Skin Deep

A while ago I went  The Ink For Heroes Tattoo Convention in York with Kelvin Slack of Prophecy Tattoo/Black Heart Tattoo. Kelvin was kind enough to have me at his booth where I added the finishing touches to the portrait I had been working on of him. As usual kelvin was gathering a crowd with his amazing technical ability. I was jammy enough to be in the right place at the right time and subsequently ended up with a mention in top Tattoo magazine Skin Deep. CHEERS KELV! Check his stuff here. LINK

Here's what Kelvin was working on. 

and here's me. That's not Kelvin in the background by the way!

It's not much but it made me smile. Thanks again Kelv.

Back to Life...

I am back from Warsaw and back to reality... and work. Warsaw was great, the weather was great and the company was excellent. It was a much needed break and I successfully managed to do very little which is actually difficult for me at times. 

Here's a photo of the talented painter John Smyth and I at Burn Selector Festival in Warsaw.
 John's work can be found here LINK

And here's an example of his painty painty goodness.

I am finding it slow going at the moment. This is always the case when I take a step back for a couple of weeks. I have been working on this 40cm painting to ease back into it. I have to get cracking as I need to get 5 pieces done for the Edinburgh Art Fair in November. LINK There seems to always be a deadline in my life.

Still quite a bit to do... will post more tomorrow.


Have some of this

Last Minute... always a great idea.

Here's what is going out into the world today... and a few other bits and bobs. Look out for upcoming Exhibitions at UnionGallery Edinburgh, Fotheringham Gallery Stirlingshire and White Rabbit Edinburgh.

Right! I'm off to Warsaw for a week. Anyone in Warsaw should get themselves to this this weekend! BURN SELECTOR FESTIVAL
