Stephen Appleby-Barr

This is Stephen, one of my closest friends. The girl in the photo is my room mate Adrienne, who happens to be Stephen's girlfriend.

Back in 2005 I moved into a studio apartment up at Dupont and Ossington, and Stephen was my next door neighbour... At first we didn't really like each other, but after about a year we were ok with each other, then we eventually became friends. When I moved back from Italy and had nowhere to stay, Stephen and the rest of the Team Macho guys let me sleep under their ping-pong table... I would often wake up to the sound of the guys playing ping-pong, which is more relaxing than you would expect...

Anyway, the point of the story is that tomorrow (Thursday) night, Stephen has a solo show of his paintings at Narwhal Art Projects. It's his second solo show, although he has done several shows as a group with Team Macho... Anyway, his work is really good, so if you are free, you should come. I'm linking all of the show info, it can be found..... HERE!

Hi Nick,
I was wondering if you'd seen the new David Attenborough 'Life' series. Watching all those incredibly close up detailed shots of minuscule frogs and the like, I can't help but think of your drawings. If you haven't I'm sure you'd find it most rewarding.

All the best

Strange coincidence, I was watching the episode on fish when I saw your post...I'm SO excited the BBC is doing this, David Attenborough is the best:)

That is one ghetto looking ping pong table.
