Fish sculpture

This was a fish I created while having a picnic at Nash Point in South Wales. It was put together from pieces of driftwood, washed up sections of old rusty metal and lots of stones, pebbles and rocks. Some of the items are quite big and it is about 6' long. Great fun to make and probably now just bits of rubbish along the shoreline once more.

Viola, is my 1969, bright purple VW Camper, she has served me well for a number of years now but her maintenance is proving too costly. This lino cut is another I found in my long lost folder of other things I hadn't looked at in a while and although the print is perhaps not quite up to scratch I do like the image.

I enjoy lino cutting, it's very relaxing, like peeling mushrooms or picking your toenails. Unless you are really good, you always end up with a playful, simplistic image, which for me is a change from the more tight arsed things I tend to produce.

Santes Dwynwen Day

25th January is St Dwynwen's Day in Wales, she is the patron saint of lovers. So in a romantic gesture to my wife I made a heart shaped sculpture from stones and pebbles on our patio. It measures about 4 foot square. Who said romance is dead hey.

A Pheonix logo I painted a couple of years ago for a company I worked for. Came across it again while looking through some old files on the computer, just like opening up an old chest of drawers to find some old sketch pads.
