First Day of Spring

It’s the first day of spring here in the UK and wow what a change we have had in weather. Only yesterday we had snow on the ground and I found myself ice skating to work (without the skates). In a hopeful attempt to bring spring our way I bought myself a little greenhouse and…

2018 Fresh Start

Hello again! It feels like ages since I wrote on this blog, I can’t tell you how strange it feels to be sat here typing. First I want to apologise for my absence. 2017 was a strange year for me, I can’t fully explain why but with 2018 already a few months in I can…

I want change!

It’s been a struggle lately to believe in myself and my artwork. I love creating imagery for you all to see but even though the artist has this ‘I’m only doing art for myself’ idea in their head. It’s sometimes hard to block out that feeling off failing or not being appreciated for the amount…

A productive week

So what have I been upto this last week. Well it all started after I received an email from Collective Arts Brewing, a business over in Canada who aims to fuse the creativity of craft beer with inspired talents of emerging artists, musicians and filmmakers. The email asked if I would be interested submitting some work…

An Early Birthday Present

I’ve always been a little wary and intrigued about drawing tablets (please excuse my oxymoron) Loving the feel of hand drawn images rather than digital, but after much thought, practice of stop motion animation and watching some exciting animation videos like the one below. I finally decided I’d like to give this a go. So…

Aldred’s Artists 8-Sarah Goodreau

I’m happy to announce that I have another artist to show you as part of my ‘Aldred’s Artists’ blog posts. Since joining wordpress I found a lovely artist called Sarah Goodreau. I instantly fell in love with her dark sense of illustration and flowing shapes. Each image has a screen print quality to it and…
