Tower Bridge

December 14th, 2012

Earlier in the week, I was passing Tower Bridge. It was absolutely freezing! I wish I had worn my woolly socks.

New drawings

December 10th, 2012

Had a great time at the opening of Pastorale Christmas exhibition on Saturday. Thanks to everyone who made it. The show also runs next Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th December so please do stop by if you can.

I’ve been sorting through a few recent drawings and I’ve included them on my website. I did this small pastel and ink drawing when I last visited Eastbourne in the Summer. Please take a look

Sports Bar print

December 4th, 2012

I’ve just proofed a new Boston sports bar linocut print. I’ve been playing around with colours. Originally I printed the basket ball court (on the TV) green as the Boston Celtics were playing on a green court when I did my sketch. However it appeared to confuse friends as you associate football with a green pitch and they’re playing basket ball! Anyway I’m sticking with orange . . .
