Come on in, have a look around. Stay awhile. I wish I could offer you some digital coffee, but though the technology’s amazing, it’s not quite there yet.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the brand, spanking new website, as designed by that wizard of the interwebs, Benjamin Rush. (Ben is also my oldest boy, is living in Scotland, and in his spare time works at the Glasgow School of Art helping budding artists to blossom.)

This new site is so very new, we’ve only just announced it and you’re among the  first to try out all the new bells and whistles. Now, we’ve poked and prodded and tweaked and tickled, and we THINK we’ve gotten all the bugs out, but if you should find something that doesn’t work just right, or something that’s hard to figure out, please let us know by getting in touch. Much appreciated!

So have at it. Enjoy yourself, feel free to avail yourself of the fabulous merchandise in the store, and if you find yourself at one of my shows please do let me know what you think of all this!


Very best regards,


Tom Rush
