Collins returned to performing at the Electric Proms in 2007
Pop star Edwyn Collins will reveal pictures he drew while recovering from a double brain haemorrhage in 2005, at an art exhibition in London.
The 48-year-old singer, best known for hit track A Girl Like You, was inspired by The History Of British Birds.
Collins, who performed at Glastonbury Festival in June, re-discovered his love of art by keeping a diary of his recovery and drawing a bird every day.
The sketches will be displayed at London's Smithfield Gallery in October.
Collins was a leading figure on the alternative Scottish scene in the late 1970s and 1980s, forming his first band, Nu-Sonics, when he was 17.
They became Orange Juice, who briefly broke into the mainstream with Rip It Up in 1983.
He went on to pursue a solo career, making an impact with A Girl Like You, a Top 10 hit in seven countries in 1995.
The Scottish performer suffered two brain haemorrhages in 2005.
He subsequently spent six months in hospital after a surgical scar became infected with the MRSA bug.
Collins released his sixth solo album in September last year.
A BBC documentary, Edwyn Collins: Home Again, following his recovery from illness, was broadcast earlier this year.
