night sky crop

I’m continuing to draw from our flat in these weird locked down days. Two upcoming shows have been postponed indefinitely. The act of drawing is respite from thought; labour intensive activity to become lost in. This drawing has a star chart/night sky feel, employing several techniques. It’s currently composed of four A1 sheets of black card and feels like I could keep adding further sheets to it until our entire living space is consumed.

Blue Whale launched our long awaited album ‘Process’ at the Menagerie bar in Belfast on Friday the 9th of November. The drawing above was created for the event by working directly on to an old projector screen with a sharpie.

The cover is a visual metaphor for the collaborative, organic ¬†approach we take to writing our music, Gavin Millar’s excellent long exposure photograph depicting the four band members engaged in creating a large scale drawing, wearing flowing brightly coloured capes.
