The Man in the Purple Suit
Here is a shot of me at work in my studio.
I'm finishing off a pretty big portrait of my great friend Aidan Mulholland. I have depicted him wearing a purple suit and silver shoes which I think reflect his exuberant personality.
We were at school together many years ago, and have stayed friends ever since. (He's actually a few months older than me in case you were wondering.)
Aidan's path has taken him into music and architecture, and he spent quite some time living in Spain. You can read about him and listen to some of his music here.
He did a wonderful soundtrack to the Bee-man of Orn DVD, and, being tall and rangy, he was the ideal person to model for Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln and his Boys.
I'll post a shot of the portrait when it's finished.
