Had to figure out a way to make my daughter laugh through her shyness during a photoshoot earlier this summer for a fashion brand, and the only thing that came to mind was a silly game called Owlies 🦉...I bet a lot of you can remember how that goes!?
Anyway it worked and that day became one of the best unofficial photo shoot days ever, and thanks to @Njide behind the 📸 we got some priceless shots. 
Remember, If all seems lost and blurry, just bring out the Owlies.🦉koo? 🙌

“Don't gain the world and lose your soul; wisdom is better than silver or gold”
~ Bob Marley
This is a paper sculpture of a fools gold nugget I made a few years ago about the meaning of value to us as humans, as it is all too easy to forget what really matters in the whirlwind of temptation 🙌

Beautiful beast in a beautiful place. This is one of my favourite photographs from a trip to Sri Lanka back in December 2017. Something totally magical about this combination. Although not a wild horse, it was completely unexpected as my wife, daughter and I walked up into the hills of a Tea plantation one hot humid afternoon. 
Am going to have this printed super size and framed for our future home. Reminds me of Henri Rousseau’s Tiger in the Jungle painting. 
Stunning!

”You wanna fly, you gotta give up the shit that weighs you down!”
Toni Morrison, was and always will be an inspiration to millions of people worldwide. A Nobel prize winner, groundbreaking novelist, teacher and professor emeritus at Princeton University. Her powerful literature dug deep into the exploration of American history, race and the human condition. 
I learnt a lot about her when I was commissioned to do this illustration of her a few years ago.
Rest in peace🙏

A recent piece of work made for Dutch waste recycling company Renewi. These people turn just about any form of waste into something viable. Remarkable, and was a pleasure to make this tiny architectural paper model for them 🙌

February this year, I decided to enter the same prestigious self portrait competition 
I had attempted nearly 10 years ago, with no prevail. 
That self portrait was a colourful and fragmented profile of my face signifying my 
lack of confidence and identity, both personally and professionally. (You can see that painting further down my insta feed)
This self portrait here though, is a very different manifestation all together. 
It’s about strength, confidence and vulnerability. 
My wife recommended I look at the paintings of St.Sebastian by both Guido Reni and 
Caravaggio, as they showed such beautiful humanity. 
She also advised I step out of my comfort zone and attempt a classic style of painting, 
on canvas! 
I much prefer painting on paper and giving everything a black outline akin to my style 
of illustration. I’d never painted anything like this before, let alone painting it on canvas!
Despite my apprehension though, I took the challenge.
My identity is certainly clearer to me now since my last self portrait, confidence is present
in abundance now where it badly lacked back then.
I felt It was still as important to me to try and acknowledge my weaknesses as well as 
my strengths, and show this on canvas somehow.
Too much emphasis on one aspect of our personality seems like being inauthentic.
Until recently I had always hated asking anyone for help, the idea crippled me.
This was probably a mechanism to avoid exposing my vulnerability, but oh how things 
can change simply by opening up to the world and accepting who we are.
Perception it seems is the only thing standing in the way of our realisation that, in fact, 
we are all ‘perfect, whole and complete’.
In essence, it’s a total waste of our time to doubt ourselves!
Thanks to all the magical people I surround myself with, you’re more valuable to me
then I’ll ever be able to express. 
Most of all, thanks goes to my wife @njide for inspiring me and enabling me to become 
the person I am today🙌

Some plastic waste sculptures we made with the excellent kids at St.Winefrides primary school in East London last month. They’re such bright and engaged kids it was a total pleasure to see so much potential for the future, the guardians of the planet. Thank you @angieg103 for inviting us back.

Happy Saturday everyone!!!🙌 Found this banana plant painting in my archive draws and it was painted around the time I married my wife @njide back in 2017. This kind of lush tropical growth is what stirs my soul the most. No idea why, and although this is just a simple isolated illustration, I always come back to the same source for inspiration. Supporting growth in our lives is important, which is why our connection with nature is so vital🌴🌴🌴

Hands can be the most challenging part of the human anatomy to paint and even though I’m only showing half a hand in my self portrait here, it’s been the cause of much concern, until now!
Lost count how many times I repainted it. The angle of the hand, the skin tone and light exposure fooled me repeatedly🙄
.
“The human hand has been at the center of visual art history not just as the main tool of creation, but also as an important focus of representation, revealing the development of artistic skills and cultural trends in key periods.”

