Surprise Dad!

As my Dad doesn't read this blog it's safe to show you all these beer mats I designed as a surprise for his birthday party next week, this lovely ebay shop is printing them for me. I can't wait to scatter them about and surprise my dad! These were made in Adobe Illustrator. I aged the photo using this excellent tutorial you can find here, to achieve a 'real ale' sort of traditional look.

Not dead

Teacher training really scuppered my blogging for a while. Here I am once more, with a just-completed oil painting of a drinks can. I'm pleased with the top of the can and the ring pull, and the lettering isn't bad. Hopefully the time I have this month will let me get some more paintings done, and I can finally realise my goal to enter something into an exhibition.
