I’m currently working on a range of ideas in different media, including: drawing animals and birds in suits, rendered in watercolour in a semi abstract, painterly way. ‘Beakman’ is a whimsical piece, loosely done as a self-portrait inspired by the work of Brett Whitely. The haphazard, swirling line-work creates a certain tension and unease combined with the menacing look, portrays the bird as a somewhat shady character like a bit player in an early Scorsese film.
