Latest News

It's been a long time since I last posted on the Amos Blog, so I thought I ought to give a brief update as to the latest goings-on.

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who purchased artwork at the Selected Drawings Gallery sale. I'm incredibly flattered that all the artwork sold and I very much appreciate the support

I was also very gratified to see the hand-painted Bird Gods do so well, so thank you for that as well.

I think the next toy release is going to be the most exciting for quite a while. I've noted some speculation as to its precise nature, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to keep a lid on the bounty for a while yet.

At the moment I am starting to think about the next series of Amos tees. There are no specific designs as yet, but at present I am digging Meg and Mog, Sol Lewitt, Keep Britain Tidy, spoonbills and pigs. How these influences will manifest themselves I have to idea.

The injury that forced me to miss the London Marathon didn't clear up by itself and I ended up having an MRI scan. It turned out I had a stress fracture in my tibia. The cure is 4-6 weeks on crutches with no weight bearing, which is a bit of a bummer, to say the least. 

I've been given this boot to wear:

I'm finding it incredibly tedious and quite knackering. The last time I was on crutches I didn't have a 2 1/2 year old daughter to chase after.

I'm hoping to be able to start running again mid-June, fingers crossed.

Very Fashion Week! I can't imagine using crutches but the boot is very RoboCop/Tron. I hope the recovery goes quickly. We need you at full capacity if you're going to hurt us some more.
