Nice slides

In the summer my and I were over in Nice for a good friends wedding, whilst we were there I took a bunch of daft photos, I've been trying to think of a way to show all the typo-signage, building stuff that I photograph for a while, usually it's taken as reference for fonts I'll never make, so at least now it's out there. Click the pic to go see the photos.
UPDATE - You can also access the photos via this page where I will add more photosets.

Oil on water

This is the first bit of painting in a while, well the background at least! I tried out a technique of putting down some strokes of Vegetable oil on painted card and then adding some layers of watered down acrylic, the results were the background of this drawing, just wiping it back now and again I was able to keep adding texture.
I'd like to try it on a bigger scale to see if it works, but just need to work a way of not using my cooking oil.
