Have a look at the new DM site, it is great to see the new home for our friends looking so beautiful. I was a bit surprised quite how much of my artwork, images, materials and even my face is all over it, so if you haven’t overloaded already… go and enjoy the website, full of beautiful images and food for thought.
Also have just been sent some lovely pictures from the participants in the May course in Ireland, and I will post a few here soon, the first is below.
Me ‘at work’, drawing on the last day of Wild Twins. Not a Dark Mountain course per se…
The new Dark Mountain features a detail from a rock drawing I made in Portland this February. Full blog post and pictures here.
I am so happy to announce the new cover of DM13. I was commissioned to make large rock art for it, and the detail on the wraparound book cover looks great, thanks to design by Christian at Bracketpress. Here’s a sneak preview, more when the new DM website launches, and my blog post goes up on their site.
I have been working on the DM13 cover with ochres on huge rocks in Portland. All the work will have washed away by now. More news when I can tell it.
Welcome to the blog. This will be updated often with the natural materials, news and workshops being made here on the river, and on my travels.
In Spring and Autumn 2017 I taught on Fire and Shadow, an eight month long Dark Mountain course. We made archaic materials out in the wild, and took as much time in making them around the camp fire as using them. I have put great pictures and more info on the Workshops page.
