Todays guardian

Its wierd that that the one before this was love related too, not sure why these things come about like this. this is now the 15th illustration I've done for the guardian, and I must say I do like this one.

100 drawings

Well this is what started my current mamath mission of 100 paintings, 100 drawings, the show was a huge success and though people loved the drawings it was the fact that I'd produced so many that gave it the wow factor. each drawing was 10cm wide and 15cm tall and were presented in clear plastic with an oversized mount. on a side note 100 unframed drawings is a pitch to display and took up alot more space than I had thought.

My piece in last Saturday's guardian..

It's all about the love ...

a sneeky peek

this is the first painting for my forthcoming exhibition in Febuary, this is the first of 100 paints, I've since done 20 so I'm doing ok so far, I just have to stay focused :D

A Quick update

well, things have been very busy over the last month or so, I had some work in an exhibition at ronaldsway airport on the Isle of Man, I've completed the bulk of the work on the zombie book with Yee (that was a good two months of working on nothing else but that). I'll post some stuff from that very soon.
The Sayle gallery (where a lot of my work appears) has closed for the summer getting ready for its big reopening in its new larger premises in the fall, I've just started work on illustrations for a music book with the Manx heritage foundation. I'm still producing illustrations for the guardian weekend magazine, the next one is in on the 19th so look out for that one.
and as a follow up to my "100 drawings" exhibition, I've just completed painting no. 1o for an exhibition of 100 paintings in feb 09 at the Sayle gallery. so yeah its all mad at the moment.
oh and if life wasn't complicated enough, I've just moved house.
