Here's my contribution to the Lakes International Comic Art Festival's "Wish You Were Here" project. It was an honour to be featured alongside such a stellar group of artists - Bill Morrison, Sean Phillips, Dave Gibbons, Bryan Talbot,Steven Appleby and Sarah McIntyre & Philip Reeve.
You can read more about the project and see all the postcards HERE.
I was determined that I wouldn't draw Castlerigg until I'd visited. What a place! Here's some preliminary sketches.

The Lakes International Comic Art Festival commissioned a short film which follows the process of my Aira Force watercolour painting from initial location sketches to final painting. I spent 7 hours in a dark room in Kendal while a camera took a photo every 5 seconds (I was completely unaware of it after the first 6 hours!). Thanks to Julie Tait, Leigh Beavis and Matt Burke. Thanks too to the brilliant Sion Glyn (Santiago) for allowing me to use 2 of his tracks on the video. Diolch yn fawr, Sion! You can buy Sion's album HERE.
My Aira Force painting is available as a print HERE.
