I'm still enjoying going on Twitch every week and the community is growing. Using it as experimental time rather than just drawing a standard Korpworm is also starting to pay dividends with lots of new ideas coming out. In the last couple of weeks I've draw a few drippy characters which I'm really fond of. Let me know what you think.
Each stream is about 2 hours long but if you are short of time I have squeezed it all into these 3 minute videos. Don't forget to subscribe while you are on YouTube.
I'll be back on Wednesday at 8pm if you want to join in and chat. Click on the button below.
Not everyone is into a 2 hour live stream so here are my last two Twitch streams shortened to 3 minutes. Find me on Twitch every Wednesday at 8pm.
I've taken to broadcasting from Twitch every Wednesday at 8pm so I can work on some experimental pieces and so far the results have been quite interesting.
I recently set up a profile on Twitch so I could broadcast a little more. I enjoy doodling with company so this felt like a good way to do that on the fly. Find me here.
My first stream was to try out the new Posca colours and let you know what I thought of them.
I've been working with New Urban Era running some online doodle workshops and the most recent was linked to their "We Are Angels" project. I spent a little time showing everyone a very simple method for drawing wings and then added my Korpworm character to it using Posca pens.
The project revolves around artists painting full size angel wings around the town so that people can take a selfie in front of them. You can get involved yourself by creating your own angel wings and emailing your designs no later than the 22nd November to: email@example.com.
Not sure how to draw angel wings? Try out my tutorial below.
If you post your designs online as well be sure to tag me @studiokorp. Want more workshops like this? Check out the Korp Academy.
I'll be broadcasting again on the 14th November at 2pm so head over to their page and join in.
The Junk Yard Jam has quickly become one of my favourite events of the year. Andy and Mike are doing a great job on so many levels. To start with its great to be able to have some really amazing canvases to work on like cars, vans, trailers, containers and even some big silo's. After the event most of the pieces are grabbed and destroyed by the on site excavator (see below) or, where artistically appropriate, set alight (check the Irony Lighter piece). The other thing they do so well is make you feel welcome and appreciated and with drinks, snacks and pizza for that energy boost. Top fellas putting on a top jam!
It was the first Battle Lines of the year recently and it was me up against my good buddy Arran MacPhail. Had a great time...and I won!!
Very pleased to announce that I'll be painting at Upfest again this year. Check out the link below to see more of my work at Upfest.
Irony invited me down to London to paint at his new venue the Nags Head Market. The only issue was that it was painting freehand on shutters which I've never done before. Keeping in mind that fear of failure holds you back I went down with a positive attitude that even if I bombed it would be a good learning experience.
It was meant to be a worm head but I get that it looks more like a fish, either way I was pleased with the result. Shutters are not as bad as I thought, the uneven surface gives you a lot of leeway in your lines which was a good thing for a first timer.
Here are some of the other artists paintings...
Huge thanks to everyone involved in Korpfest.
The artists for donating their time and talent and producing such diverse and, in many cases, thought provoking art.
All you visitors for showing up in big numbers and especially those that supported the artists by buying their artwork. It means a lot.
All the bloggers, photographers and videographers for sharing content. It really helps spread the word and grow the event.
The sponsors, Eastern Angles, Paper Cloud and Nathan Jones Decorating for giving me the tools, support and creative freedom to pull the event together.
My biggest thank you, however, goes to the crew. Nathan, Harriet, Hayley and dinnerlady Nicola. I couldn't do this without you.
Hope you all enjoyed yourself. Catch you sometime next year at Korpfest 3.

As part of Korpfest2.1 we had Ink Imaginarium working from a Korp flash sheet with fantastic results.
