Scribblemania 97


                      Oi.........you.......over 'ere. The Templar Books Paper Watch Auction is now up and running so if I were you I'd get over there and check out the amazing array of affordable delights on offer and pick yourself a spiffing timepiece asap.

In case you'd forgotten, it's all in aid of Breast Cancer Care so you'd be making a donation at the same time. Please take a look here

This is my contribution and I've added a few development drawings which I'll include as a giveaway for the succesful bidder on my particular watch.

The Paper Watch Project - Templar Publishing

Those smashing people at Templar Publishing in the land of Surrey (UK)
are running a tick-tock-tastic project to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.

No less than 80 illustrators will be personally designing the face of a very cool 
paper watch (as shown) before they go up for public auction, online, in late September 2013.
Keep watching this space for details as I'll be keeping track of progress.
(watches will have a minimum bid of £15)

Other reference points for hot news and 
previews of all the watches as they come in;

A Sense of Place

I've been in my studio at Dean Clough Mills for over five years now.
Formerly the largest carpet mill in the world it is now a regenerated space and is home
to over 150 businesses aswell as various arts projects, the famous Cooking School,
and nine gallery spaces, not to mention the bars and restaurants, cafes and anything
else you might need. A room for the night? A gymnasium? A touch of retail therapy?

The current project to re create the whole place in Lego is coming along
at a fast pace and is the work of two extremely talented and dedicated bricklayers,
Tony Priestman and Michael LeCount. Here are a few current shots. The red circle
rings the two windows to my working space.

Knowing the site as I do, I'd guess that in it's present unfinished state, the model is
approximately one third complete. Yes, I know, it's HUGE! And it's well worth a visit.
So pop along and I'll show you around and make you a cuppa.

A few sketchbook thoughts and scribbles on the life of George Stubbs - equestrian artist.
Having studied anatomy, Stubbs was fully competent in his choice of subject but he was never
given full membership of the Royal Academy. 
This, on account of him being classed as a mere 'sporting painter', something that was looked
down on by the art establishment. Not so surprising I suppose, to know that controversy and
snobbery was prevalent in the eighteenth century art world, in much the same way as it is today!

And now for some fun with the 3D printer

 Initial concept drawing ( top secret project ;-)
                       Built using 3D software by my partner in crime,  the very talented, Mr Matt Howarth
                                                            http://www.puppetman.net
                              Then converted into an STL file and 'printed out' through a 3D printer.
                          Few problems here and there with certain limbs but you can see where it's heading.
                                                   
                             Thanks are due to Ian Langley at Denfords Engineering in Brighouse.
