Flatlands

The exhibition opened last Saturday and the private view was very well attended. There has been a steady flow of visitors all this week and some lovely comments in the visitors book! But rather than waffle on about it, I’ll let the artwork speak for itself… It has been an excellent experience and I am […]

Exhibition Preparation

With the ‘Flatlands’ exhibition opening on Saturday, its been all hands to the pumps, planning, prepping and hanging at Greyfiars Artspace this week, with a little more to do tomorrow. The vinyl lettering for the window was installed yesterday and looking good against the reflection of the Greyfriars Tower. There has been much measuring, levelling, considering and […]

Announcement

Ladies and Gentlemen of the internet, and especially those in the East Anglian area of Britain, you are cordially invited to: I am honoured to be exhibiting some of my work amongst well established artists at this fine independent gallery in King’s Lynn in a couple of weeks time. All the works are inspired by […]

On reading books

For the first few years of blogging I posted up a monthly list of the books I had read and a playlist of music that had formed the soundtrack to each month, but eventually stopped. To some, that would indicate that I have given up reading and adopted a more monkish silent order, but nothing could […]

Very Disappointed

The incredible Black Slipper have recently released a follow up EP to the critically acclaimed (by me) debut I wrote about in February. Just like their first release Black Slipper are in a Tangle, Black Slipper are Very Disappointed is a seamless companion piece – I like to think of it as ‘Side 2’ as […]

It’s on the cards

Playing cards are often overlooked for their graphic qualities, probably because of the familiarity and repetition of symbols and numbers. Granted, not all sets of playing cards are graphically distinctive and so they all tend be much of a muchness. I’ve recently acquired a few packs of cards, all of varying vintage, and enjoyed examining their […]

Here come the snakes…

I have recently come into the possession of a well-used part of that old favourite board game Snakes and Ladders and thought I would share its wonderful illustrations and moral intention with you fine people. As far as I can ascertain, it dates from anywhere between 1890 – 1914 and has been clearly enjoyed by several generations! […]

The world is all gates*

I’ve been working on another craft beer project recently, and am able to share a few images of work in progress with you… The South Gates in King’s Lynn stands over the main route into the town (to the delight and frustration of visitors and motorists!) and dates way back to the 14th century. The building is actually […]

Eastern Promise

I headed out to Comer with my youngest daughter Lower Case on Saturday on what turned out to be a day that really promised that Spring was in the air! We took a bunch of photos for here GCSE project, but I snapped a few shots too and I thought I would share them with […]

Money for old rope…

I’ve just finished an illustration for an new craft beer and thought I’d share it with you. I can’t tell you anything about the brand just yet, but hope to share it with you eventually. The design called for a illustration of a nautical style knot – specifically, a reef (or square) knot with the […]
