I'm off to Spain next week!

I'll be leaving on Sunday for a week in Ampurias, an ancient Roman town complete with ruins and a beach! I'm taking my sketch pads (and Linn) so I'll be posting images when I return.

My Desk

My new prize possession is my Dell LCD 19" Monitor. This beauty has freed up a huge amount of desk space as well as improving my digital workspace too! Anyway, I drew this in response to a brief titled 'Wish You Were Here', the idea being to depict a place where you meet people, talk to friends and get inspiration. Well sorry guys but my PC is my access to the world. I have every visual reference I could ever require and my best friends from all over the world can be reached via the click of a mouse (hooray for Skype and Messenger). Plus I've been a little under the weather this week so I haven't strayed far from my desk.

I'd also like to link this piece to a website that I find fascinating called 'On My Desk'. Here creatives share photos of their workspaces and give a little insight into their inspirations and methods. I warn you it is very addictive...

I'm everywhere!

We popped down to Waverley Train Station today to take a few pictures of the barrier arms with my images on them. We also happened upon one of the taxis! Once we'd spotted one we kept on seeing them everywhere!

It is finally here!

My book arrived from the publishers this morning so it is now available for all you lovely people to purchase. You can get it on Amazon, W H Smith or straight from my publishers. You know you want to....

An ancient horse

My grandparents had one of these at their house, whether it was real or not I don't know! I love the way these statues stand and I had a compulsion to draw one.

My Business Gateway poster in Glasgow...

Thanks to Lex for pointing this out and providing a map! I took this photo this afternoon. If anyone else spots one please feel free to let me know. I saw a few more of this particular one but I'd like a photo of one of the green ones!
