Hot Again

Well this aft the sun has really come out and the temperatures have soared once again. flicking through the papers on my lunch its been scorching over the last few days. Plenty of photos from Britain's beaches documenting the evidence.

Bitten & Pressed

From July the 17th to 4th of September 2010 at the Aberystwyth Arts centre check "Bitten &  Pressed" an exhibition exploring the diversity of contemporary printmaking from the Uk, France and Germany. Artists include Me, Roman Klonek, Ann lewis, Diane Murphy, Mark Peronnet, John Breaky, Jake Blanchard and more. Go see some of my prints next month. Oh on a different note when I finally settle down if and when; remind me to play "Bermuda Triangle" by Barry Manilow when about to embark on the honeymoon.

Last Night

It was a fun enjoyable evening at Bungalows and Bears in Sheffield last night. I met some great young taltented people. I was road testing some posca pens that I've not used before, and I was drawing live in front of people summet I've never done before. If I looked nervous I was didn't want to make a mistake. Many thanks for the invite to take part in an enjoyable evening. After some really hot weather last night it was great to feel some rain and smell that great aroma after its been hot when it rains.

Tote Bag

I've been sent from Georgina Potier in London some photos of herself making use of one of my tote bags. Sounds like Georgina makes use a lot of that trusty little tote bag. Good to see someone making use of it rather than a carrier bag.

I think after tonight I'll be a little lost with my telly schedule. Junior Apprentice comes to an end with the final tonight we have also had the last episode of Luther this week. Thank goodness for that narrator on "Come Dine With Me". But there are a few gaps in my telly schedule none the less. There is the World Cup though I guess....

I've had this cheeky little doodle in one of my books for a while. Its doesn't look much I know but It was a doodle done in a series thinking about old times as a kid and young adult. Reet I need a brew.


Been drawing lots of theatrical characters today, its been raining outside the kettle has been on a fair bit par for the course when there is a slight chill. Looking forward to tonights episode of Luther;  last weeks episode really picked up after a couple of dodgy episodes. Its just good british cop drama without the donut's and coffee and dodgy steakouts. Reet brew time indeed.

Monday, 7 June 2010


I've been busy all weekend no doubt about it. I've been drawing lots of sporty things today. Oh and this above. Last night I was reading some more Asterix I've been enjoying revisiting those books, I reckon I could do with some of that magic potion though or second best a brew.

I did earlier sort my designer stubble out perhaps when I'm in my 70s I'll rock some eccentric moustache for when I'm rocking the tea rooms of Britain.

Summer Wine

Well readers the sun has shone in Donny once more, I've totally lost track of the time today sat on my computer drawing an assortment of characters. I do know they are axing Last of the Summer Wine after completing one more series. I do know I need a brew. I do know I fancy reading another Asterix book for a laugh.
