People Hamish Look Like


birthday present for my step dad Hamish, who often has 'Hey! Paul Weller!" shouted at him by drunk young mods in the streets of Dundee, personally I think he looks more like Noel Gallagher and some others claim to see a resemblence to Serge Gainsbourg.

D'Arcy Thompson




a couple of sketchbook things for D'Arcy Thompson project the second pic isn't really my style, but I am trying to experiment with collage a bit more as I like the look of it I just hate getting prit sticky fingers.
Not too sure where I am going with it all yet but have really enjoyed researching. Looking at horns and am quite enthralled by narwhals tusks & especially the rare 2 tusked narwhal!

KYTN


launch is on sunday, awaiting timetable for taking stills as part of the doc team, have LOTS to do for D'Arcy Thompson project too but couldn't resist some multimedia fun times, its not very often we have such a large art event in Dundee

Would ideally like to make a much larger scale print using letter press





things I have been looking at recently as possible influence for personal project coming up later this semester, ciphers and concrete poetry both actually have a lot of similarities. type type type

on set






couple of pics from on the set of 'meta' matt cameron's film. I did not properly document all the costumes because I am an idiot but I think the behind the scenes shots are more interesting anyway. It was cold mostly & very long hours but now its over I must say I am quite sad. Cannot wait to see the final film I am quite positive it is going to look A-mazin
