Elsecar Inventions Week

Today saw the first day of the 'Inventions Week' commission at Elsecar Heritage Centre. What a great day. I was fortunate to have a quick tour of the site first thing, including a look at the FANTASTIC Newcomen Engine. I then had a long stint drawing and reflecting the tour of the site, followed in the late morning and afternoon by a steady stream of families, who were keen to get involved in drawing using traditional materials and my iPads. The plan for the week is to develop a series of collaborative drawings which contain inventions and contraptions, with a view to creating a series of large scale digital prints.

Rabbits and Kings

Working up a series of paintings on cardboard for a mini installation at Cupola Gallery in Sheffield. I had promised myself that I would exhibit pre-existing work due to the mad turnaround, but I just can't help myself.....
