New Edinburgh image: Victoria Street

At last after many years of requests I have completed an Edinburgh collage! This is based on the well loved Victoria Street, just around the corner from the famous Grassmarket.
A PDF of the magazine feature documenting the creation of this image is also available by clicking either of the images below.

The original image and prints in all presentations are available of this image.

 

New image: St Paul's Cathedral

My most recent featured collage in Completely London magazine is this piece capturing London and its typically contrasting architecture living in close quarters. This image was shot from (and also incorporates aspects of) the 'One New Change' office and retail development, and is significantly different from the sunset collage image I produced a number of years ago from a nearby location.
As can be seen here.

The original image and prints in all presentations are available of this image.

A short film by Creative Cherry based around Adrian's San Francisco trip

During the San Francisco leg of the Lonely Planet commission, Al from Creative Cherry came along to make a short film about my work and the process involved.

A beautifully constructed 3 minute flim which explains and illustrates what I do both on location and in the studio perfectly...

 

 

Live interview on STV

Recently I was asked to appear on STV's prime time chat show 'The Hour' and talk about my collages.

A great (if a little nerve racking!) experience, and thanks to the wonders of the internet it can be replayed anytime via this link....

 

New image: Wimbledon Stadium

My latest contribution to Completely London Magazine is this image of Wimbledon Stadium. Captured over two nights 'at the races'. This image illustrates the ever popular East London venue.

The Completely London 'Play' issue is out now, and prints are also available of this image.

The new Glasgow Room gallery

After a decade trading in Princes Square the Glasgow Room has moved around the corner to the newly refurbished St Enoch Centre. Located in the middle of the first floor and continuing to sell a wide variety of work from Glasgow based artists.
As a new addition there is also a display of large prints and two original images of my own work on show.

New London images

Two new London images which were commissioned by
Completely London magazine.
The latest is based around the Eros Statue in Piccadilly Circus. This well loved spot in the heart of London's West End was recently captured over a week of picturesque rainy evenings mainly around dusk time.
This one has quickly become a new favourite of mine!

The Kyoto Garden in Holland Park. A quite unusually peaceful subject matter compared to my cityscapes. Nevertheless this collage was a rewarding challenge which I feel worked very well. The reception from readers also was positive, and you may just have time to pick up a copy before the next issue comes out!

Original collages and prints of all sizes are available for both these new images.

Completely London magazine

Recently I have embarked on a new regular venture working with Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward on their exciting new magazine Completely London.

In each issue one of my collages will be showcased over a double page spread in this beautifully crafted publication. Issue one features my Camden image.

Over the past week I was shooting for a new collage that is to be used in the Spring edition. I'm not at liberty to discuss the subject matter yet, but suffice to say that although it will compliment my previous work it is still quite a considerable departure!

New images of Zürich

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of exploring the captivating Swiss city of Zürich for a commission.

So far I have completed two images. The first being of Paradeplatz and the second of the main station, Zürich Hauptbahnhof, (or Zürich HB as it's more commonly known!).

Both of these originals images now reside in only a short tram ride from where they were shot, but prints of all sizes and formats are of course available.

New image: Sitech Racing's RS Turbo

An automotive collage is something which I had been keen to do for some time. So when Sitech Racing commissioned me to illustrate their 400BHP RS Turbo demo car in my collage style I was more than happy to get to work!

This image is made from various runs with the car and is intended to convey the nature of typical late night testing sessions it often sees.

New image: Cadiz Cathedral

Recently I was commissioned to go to the south of Spain and capture the stunning Cadiz Cathedral.

The largely baroque-style cathedral was built over a period of 116 years, and, due to this drawn-out period of construction, the cathedral underwent several major changes to its original design. This resulted in it finally being completed in a neoclassical style.

Prints are available in the rectangular format
and in all sizes
