Well, it's getting a bit autumnal, the nights are starting to draw in, and it's Halloween soon. What better way to contemplate this spooky time of year than with an exhibition of works addressing the idea of monsters?

North Shields' finest arts hub, Creative Up North will be running just such an exhibition, curated by creative polymath and all-round megadude Paul Thompson, from 28th October through to 8th November...

I'm delighted to be part of it, and will be exhibiting some slightly silly collages (around the theme of chimeras, naturally). Here's a sneak peek...

Whoa! See more of this handsome fellow at the exhibition.

Plus! There'll be a fabulous catalogue book of the exhibition for sale, and there's an opening preview event on the evening of the 27th (and possibly other stuff happening as the exhibition goes on). See the facebook blah for more details.
