Live Painting, Chorlton

A piece I did today at the Future Savings event in Chorlton (alongside Julian Kimmings and Wil Hesketh). To be auctioned in aid of Cancer Research next month. Phew, it was hot!

I love Hellboy. Mignola's artwork is absolutely sublime. I last had a go at drawing Hellboy years ago for a charity Christmas card to be sold at a comics convention (Bristol, I think). Been flicking through my Hellboy books again this week and thought I'd have another go.

Pencil Trees

Here's a drawing I've done recently for a book put together by one of my old art college lecturers, John Holder. It's a book extolling the virtues of Good Old Drawing. They already have contributions from Ronald Searle, Quentin Blake and Roger Law, amongst others, so it was quite an intimidating task. Should be a great book. I'll post more details when I have them.

Draw Serge!

I've started a blog called "Draw Serge!" dedicated to drawings (or any visual interpretation) of the French musical genius, Serge Gainsbourg. All contributions welcome. Merci!

Frankie, Do You Remember Me?

Here's my contribution to Paul Cooper's "A Patchwork of Flesh" project. HIs aim is to amass as many portraits of Frankenstein's monster in as many different styles as possible for an ongoing art project and future exhibition. I couldn't resist. This has the distinction of being both the smallest finished piece I've ever produced (a teeny 2.5 by 3.5 inches) and the first painting I've done for years. Go on, your turn now.

Bret & Jemaine

Flight of the Conchords back on TV screens in the UK tomorrow night. Here's a drawing to celebrate (well, it's either the Conchords or Kenny Everett and a young Walter Matthau).
