stuff and things

it's been a funny few weeks, i won't bore you with the details but i can say that i'm now back in my studio and prepping for the norfolk studios event which starts this weekend!

i mentioned in a previous post that i will be having a buy one get one half price studio sale on older work and have had several email enquiries about pieces. so i've decided to offer those pieces here on the blog and will hopefully have pics and details here by the weekend.

in other news, i've decided to phase out selling prints of my drawings for various reasons so if there is anything you want it would be best to get it now! The Red Door Gallery up in Edinburgh will still stock a selection for the time being.

a reclaimed notebook as sketchbook with a couple of late night sketches...

i come back to the bowerbirds album 'upper air' time and again when i'm in the studio. it's a good all weather, any mood kind of album, and is completely infectious. highly recommended.

part of yesterdays sorting out involved going through loads of older drawings i have stashed away, it's quite fun to see how things have changed over the years. during the open studios event i'll be selling selected older pieces buy one get one half price - that's a pretty good deal!

in other news, i'm doing a another fab deal over the bank holiday weekend, starting today all standard size prints are half price - that's $9 (about £5.50) per print. offer finishes on the 9th. check the range out

i'm in the process of prepping for the event, having a good sort out, organizing work and getting some pieces framed and up on the wall finally.
