Not long to wait now! In fact its less than a week before No Bounds "Two" as I've dubbed it lands on our preverbial doorstep here in Sheffield. The first event, which ran in June, was evidently just a "Launch Party" according to the brains behind the event, Liam O'Shea. According to the officail blurb - "No Bounds Festival in its inaugural year will be a unique weekend of music, art, technology...

lvg 4th Jul 2017 No Bounds - Liz von Graevenitz

Creating art isn’t supposed to be easy, is it? If it was we’d all be artists!   In todays modern arena, a time dominated by the internet, social media and “quick fixes” there's something very reassuring about watching someone create something from scratch, using only their hands, basic materials and a spark of an idea.  It’s refreshing to watch techniques like stretching a...

Ste McClure 21st Jun 2017 The UK's hardest route - Rainman 9b

Huge congratulations to my good friend Ste McClure for sending his long term project "Rainman" at Malham Cove, here in the uk. For those of you that aren't familiar with Ste's epic, against all the odds, stuggle to climb this route, here is a little "light" reading on the subject.

Kodo 2 2005 19th Jun 2017 Just a Dog

      From time to time, people tell me, “lighten up, it’s just a dog”    Or   “thats a lot of money to spend on just a dog” They don’t understand the distance travelled, the time spent.   Some of my proudest moments have come about with “Just a dog” Many hours have passed and my only company was “Just a dog” but I didn’t once feel slighted.   ...

Ben 30th Nov 2016 Ben Moon workbook

When I used to be a climber, as opposed to someone who spends a lot of time capturing climbing images, I'd bump into Ben Moon everywhere. First on the limestone crags of the Ormes, in North Wales. Then on the cliffs of Raven Tor in the Peak District and even on the steep crags of Boux in France, he was everywhere! Ben Moon has been a bit of a legend in climbing circles ever since he bolted and...

LVG Finished 27th Nov 2016 Liz Von Graevenitz

LVG from Tim Glasby on Vimeo. Liz Von Graevenitz, or LVG as I like to affectionately call her, is an artist from Sheffield, in the UK. I first encountered Liz lying on a cold floor underneath an elephant in a huge warehouse. She, not me, was under the elephant you understand! She was painting white stripes around its legs and trunk, but that’s an altogether different story. A story that...

NAngel of the North B W 12th Jun 2016 A day and night in the County

I've said it before on here, and I'll say it again "I love Northumberland" for me at any rate, it's one of the most evocitive places in the UK, a place that is very dear to my heart and will always be home to some very special memories. The photo (above) of the Angel of the North isn't really in Northumberland, in fact it's just this side of Newcastle (Sheffield Side) but it's like a gateway to...
