This is Chad Banger, co-created with artist Gus Hughes. He was commissioned in 2008 to launch the now-defunct 4mations website. He has a sausage for a head. That’s Chad, not Gus. Gus has a head for a head, although it is admittedly stuffed with strange meat indeed. Tasty though.
This was my third film, but I tell everybody it was my first. It got shortlisted for the BBC New Talent Filmmakers Award in 2004. It was then selected to tour cinemas nationwide in 2005 as part of the Independent Cinema Office’s BEST OF BRITISH programme. Not bad for a first film!

Coming February 2011. Grass issue 4 and the return of Hughes + Harris to Peg Powler gallery. Hughes is currently lobbing daily artbombs at me like he’s Lt-Col. Kilgore and I’m a clump of Vietnamese trees, so it’s on. Oh, it’s on.
This February, on the first floor of Stockton’s Arc, the splendid Mr Garrett and Miss Little of Peg Powler Gallery start curating an art space. Their first exhibition? ‘Words’ – a group show featuring; James Harris, David B (of ‘The Modern Lonely’), Michael Duckett, Amy Williams, AJ Garrett, Elle Green. Paintings by Ex-Pink Grease- Stuart Faulkner plus a solo show by: Alyson Agar. The Peg Powler Permanent Collection will be displayed from February to April.
