Mouth-watering inspiration

My old friend Dan has just sent me some links to his amazing baking blog & Flickr photostream.  The 'Fougasse' loaves (on the left) look particularly irresistable. Perhaps that's what I need to give me some inspiration to do some more work!

Fiddle Festival Drawings

Just a few of my drawings of musicians playing live at the Scots Fiddle Festival in November.  The Festival's Artistic Director, Eilidh Steel (who is also a well-known fiddle-player) invited me to sit in on the recitals part of the Festival's programme.  Line up included Eilidh Steel and Mark Neal (guitar), Jamie Laval with Ross Martin (guitar) & Rod Weeks (Scottish small pipes) and  Ross Couper (fiddle) and Tom Oakes (guitar).  It was a brilliant opportunity, and quite challenging to draw so intensively, in such a public setting.  I'm planning to develop the drawings a wee bit and work towards an exhibition in the near future.  Thanks very much to Eilidh for inviting me, and making contact when she saw my prints and drawings of musicians during my Degree Show at Edinburgh College of Art last year.
