Yeah it was pretty dead in there. Great work and I like that Sickboy is making some really nice affordable artwork. Its a shame there was not much atmosphere otherwise I would have hung around a bit longer.
The pre sales thing was a nice touch but this might have negated the need to travel down for some... I managed to pick up a couple of pieces online, and decided not to trek down; although the postage worked out to be more than the train fare, the work I wanted might have sold-out if I'd have waited.
I have a few photos up on my artbleat flickr account at www.flickr.com/photos/artbleat/sets/72157622902063165/ Must have been in there with Sand as I got in at 6 and not many people about. The big originals were lovely but far too dear for my pocket, the logopop prints left me a little underwhelmed to be honest

Hahaha yep we were there at the same time...I spotted myself in one of your pics! ;D
Agree that whilst the large original pieces on canvas and metal were fantastic, the logopop prints seemed a let down.
They just looked a bit boring and didn't have the colour or character in abundance that I normally associate with sickboy's work. Some of them looked a little 'cold' by themselves on the white page.
But I applaud the low editions / price points and the willingness to try something new.
Not surprised that both of the larger canvases are showing up as sold now. The 'Adam & Eve' piece was particularly striking.
The installation was nice, but obviously would not live up to the sweet factory from his 'Stay Free' show last year. I'm hoping for the life size temple for his second 'full' show next spring.
Overall it was a good show and a nice way to end the year for Sickboy. I'm looking forward to seeing what he has in store for 2010. I wonder if he will continue to put on independent exhibitions or perhaps be represented by a gallery?

I received my 2 pieces this morning. They got them out quick but to be charged £25 postage or a 10 inch square package sent recorded for £2.60 was a bit annoying to say the least. Shame on logopop. Merry xmas eh !
