Hi Folks,

I hope you enjoy my work – essentially my aim is to entertain, amuse and distribute my creations, and to enjoy/be inspired by seeing other people’s work. It gives me pleasure to know that someone likes my work enough to buy it. Some of it was produced commercially but I’ve retained the right to re-use what’s here and sell it on, while other work is purely for my personal pleasure and experimentation – but hopefully there is enough variety of style, subject matter and media to be of interest.

If you’d like to see more of my work you can here

Scraperboard Sketching – try something new!

I’d like to start by saying that this blog is not for experienced scraperboard (aka scratchboard) artists who like to work in the ‘traditional’ manner, although it may be of interest if you want to try a different approach. Whilst I’ve been a professional illustrator and graphic designer for 30-odd years I’ve only recently started using scraperboard, so I’d like to share with you my take on this …
