MAY 2011- Reading Art FAir-DONE!

It was a successful weekend for The Soulful Gallery at the Reading Contemporary Art Fair! Here's a pic of our stand-

 The Soulful gallery crew managed to sell 3 of my original paintings, plus a couple of prints!
I also sold a 4th painting via The Prince's Trust which was involved in the event. All the artists were given a small canvas by the charity and asked to create a painting which was auctioned off . Here's what I did-


I was still buzzing and feeling inspired last night after a great weekend at the Art Fair so I did this speed painting!

 I really need to do way more environment painting and any help, advice or suggestions will be much appreciated. 
Anyway preparations are now under way to design the most 'awesome-ist' mural for UpFest which we are attending in early June. We've got a 32 ft space to fill and I've got a couple of designs for my character sorted but I won't put anything up yet. Watch this space....... :)

April 2011- All set for Reading Art Fair,couple o' commissions and Upfest Approaches!

I haven't posted for a while but things have been crazy-busy what with agency-related commissions, Soulful Gallery and personal stuff.
I've been working on four book covers, some on-going book projects with Richmond Publishing and Oxford Univeristy Press as well as trying to finish some more paintings for this weekends Reading (pronounced redding for anyone outside the UK!) Contemporary Art Fair. Sadly I can't yet show off the illy commissions but check out my other Blog at for my paintings.

In the meantime, here are some random doodles I did.......

I got all fired up and excited after hooking up with some of my old uni buddies and talking about a collaboration! One of them mentioned about each one of us illustrating a particular chosen subject and sorta having a mini-battle so here's mine for the title 'Ghost robot' (actually, I think it was Robo Ghost which sounds better but we had sunk a few jars by then so I can't remember!!).
