The Space Between Ticking Boy

We took down The Spacen last Thursday, hard to gauge the success of the exhibition as it was mainly (for my part at least) in a shopping centre. I was pretty happy with the way my work turned out though and thought it worked well in the large comic panel-like windows of the shop I was in. Dealing with the council and business politics of putting art in shop windows is a tricky business. Most people would like to see something in an empty shop space but there are many difficulties to work out with rates etc and the threat that the space may be pulled before the exhibition is due to finish. This was my second experience of showing in an empty shop and I would have to think hard if the chance came up again.

Head down now to finish work for my degree show by August 12th.

The Rebirth of Ticking Boy

Boneshaker in COAST exhibition.

Ok, it's been a while. But I am now back at ECA to finish off my MA Illustration. I now have to work very hard to produce some strips and other work by 12th August at 4pm, eek!

I have not been sitting around doing nothing though. Blacksand Contemporary Arts have had two exhibitions. The first was COAST in Kirkcaldy Museum & Art Gallery in November last year which has been successfully toured to the COAST festival in Banff in May 2011 - we took COAST to COAST!
Currently showing in the Rothes Halls, Glenrothes is THE SPACE BETWEEN - a joint exhibition with five artists from Cupar. It is on until the 23rd June so still a couple of weeks left to see it.
