What a great night and a great show! My worries about how all of these would look in one place were unfounded, it rocked! Amazing show not to be missed. All the artists really worked hard on this one, every Boy Soldier looked totally different and you could tell the substrate stretched the imagination. All the artists i talked to said that they struggled with these incredible panels, changing their minds many times on what to paint on them. Make sure you pop in, these are well worth the visit
Here is my contribution to the Boy soldier show. The show comprises of 40 panels created by that master of the cast Schoony. The show opens next friday with a private view on the Thursday the 2nd. It opens in the east end and then travels to the west

High powered Glastonbury festival meeting at a secret location (a pikey camp in Worthing) quickly descends into target practice. Sam and Gobshite pump and load. We are Getting tooled up, lets hope the tool box is a little more expansive than the one pictured.
