You will be able to buy them from Ruby Blue in Carlisle in the coming weeks, and I may look into putting them on etsy.

An hour ahead of schedule, here is what I have done with my evening. It's another bash at painting, and it's another partitial success, partial failure. I'm still not quite feeling the style of painting fitting with the style drawing.
This wasn't meant for illustration friday, but you know, miners probably get muddy, or at least coaly.

They will be in stock at Ruby Blue Vintage very soon indeed.

It seems to be becoming quite a routine - posting at around half 10 whatever it is I've just spent the last 2 hours doing. Here is the fruit of my labours. I stumbled upon a website full of old photos of criminals and convicts from the past. This chap is called W.T Browne. I'm not sure what he was convicted for, but I bet it was pretty nasty.

It's by no means a completed style or anything, but I'm quite pleased with it as a first attempt. I was looking forward to carrying on in the vein, but unfortunately I've run out of white gouache.

I have just discovered the wonders of Aurelius Battagila. For those of you who don't know (and I am certainly one of them) -
Aurelius Battaglia (January 16, 1910 – May, 1984) was an American illustrator, muralist, writer, and director. He was born in Washington, D.C., in 1910 and he died in Provincetown, MA in May, 1984. He was the son of Giuseppe and Concetta Battaglia, who had emigrated from Cefalù, Italy. Aurelius attended the Corcoran School of Art. He graduated as one of the Corcoran’s most promising students, winning $50 in a Corcoran-sponsored art contest.
I'm loving the shapes he uses, aswell as the way he works into blocks of flat colour. Lovely stuff indeed.
