Blue Whale launched our long awaited album ‘Process’ at the Menagerie bar in Belfast on Friday the 9th of November. The drawing above was created for the event by working directly on to an old projector screen with a sharpie.

The cover is a visual metaphor for the collaborative, organic ¬†approach we take to writing our music, Gavin Millar’s excellent long exposure photograph depicting the four band members engaged in creating a large scale drawing, wearing flowing brightly coloured capes.

Here’s a short clip of the drawing under the excellent Menagerie light show:

I set myself the task of having a couple of new drawings ready for Culture Night Belfast on Friday last week. We had an open evening at Cathedral Studios. This is as far as I got with the drawings, the one on the left needs more work.

I was pleased to be asked to do a wall drawing in the vault artist studios members’ room, formerly the reception area of Tower Street Belfast Met. Pool table, leather sofa and bespoke bar are out of shot.

I’m not certain it is finished, if I work more layers on it I’ll post up the results.

These are¬†finished in the sense that any art work ever is. I could keep working at them adding more layers but judge it’s time to paint over them and start again.

An old piece of work, from around 2010 when Robert Rauschenberg and Mark Bradford were my work’s biggest influences.

Blue Whale are thrilled to have moved in to Vault Artist Studios, alongside almost 90 other creative practitioners. I did a bit of decorating of the outside of our space tonight.
