10 November 2017Art in the Tea Room
I'm continuing my regular appearances in Mrs Green's Tea Room, just off the High Street in Dumfries. This is a lovely place to work on some art with a ready supply of beverages and food and I do a morning a week here, currently Fridays.
Look out for the mini blackboard marking my table. Feel free to come over and chat - if I wanted peace and quiet I'd stay at home in my studio.
This is a good place to talk about art and plan a special commission. I've started family portraits, book covers and cartoons for clients in this very place.
If I'm not in, there's a wee gallery of my work by the cake cupboard and on the way to the toilet.
If you're visiting Dumfries, Mrs Green's is the place to go.
07 October 2017The Beachcomber meets Arthur C Clarke
I'm working on a new Beachcomber comic. This one will appear in the December issue of Shoreline of Infinity which will be the tenth issue of that august publication.
December also sees the centenary of science fiction legend Arthur C Clarke. So I'll be working on a likeness of this gentleman who will make an appearance to speculate on anniversaries and milestones with the eponymous Beachcomber.
In the meantime you can catch up with the Beachcomber's previous appearances at the Shoreline of Infinity website in this story's external link.
