The Robot City Mural

Before I started the actual artwork for the Robot City mural I gave
the school two rough sketches to chose from. They liked both the Cityscape
and the Station so I just threw a coin and decided on the Station.

Here are the two rough sketches.

Here is the Station artwork partway through.

Here is the final artwork. The image has been printed on vinyl with an
adhesive background and it is half a metre by six metres.

Robot City The Mural Is Coming Soon!

 Over the last year I have been working with Thomas A Becket Middle School in Worthing, England. They have produced some fantastic creative writing and artwork around Robot City and it has been a real pleasure to work with them all. As part of my time with the school I have produced a 6 metres long printed mural for them. The other day it arrived at my studio and I couldn't resist just opening the package to take a look. Here are some pictures of the printed mural.

A Day At St.Wilfrid's School

I do a lot of school visits to talk about Robot City and I always get a tremendous buzz from them. It is great to talk with students about Robot City and to hear their ideas and see what they produce when we get down to some drawing and writing.

Below are some pictures that I have been sent by St. Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School in Angmering from a day I spent there recently. Thanks to Paul Hirchfield for organising it all.

Science Museum Inspiration!

Here's a fantastic Robot City drawing done by Felix who I met at the Science Museum last week. He sent it in with his Dad to the Robot City Tourist Board. Great work Felix you've not only drawn an awesome Robot but you've put it in a well thought out cityscape! I hope you keep on drawing.

Drawing At The Science Museum London

The Science Museum in London invited me back for a second year to draw Robots and sign books this Tuesday. It turned out to be another brilliant day. I met loads of people who wanted to stop and have a talk about Robot City. A great big thanks to all the staff at the Museum who made me feel so welcome.

The Auction Result

Thanks to everyone who promoted the auction of my painting for Help For Heroes. It turned out to be a brilliant event to do. I got loads of support and feedback on the painting. Eventually it went for £122 to Mr. William Brown from Kent. He's without doubt a man of great artistic taste.
