Red Neck Zine

I have made a new zine! It's called Red Neck. For a while now I've been mentioning that I've been playing around with making something like this and a couple of weeks ago, with the incentive of the Dundee Jamboree, I finally put it together.

Red Neck is a 28 page zine full of new drawings (all drawn in a 4-day marathon). I set out just to have fun making weird death & destruction pictures, the kind the crazy kid in your class might doodle in his schoolbooks. The end result, as you can imagine, is a little bit grisly but, I dunno, maybe kinda funny?

As an added thing, I knew I wanted to do a little bit of hand-colouring so 17 of the pages have red ink details. This was way more time consuming than I guessed it would be but hey, it means every single copy is unique and has a bit of a different look compared to the usual b&w zine style.

I don't want to post too many of the drawings yet as it kinda ruins the surprise a bit but I'll gradually put up a selection over the next couple of weeks. There are a few full-on patterny pages, some severed limbs, some skulls, some fire and a lot of blood. It's lovely though.

Of course, Red Neck is now available in my online shop. You can pick up your unique copy for the low, low price of £7. Man, I'm a bad salesman. Just have a look and see. Also, if anyone would like to stock a few copies in their shop etc. or needs any further info, contact me and we can sort something out.

I'm really hyped up for doing another zine soon, I've already got a few ideas in mind. Hopefully without the pressure of an immediate deadline I can really focus on doing something quite elaborate. Full colour? Huge? Tiny? Eh, maybe. Stay tuned. I'll also be putting up some new prints and things this week so subscribe if you haven't already for news on that (please).

So yeah, that's Red Neck. Available now. Thanks to Stuart for help at the print place and thanks to the Dundee Jamboree for providing the motivation to put it together. Here are the full details:

Che Camille: Mini Show

I've just taken my Bowl of Cornflakes through to Che Camille in Glasgow for a mini sculpture show that's set to open tomorrow. As well as my piece, there will be work by Gary Bolam, Cheryl Field, and Lewis Holleran on show. Excuse my blurb:

This month sees artwork by Gary Bolam, Cheryl Field, David Galletly and Lewis Holleran. Come join us on the 1st of August 7-9pm for the launch of both the jewellery and sculpture exhibitions. A glittered deer skull, mechanical creations, stone cornflakes, video works and narrative jewellery all await you. Our new artist books section will be making it’s first appearance in the showroom also. The exhibition will run until the end of the month.

Sounds pretty good eh? Che Camille itself is an awesome boutique / workshop / creative space. It's well worth a visit. Here are the deets:

Gimmie Five

Ok, hello! A small post today to get me back into writing this.

I've got to finish off a bunch of things such as tidying and finances before I can sit down to draw, so nothing new today. It's annoying because there are about 3 fairly important drawingy things coming up and I've not got the foggiest what I'm gonna do. Not the foggiest.

This is a picture I did for the "Complete Control" exhibition at Flesh in Edinburgh. My friend Concetta bought it which was really nice. It's called "Gimmie Five".

I had the idea to do a few more of these playing other games such as "Slappy" or "Knuckly" but I never really got round to it. The Flesh exhibition was really good with stuff from Elph, Rue Five, Gopherhead and all that crowd. I hope they put on more in the future. My favourite thing was by Alexa Cameron but goddamn it was huge and expensive so I didn't buy it.
