New Website Up and Running!

The new site is up, a little cleaner, a little easier, more work, more . . . pizazz?  Anyway, have a look - I'm still in sort of a beta testing period.  So there maybe some small changes yet to be done, but it feels good to have it up and working.

New Website Coming Soon!

Been concocting a new site for the last week or two, and it's about ready for the unveiling!   Troubleshooting now, and doing the last little bit of finagling, but after a long hiatus there will be some new material.  For those of you who follow this blog, most of the work will be no surprise - but it promises to be a much faster and more elegant solution to the ye olde portfolio site, and be a lot easier to get around.

Tinker Tailor Portraits

Watched "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" last weekend - great movie.  Love the lo-fi cold war stuff.   I also loved seeing a lot of great British faces.  Pictured are Gary Oldman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong,
Cirian Hinds, Colin Firth and Toby Jones.

At Last!!

"Cancer", 22 x 22
gouache on paper
So I finally have a good scan of "Cancer", a piece I did a few months ago for the "One Hour of TV a Week" show.  I knew I wanted to do piece about cancer - there's been a lot of it in my family, as in most, but it took me a while to figure something out.  I definitely wanted a feeling of a whimsical sadness- and something that was a bit medical but not too trite.  Eventually I thought of a tree house - something made of itself, it's own material, but different - and then found some nice medical illos to work from to get the heart/lung interaction right.  Turned out to be a little trickier than I thought.
