Cardbeard Gouache

This was an old marker pen drawing on cardboard that I reworked with acrylics, watercolour and gouache. It was good to try out the gouache on a really big scale, it works really good for outlines.
This will be on display at the Combat Calligraphy show in Liverpool, full details here.

The pieces from Bonus Aisle at Recoat are online now at their online store.
There's a whole load of artwork on there, all for £100 and under, if you can get through the snow, or do it the new-fashioned way online.

Gamma Proforma GP2010 Tour with Absolut

A collision of music, graphic art and great nights in stunning venues. A one off opportunity to experience a creative 360 event.

Each exhibition begins with an exclusive launch party featuring Gamma Proforma DJs, graphic art and ABSOLUT cocktails. There's also a free GP2010 CD for all party attendees!

12 works from Syd Mead, 123Klan, Paul Pope, Phil Ashcroft, Elph, Simon Page, Nobumasa Takahashi, Rob Swain, Rhys Owens, Jared Nickerson, Alex Varanese and Christopher St. Leger will feature. In addition two of the series artists will collaborate to create an additional ’Lucky Thirteen’ piece commissioned by ABSOLUT for selected venues. If you miss the party you can still catch the exhibition during the following week at each venue.

There's more info and links to each event over here. Or on the Gamma Proforma Facebook page.

Digi inking

This was sorto an attempt at digital inking of this sketch. I used Manga Studio to do the outlines, it takes a bit of getting used to, recently with using gouache and acrylic on quite a small scale I think I got a bit rusty with my digital stuff.

Doodle morn

Got some new pens and thought I'd give em a go for sketching the base for paintings. This has been more successful that using pencils and is a little looser.
