They say other peoples’ dreams are boring. But I would also suggest that they are also boring. Saying other peoples’ dreams are boring is boring. Not sure that entirely means we’ve come around to dreams being interesting again, but, well, er, this post is about a dream I had a while back.
I’d read a story on a news Web site about the Queen (that is, the Queen, Queen Elizabeth II) running out of money or something. Boo hoo. And I ended up dreaming about that and the way the BBC is always getting shit from the Daily fucking Mail about anything they feel they can stick the boot in about. So in the dream, the Queen was given a chat show on BBC One, to, y’know, earn her keep. In my dream, she was interviewing famous British people. And the first interview was with Robert Smith. Him out of the Cure.
Here’s a drawing.
So, as I mentioned, I had an exhibition at the Euphoric Trumps in London. Here’s some photos.
As well as the printed stuff, I drew with a marker on glass:

I’ve been slack at this blogging lark. And I seem to remember recently saying I’d be better at doing stuff here in a timely manner. Well, reader, I done failed on that one, big time. I had an exhibition in London at the Coningsby Gallery. The show was called Euphoric Trumps because I like those words. While I blasted Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook with updates, I totally forgot to write about it here. I’m annoyed with myself for that.
Anyway, it was a bunch of prints, basically. And some marker pen drawings on glass. And there are limited edition, super high quality prints available (seriously, the paper and ink used is magnificent). You can see the stuff that’s available here: https://www.coningsbygallery.com/shop/artist/Craig+Robinson
If you a fan of baseball, and like the stuff I do about baseball, you may be interested to know that I recently began contributing to FanGraphs. Specifically, for NotGraphs, the less serious site of the site. I’m gonna be doing something every week, on a Wednesday. I’ve done a handful of them so far, including drawings of baseball stadiums done with my weaker right hand. All the drawings I did for NotGraphs are line drawings, but here’s a coloured-in version of the Dodger Stadium drawing. My stuff can be found here:
It’s just a pub, of course, but for me, and I imagine, for plenty of people I know from Lincoln, this pub was more than just a pub. Back in the day, when you were likely to get beaten up for not wearing a white shirt and hair gel and for liking “weird music,” to have a pub like the Brewer in a small shitty town like Lincoln was fantastic. I had a few pints in there when I was back. They still had the Pixies on the jukebox, and the tables and upholstery hasn’t changed. I love that place and always will.
