..now, for all of this

so i finally got the record picture done after ages, and here is some of the other shit i've got hanging around to finish. who knows how or when (i'm very busy lately preparing to be a husband. i think i mentioned). i don't have time to do all these pictures but i constantly have the itch to draw new things, i wish there were 100 hours in a day xo

i put that needle on just to make a sound......



i've been wanting to finish this fucker for so long but was arguing with myself as to how i should... and now i have! i love records so this one's for them.
when i was fifteen to about eighteen (and living at home) i'd take my weekly pay every Friday and spend it all on stacks of cds. i wish i'd spent it all on records, my collection would be epic. like, High Fidelity epic.
i have my records next to my desk to act as a constant source of illumination. anyways, i'm stoked on this, hope you are too! xo

There Was An Old Lady Who Lived In A Shoe


here's what i'm doing at the moment... it's for a charity auction the Clutter gang are arranging where each artist involved has to pick a nursery rhyme or fairy tale to recreate in their own way, and i picked There Was An Old Lady Who Lived In A Shoe. i thought it'd be an interesting one to draw, the image is one we all know and love.... little did i know it happens to be the shittest nursery rhyme ever.......

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children, she didn't know what to do;
She gave them some broth without any bread;
Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

it doesn't make sense and there is no point to it, although i did have the image of a Jeremy Kyle take on the poem; a young chav beating her 20 kids, living in a giant Reebok Classic (and that's the road i would have gone down had i not already started with the pictures above). as always, i'll keep you posted with the progress. xo

CLUTTER!

hey! check out www.entertheclutter.com and enlist yourself in the Clutter fan club.
Clutter is a four person Brighton-based art collective consisting of Penny Macleod, Daniel Gruitt, Edward Bentley and Amy Strike, who are dedicated to promoting new and upcoming local artists (including myself).
Every Saturday at the famous ‘Upper Gardener Street Market’ situated in the heart of the North Laines, the guys and girls run a vibrant, well established stall selling their featured artists' work, and the rest of the week they are working non-stop at the JAG Open Studios on the seafront.
the Clutter team have such a generous grasp of the DIY ethic and ferocious work rate, it's inspiring to witness, and i can't wait for the summer when floods and floods of people visiting the seaside will see for themselves.

POINTLESS RHINO!

i spent a lovely, rainy sunday afternoon drawing with my brother Paul Lewis today, and thought i'd let you know that his wonderful website www.pointlessrhino.com has just been bombarded with updates, including his weekly drawings for two columns in Latest 7 magazine. all of it's very awesome and reminds me very much of ye olde Cartoon Network classic style of drawing.
paul paul i love paul.
paul paul i love paul.