#3 in a series of paintings called ‘Paradise’
🌴
What’s your idea of paradise?
Since a boy I’ve always fantasised about tropical islands packed with lush plants, prehistoric ferns, waterfalls, lagoons, exotic birds and animals, untouched beaches with palm trees spilling over giant boulders surrounded by crystal clear waters…and it being just me and the abundant nature existing there. I loved drawing what my idea of paradise might look like and would fall asleep in my ‘Jungle book’ themed bed sheets LOL dreaming about that place.
Cute that might sound, my vision of paradise has never changed and it’s always been present in my work in one form or another 🌴
Exercising your imagination is important, almost as important as staying connected to Mother Nature.
After all, it’s where we all came from! 🌴

#2 in a new series of paintings called ‘Paradise’ 🌴
It’s impossible to deny our human instincts, our need, to return to nature.
In the 1800’s, the Victorians brought about a ‘public park movement’ which sprang mainly out of a desire to improve health in the over-crowded conditions of rapidly growing industrial towns. 
Although the Victorians listened to their humanity by creating such beautiful and much needed inner city parks to facilitate this, somehow it’s never been quite enough.
In religion, paradise is a place of exceptional happiness and delight, often compared to the miseries of human civilisation. In cosmological contexts 'paradise' describes the world before it was tainted by evil.
As an artist I’m heavily drawn to the concept of escapism and our search for ’paradise’.
It is prudent however to remind ourselves that the mind itself is a universe of possibility that has the power to make a heaven of hell, and a hell of heaven!

Happy Monday everyone! Mondays get a pretty bad reputation for being unproductive. I can’t lie, Monday’s are my least favourite and least productive day too! But since 
starting a new self portrait it’s been getting me out of bed in the mornings, even on Mondays! This one is inspired by the paintings of St.Sebastian by Caravaggio and Guido Reni, showing strength, confidence and vulnerability. As you can see, there are many stages of building a portrait and the process is time consuming, but I’ve promised myself I will finish this piece no matter how unproductive I’m feeling 🙌

Good morning all!
I got itchy feet and started the other two from the ’Paradise’ series over the weekend. I don’t usually do this but I desperately wanted to see how they look together. Although they are far from finished, the 1st draft always gives me enough to see what’s happening. 
So excited to to continue! 🙌

Work in progress, 1 of 3 paintings about what escapism means to us and why. Base lines and colour in, now for the real work to commence. Toning, shading, embellishing, balancing & finishing. Am trying hard to get all three done in double time to try and force myself to let go and not scrutinise, procrastinate and stagnate.
The week we’ve had at The Colour Of Water @the_colour_of_water has been extraordinary and fast paced. I like this way of being so am encouraging this energy into my personal work🙌

Sometimes you need to also inspire yourself, because if you don’t, you can’t fully inspire others. The same goes for love, if you don’t love yourself, you’re not fully capable of loving others. 
Last night was the first time in a while I made artwork just because I wanted to and not because it had to have a function. Can’t wait to do more! 🙌🏼

LOVE these pictures courtesy of the Central St.Martins Fashion Foundation team @chrisdesignkelly @katiefrade for our collaborative Colour Theory workshop. Was an honour to represent @the_colour_of_water for this project recently as it became an integral part of the students curriculum about material choices and plastic up-cycling. 
While it’s an undeniably beautiful array of colourful man made objects, 
It’s important to understand the power of choice as consumers. 
Choose wisely and choose products that LAST! That being said, I still believe that most products you don’t intend to use more than once should be perishable/biodegradable/recyclable. If they aren’t...don’t buy them🙏🏼it only validates the manufactures argument that it’s about customer demand, when we all know this is untrue. Unequivocally untrue!
The age of single use plastics is over and so is the attitude that waste is acceptable✖️

