Happy Christmas

What you'll need
Some thin card, scissors, paper glue and a printer. And maybe an adult to help.

Step one
Print out the image below, and glue it onto the thin card.

Step two
Once the glue has dried, use your scissors and cut along the dotted lines. Now, being very careful, cut out the two blue circles.

Step three
Take the piece you have cut out, and fold it in two. This is the main part of your card.

Step four
Now add a greeting. Print out the image below and cut along the dotted lines.

Step five
Take the main part of your card, so the inside is facing you, and glue the message onto its right hand side.

Step six
Put your fingers through the holes, and give Father Christmas a pair of dancing legs!

And there you go. Happy Christmas from me to you. Have a great one.

During the Renaissance, the fashion for wearing enormous ruffs meant that longer spoons had to be produced (another pic for an upcoming book).

Crikey, it's quiet on here.

I've a few bits and bobs on the go at the moment, and will post bits in due course (mainly, I'm working on a new book for Rough Guides).

In the meantime - remember the Damo Suzuki poster in the last post?

Well, it's got the Leeds Music Scene forum a-harumphin' and a-squabblin' over whether you can read the bloody writing on it or not (and let's be honest - you can't. Not really).

actual sarandon single

Happy 2009!

Here's the Sarandon single I did the artwork for way back when. It came out just before Christmas, and should you want to get your hot little hands on one, try Rough Trade (and othere reputable record stores).
