this is a general idea of how i'd like this piece to look when it's done, i'm painting the broken shards right now. i imagine it all being presented on a paving slab to fit all the bottles crowded round the broken bottle in the middle, in a puddle of red paint, rather than a piece of red paper. it may take a while to find what i'm looking for, but there's nothing in the pipelines at the moment so i guess there's no rush. cool though, huh? xo

a few years back i did a punk/hc band called Raise The White Flag with some friends of mine; Salad Sam, Turkey Sub, and the illustrious Demo Dan. it was the best of times, it was the worst of times (worst is an exaggeration, it was very very fun). i thought i'd dig up a few scraps from the archives, give people an insight in to how my drawing has progressed (or declined, if you prefer what you see here, over the years) and give you all a peek at my young body before i started drinking and getting fat. something for everyone. the flyers were picked at random, and the photos were picked to print that mental image of a young, energetic version of me into peoples' minds, rather than the lazy truth.

i'm adding colour at the moment. the photos, that are cut into strips on the floor, are photos of my other pictures. following the fun i had doing the Bike Ride picture, i'm considering doing a 'zine, hopefully followed by a second and third and fourth, all with the same idea, using different themes. hopefully anyway, i'll keep you posted xo
