The other day was 'first thursday', which is when loads of galleries on Vyner Street in East London are open for private views. Our friend Tim Stevens had an exhibition with his paintings in his studio. We had been talking for ages about doing a pop up cocktail bar, so we entertained to crowds by serving cocktails from our black cab Jeeves parked in the yard.

We themed the cocktails to Tim's paintings, which are all about coast lines and rivers. They were all really good, but the winner was definitely the Thames.

I made a little menu with some illustrations to put up and hand out as flyers.

Tim also made his own beer for the private view, and I drew some labels for the bottles.

Here we are serving our cocktails from Jeeves the Black Cab, or Jeeves the Cocktail Cab as he was for the evening. We found some great navy army dresses in a great army surplus shop in my hometown of Umeå, Sweden, and thought they would do well for the occasion.
