These Eyes

I like how my day job allows me catch up on drawing.









Crazy rock 'n' roll eagle came out of listening to Neil Young's Danger Bird. I think Zuma is, just perhaps, my favourite Neil Young and Crazy Horse album.

The one with the muppet-like kids is called, BFF4EVA, a dedication to all my pals.

I think I will call the blustery landscape, Eyes of the Storm.

Homerton Artist Group




I finished designing a flyer last week for the Homerton Artist Group's premiere show. The central theme is home and I couldn't help inserting a home town reference by drawing a little Van-Spesh for the top corner there. Sadie Edginton, one of two hardworking ladies organizing the group meetings and exhibit, has kindly offered her house as the exhibition space. Drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture will be featured. If you're in London, please swing by!

Down By the River...

More canal drawings.








This first one is inspired by one of my favourite works, The Large Turf by Dürer.

Annette Messager



I don't know how Annette Messager dodged my radar for so long, but her work is amazing. She is one of those artists who is a true interdisciplinary genius. Her retrospective is featured at the Hayward Gallery on the Southbank until May 25th, and I urge anyone who is visiting London to see it. It's a real treat. Work exhibited includes hundreds of drawings, sculpture, and lots of really humorous kinetic installations. Keep your eye out on the brown sac of a bear being dragged around in circles. Made me laugh.

Here's a link to the Guardian where there are nice images of the show and an interview with the artist.
