Two more cut-out collagey things from the series 'all is ash and sorrow'. It concerns itself with pyromania and the shitty things people do in the name of 'love'. But you'd probably need to see all nine for that to be clear. And it still wouldn't be.

I'm attempting to exhibit the full nine pieces, hence me not uploading them all, but, once that idea fails, I'll probably put them out as a zine or something.

Let's not mess around, I had a whole lot of roses that I needed to use for stuff. Plus I'm messing about with gouache trying to make it work as watercolour instead of using it for flat colour. So here are some results of that.

This is the cover of the wonderful and talented poet Sarah Dawson's forthcoming poetry ebook. I drew her some sea creatures and it was fun. Now go to her blog.

This was a pug that I drew for my friend, which has proved very popular so here it is.

It's probably a good idea, if I can call it such, to follow me on flickr, since I actually update that pretty frequently, but not so much this.

Other things what I have been doing

So I'm doing a series of large scale thingies using gouache and cutting-bits-out-so-you-can-see-the-flourescent-stuff-I-put-underneath. It is tentatively titled 'All is ash and sorrow: scenes from my email inbox' and is to do with fire. Not that you can tell.

You will note that my skills when it comes to photographing my work have not improved. Nor, if I were honest, have I tried any harder.

somme liked it hot

I did/have a spoken word act, 'Somme Like It Hot (or how I learnt to pack up my troubles and love the war)', that I performed in Preston this Summer as part of their Tringe festival. It meant that drawing was on the backburner for a bit. This in no way justifies not updating for three months, but what can I say? I like the drawing stuff, I like the uploading stuff a lot less. The spoken word piece had an illustrated slideshow, a few of which are shown here. Without context they mean nothing, but take my word for it when I say that, with commentary, this shit is HILARIOUS.
