My Friend Alan

February 11, 2010

Hello! hope everyone’s doing well, I realise it’s been a little while since I actually talked about someone else on my blog, which I feel a bit bad for, one of the main reasons I set it up was to share the work of other artists and creatives as well as my own.
Anyways, today im biggin up my photographer friend Alan Campbell. Alan’s from just outside Glasgow in Airdrie and is a bit of a jet-setter, but for good reason as the pictures he takes on his trips are pretty amazing.


I especially like how Alan captures the people in his photos, I was fortunate enough to catch up with him to check out some galleries around town right before he popped off to Vienna.


For more on Alan check his Flickr or Site, also the ‘Line Cut Sky Exhibition’ here.

thanks for reading! more paintings soon :)

Unoccupied

February 2, 2010

Hello! hope everyones, just a quick little post to let you know about my photographer friends Gary(YHF) and Gillian’s (Dappblephotography) Exhibition which starts in Glasgows 13th note cafe tommorow.

It’s themed around abandoned spaces and large vacant areas and from what I gather should be very interesting, I’ve worked with Gary and Gillian on some projects before and they are both very talented photographers with a great eye for mood and composition.

so anyways if you fancy it, its on from 8 tomorrow and runs till the end of the month, ill be there too :P

take care nx

Winter Adventures!

December 6, 2009

Bonjour!

Hope everyone’s well and wrapping up warm. I must apologize for not updating this in a wee while I’ve been a bit of a hermit whilst getting work together for college and my Christmas commissions.
I had a little stall today in town, and it was absolutely lovely, i couldn’t have thought of a better to spend my Sunday afternoon than to have a gab with some crafty people and fellow robot fans, although unfortunately I had to say goodbye to some of my favourite pictures, including the zelda one :( !

But don’t worry i still have a good number of paintings left, most of which are in the lovely maisonette shop in the west end, don’t they look comfy!

Thats not all though there’s plenty more in the shop as well as an amazing mind boggling exhibition by my good friend Gary MacLennan who i previously posted about here.

Garys new exhibition is all about tiny people and their tiny lives, and to emphasize the point,the exhibition is actually all miniature and is to be viewed with a(given) magnifying glass!

Here’s me having a peek.

For more about the wonderful Maisonette and how to get there please look here

My work will only be there till thursday so hop-hop!

Just before I go i’d like to thank everyone who came along to mono today, I was totally flattered by the people who came to see me and stopped to say hi :)

Have a great weekend!

My Little Black Book.

October 20, 2009

Being the arty type that I am, I usually carry about a little sketchbook, mostly for jotting down little ideas here and there,sometimes for writing down important information and other times it’s used as a journal/diary.

Its amazing what you can do with blank paper! :P

Anyways,usually when a friend’s close by they’ll ask for a flick through to see what I’ve been putting in it, so today I thought I’d scan in one of the more presentable pages to pop up on here for everyone to see :)

book

as you can see its all nonsense and scribbles but i thought I’d share it anyway!

take care.

Garry MacLennan,My Favourite Photo Person.

August 12, 2009

I’d like to think if for whatever reason i put down all my pens,pencils and brushes etc and picked up a camera my art would come out a bit like Garys, He is a very good friend of mine and also one of my favourite photographers!

After getting to know him through craft markets etc we found we had quite a lot in common, mostly a love of robots and all things spacey.
After a lot of talking and careful planning me and Gary put on a joint exhibition in Glasgow named ‘Uninvited’ which would explore the ups and downs as life as a robot in the city.

It was a fantastic turnout and i have to say one of the big highlights of my year so far.

Anyway here are some of the photos!

Elderly Robot, Margaret, did you remember the messages list?

This was much more fun when she was here

Do you have to go out tonight i made steak pie

I love how they all have little stories in them, all with a little touch of humour.

Gary also sent me some of his newer works, which feature tiny plastic people,almost in a slinkachu style, going about their tiny lives.  I think the new stuffs amazing, especially the one with the sheep!

I know katy, i wish she was here too

imk just going to say hello, i wont scare them

For more on Gary and his photos check out his flickr and/or myspace.

Thanks for reading!
