a twist at the end! It [...]
