Breaking Bad

I've been very lazy of late both doing new stuff and posting on here, so here's a drawing I did in Photoshop of Walt from Breaking Bad. I added the watercolour splashes to hint at the violence in the show and I also like the texture in the blue splash as it looks a bit like a chemical reaction. And of course he cooks blue crystals!
He has such a great face for drawing, great lines and full of character.

Moate Culture Night 2011

A big thank you to those from Tinderbox who contributed to the art and photography exhibition in Moate for Culture Night. A dead space under stone arches was opened up and provided a great venue for the day, although it was quite cold! The little Tinderbox table went down well with the public and added a micro dimension to the all the work you do. Cheers Jane, Emma, Esther, and Elida for posting everything down, I hope they return to your doorsteps in good nick. The photos may be seen here...

Here's hoping we'll do this again soon.

Pur-pose photography exhibition- I'm in it!

Hi everybody. I was really happy to be contacted to take part at this event in the George Bernard Shaw next Thursday. I'll have a framed work which will be alongside that of 13 other photographers. If any of you happen to be around I'd love to see you at the opening (from 7pm), or you could drop in another day, it's there till the 3rd of November, and tell me what you think. I'm very excited about it
