Seattle and LA

Keppie and I spent this last week in LA and the week before we were in Seattle. We went to Sasquatch for a day, which made me feel very old... but we did get to see LCD Soundsystem and Massive Attack, which was fun. Anyway, I made a few drawings on the trip... of our trip.
View from our first room at the Moore Hotel in Seattle.
After the music festival we came back to the Moore but had a different room, with a view of the bay and the weirdest parking lot.
 I don't know what the deal is with running highways right along beaches in the states, but its ugly. I sat looking up at the city from Pike Place Market (which is a tourist spot thats actually worth going to) and drew this fellow on a typically gray, cloudy day.

Review on Beautiful Decay


Andre Beato very kindly reviewed my work for Beautiful Decay's blog a few weeks back. Forgot to post it then, but, as I am now in LA and cannot scan drawings and post em for you,.. check it out.

"Fionn McCabe's tongue-in-cheek comic illustrations poke fun at the way art is received today. In “The Whole Thing” he seems to be criticizing the over-analyzing – and sometimes pretentious – art patrons, that can get in the way of artists’ real messages. (Though, ironically, this can only be gleaned by examining his work.) Though his more recent projects are more graphic in nature, his older works prove that he is also deft with more traditional mediums."
