This is just fucking heavy so check it out.

Happy Birthday

In July last year I decided that for a good friend of mine Oliver Brookes birthday I would get him something extra special, So i got an old board I had lying about and painted a canvas using some white emulsion, and painted on it using water colors which I can tell you wasn't very easy. I also did one for a friend another friend of mine Chris Hemsley, but some how from the distance from my bedroom and my front door managed to lose it, So apologies to him.

So it's a friday night, what else am I gonna be doing?

So yeah made some candle holders out of old bottles and cans that were in my room.

And drew a raven.

Following on from my previous post, I found some images from a session where I did some self portraits, to do these I started just using charcoal but eventually started using paints and pastels. To make these I just put the charcoal to the paper, closed my eyes, put my hand to my face and drew what I feel. Some turned out a lot better than others but I guess practice makes perfect hey. But yeah anyway here they are.

Homemade paintbrushes

Here I got into working using only my memories on the page. I had a session recentley which lead me to producing this, my tutor was teaching me to only use my memory of what I was drawing as soon as my brush hit the page. Well yeah this is what i ended up with. Hope you enjoy there a few i feel are better which I will up load soon.

Tote bags

So well i started a project very recently which involved creating an image with just using the word radio as inspiration, I decided to do a short lineof double sided tote bags of the designs i came up with. So yeah here we are my final design.


I thought i would add a few pictures i took of the whole process, just to show you how it was all done.

Tim Goodman

I had to pleasure to get involved with Tim Goodman's "Timblography" site very recently and received some very nice words about myself and my work from him, So I just wanted to spread to work about his work on here to show my appreciation to him by posting a link to his site.

To those who haven't seen his work (and I assume most have) you should really check it out for some really fantastic portraits and for an insight and documentation into the Clinic nights. Also check out "Humunga-Dunga" section, my personal favorite.

Today i received a little gift coming from Jessie Glasspool. A lovely little drawing of myself with a polar bear (long story).

So i thought i would return the favor by doing this portrait of her whilst she was thinking up ideas.

Staff christmas party inspired art.

So pretty much i got very bored during my staff christmas party, and ended up seeing if i could draw a portrait of Charles Manson using my memory and two different shaded blue crayons. This was the out come.

As a follow on from this I tried again when I home, copying it using an added green crayon.

And then using watercolours.
