Independent Oxford

My work features in the Arts section of today's Independent newspaper, illustrating an article about ‘Anyone Can Play Guitar’, Jon Spira’s documentary on the music scene in Oxford.

The illustration lays the principal bands (Radiohead, Foals, Ride, Supergrass and The Candyskins) across a simplified road map of the area - alongside local landmarks.

Having been a teenager in the 90s it was nice to have the chance to sketch some of these bands – notably Ride whose music I worshipped and whose faces also adorned my GCSE sketchbook. This is as good a chance as any, I guess, to post one of their songs....
