Stories are told from knowledge of experience.

In the last few weeks I have taken a bit of a step back to take advantage of some collabrative projects, which will come to light in the next couple of months. I have spent a bunch of time meeting up with other artist’s and creatives, gaining knoweldge and coming up with some great ideas.

Having your head stuck in your work is always good but the time comes when you need to get outside and have a fresh pair of eyes to look over your ideas and empty out previous ones.

Here’s a short photo recap of recent Suffoca happenings..

1986 Stand by Me film moment, of poking a dead bird with a pole.

Jule’s attempt to walk upside down while the boat went under a low bridge, failed.

Next stop, (in David Attenborough’s voice) The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

It is still used as a scientific and research centre as well as being a public garden, the place is a goldmine.

I don’t know about you, but I found it real bizarre to see a banana in tree. When walking in a supermarket you tend to forget where half this food comes from.

The famous Amorphophallus titanum, one of the most bizarre things I have ever herd of and now seen. If you get a chance have a little read of this, or try catch the BBC’s David Attenborough’s Documentary on Kew Gardens.

I ended up collecting a bundle of different patterns, shapes and tones to add to my inspiration folder.

Real life Dr Seuss tree?

Tree tash.

Where else can you walk as tall as a tree?
