Loy Krathong

At the weekend I went with Pat to the Loy Krathong festival at the Buddhapadipa temple in Wimbledon. The centrepoint of the festival (which falls on a full moon in november) is the launching of small hand-made rafts equipped with candles and incense. The rafts (krathongs) are traditionally made from banana tree trunk, though ours were made from styrofoam adorned with thin paper leaves. Releasing the rafts is a way of letting go of anger and bad things, and of giving thanks to the river.

Some dogs

Sketched at a dog show at Earls Court last weekend.


Portrait commissioned as a surprise Christmas gift for the steed's young rider. I don't really paint a lot of furry things, so it took me a while to get the technique right. Fairly pleased with the finished piece though. Acrylic on illustration board.

I've posted a little work-in-progress montage on my olde Facebook page.

Monkeehub Creep video

Just remembered this.

Love that facial animation. Couldn't get the version on the Monkeehub site to work.

Little Runners

These are Pat's running trainers. They're still pretty clean...
Sorry it's a pretty nasty quality image- just wanted to photograph it quickly.

Really liking the new American Express advert by Ogilvy & Mather. Launched tonight. Awesome.

Some sketches from my girlfriend and I's trip up to the Lake District last month. First bit of watercolouring for a good while. 

I've got a few more of these, but unfortunately I'm having to use a different scanner, which seems to be incapable of producing a decent image.
