Shameless Self Promotion News Update.

Hi folks!

This Saturday, June 3rd, in Glesga, I’ve got a small art stall along with Andrea Heins at the Art On The Exchange Fair. The stalls will be set up alongside the Gallery Of Modern Art.
I’ll be selling artwork and cards…

Here’s a wee bit about this wee market >>>

Art on the Exchange is a series of exciting new arts events launching this June in the heart of Glasgow. The events showcase the work of a diverse group of artists and performers resident in Scotland. These creative professionals are gathering to exhibit work, perform live art demonstrations, play live music and perform street theatre. The aim of these artist-run events is to give both the exhibitors, and the community, the opportunity to meet, trade ideas, make collaborations, perform and appreciate the rich vein of creativity alive and well in Glasgow.

Artists’ displays inside gazebos line the right flank of GoMA, Royal Exchange Square – creating the perfect site to display a wealth of original artwork in natural daylight. A variety of paintings, photography, jewellery and ceramics will be exhibited in this fully accessible location, together with live interactive workshops led by artists, designers and makers. It is the ideal setting for raising the profile of the visual arts in Glasgow and marketing the events to visitors and tourists alike.

We’ll be there from 11am until 6pm come rain or shine and as I understand it, it’s tae’be pissing it doon.

From Pencil To Paper To Pen To Pencil To Photoshop To Poster.

Hi folks,

I’ve been working on a poster for Glasgow band, The Attic Lights, who’re doing a wee set of FREE gigs up ra North ae Scotland during the Summer. And here it is here…

The text has obviously still to go on it but I’m not dealing with that part because I’m not very good at it. Another thing I’m not very good at is Photoshop. As a matter of fact, I’ve never ever used it and so I got help with the colours in this illustration. Pretty pleased with how it turned out! I must learn how to use Photoshop myself.

Everything else is hand drawn and here’s the Pencil To Paper To Pen To Pencil To Photoshop To Poster of it all…
