Songs for Lovers and the Broken Hearted

I was recently invited to illustrate some song lyrics of my choice to be displayed as part of Cultshare’s touring exhibition which launched this Saturday night (indeed, Valentine’s night. Hence the title) at Beerwolf in Falmouth. The show can be seen for the next two weeks at Howl in Penryn before it heads to Strong Adolfo’s via Plymouth College of Art’s exhibition space.

I illustrated “Love is Like a Bottle of Gin” by The Magnetic Fields. By “illustrate” I mean I took the title and wandered off from the lyrics somewhat but nobody has told me off yet…

I am in excellent company, check out http://www.cultshare.co.uk to see the other illustrations.

I’m back…

Instead of waffling about what I did on my holidays and the months since I am going to furnish this post with a bunch of photos documenting recent creative endeavours of varying purpose, significance and competence.

A sculptor took me on a hike to collect soapstone from a remote valley. I used a swiss army knife to make this "Pikorua" (Maori symbol for the union of two people) for my newly engaged sister.

Hei konā

I’m off for a little while on foreign adventures. So apologies to my overwhelming legions of admirers but you’ll not be hearing from me for a while. Come next year I’ll be an artist again. A proper one. This time for sure…

What I have been doing while this blog languished

Between making new work for an upcoming exhibition at The Poly in Falmouth, the odd little commission and, er, going on holiday, I contributed a short comic to a zine by Falmouth illustrators for this: http://bristolcomicandzinefair.wordpress.com/

…which is on today so make haste all Bristolians!

Zine coverI did a little 2-page thing about a mermaid. It ends badly.
