Creative Cupboard Exhibition 09

We were kindly asked by our new employees (Agency Republic) to take part in a Creative Cupboard exhibition, displaying the Pleasure Bus Tour's Arty goodness in the smallest gallery space in London, a cupboard. We had lemonade and crisps to celebrate the grand opening. Plus Kate Moss turned up for the opening with a 20 strong harem of leggy lovelies. Which is a big smelly porky, but it was a wonderful evening. Thanks to everyone involved in making it happen.

Happy New Year from the Pleasure Bus!!!

Whatta 2008 eh? Bring on 2009 and more Pleasure Bus antics yeh? Hope you all had a super good time. Over the Christmas I discovered this little beauty in my dads stash of photos. Think it's the only picture we've got that proves that our pleasure Bus actually moves. Wonderful. Look forward to seeing you in the new year and try to stay out of mischief. xxx

If you've bought any prints from the Pleasure Bus Tour here are some suggestions to make them hang happily on your walls...

The large prints (50x70cm) are a standard poster size. You can buy frames that fit these babies in snuggly from the likes of IKEA, Habitat or Heals.

We bought our frames from e-frame have a really good walk through ordering system that allow you to choose the style of frame, colour, mount and dimensions you'd like for your print. This proved ideal for our smaller prints (35 x 50 cm).

The 50 x 70 frames worked out about 25 jib and the 35 x 50cm frames worked out about 18 golden nuggets from e-frame.

My bro, Richy had a great idea. He put his "Let's Play" print in a Yellow Frame, which looks really good as you can see. He had his professionally framed, which takes the hassle out of it, but can be a bit more pricely. Still, looks good bro. N1ce.

If you have any suggestions for framing or want to ask us any more questions about getting your prints framed, get in touch. Email...

The Bees Knees Dance...

The Bees Knees Dance from Rob Ellis on Vimeo.
Wiley can keep his Cha Cha Slide dance, we've got the Bees Knees Wobble. We took this in Bristol, but due to our lack of internet speedage have had to keep it on the sidelines. The dance is performed by Miss Kerry Whitson. Good moves Kerry. We think you're onto something there lady. x

Hold Your Horses....

That's not it is is?

Nope, we're hunting around like men possessed to have our closing exhibition in London Town (somewhere). We're home, but not quite finished. We'll keep you posted on where and when we'll be setting up the Pleasure Bus Mobile Art gallery very soon.

Also, we'll be putting up a Pleasure Bus Tour Shop in a bit. We'll be selling any art work that hasn't been snaffled, so anyone who couldn't make it to any of the destinations can still get bag themselves some arty goodness. Apparently this internet shopping is all the rage nowadays.

Friends of Nottingham...

Originally uploaded by please.yourself

One day we'll be back to set up the mobile art gallery in Nottingham, just bigger, and with more forethought. Alhtough it was a total bummer not setting up the gallery, we discovered some cracking creative peeps. Nottingham has a an abundance of Creative Talent and the Art scene is Well exciting. If you're in Notts head up to the Shop and look out for Moot art gallery. Fresh & super friendly. Catch you soon Notts.

Big bus love to Rod & Lizzy too.

Alton Towers...

Originally uploaded by please.yourself

We made the most of our unexpected day off and went and had a really good time. We headed to Altonia Towerinos. We did the Nemesis, Air, Willy Wonka's, Corckscrew, Rapids, The Wetpants, but our favourites have to be Rita & Screwball Pinball. Rita, the Queen of Speed was like a bullet. Much faster than the Pleasure Bus. And the Pinball one, was just plain stupid. Loved it.

Pleasure Bus opens for one man in a van. He took the picture, then got back to reading The Sun. Then we got out of there.

Robin Hood

Originally uploaded by please.yourself

The Pleasure Bus escaped to the Sherwood Forest and hooked up with Robin Hood and his band of merry men to hatch a plan to overthrow the Sheriff. The best plan was to set up the Pleasure Bus Mobile art gallery in the Forest. Not a great plan. But still a plan.

Sheriffs Runs Pleasure Bus out of Nottingham

Bad news guys, the Sheriffs of Nottingham, have forced the pleasure bus to flee, so Nottingham is cancelled (for now).

Apologies to all the lovely Nottingham folk who would have loved to have visited the Pleasure Bus Tour. We're gutted too. We love Nottingham, and one day hope to return, to overthrow the big bad sheriffs who crush our fun with their parking, trading and health and safety laws.

We know it's not the same, but the shop will be available online in a few weeks, and we'll make sure those who missed out on getting bees knee'd are justly stickered up.

Now, to the woods, we need to hatch a plan to overthrow these kill joy sheriffs.

Search & Tat.

Originally uploaded by please.yourself

Today we visited lots of cracking shops and places in search of a place to set up the Pleasure Bus Mobile Art gallery tommorrow (Weds). we took in some brilliant galleries, studios, the castle and many many shops and are awaiting a green light from some very special people before we let on where we'll be.

As well as hunting for a venue we snapped some tourist attractions (bagging some arty finds - check our flickr) and the did some obligatory shopping. Nottingham is packed full of gud stuff to snaffle. I bought a compulsory Robin Hood hat (as I'd lost one at party previously), and we raided Tat, a treasure trove of records, Knick Knacks and, well Tat. We walked away with a tin, a super 8 camera, a diary written in 1948, and a pair of musical braces. Nicely!

Hello Nottingham...

Originally uploaded by please.yourself

Yes, we're on our way back south from our stint in the north (and what a stint it was). Big thanks to Jonny & everyone who visited in Leeds.

So... we now say hello to Nottingham, Robin Hood country. We're meeting some lovely locals, and are being guided by resident, postman, artist and super chap Andrew Cullen (or Rod to us). Thanks Rod, you're a star.

This is a pic from our excursion into Nottingham where we met D & S Seafood frontman Dave, who has apparently been selling cockles & pots full of fishy stuff for the last 42 years. Good work fella. You're definitely the bees knees.

Keep them pictures coming...

Long Distance Pleasure

Huge love must go to Kirsten for once again joining the Pleasure Bus Crew in Leeds, but sorry Kirst this time you've been trumped. The Lovely Polly, Evie, and Ross Made the trip down to Leeds from Avimore Via Glasgow, just to visit the Pleasure Bus. That deserves a big fat pat on the back guys, big love. Also if anyone's ever in the Avimore area check out the lovely Ord Ban restaurant run by Polly and Ross, it serves the most fantastic nosh.
