I was invited to do some live painting last weekend at winter BASE an International Street Art and Music Festival held in the Ulster Hall. Under my alias TWEET I was lucky enough to be painting beside REMED (Madrid). Below Iíve posted a picture of the final artwork and a stop motion video of how it was made.
You can see the sketches I did in preparation for this piece here.

After painting last weekend at winter BASE an International Street Art and Music Festival held in the Ulster Hall I was pretty tired of painting and wanted to do something simple on Monday nightís painting group.
Over the next few days I will be putting up pictures of my piece at winter BASE, hopefully accompanied by a making of video.

The Ulster Hall will be open from 2pm-6pm this Saturday and Sunday with free entry between those times, so please come down and say hello.
In preparation Iíve been doing some sketches in my spare time this week of what I may do.
You can see what I painted at summer BASE last year here.

I was commissioned by The Times to create a 12-panel comic for the article ďAn ordinary man on a bad day, he changed the world for everĒ. The comic depicts the events of December 17, 2010 that would end in the death of the 26-year-old Tunisian street trader Mohamed Buazizi, sparking protests that would topple his countryís president and unseat Hosni Mubarak, igniting a firestorm of anger across the Arab world from Tunisia to Jordan to Egypt.
Below Iíve included my roughs to the final 12-panel comic printed in The Times. You can view close ups of the comic on the Tunisian Revolution project page.

I have been really busy with storyboarding jobs this week and whilst on a coffee break I came up with an idea on how to recycle old tee-shirts that had been relegated to the back of the drawer due to Italian food stains.
I thought I could simply use some dark tee shirt transfer paper (that Iíd used on the Laundry project) to cover the stain playing to the strength of the transfer by make it look like a sticker.
The problem Iíve always found with this transfer paper it is very hard to ensure a crisp image as it normally breaks up due to too much heat or not enough, but in this instance the lack of a crisp image added to the design.
