Stanislav Kolíbal

Had this image on my desktop for a while and had forgotten where I had got it from, so I had a wee look today and found it was an image by Stanislav Kolíbal, a Czech artist, sculptor and illustrator, Here's some more images on Google, to save typing his name in.
His style is great in both the artwork he produces and his kids book illustrations, I realised I'd seen it when I was researching the Kaleva, for a job I was working on with a Finnish paint company.

Burns Show

Soon enough I will be having an exhibition at the Henderson Gallery in Edinburgh, of work based on writing by Robert Burns. The opening will be on the 1st of May, but it has been organised very quickly so can post more details soon.
I'm looking forward to playing with lettering and characters, this is the biggest thing I've done in a year so should be quite different I think to work with poems and stories. I am concentrating on the story of Tam O' Shanter for some of the bigger paintings.
As well as the artwork there will be music and readings.

Check the nick of ma digi camera it's like a Charlie Chaplin film or something. Might try and have a doodle guestbook. I'm still blown away you can do stupid stuff like this, in my day, you used to have to used pens and pencils to draw.

Monster Truckin

Been working a bit more on the Monster stuff, think I've got the look of the animations sorted just need to add all the scenes and shots now. Kindo squeezing it in around trying to learn a bunch of different geekery. Plus I started designing my website about 400 years ago and now I've finalised the engine style I want for it. Geekout.
