Dundas Street shops are full of colour

I have been meaning to sketch these three shops on Dundas Street for ages, I love the mixture of colours, railings and Georgian architecture. I must pass by this trio of New Town stores most days, usually whizzing by on the bike or car but this week I passed with time to spare so pulled […]

A new commission in a brand new building

Today Lidl opened a new superstore on Easter Road, and they commissioned me to create a sketch for their wall. The brief was to show the new store as both part of the local area and Edinburgh as a whole. I really enjoyed sketching this out as it was a little stretch for me as […]

Circus fun in the Meadows
