You only have to search the tag stickerporn on Instagram to realise that, not only do all the greats make stickers, but stickers are as cool as aerosol or wheatpastes, just smaller and more easily transacted. You can't swap a piece on a wall but you can swap a sticker. Honesty, it is Stickers Without Borders out there. There is something tantalisingly nostalgic about loving stickers. It makes me 10 years old again, it brings out the stamp collector in me, the swap card nerd. I have some Bareks, some Kaffeines, and I intend to steal the Precious Little currently held by magnet to my fridge (sorry - you know who you are - you were asking for trouble flaunting it). Graft accepted! Special thanks to Barek for my Rad new collection...(who by the way features in a street art exhibition in Copenhagen soon!)

I have a ring, a giving thing.
I will give it with pleasure to someone I treasure.
I had many ideas about who I would give my ring to before I actually received it. Now I am stuck. I am standing in the video store and I have seen every movie.
I keep playing out the scenes in my head. The person I give the ring to, their response, my reply. The woman in the shop in Stanley, who had just lost her daughter. My FEESIL (favourite ever ex sister in law) who dreamt into existence the "flasher". My "significant other that I am not exposing in this post", or my other significant other, similarly vaguely described. And what if I give the ring to me? Or to Massey?
When playing out my scenes I have also added soundtracks like Stevie Nicks "has anyone ever given anything to you, and in your darkest hour, did you ever give it back?".
I have a ring, and if it's all I ever do,
I want to give the ring to....

Thank you all !

I am it and saying I have 14 art images here and are they?
They are 14 images saying art and I have it and I am here.

So yeah, I will probably make the transition fairly soon, watch this space. In the meantime, I am going to faff around with the background and insert a few widgetty things someone else toiled over. I have *finally* worked out that I really want a news column, and a feature column, so keep looking to the right of this post, although now it is starting to sound like I actually want to be a magazine...
Anyway enough about me...
Chris Massey, uber talented Jeweller, inspired artist and basically all round awesome person is making 40 sterling silver and ceramic rings, and giving them away, but with a twist....It is a bit pay it forward-esque (without the tragic demise of the cute kid)...I will let you LIKE it on facebook and you can follow for yourself.
Photographs above are copyright Mark Zuckerberg, or Chris Massey or both. I basically borrowed them having no intention to claim them as my own.

Ears has gone MAD on Gore Street - I didn't quite cover that ground today. A day late and a dollar short! Well done Brian ;)
