I love the music of The Black Keys and have watched this video for their new single, Lonely Boy, about a million times. I’m sure others will be able to relate when I say that it reminds me a little of my Dad.
One of my creative buddies, Harvey Hartley, started out as an illustrator but has now branched out to photography. I think he has a really humorous way of capturing the mundane perfectly, which is definitely a reflection of his personality.
The work of Alan Baker, aka Charming Baker, first came to my attention when he illustrated some pieces for the Guardian newspaper several years ago. He has come a long way since then and is currently ripping up the fine art scene with huge sell-out shows.
David O’Reilly is bordering on the line of genius. I don’t need to say much about him, just watch his animation, The External World, and you’ll see what I mean.
I first came across one of Tessa Farmer’s pieces in the Saatchi Gallery in London and could not take my eyes of it. The intricate detail really needs to be seen to be believed, but the artwork on her site still looks great.
Every year or so, I get itchy hands and have the urge to push my work into a slightly different direction. I felt my latest work warranted a new website to display it in a cleaner way, so have just launched the brand new Scribble Jay with an accompanying blog.
