Well, the album's finally out and the video finished. A few festivals and then we'll have to knuckle down and write the next one! Happy Sunday all. x
If You Like That - Design
Something for a Sunday morning!
My darling wife Helen, Rob Parry and Simon Barber performing a fantastic track from their new album, Black Marker Red Marker, at The Eastville Project in Yeovil. Amazing lighting installation by Gavin Morris, filmed by James Thornton of Follow The Sun. 
Listen to, or buy, the album here ▶ designtheband.uk
Design have a busy schedule of gigs coming up, including Bristol, Exeter and the 100 Club in London.
May will see them travelling to New York for Popfest.
They'll also be playing a set of songs from Simon's hit 80s indie band, The Chesterfields, with Andy Strickland of The Loft.

A world first. Dinosaur Roar Hangout with +Paul Stickland !
Dinosaur Roar Hangout!
This wednesday at 8.00pm GMT, I'll be joining +BIG FUN Education, +Annabelle Howard and +Azlin Bloor to read and show you a brand new special presentation of my children's book Dinosaur Roar!

It's part of a great new initiative from non-profit +BIG FUN Education to share the joy of reading without borders here on G+.
I'll be showing you some of the behind the scenes aspects of creating a children's book and I'm happy to discuss any of your questions.
There will be links to free downloads and resources for teachers and parents alike.
Please do come and join us! 
You can find the event details here:  plus.google.com/u/0/events/ccfvp63gsq3jsq9hab8d6g5skeg

There's always so much to see on G+ but these really caught my eye. Take a look.
So took part in my 2nd Infinity ITS event today did okay, 4th over all which is nice and can safely say I enjoyed myself a lot.

Still need to get more miniatures painted though :/

Some pictures of the tables today before people got going.  The paper terrain, crates, stacks of crates etc were done by me.

Thanks to a few of the guys +Adam Pattenden , +Lee Russ , +Darren Ivey , +Peter Acs .
