This is a drawing of my accountant Fernando in Mexico city. he's such a gentle friendly man and his appearance is very striking. He wears big chunky rings on his fingers, medallions, a leather waistcoat and his office is packed all over the walls with angels, dragons, Jesus'...even his bathroom is full of baroque statues. I drew him a few times last year. i'd like to paint a big portrait of him.

I drew this with ink on the side of a hill overlooking Scarba and Jura on the west coast of Scotland in July 2006. Matt a friend of my little sister Rebecca commisioned me to do it for some lady he knew. Matt had big incredibly waterproof walking boots from Oban on and Rebecca had just been accepted to do an MA at Reading Uni. I hadn't been to scotland in 11 years and it was so good to be back there. Scotland is one of the most beautiful places in the world I think
