Looking Forward ---->

The Price of Fish: Prospection. Oil on canvas, 50cm x 60cm.

Prospection, the latest in the 'Price of Fish' series. It's going to be available in the Found Gallery, Dunbar, along with a companion piece 'KY, Grey & Green,' which is titled but just lacking some finishing touches.

I can't recommend the Found gallery enough, not just because they have the pleasing habit of selling my work and asking for more, but because of the beautiful work on display. Go in for a look if you're in or near Dunbar.

Update: it's now in the Found Gallery. The FOUND GALLERY, Dunbar High Street. Ideal Christmas present for the ferrugipiscophile in your life.

Rosetta Stone: A Piece of Cake.

I've had Rosetta in my head ever since she leaped in there fully formed with her name when I was lying in bed one Christmas and I sketched her out. I've even scripted and started a full graphic novel version of her story, but become increasingly dissatisfied with the quality of the drawing.

I lifted a couple of frames (the first two scene-setting panels) from that for this, a sort of short introduction to the world of Rosetta Stone. 

Originally it was an entry for the Eagle Initiative competition but that was called off because not enough people entered. I took the opportunity to redraw some panels (terrible faces), re-do the lettering and speech bubbles, add an extra page (more fighting, essentially) and expand the big set-piece ending panels.

Anyway; Rosetta Stone.

(If you right click and open in a new tab it's a lot easier to read...)

Page one of a six-page strip I drew up from a script by Matthew Craig, for Strip Magazine's 'Spotlight' competition. (We didn't get in.) Small tribute to 'The Right Stuff' in the bottom left hand panel, there.

The rest of it is posted up on my website here.

A Bit Fruity.

New painting, a still life. Oil on canvas.

I do like doing still lives, they're soothing.
