Mixed Messages


The Collective of Lucida Whisk, Matt Buckley and Peter Buckley – Writer (Peter And The Hare), each both poets and visual artists by discipline, explore their shared interests in both visual arts and words, in a witty and stylish presentation of recent work and pieces that have arisen from the themes of their discussions.

Made to suit the surroundings of your local library, we’re thinking about how the literary and visual can meet, about imagination applied anarchic sense, visions arising from surface, reality and shadows, and reflections of our present as we see it and would like to share with you.


Neon & Swan


The Vile Electrodes, aka Anais Neon and Martin Swan are fine purveyors of lovely Synthpop. I am a big fan, and after lots of doodle-worship, they have been so good as allow me to make some fan art prints available.

You may just about recall their appearance in my zine RCVR back in August 2011, and I was sure then they were destined for great things. With their recent exciting and life changing(?) exploits; supporting John Foxx and the Maths, touring with OMD in Germany, and their wonderfully dark  ‘B-Side the C-Side’ remix. Ooh! Not to mention their debut album due very soon…  I thought it was about time they appeared in artform on a wall near you!

After initial watercolour sketches (see below), and some digital jiggery-pokery; Neon and Swan are now  looking dashing in some 18″ x 14″ frames (above).  There we go lovely people! If you like your art and music to be unique, electronic and Vile; you need the Neon & Swan Print Set. Each set contains two A4 art board prints; one of Neon in illuminated winged helmet and the other of Swan as a rabbit/vicar, fine stage attire you will agree.

Available now in the whisk82 shop, just £15. Limited to a small run of 25 pairs so get them quickly before they run out!
