Back in Mallorca and picking up where i left off. Here to fix a old work the sun and rain has ravaged but while i am here might as well knock out some new work on an old fridge door, approx 1.1m by 0.8m.
Months in the making, finally after two weeks install on site the sideshows were ready for the public, The Barking showmen had their costumes, make up and were drunk enough to berate the public, so on first friday of the festival the sideshows opened to huge crowds eager to try their luck on the the unfairest ride in the unfair ground.
All the unfun of the fair, there were steady crowds who lined up to either throw baby doll body parts through the mouths on the gobbler or knock down the heads on the crackheads. The nights rolled on the barkers got horse, some of the heads were smashed clean of their posts (can’t be a lot of love out there for some of these celebrities)
Over 2000 played during the weekend, dead fish prizes were won by all that played and a lucky few won the star prizes of our limited edition dolls. The rides could not of been done without the fantastic help of our crew, thats Caroline, Ruth, Cy, Finbar, Pete, Lizzy, Ross. Thanks guys you made a great weekend! Crack Heads and Gobbler are now touring sideshows available for all your twisted fairgrounds and festivals, use the contact form for inquiries.
Finally after months of development, the cushions are ready, the shops been made and now all i have to do is shift some duck feathers. They are available from the Dot shop here. They are all unique and will not be repeated, there is only 34 in the first offering, so go on, vandalize your sofa with some of the hardest soft furnishings available from the street.
Finished the last piece of the Gobbler side show for Galstonbury last night, 24′ x 8′. Its the header decoration making the sideshow stand at about 18′ high. Now its just a case of packing it all and moving it on site and erecting the thing. I cant wait till we are throwing baby heads through those open mouths…..confused? wait and see!
Well its been 3 months in the making but the finishing touches are being put on the jokers side shows for the unfairground at glastonbury. Soon to be packed off , a final coat of varnish is all that is required. Thanks to Teddy Baden and Ben for letting me use their gym to construct the monsters.

When Captain Shaunofski the new Jim Henson of the solar power animatronics asked me to decorate his bike at the wood festival a couple of weekends ago, i couldn’t resist. Hardly the bulldog bash but eventually we got told off for tagging the toilets.
