Where there’s muck there’s Brass.. Or so the saying goes. It proved true for Erasmus. Mistaken for dead and ejected to a scrap heap, he slowly recovered and began to rebuild his broken body from that lay around him. Exchanging his steam drive for a clockwork one allowed him to go without fuel and cut another tie to his dependence on society. He dropped out for a while, scavenging the heaps, organising and cataloguing. Then he returned with a new and successful venture. Forging an innovative line in reclaimation yards which became a new trend among the middle classes.

The crowning glory of the current “Oddfellows” show at Stranger Factory is the collaborative sculpture between myself and the astonishingly talented Chet Zar. A tower of robot and monster goodness. Who controls who in this mash up of metal, bone and flesh. The piece took many months to complete with parts going back and forth across continents. The final result is a probably never to be repeated, surreal bio-mechanical wonder. The whole thing stands some 21″ tall in case you were wondering just how big it was.
It was a real pleasure and privilege to be able to work with Chet on this project. The results are even better than I could have hoped for.
The new science of Photography heralds a fresh artistic era.
One in which the everyman can create images as beautiful as any trained painter.
Why hire a professional when with the simple application of basic equipment anyone can take their own pictures.
A popular idea not shared by Tiberius.
Anyone may be able to click off a few snap shots. But it takes great skill to make truly great images.
Just dont get him started on the advantages of photographs over paintings.

Once part of a larger factory building the original wave of Mechtorians, Mr. Weatherspoon was the first to see the sense in offering a new sort of service to the growing population. His establishment caters for the wealthier members of society who want a bit of a brush up and a re-fresh. His team of professional craftsmen can offer a wide range of upgrades or refurbishments to suit any need or desire. From simple lube job to relieve those little twinges to a total body remodel to meet the needs of ever changing fashions. Fast, discreet and hygienic.

Sebastian Whittler - Toy maker
Renown throughout the land for their marvellous toys, Sebastian is one half of the famous Whittler brothers.
He works miniature mechanical miracles with whatever comes to hand. Creating curious characters and fantastical clockwork facies for the discerning collector.
He has the sense when he works that he is breathing a little bit of his soul into each of his creations.
An odd idea as they are, after all only clockwork.
Not real living clockwork like himself.

I will have a booth at ToyconUK on Saturday the 6th of April in central London.
This is the first designer toy convention in the UK and proves to be a splendid day out with a who’s who of UK and Europe’s top toy people in attendance.
I will have a small selection of production toys available (including some rare pieces). An original sculpture, a selection of original ink drawings as well as prints, badges, stickers and postcards. Please bring cash as I dont have the technology to deal with cards yet.
I will be happy to sign your toys or books and doodle in sketchbooks. But please remember people purchasing from the booth get preferential treatment.
Below is a floorplan of the hall so you can find me easily.
