Another sunny but windy day in the mother city. Brent and Winnie went off for fish and chips. Which took a while thanks to Boyes Drive being stop start the entire way. Marc and Felix measured the billboard again. It is 2,90m x 4,70m. To continue the vein of productive form, frames were prepared and Felix got busy on his stencils. Wolf was at his studio upstairs so he was paid a visit as well.
The fire on Signal Hill was too exciting to pass up on, so Marc took off on his bike. Through the city until reaching the hill, where strong winds and a sharp and unexpected incline slowed his progress to a push. Back home and potatoes and beans for dinner. Brent and Winnie got back finally from Simon's Town. So it was back to the drawing table while the fire continues to rage.

preparations for new years are well underway

Today started off with a police raid on a house down the road. As a consequence Brent and Marc were a bit late getting into town. But eventually Marc got to a barber and Brent met up with Winnie breakfast. Viva chicken mayo pitas! Then it was back to Woodstock, well fed and groomed, for some work for the show. Despite the poor quality of the screws, progress was made.

good morning

pretty colours

just add electricity

safety first!


After a hungover and photo-less day, we got productive. A little trip to the hardware store was in order and we managed to get some seemingly nice things. Although the screws proved to be completely useless. Marc was not pleased. So now the gallery space is looking even more secure.

A lovely Sunday with not much more to do than to go to the District 6 cafe for a braai. Thanks to Josiah and Jenny for the really good mules. They packed a wonderful punch. Between getting drunk and eating lots of meat, pap and sauce, there was a brief encounter with a helicopter. So all in all a very successful day.

even more wildlife

happy braaiers


Merry xmas! Again. With much better weather than the day before Marc and Felix decide to brave the mountain. For some reason they chose the most strenuous route they could find. Braving shear drops and rock falls they managed to almost get to the top before having to admit defeat and turn around. This may have been the right decision as at least made it back home alive.

that's where Marc and Felix were

Rainy xmas morning. Almost like Hamburg. Winnie and Brent were still up the west coast so Marc and Felix got down to some stenciling and other projects. After a hard day's work potatoes and beans was the perfect xmas lunch. While on the west coast there was self-hunted crayfish and mussels. After some wildlife spotting Winnie and Brent got back into town and then it was off to Brent's parents for dinner. The food was great but the xmas tree was a bit flat. Harharhar. Tomorrow we'll try go up the mountain. 

good morning rain

Braved sunburn and shopping crazed peoples for a walk into the inner city, which also resulted in the first run in with the law. Marc had found a nice street sign which would have been just right for the exhibition but for some reason the huge polisie man didn't think he should be taking it. However, tequila and freshly squeezed orange juice quickly perked up the mood back home in Woodstock. This did encourage further drinking by which time Marc and Felix had found themselves at the market at the Labia. For some strange reason they had a hungover the next day.
