Album Artwork: “A Circus Of Vaginas”.

Hi folks, here is my latest album cover artwork for “A Circus Of Vaginas” which is the debut of Glasgow lesbian Punk outfit, V For Vagina.

When will the album be released?
I don’t know.

Where can you buy the album from?
What am I, a swami? I just draw the pictures okay?

Do you know anything about anything Al?
– YES! A Woman’s heart beats faster than a Man’s and that’s a fact!

From sketching out the layout ideas to the finished piece, all in all, the album artwork took around 9 days to complete. I used a black bic biro pen (my favourite artistic implement) and some thick children’s coloured pencils on heavy duty, rough grained paper.

V For Vagina gave me one of the best illustration briefs I’ve ever received. They said:
So long as it says: ‘Circus!‘, ‘Punk!‘ and ‘Lesbian!‘, and includes the colours red and yellow, you can do whatever you want with this album cover Al.”

So I did.

Larking Around Glasgow Cathedral (PART II).

The Tolbooth Steeple, Glasgow (PART II).

…From PART I

These pictures are from a 1915 report on the future of the Tolbooth Steeple at Glasgow Cross..
One idea was to dismantle the steeple and move it across the road where the Mercat building is.

The Plans:

I think the idea was to completely open up the High Street to allow for more traffic.
They might have been onto something because these days, the heavy amount of traffic around the steeple is causing thousands of pounds worth of damage.

I think the steeple would have slotted into that spot just fine although,
I like it where it is.
