Am I Dave Gorman?...

Well, no, I'm not - But this guy is!

Snoo and I went to another recording of Radio 4's Genius last night - and it was superbly funny again! I particularly enjoyed the guy that suggested claiming the East and West poles for Great Britain. The finger nail scrubbing brush (that's a scrubbing brush made from fingernails as opposed to a brush for scrubbing them...) was also inspired, if not a little gross! I'm looking forward to the show next week as well. As you can see, I got meet the great man himself which was a real bonus!

Manic Street Preachers - Spring/Summer Tour Video

Now the tour has sadly finished, I have wrapped up work on my little pet project...

Manic Street Preachers - Spring/Summer Tour Video (aka "This Is My Tour...") is a montage of footage from the gigs I attended on the tour. Hopefully it'll bring back memories for those who attended, and for those that didn't (for whatever reason) I hope you can enjoy some of the highlights!

A sixteen minute "directors cut" is also available for download. I hope you enjoy it! Feedback is very welcome.

I'm finally getting round to compiling my CD for the FD exchange. Why oh why am I so rubbish at doing these?! I always get really excited aboout it, but then it ends up being a real chore as the deadline looms. Ah well, I guess I'll never learn. I have, however, produced a nice cover that I'm pleased with - especially as it's the first bit of illustration work I've done for seemingly ages. You may have noticed that there is a distinct lack of tracklist - this mainly because I (still) haven't decided exactly what to put on there. I told you I was rubbish.

Anyway, what see yea, the blog loving public at large?...

Life Drawing - Pt.5

I went to life drawing again on Monday, for the first time in what feels like ages. The Manics tour seems to have completely wiped out May! It's been good though!

Anyway, I actually remembered to take my watercolour paints with me this time, and I'm pleased with what I produced...

AOTM - June 2007: Laura Quick

This months AOTM is another messy, organic (although, more traditional) collage artist by the name of Laura Quick. I was first drawn to her work from her regular appearances in the Guardian Weekend magazine. I find her use of collage elements, and quick, sketchy drawings work together really well to produce great little spot images. She's certainly been a major influence in shaping my work of late.
