ArtPistol Art Gallery Christmas Pop Up Shop

I've been working on some pieces for a Christmas Pop Up Shop by ArtPistol in the Hilton Hotel on Great Western Road in Glasgow this weekend.

(I'd previously written something about this last weekend and have now added "doing a blog entry" to the list of things for me not to do  when I'm drunk. It was a couple of paragraphs of babble about the "primacy of markmaking" - deleted it as soon as I woke up on Sunday morning!).

It looks like at should be a good show with a lot of  great art at affordable prices, so would be a worth a trip to the west end of Glasgow.

A Christmas Carol

I went to see the National Theatre Of Scotland's new production of "A Christmas Carol" on Friday and it was really stunning! It was really atmospheric and spooky -actually pretty terrifying a couple of times. It reminded me that had a "tradition" that lasted a few years of illustrating scenes from the story and giving them as christmas cards. Think I'll start it up again this Christmas. This is my last one from a few years ago now.

Painting in Winter Exhibition

I've got a painting in the Winter Exhibition in PEACOCK VISUAL ARTS - the Centre For Contemporary Art in Aberdeen. I'm going to be taking a trip to Aberdeen next week to have a look at the centre (I haven't been to Aberdeen except passing through in about twenty years) so I can't wait to see it. The exhibition runs from the 12th of November until the 23rd of December.

Christmas Cards


Well, now that Halloween has almost come and gone I've been thinking about what I might draw for my Christmas Cards this year. I've still got some of the cards I had printed from last year - if anyone wants to get some Christmas Cards at a bargain price, here's your chance!

There are two designs - MORE SPROUTS, ANYONE? and CHERRY CHRISTMAS.

The cards were professionally printed (by a real printing company!) and I was really pleased with the finished product because I think they really captured the rich, vibrant colours of the original drawings.

MORE SPROUTS, ANYONE? opens up to a panoramic spread of sprouts inside with MERRY CHRISTMAS! on the back.

CHERRY CHRISTMAS is blank inside for your message.

Dimensions of front of card - 12 x 12cm.

I'm selling them in packs of 10 (with envelopes) for £5.

Postage is £1 within the UK and £3.50 everywhere else.

You can buy them through paypal (along with a message saying what designs you want) by sending payment to -

or through my etsy shop
