Cats + Internet = Dave Cat
Giant kitty smash city pic on the internet, meet Dave Cat :D
I love Nelson Street. I still can’t get over the fact that I actually mean it… after all it is a dour concrete back street in the centre of Bristol. It is home to some of the best street art out there today. I noticed this new piece opposite the old police station:
This is by Roa. Its big, and its ace. In fact here’s a blog post of it being created that I found: http://www.streetartnews.net/2012/07/roa-new-mural-in-progress-bristol.html
Once upon a time there was a house on Coldharbour Road. It became infamous for its many crazy, debauched costume parties. I lived there for four years, its where I met my wife. The house lives on as happy memories for many good people. We rocked the place ;)
A few years ago I asked an artist friend of mine who used to live at Coldharbour to draw me a picture of one of the early parties for my 30th birthday (he was infact the guy that found the house, lost the house, then found it again so that the legend could be born…) He never got round to finishing the picture and gave me something different, but equally cherished instead. I wanted to pick up where he left off – this is where I got to with a rough colour test.
Experiment over with this one. Its got to the point where I was starting to make it worse rather than improve it, so time to stop. next up – heavy body acrylics :D

Chipping away at painting hands. The changing light makes this a nightmare to keep consistent as it gets dark, but no matter…
