Mr Drury has sent me a photo he was out in the wild with his keen eye and spotted a Tee I did for Super- Superficial in London. Well readers its getting even more chilly I'm sure; I have my scarf on indoors we try and continue. Mine is the orange tee with a dancing policeman on in this photo by the way readers.
Well I'm yet to spot an actual snowman which has been made yet by some youngster or daft adult like me. I've not seen any with this recent weather. I did see a chap try to steal a young lads bike; that back fired on him as about twenty youngsters pelted him with snowballs it was great to watch. It was like a scene from the Beano.

The other week in my dads paper they were celebrating 40 years of page 3; I noticed veteran illustrator Brian Grimwood had some page 3 luvvie round his studio and he'd produced a beautiful pen drawing it was awesome and leapt of the page. How come I don't get them gigs.
Here you go a bit of New work produced for Bolton College which I've completed for there sustainability officer. A little while ago readers; I've found a flat cap I'd forgotten all about, good timing because it's freezing cold. I should stop going for all these haircuts.

Today I went for a haircut, I was gonna discuss with my usual hairdresser how she was getting on with her cycling but she wasn't there sadly to discuss. All the reports indicate there is snow en route. I feel a brew should be en route for me right now at the time of writing.

Here is a little snippet from an image I'm working on; it's not nearly half done it may take me a while to get reet. Looking out the window it's still wet and rainy aswell as getting dark once more. At least there's sunshine indoors.
Hands up who has started there christmas shopping eh! this lad bought a present the other day. Just "Where the David Dickinson has this year gone readers!". Looking out of my window its very wet and it looks cold. The weatherman says there's wind en route from Russia, I've got fish and chips en route.

Well; when I got to check my emails this afternoon, not sure why!; but I received an email with a lovely photo of the gorgeous Heidi Klum promoting her new ladies clothing range for a sports label. Seal your a lucky man indeed. I've just had some lunch we continue.

Also is Jonny Hannah's "Swift Nick"print which is the one there all after at Hornseys see the top photo.

I read in my paper today Quentin Blake has drawn 20 murals for a children's theatre. For the unveiling, he'll be interviewed by lifelong fan Jude Law this saturday at the Unicorn Theatre, London SE1. If I was down London this saturday I'd go meet two of my hero's. Well Jude does play Doctor Watson in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes quite well. I once went and watched Jude in Alfie on my own once. Plus his sister is a good artist.

Today I had an email and in it there was a bit which said "Wot A Man" for some reason this leapt out of the email; just thought I'd share that in the tree of trust with you all. I've been working on a rather splendid image today. But this will have to do you all for today

Well I've been out and got me a copy, cannot believe the boys left me out of the final cover artwork due to my large appendage see above. I'm liking "Eight letters" with the vocals of Mr Orange at the end following Mr Barlow's fine work. But track six makes me smile whilst drawing with a brew.

Well I've managed to pull something in my foot which is is painful off and on. I'm gonna have some of my prints hanging in a new wing of Rudding Park hotel in Harrogate. Lovers, golfers and business folk will happily lay back and possibly admire my work. Meanwhile I'm likely to be eating chicken BBQ wings. This week I've been over to the University of Salford tutoring and learnt david ryan robinson is one talent to watch out for me thinks. He looks like a young Rob Ryan I look like a judge jules wannabe. Just keep drawing lad.

Find me in tomorrow's Guardian Sport section for a small illustration installment by me it's a serious one. I've just learnt Shaun Ryder is going in "I'm a Celebrity, get me out the jungle" or whatever they call it. I once saw Shaun a few years back whilst I was looking at sneakers to buy in manchester.

On Saturday the 6th of November I attended "Out of the Saddle 2" an evening with Russell and Dean Downing at Sitwell Golf club Rotherham; with a host of cycling superstars including Malcolm Elliot; whom I remember watching on Blue Peter as a kid on one show I'm positive?I'm 32 next month if your wondering; Malcolm is how old ?; well he is a veteran but he's still "Got It" and out performs a lot and a real inspiration. The evening was to raise money for the Danny Porter Foundation which raises money for cancer research. The evening was really fun and it raised a heap of money through the auction and a great raffle. It was funny seeing Doug who won the flat screen telly it was a big as him I reckon. One of my limited edition screen prints was auctioned and sport presenter David Harmon snapped it up. Other items included a signed team Sky jersey some mark cavendish kit an Alberto Contador yellow jersey among some super Rapha threads. Big thanks to Adam Tranter from Fusion Media Services Ltd for the photos above.

Well I spend weeks without making public appearances or doing social functions the recluse I am and two functions take place in a week. This made me chuckle a little earlier this cover photograph. I'll get this in before the photos from tonight hit my blog and facebook. I resolved what I was wearing before I saw this photo, I really did. Tonight I'm off for a charity function at Sitwell in Rotherham alongside Dean Downing and his brother Russell Downing among a host of others, it shall be fun times.
Well Thursday night myself and the Wash crew attended the launch night "the Big Bang" to celebrate the completion of the new build Bolton College. It was great seeing my artwork on screens all round the new campus. The new college looks fantastic in design; I would love to have studied in that environment, if I had my student days a second time round.

Well earlier I've done a bit more reading on the redesign of the Savoy in London by John Rushworth from Pentagram. Work began in 2007 and they have gone over the 100 million budget I believe. Maybe one day I'll get to spend a night there eh! or at least have an afternoon tea there with a lady. I did have the pleasure of meeting John a few years back; he's a smashing bloke. I hope I have the pleasure of working with him again.

Good luck gents on growing your tache; I know one of my old mates struggled last year and was pencilling his in with his wife's eyebrow pencil!!!
