Me and my panel got into the local Borders paper, the Southern Reporter! Cracking title don't you think?

Border Village on the Lost Loch

The info panel I created for Morebattle has now been installed in the heart of the village!

Umbrella Objective

A while back I decorated this gigantic white golf umbrella as part of Libby Walker's Umbrella Objective, a project which coincided with a street festival in the West End of Glasgow. It was lots of fun decorating this, and a delight to see the vastly different approaches of the 17 other artists involved. Take at look at the other umbrellas here.

Bookcovers

Recently started a new part-time job here in Paris designing e-book covers for Feedbooks.







The covers are all for free downloadable books (works in the public domain), which means lots of classics - I've just worked through the whole of Jane Austen and Shakespeare's back catalogues among others, and I must say it's lots of fun!

Hello! Introducing my new website, replete with new projects and unseen images. Less personalized in its design than before, but also a hell of a lot easier to update! If my old site comes up when you click on the link, just refresh the page and the new one should appear!

Sadomasochism for Accountants

A while ago now I did this book cover for Edinburgh-based writer Rosy Barnes' e-book, intriguingly titled Sadomasochism for Accountants. Not, as you might think, an instructional manual, but rather a comic novel set in and around the world of a fetish club... and full of quirky and dubious characters portrayed with affection! Lots of fun to illustrate and now available to buy here on Amazon.
UPDATE: Sadomasochism for Accountants is currently the number one bestselling Kindle book in comedy!! Congratulations Rosy!

Morebattle Panel


In other news, although I'm far from home, I'm also working on a information panel that is going to go in the village of Morebattle, where my parents live... to inform the general populace and walkers who might be passing through of the various points of interest in that neck of the woods! Here are some initial images from that... Finished board to follow soon I hope!

Recent Drawing on Public Transport




Lately I've been drawing quite a lot on the metro and the bus... it passes the time magnificently and the motion forces me to loosen up and stop drawing in such an uptight way! No wait, that top one was drawn on the sofa actually! And the two coloured ones are very much experiments in coloured pencil and gouache, with a mind to fashion illustration...evidently not drawn on a bus.
