Quick sketch…

scribbled down by . file under Illustration,Personal

I have a project I’m working on at the moment where I feel some illustrations would bring more to the project than stock photos would. They need to be quite quick to do and relatively simple. So I’ve been trying a few sketches in ink with a quick water colour wash. I think it may work…

bit worried these are getting a bit arty now. The black and white probably doesn’t help.

Number 21 in the series of occasional roadside photos. This sign is gradually distancing itself from that mile as its slowly falls over, creating an odd perspective as you drive past.

FRL Print

scribbled down by . file under Illustration,Links,Personal

I offered a prize for a charity auction a couple of months back which then developed into a short print run of the eventual prize artwork. The artwork/print was won for the organiser of the Friends Round London event, in which a bunch of MG owners drive the circumference of London’s outer ring road on a cold midwinters night with their cars rooves down – its really rather fun, honest.

There are still a couple of the limited run of 50 prints available, and while I can’t imagine anyone who wasn’t there wanting one, if you do then please drop me an email – they are £15 inc p&p and all money goes to the events charity.

number 20 in the ongoing series of roadside photos. The Kidderminster road has had six months of seeming pointless traffic lights, however while sat in them last month I did manage to take this photo which nearly makes up for the hour or so its cost me so far. #highwaysmywayworcs indeed.

scribbled down by . file under Illustration,Music,Projects

From the number of spam comments I’ve just had to delete I’ve clearly been letting things slide here so here is a quick catch up…

heres a couple of CDs which arrived in the post last week which I was lucky enough to be asked to illustrate the cover artwork for.

The illustrations been lurking in the portfolio for a while now but the CDs has only just been released. Lovely people to work for and please do go check out their website.

Roadside 10-3-13

scribbled down by . file under Roadside

number 19 in the ongoing series of roadside photos. So for some daft reason I found myself driving up to the summit of Titterstone Clee on one of the coldest March days for quite a while. In fact I can honestly say it was the coldest I have ever been here in the UK. I don’t think the outside temperature was that cold, yes the puddles on the increasingly dilapidated car park were freezing up, but I think it was the wind chill that caused me to loose feeling in my hands after taking my gloves off to take a couple of photos.

You can’t really see the scale in this photo, taken from the car parking area, but it really much bigger than it looks, much colder too.

More shivering than tittering at Titterstone Clee

Heres another photo of the moody approach taken automatically by the in-car camera too. Its quite nice there in summer though, I’d suggest you wait until then if you fancy visiting.
