With the announcement of new material from Elbow, I thought it’d be a good time to revisit the drawings I made during a week long residency at Blueprint Studios, Salford. This is where the band rehearse and indeed were starting to record material destined for the new album. I was made very welcome (the band apologised for disturbing me!) and their management have kindly allowed me to make available a limited number of prints of four of the drawings I did in ‘The Big Room’, for sale.
If you’d like to buy signed prints, or the original drawings, contact me via the contact form.
Reportage sketching of live and recording musicians, in their own habitat, has its challenges. Often working in the dark, perhaps stood on a chair, the subjects are rarely still. Yet Caroline manages to communicate something other than you’d find in a photo. This set includes images going back as far as 1966!
