Getting started

This is my first blog to accompany my new website. The blog will carry casual comment and opinion on events and issues to do with work in progress.


I have just completed a biro drawing for the next issue of Nobrow. The theme was topsyturvy. The black biro drawing was digitized and colour layers created by the fabulous Dinah Lone. I drew an anthropomorphic tree family and gave them a fretful part in the picture with humans, usually associated with the anxiety of choice, depicted as carefree clouds. The poem that accompanies the picture explains things a bit more.

Family Tree

Rootless and free to roam

Beneath carefree clouds

A family perplexed

At what to do next

Wander with still memories

Of a world that once passed by.
