Oven Gloves, I heart my new pens, chemical alarm.

How many blog posts start with things like 'life has been hectic but/so'. I am struggling not to begin another post in the same way. Tomorrow I'm off to ISEA which is conveniently located at Belfast this year. I will be running a session based around my current research. My brain has been in a foul mood with me recently and the only way I have been able to get any space / peace is to draw as it certainly doesn't want me to sleep. What started as a couple of doodles on the back of a cd cover with a biro and some tippex has rapidly (5 drawings later) turned into what are becoming more and more elaborate drawings (which I dont really have the time to do, but at 1 a.m. when my current insomnia is just kicking in I'm in no fit state to read about information theory).

I recently bought a set of pen nibs and some inks from dinkybox. They were a bargain and the people behind the site seem nice too. I never plug stuff you can buy on my blog (apart from Joy Division oven gloves), but this is a one off. pay them a visit.

Dance Dance Dance Dance (in me Joy Division Oven Gloves)

This is my 2nd illustration attempt for a screen play.

May come back to this and add shadows, but wanted to get something up.

Can't wait to see this


Tidied up a wee bit last night but will jettison future tidying to start a new one with better layout.

Back to the grindstone.

Sketching out an idea for an image for a screenplay someone sent me.

It is early days. This image needs simplifying and the foreground character of he Chav with the stolen mobility scooter needs to be brought out / become more obvious.

I don't think that I will go with this sketch but it got the ball rolling.

Fish comish stuff


Just a quick recap on the latest adventures of The Fishery Commission.

On 17th July we played at an event called Ghost Trace Stellar that I was part of through my dealings with The Polytechnic. You can hear the tune we played here > TUNE

Video here >

Then we played on 31st July at an event called Designing Life at The Shipley Art Gallery

July was a good month for The Fishery Commission.

Mandiberg Interview

Here is a link to an interview with Michael Mandiberg:


This was one of the many I did while in New York last year. It is a good one and we put it up on the CRUMB site.

If you stumble across this blog Michael, Please accept my humble appologies for how long this took to actually go live!
