Springtime in Wimbledon

I was meant to post these a week or so ago, but have had a lot of work on (which is brill!) I am amazed they came up as the bulbs were from a pound shop and the fact they're mixed!
Even more fantastic.


Spring nearly sprung

The daffodils haven't opened yet in the garden, but I'm hoping this weeks mild weather might coax them out. Still, inside the house it's looking very spring like.



I just stumbled across this on www.ffffound.com. I love the Stands. They're one of my all time fave bands, and I have the top sticker on my old bass guitar!! You forget sometimes how brilliant simplicity can be in artwork.


Clash of the Titans

As you may well be aware they've remade Clash of the Titans. I am highly sceptical of it already. The original was brill.
Also, how are the special effects going to be as good as my hero's Ray Harryhausen?! I remember being terrified watching Talos come to life in Jason and the Argonauts, and equally by Medusa in Clash of the Titans. There's something a bit more life-like with stop frame animation that CGI just doesn't capture. I might be proved wrong with the new film being shown in 3D. I just hope they don't touch Jason and the Argonauts. Surely someone must be able to come up with new film ideas these days?! :o)


Gosh, it's been a while since a post. I'll put it down to finishing off the mens aw11/12 book and feeling uninspired by the end of it!
I'm still on the hunt for a ball gown. I'm hoping a research trip into London tomorrow might throw up a treasure for me.
Since I last wrote, Peds and I and his brother Dorian, went down to Bristol at the end of February for my friend Amy's birthday which we celebrated by going to a WW2 dance at the Tunnels. My god it was amazing! Everyone went to town on the outfits, and men DO look more handsome in uniform. They should be made to wear 1940s era clothing all the time.
As well as some pics from then, here's my latest train of thought illustration wise. Silly sausages.
