Got a new comic bundle from my friends at Shazam. Love that full colour, Ben Day, stretching the colour range.

Going to use these to cut and paste (not the comics!) some imagery for a range of western pieces I'm working on.

Vintage map of Portobello's East ward. Interesting to see the number of places/streets that have changed names.

Love the iconography of the West. The stories told to young people in cowboy comics from the 50s; the love, the betrayal, good vs bad.. I'm also fascinated by the layered printing techniques, Ben Day, framing/composition, depth of perspective, colour theory..

Squeeze markers are my new favourite. #drip

Even though they take ages to dry on spraypaint, and bleed into raw paper too much 🤔

Studio action..

Sent an email out to the brick and mortar stockists tonight asking if they need any new pieces. Probably about as organised as my calendar can allow at the mo'.

Hope you're planning ahead, got a good schedule, and making time for yourself. ✌️❤️

Fishwife was often a derogatory term, as noted in the expression, 'To swear like a Fishwife'. Usually the wives and daughters of fishermen, fishwives were notoriously loud and foul-mouthed, known for their hardiness, industry and enjoying their down time. The stories of the girls, and their exploits, following the herring fleets up the UK are hard to fathom these days.
