Done.

If you are on my mailing list you've already seen my new flyer and know that EXPIRATION NOTICE Volume 3 is out HERE. It may be the last EXNO, as to be honest, submissions have dried up and me and Stan just don't seem to fit into the loop when it comes to US east coast cool kid blogsphere, which is kinda what you need to get a buzz going. Not sure why our faces never fitted perhaps it's because Stan believes in UFO's and well, I'm a C##t. Anyway it's been great working on it, and good to make a friend in Stan. Thanks to all who submitted and sent in words of encouragement. Before this starts sounding like a suicide note we may be back on Sept 28th so watch this space.
Right then the flyer. Yes of course it' a joke, (someone emailed me to check!) It's inspired by my ever increasing collection of takeaway menu's. I've tried to design grown up business cards In the past, and thought this time I'd just have some photoshop fun. I was also exploring the link between the disposable nature of the menu's and fast food consumerism that they are indicative of, and the connections to the Art Market and photography........ Yeah right!

don't give up or give in ... it's a thankless job but ya gotta keep going on it... as for cool kid US circuit, you're right but they are the losers in that regard as they become too incestuous and end up chasing their own tails and not expanding their field of view!
Re: take-away menus, my partner did several silver and gold menus (etchings) when she was at Goldsmiths, maybe I should get her to show you.. All the best

another one Mark, maybe it should be World view and f**k the US... I know they invented everything on the planet but we mere mortals have done a lot... Japanese, Italian (Mario Giacomelli at Atlas Gallery London for one), Bill Brant etc etc.

If ya need a another partner from hell give us a shout!

What would the chances be of seeing some photo's of your partner's etchings? No Frankie Howard intended! I really would love to see them and maybe feature them here..........
