Finally the Lift Off book and film are both complete! I am very pleased with the results. A HUGE thank you to everyone who worked on and supported the project, including photographer Yvonne Roberts, staff and pupils at St Helen's Primary School in Hoyland, and last but not least the amazing community of artists across the globe who collaborated with the pupils!!

Preview the book here. The film appears below....

Three days in November

Here are a few works in progress from my new mini-project Three Days In November. My idea is to try and create a coherent body of new work over a 3 day period (well about 60 hrs), here in this log cabin in North Yorkshire. I plan to create a small scale publication of the work which includes (so far); sketches, paintings, iPad paintings, drawings and text. I am also looking at putting together a micro short film documenting the process. Ok thats it, better crack on..... 37 hrs to go!

Barnsley Sporting Heroes - Athersley

Today I had a full on day working with 22 pupils from Athersley North Primary School, drawing sporting images with an Olympic theme. The children worked incredibly hard and kept going for the whole day. They managed to create a number of amazing images during the day using only felt-tip pens and wash.
