I have recently started a new series of drawings concerning the ghosts of monkeys with sci fi interactions.

OK, so I am finally back from St Ives after spending an inordinate number of hours on the train this weekend. The show at John Knill House looks good thanks to Phil and Sally, co curators extraordinaire and I was pleased with the show as a whole as well as my works contained within it. There was a steady flow on the night of the private view as well as on the first day, and I enjoyed listening to the extraordinary stories of famous characters past that had lived there. As well as Nocker who didn't wear any clothes other than a dress on the odd occasion, I was taken aback to see on the return journey the biggest owl I have ever seen sitting casually on some scaffolding erected outside a house just outside St Erth. I had previously that night dreamt about an owl on a pole seen from my bicycle whilst cycling at night and had written it down that morning in my journal. My dream also contained an animal leg and the owl fixed horizontally to the pole, so I can only hope that the real owl seen didn't succumb to the same fate.
