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.

face
amended





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).

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

lining out 2006
collaboration
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)

sketches







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.
