During the summer months we opened a shop in our living room. We exhibited our artist's books, screen prints and photographs. For a few weeks in the year Achill tourists come visit this remote island. Antic-ham left last week for Seoul and I'm leaving to join her at the end of the week. Early September we will have an exhibition in Seoul and then we will spend a few days in Tokyo.. so, look for next coming posts from the Far East.
Sheep! please come visit the garden regularly.. then I don't have to cut the grass at my return.

We have bought from Jacob Trucks from Foxford the tarpaulin from the truck used by Sweeney's from Achill Sound. We use this tarpaulin as book cover for our new project of screen prints about the sixties. After washing and cutting into the right size we screenprinted the cover with special inks for PVC. Book binding is done with 3 screws.
If someone wished more information please write to email@example.com in Ireland or firstname.lastname@example.org in South Korea.
