Upcoming show alert

Together with Lucy MacLeod (illustrator and bacon roll expert) I am hanging a collection of work in Edinburgh's The Outhouse (opening 14th April, coming down 20th May). If you're in Auld Reekie during that time have a look. Don't worry, The Outhouse also sells alcohol.

totally tokyo

OK, so the keyboard is a crime against your eyes, I know, it was the only wireless one they had but that aside I now have a laptop and large monitor set up and a new scanner. Now all I have to do is do some decent work to justify it.

New Scanner

Got a new scanner today. It deals with small marks and textures well.
One of these, as if you're in the slightest bit bothered.

Maybe I need to get back into playing guitar.

These face drawings are test ideas for an exhibition I am taking part in next month and this one is an amended version of one posted a few days ago. I think I like this one better (at the moment, but I'm as fickle as hell).

- a question of fitness

Mountain bike magazine, Singletrack, have just launched their re-designed magazine.
This is in it.

face (again)


lining out 2006
with lucy macleod

Back in 2006 I was contacted by a certain Lucy MacLeod with regard to taking part in an exhibition of Scottish illustrators. It was her brain child, a call to action, an attempt to form a cohesive creative community north of the border. Me and Lucy never actually met then. Strange how things pan out.
(Disclaimer - That god awful piece of work on the bottom left is/was mine and luckily wasn't used in the shows)

Mainly drawings of Lucy, a self portrait and some boats. Oh, and a drawing of me done by Lucy. It's the one that actually looks like it's subject.
