Facebook page & new exhibition

It's been quiet on here as I now have an illustration page on Facebook that I use more often. I'll still use the blog from time to time but for now you can catch up at www.facebook.com/artbymch

In the mean time I have a new solo exhibition coming up in May at the Unity theatre:

iam8bit 10th anniversary group show 2015

So pleased to have two paintings in iam8bit's 10th anniversary group art show.


Keep On Workin'… 
acrylic on canvas
80x40cm

A pastiche of R.Crumb's famous 'Keep On Truckin'…' cartoon. I love playing old video games - the idea of the painting being that them good ol' retro joysticks won't last forever.



Turbo Charge
acrylic on deep edge canvas - influenced by Colecovision's 'Turbo' game driving controller.
10x8 inches

2015 Liverpool Open Exhibition at Editions Gallery

Honoured to be part of the 5th Liverpool Open group exhibition at Editions Gallery in Liverpool especially as the standard of artwork and number of entries was even higher this year (also very happy to have sold my painting 'Drivin' Dawg' at the PV).
Exhibition runs until June 20th.

FINALE group show 2014 at the Liverpool Academy of Arts, 32 Seel Street, Liverpool

Three pieces entered in the last LAA show to be held at its current venue. Such a sad time that its closing. I've received nothing but encouragement and enthusiasm from the gallery owners June & Dave Lornie over the years and have exhibited, sold work and attended many shows here in the past. Dave and Lornie if you are reading this my best wishes to you both. I also wish to thank the volunteers and everyone who made the exhibitions possible. Hopefully they'll be back at a new location in Liverpool very soon.

Exhibition runs until the 28th of August 2014. Tuesday to Saturday 12-4pm.
The Liverpool Academy of Arts, 32 Seel Street, Liverpool, L1 4BE
