Elbow- The Blueprint Sessions

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.

Live Music!, a set on Flickr.

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!
