– it’s a comment on the fashion industry’s use of models… ink and tea on paper 76 x 56cm
Great trip down to the south Coast today to see Dan @Ink_d gallery – they are between shows at the moment and preparing for UK renegade potter and leading anarchist Carrie Reichardt representing the Great British Empire as ‘Cruel Britannia’ through her unique anarchic vision. Still the gallery looks great even in its interim period and well worth a visit for the range of artwork on display. I had made the trip to talk through some of the newest pieces I had produced and left a couple there with them.. Not sure when they will surface in the gallery but I love what they do there and the range of other artists they represent. I was also signing the piece ‘protection’ which had recently sold and leaving some small postcard pieces – little curio’s which based around ink spills. . . .
Tomorrow I’ll be heading to Rich Mix Arts and Cultural centre on bethnal green road with Showcase London to display some of my new works. There will be hand drawn original postcard pieces from £10, large drawings on display, a couple of lightboxes! and giclee prints from £75.00, plus in addition to my work! art from 14 other artists and entertainment in the form of live accoustic sets from Emel Michael. Hope to see you there…
Some of the original postcards on sale from £10.00 – signed

Just finished this piece and pleased with the way the colour works with this type of tea. Also working the roots was a very fluid process, would enjoy making an abstract piece made up entirely of this type of form.
Small size giclee prints are now available of 2 new pieces, ‘The Discovery’ and ‘The Vine’.
The Vine, painted in a combination of Ink, Brandy Vodka and Whisky will appear at London Miles’ March exhibition of vices – you can find out more here
The prints, produced as signed giclee editions onto Hahnemuhle archival watercolour paper in a limited edition of 25 each are signed by the artist and are available for £75.00 each here
It’s about alcoholism,

Continued work on this piece adding more foliage to the background and colour to the central motif to draw the eye, exploring the relationships between geometry and floral pattern, and learning more about this floral pattern which figures as part of many civilisations through its connection with sacred geometry.
