Like Particles into the Night

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Well, it’s been a while hasn’t it?… Sorry about the lack of service here recently.

A little before Christmas Kuretake UK contacted me through Twitter. They had seen a couple of the drawings I had done using their Zig Clean Colour Real Brushes and asked if they could feature them on their website gallery and their Facebook Page. They also asked if I would be interested in producing some drawings for them for trade fairs etc.

As it happened I had already started work on the A4 size drawing below, again using the Real Brush pens and so I happily agreed for them to take this to show at Paperworld in Frankfurt.

Kuretake have also very kindly sent me some samples of their Art and Graphic Twin pens to try out. I need to think of a way to use them but I hope to post something up here soon.

This drawing has been running around in my head for a while. It is inspired by the song Pop Art Blue by Zero 7 featuring the beautiful vocals of Martha Tilston. The title is taken from one of the lines of the song. Those of you with Spotify can listen to Pop Art Blue here.

Recently I have been considering getting some drawings properly drum scanned and have some archival prints made to sell on Etsy or somewhere. I was thinking that this drawing might be one of these. What do you think? Please comment if you think this is something you would give wall space to…

BTW Mat pointed out that the fella in this picture looks very like him. I completely hadn’t realised but it does bear quite a resemblance to Mat. He even has the hair cut Mat had around the time of our wedding :) Funny what happens in my head without me even knowing :)
