I'll be giving a short talk at Wakefield Art Gallery on Wednesday 7th May 2008, 12.30 -1.15pm admission FREE. I'll be discussing my life, universe and everything in-between that got me to where I am today, which probably means talking about comics and drawing and that large wall drawing thing I've just completed.
Last night was the private view for 'Drawing the City', my nightmare scenario was me, with a glass of wine and a cold wind blowing through the galleries and no one turning up. However... people did turn up by the dozens, from all walks of life, it reminded me of the Kevin Costner film Field of Dreams and the ghostly voice from the corn field saying 'build it and they will come' - well it's an old film and I might have misremembered the exact extract but the feeling is the same, only with drawings. My friend Carrie very kindly gave me a bunch of daffs last night and this morning they have come out in the sunlight.