This is how I look when I think about doing another self portrait 10 or so years since my last.
I’m not sure at all what is going to manifest. Am a changed man a decade later, sure, but life doesn’t get any easier! 
It might seem inconsequential to many of you but as I prepare to enter the same self-portrait show I entered 10 years back…I’m both excited to see what I make of myself now as well as terrified of my new found ability to deliver the hard pill of honesty.
Like last time, couldn’t care less if I get selected or not, because entering is purely there to ignite a new challenge.
I’m prepared to accept what I’ve achieved as a professional artist, 100%, but it’s human nature to entertain the darker side of ourselves a little more. 
I’ve got until April to dig out as much ‘Andrew MacGregor’ as I can and put it on to paper, my medium of choice!
I’m going large and unapologetic this time!
Can’t wait…yet also a bit scared lol😆

Thought I’d share these Christmassy looking images I created recently with @wearewilma @thecommsstore @ellenemahoney & @alissa_kw for @alinkajewellery for their latest brand promotion via Instagram. 
The set was created using special Elf dust, sturdy Reindeer cheer & plenty of Fairy spells. 
Thank you Santa for providing us with these magical things 🙏🏼

Apparently the weatherman says it gonna be a cold rainy weekend, but as Ethel Waters once said;
“I don't care what the weatherman says
When the weatherman says it's raining,
You'll never hear me complaining,
I'm certain the sun will shine”

Whatever you’re up to this weekend its probably time to pull out your knitwear.

Apparently the weatherman says it gonna be a cold rainy weekend, but as Ethel Waters once said; “I don't care what the weatherman says When the weatherman says it's raining, You'll never hear me complaining, I'm certain the sun will shine” ~ Whatever you’re up to this weekend its probably time to pull out your knitwear.

Part 2 of our educate and inspire program at The Colour Of Water brings us to UAL Central St.Martins to hold a creative workshop about colour theory and up-cycling unwanted, non recyclable plastic waste.
This here is one of three colour combination mood boards looking at combining spot colours with black. From this I’ll be making a sculpture from found plastic containers and such to show the students during the workshop. Inspire a change of consciousness at source and you begin to change the future 🙌🏼

Each gift of nature possessing its own radiant energy, bound together by cosmic harmony”

Although this particular piece was made using cut flowers and foliage within a man made frame...every time I work with natural/living materials it enriches and validates my profession for me that much further 🙌🏼

“You’re standing on the threshold of success!...don’t look down now, it’ll make you dizzy. Boy are they in for a surprise!”
~ Timothy Q. Mouse (Dumbo 1941) 
Powerful quote from one of Disney’s best loved stories. It feels so poignant to connect with this part of the story now that the ‘Elephant In The Room’ project, hosted by www.thecolourofwater.co.uk, is so close to take off after months of dedicated work by our incredible team. 
There is always room for more however and we’re currently looking for some skilled help in building a social media campaign for the project.
If you want to get involved or simply want to know more, get in touch!

Some test illustration colour washes for a men’s fashion promo. Sometimes it’s nice to paint over what you’ve done without being sensitive about the result. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, both results are as valuable as each other🙌🏼✨

Sometimes spontaneity can create very special results, and when professional screen printers offer you the chance to do a 4 way collaboration you don’t turn it down. We all drew some stuff and made some marks on acetate, exposed the screen straight away and bashed out some brilliant primary colour layers together. The beautiful imperfections and visual textures came out guns blazing! Great session with great company🤙🏼

Was hard to look at this while visiting Battersea waste plant last week. 
Until recently we used to get through 500 million plastic bags every week in the UK – amounting to billions of bags and thousands of tonnes of plastic every year. Sadly, each bag will take between 500 and 1,000 years to decompose in landfill. However, since the introduction of the 5p bag, usage has dropped by a staggering 85%. A win for Mother Earth.
Humans now buy a million plastic bottles a minute. Most of this plastic ends up in the ocean. By 2050, the ocean will contain more plastic by weight than fish.
Crazy stats to digest!...this is exactly why we at The Colour Of Water are doing what we’re doing to help change this🙌🏽
