hey jordan xxx
In order to present a coherent idea in such a short time to the french dudes i think it's important to talk about this face to face and work out what we would want to do. Are you in London before then?

Im totally up for doing it but I've got a billions of things to do so I would only want to do it if we both agreed to put our all into it and make it good and only do it if the idea was strong enough. If you see what I mean. I don't mind being stressed and overworked and all that but not if the end result is a bit shit.

I'm free on those dates but I've got work in the evenings



okay, well i'm confused now. i've been getting emails from the french people about having to submit ideas by sunday and all that stuff, and those emails were sent to about 15 different people, one of whom is me... however i've just got this email that was sent exclusively to me:

Hello Jordan

We will come to London 4 or 5 september for meeting all english artist.
Are you in London this day ?
We will present the event to all artist, it's important to see you if you are interesting by the Braderie de l'Art.

If you are interested, give me your phone Number ?

See you


... so that's good. but i'm not sure now if we still need to submit ideas to them by sunday... does anyone have any ideas as to what i/we should do?

anyone free on the 4th and 5th of september???


i don't even know what a pencil is anymore

if the book people don't get back to peter can we all dress up as monkeys and parrots and run around jumping on tables at the fair please?

flo. i don't have time to do anything for the french art fair now. maybe next year? - i'm really sorry guys i let you all down on this one... i'm a disappointment to you all and i sincerely apologise.

oh things aren't looking up for the jungle club kids...

☆ fucko

My reply for jungle zine table is YES IM SOOOO ON BOARD.

Pete: even if they don't get back to you we'll jus' show up with our own fookin table and set up our little area. It'll be the best one so they won't ask us to leave. NO FOOKIN WAY.

Jordy: If you're up for just making some rubbish look arty for France then I am too.

Im making a jungle book but not the disney one obviously

amen jade. ive been trying to finish the same drawing for about 4 days and i always make it a little bit shitter til i stop.

i emailed the table people but they still haven't got back to me. it seems like the mere mention of us jungle club kids makes people be tits and bail out. i think they know we are mega arty and zany and kerraazzzy and are probably going to smash their place up.

i'll email again and keep youse posted

Jungle Table

hi wee faces and poo heads.

i really wana do this zine thing that the willis mentioned. not just for myself, but for the reputation of camberwell illustration 10.

i am 'yes', of course.

p.s ellie is a ho. thank you miriam for confirming this.

p.p.s is anyone else having trouble drawing? my recent attempts are shocking.

Word on the exhibition

Hope everyone's having a great Summer,
You know i said there was an alternative email address for a guy called Sam at scene nights and that i could email that one too? Well, i got word back and scene nights say that they are no longer working with bar 2012 but that they will let us know when they find a place that can showcase art. Possibly promising, possibly not, at least for a while anyway. What does the club reckon?

Friday, 8 August 2008


I'm all for the tables sounds ace! Somewhere for our jungle ideas to have a concrete outlet, if the 2012 exhibition doesn't come to fruition. over and out.x

Thursday, 7 August 2008


and the jungle that is jades hair.

by the way this thing with the french art festival... who actually desperately really wants to do it? at the moment i'm not really fussed whether i do it or not, if i'm completely honest. i might feel differently closer to the time but right now whatever. so if anyone actually really really wants to do it let me know and we can sort something out... or 4 of you can take charge and i can forward on your details to the people who run it.

we're supposed to submit ideas by end of august but there doesn't seem to be many ideas that actually seem conceivable unless we have special weldering or electronics or sculptural skills. i personally think the best thing we can do is grab some objects from skips like chairs, cupboard doors or whatever and just paint/draw/decorate them till they look art school chic... yea?

p.s. word to the book fair.

Wednesday, 6 August 2008


I think we'd be mad not to do a jungle club table-and definitely a jungle club table as opposed to a camberwell illustration table. we could even think about getting two tables?
The subject matter of our books could be really varied:
there's the Jungle Grill on Camberwell Green,
jungle music,
Jungle Hair and Nails on the Kilburn High Road (NW6),
the city as a jungle,
the animals of the jungle, how jungles are formed,
people who live in jungles,
deforestation etc etc.


ps. I work really near 2012 so tomorrow before work or maybe after work today I'm going to go in and ask about it. Just to try and get a yes or no out of them.

zeen queen

home & away is on it's summer break

Still no news?

This is unrelated but something else we could think about doing, a book/zine art fair in london. Here's the email, underneath is a link. We could get a Camberwell Illustration table and all make stuff for it. Split the cost of a table but I reckon easily make it back. Or we could get just Jungle Club table and have some sort of overall theme. Maybe it could lead on from this exhibition. Anyway, worth thinking about!

"Handmade and Bound - The affordable London book art & zine fair

The fair will be on Saturday 8 November 2008 at St Aloyisus Social club, corner of Eversholt Street and Phoenix Road, Euston, London NW1. (nearest tube: Euston).

We have booked the venue for the whole day and evening, so we can have the book fair first and then have a party afterwards. There is a (cheap) bar there already, and decks and a stage, so we can DJ ourselves and possibly also have a few bands playing. We will have a table with homemade cakes too.

Each stand (table) will cost approx. £15 for the day.

You can sell anything from small photocopied booklets and zines, to more elaborate books (made from any material) - or you can make badges, t-shirts, prints related to the books/zines... anything goes. As long as it's affordable - you could for example make 'masters' of something and then produce copies of it for the fair, so you can keep the originals. And please keep in mind that it is a book fair, not a craft or art fair - so no knitted mittens or paintings on canvas...

We should be able to arrive at the venue at 10am to set up, so people can decorate their tables and surrounds with cardboard cut outs, fabric, fairy lights etc. (the more creative the better, but no painting directly on the walls, floors or tables!) and then open the fair at 12 o'clock.

We are in the process of setting up a website (, mailing list (details to follow), and there is a facebook group : which we set up about 48 hours ago!
