BLOCSPACE Art Sale, Xmas chaos and Postcard Cafe

Been a hell of a busy week, here in TowerBlockMetal land, i need to go to work some  nights just for the break!
 Monday - received calls from both Sheffield Stockists-Cupola and OldSweetShop  requesting more mugs and prints for the much apprehended Xmas dash
Tuesday  -Gym(personal training aaaargh) straight to Oldsweetshop then Haircut then deliver an Ebay sale- back home  clean house .Mount and frame prints 
Wednesday evening  - framing and mounting prints
Thursday took friends and children to Manchester Airport first thing (India for 1 month- lucky so and so's) drove back thru Snake pass - the snow started again was very Black Metal!!, then decanted mugs and prints to Cupola and BLOC
Friday -Training course and nightshift (picking up a few last xmas bits in lunch)
I am proverbially knackered ..!
One of the bonuses of the hectic week!: i now have a beard which isn't the bonus rather more of a statement of my lack of selfcare ; is that i was able to meet up with a fellow Sheffield
artist ;  Nigel Bendle who runs the Blog POSTCARD CAFE
He is a very interesting  chap  ( and nice to boot)I  look forward to meeting with him more often, like me he is similary interested in the perception of the Urban environment- he has certainly made me think in different ways about how i present my work. Nigel has kindly taken some photos of my work at the BLOCSPACE Art sale which is now on (see flyer) 
The smaller framed prints are £20-£30
Medium one with black frame £45
Large Yellow print framed £75

BLOC artspace just off the Moor Sheffield  City Centre (behind Decathalon) are having an art sale on the weekend before Xmas - Fri 17th -Sun 19th December- TowerBlockMetal mugs , large wallart prints and cards will be onsale there - think Xmas gifts for those cranky relatives whio are sooo difficult to buy for
