in the summer i produced some narrative pencil drawings for 'inbetween' exhibition with peepshow (see earlier post). im trying to translate those drawings into screen prints by redrawing them in ink and changing the marks to suit the medium . hopefully the prints wont be a carbon copy of the originals but offer something different. this is just work in progress but more to come in the new year
two christmas sales coming up where you can buy lots of goodies from everyone at peepshow and a whole host of talented folk. The first sale is saturday 28th november at The Crypt of St Pancras Church, Euston rd, London, NW1 28A from 11-6pm.
The second sale is on saturday 12th december at the Tab Centre behind Shoreditch Tabennacle church, 3 Godfrey Place,London,E27 NT

often drawing to record, work something out, these were created with the focus being on the act of drawing itself.
-when each mark is a recording of a reaction,
-when you see yourself in the drawing,
-observation as a catalyst for something imagined.
-takes time before any discovery made,
-alot of bad academic drawings in the process before getting anywhere interesting

i keep different sketchooks for different reasons and rarely show then as they feel private but perhaps its good to have some distance. these images are from one i keep on my desk at home to create disposable drawings at the end of the day.often the drawings are light and seem meaningless but have some joy. lately these drawings are becoming more informative than intended. void of reference and intent but always offering a spark.that is their worth

two christmas cards just going to print. The cards show two epic journeys undertaken in order to get a precious , if slightly underwhelming gift of a twig or a rock. these will be on sale at some christmas sales soon. more details to come.
been thinking about print more and more which is causing my drawings to be produced with even less refinement, with a lack of weight or importance to them. i can see the mistakes or how i could redraw, add, develop but for now im happy to actually avoid that and let them not be over worked.
