Tributes

Decided to create a couple of tribute paintings this weekend. Terribly sad that this week has both David Bowie and Alan Rickman have passed away, both greats that were inspirational for many art forms.

As you can see I chose to paint Bowie’s Aladdin Sane/Ziggy Stardust and Alan Rickman as Alexander Dane/ Dr. Lazarus (from Galaxy Quest- one of my favourites)

Both pieces are watercolour, acrylic ink and ink pen on paper.

BB-8 Sketchbook Sketches

BB-8 Sketches

Planning and sketches in my sketchbook for a little BB-8 piece that I’ve wanted to do since I saw The Force Awakens last month.

Yes I have terrible handwriting when I write ideas down quickly.

International Postcard Show 2016

1] Sightseeing, mixed media postcard, 6 x 4 inches

2] Together, mixed media postcard, 6 x 4 inches

Two postcards I sent off to Nottingham for Surface Gallery’s International Postcard Show. Both postcards have a base of paper ephemera- a mixture of train tickets and car park ticket stubs with acrylic ink, watercolour and ink pens. Together has found vintage anatomy images- the heart in the middle has also been cut apart and hand stitched together with black thread.

Will be nice to start off this year with an exhibition with artists from around the world.

Recent Sketchbook Sketches

sketch 3

A couple of sketches from my small A6 sketchbook from the past 2 weeks. I’m trying to make myself draw more while I’m out of my workspace/studio.

I should probably focus more on quick gesture drawings of people walking past for some variety but I’m always drawn towards unusual architectural spaces and objects
