Oh WOW! It was so good to be at a live gig this week, Skindred at The Tramshed in Cardiff, first gig in over 18 months. It was AWESOME! I was so energised and danced and bounced for hours (killed me for the next two days though). But I still found a bit of time to have a scribble. We were upstairs so I was looking down on the crowd in the dark and I could only see white shapes of heads, faces, arms, hands. So I scribbled them, in the dark …. why not, eh?
I added the blackness today, using a very soft charcoal pencil and a tortillon. I would have carried on scribbling but I dropped my pen over the edge of the balcony onto someone’s head – had to duck so I wasn’t spotted.
Anyway, I couldn’t scribble when Skindred was on stage because I was screaming and hollering and headbanging. There was loads of crowd surfing going on down below, and a lively mosh pit. That brought back memories. When I die I want my friends and family to crowd-surf my coffin to a Skindred track. Here’s Newport’s finest at The Tramshed. I’m in the middle at the back on the balcony. Can you see me? 😀
A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks
I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.
To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left to see the complete image.
20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
