In the end we went with the classic Head option, with the final image being stretched out to fill the space and the various parts moving around a bit. Normally going from rough to final I would swap over to using gouache and painting it, which can sometimes mean I tighten up and make the image a bit too clean. This time however I was enjoying the pencil marks so stuck with it. Thanks to Alexandra Zsigmond for the commission and great art direction.

fascinating piece that looks at a new research initiative into the Brain that hopes answer, among other questions ... 'how the brain generates thoughts, dreams, memories, perception and consciousness...' This was nice, quick job with the turnaround ending up being about 4 hours for roughs and final.

On the 13th of Feb to celebrate the day before Love day (where everyone gives strangers hand made cards with hearts on them and scrawls sweet nothings inside with their non writing hand), we aka Owen & The Eyeballs, the band I am in, have a gig at Catch. We will be playing with the marvelous Dead Pirates who contrary to their name are neither dead nor pirates. (I could be wrong).
Details below. Poster above by Jim 'Jimbalaya' Stoten.
