This is where it all started, the first band I ever painted live with. I heard The Feeling
on myspace before anyone really knew them. I saw they were playing near my house so I blagged
my way into the venue for sound check. I ended up having dinner with the boys that night before
the gig and a month later they became the first band I painted live. Space was tight so I painted
on the floor, I really didn't know what I was doing at this point because it was all such a new
experience for me. A short time after the gig they released Sewn which hit #7 in the UK charts.
I bumped into Richard and Dan recently, it only seems like yesterday that we did this gig,
time sure does fly. I'll paint with them again soon I'm sure, that'll be interesting to
see what comes out.
