Doing something Funny

Morning! As its Red Nose day is in a weeks time, I am doing something funny.

50% of all sales in the shop goes to Red Nose Day up til end of day on 18 March. Not that hilarious but telling jokes isn't really my forte, i can do a sketch though.

So get your fix of the Illustrated Dictionary Project here.
Clara (Original Drawing 121 x 191 mm £60)

The last Shock Awakening Screen print is in the shop (60 cm x 80 cm, Number 6 of an edition of 40, £165), And also the very last couple of Crime Scene Screen prints (100.5 cm x 70.5 cm, edition of 45, £245) Buy anything in the shop before 18 March and 50% will go to Red Nose Day so you can feel all warm and glowy from having supported the brilliant Comic Relief, jolly nice.

Have a funny weekend y'all

The illustrated dictionary project is back on

After a mega long gap while I was working on the Circus series, I'm happily back to the drawing board. Nothing like quiet time with just a pencil and a bit of chalk to entertain. I'm loving my new 'inktense' pencils, they are like compressed charcoal but in a pencil, and it becomes like indian ink when abit of water is added. Pretty lovely. The thing i disliked about normal pencils is the shiny colour of lead, it was a real battle with this drawing project, as that sheen was bit distracting, so now armed with my 'inktense' doddlers I have the tools to carry on........

Below is a sketch of Marion Davies using these lushly dark pencils in Bark and Ink Black.

This is a sketch of Clara Bow, with 'Boheme' on the Dictionary page, so I called this one La Boheme, one of my favourite operas. I guess Clara was a kind of bohemian, all that lolling about in velvet and reclining on chaise longues, makes me want to wear satin house robes and drink nothing but gin fizz.

And a portrait of Polish actress Pola Negri. While drawing this one I obsessed over the camel and camel keeper behind the left eye, so I called her 'East'.

I'm trying to add new drawings weekly, as each sketch is really useful prep for the next solo show in London (in Mauger Modern, May), So check back to keep tabs on my progress, hopefully I'll start on the rest of the Es soon, ah that'll be nice, 5 letters down
