interview, sketches & skulls

There's a super sweet little interview with me over at Thanks Mike Cuffe for the beautiful pictures of my studio! (it's usually not so tidy..)

You can kinda get an idea of the layout of the space here. It's so sunny. I love it. 

 and my arm. 


here are a couple concept sketches from the flight home the other night..
A bit odd, of course.

and here's your daily dose of me being a weirdo

and now i have a headache from being around too much black paint. I think.

reworking this piece..

I didn't get to finish it exactly how I envisioned, so I'm giving it another ago. For a show in London in October. More info soon.

Love this post...great to see your beautiful studio too...
Can I ask a question : Do you paint for "Shows" or do you get busy the majority of time with "Commissions"?

Happy Friday!

@We Blog Artists I paint for shows mostly. It keeps me way too busy to have time for commissions!
