Mummy, why is Richard not on Blue Peter anymore?

I've been doing some text based sketchbook work recently based around current affairs and topical stories.
I've then progressed from this with the idea of using the theme of children's TV from the 90s, when I grew up. I think the subject matter marries the themes of childhood, humour, fun and the forgotten, obscure celebrity, all of which I have been playing around with all ready, perfectly.

I've done a few quick doodles and written a few one-liners in a similar style to my p
revious work.

Here are a few, but you can see the rest on my flickr.

I'll update more when I creat some larger scale painted/printed pieces.
Don't forget you can follow me on twitter.

First update in ages.


It has been too long since I last updated. No excuses, althought I haven't been up to much.
I've been doing a lot of sketchbook work, working with text again. Hopefully I'll get some scans up soon.
Stay tuned.

I've been trying to do some photography, I won't repost the pictures here just yet but you can see some of my new Zenit-E photos on my flickr site.

Also... I was on the Jeremy Vine Radio 2 show today giving my views on Southampton City Council potentially selling a large number of paintings including Picassos, Turners and Monets.
It was quite embarrassing and I sounded like an idiot but I'm laughing thinking about it now.

Keep an eye out here for new posts.
