One weekend - two shows

So its a busy weekend. I'm spending most of it at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh at their DesignMarket where around 40 designers are selling their talented wares. Its a brilliant space to show work, I'm upstairs and its bright and airy and so far has been a lot of fun. Tomorrow is the last say, so if you are in the Capital, then please pop along between 12-5pm.

I've also taken a stand at the Home and Gift show in Harrogate to show some of my cards, prints and tshirts. (photos above and below) Thanks to my brilliant team who drove down there this morning to set it up all up. Its looks great, they done a fantastic job. If you are planning on visiting the shown then please come say hello at Stand F14, in the Intro North section.

Com'on Andy

Boy that was tense. Sunday is going to be a nightmare.

Red Shirt

Tonight, instead of doing the work I was supposed to be doing, I decided to play with Photohop's animation options. The results could be the thing that blows Pixar out the water.

Will be in Cinemas, in 3D, next summer.

Axis: Artist of the month

I've been chosen as the artist of the month by the lovely folks at Axis magazine. You can read a little interview with me on their site here. You can learn all about being an insomniac, my sketchbook collection and Moomin lawyers.

Unfortunately there was not space to include all my answers so the in-depth section in which I revealed my favourite books had to be cut short, who remembers these?

"When I was a wee, I loved the Ladybird series of books that my parents bought me. My favourite tales were the one about the magic paintbrush (everything you draw with it becomes real) and the one about a series of connected events that allow an old woman to get her pig to jump over a stile."
