thousand yard stare

Here's a little oddity.

Throwaway stuff really, although there is something I like about it. Started life as a page in my sketchbook which I scanned and used as experimental practice exploring varying combinations of pencil, acrylic and digital painting. I had no plan or idea what might happen just hat I might learn something along the way and get to grips with some new software and techniques.

Should I post this kind of stuff? images have a long life on the internet, will I see it floating around in three years time and think why the f**k did I post that? Who knows? not me that's for sure.

Bye for now.

Secret 7" - my images

It's all done and dusted now so I can post my Secret 7" images.

I went in a more photographic direction with the first which was a D J Shadow cover and then pencil, acrylic and digital painting for a Florence and the Machine cover.

More soon, bye for now.

Studio / Hermitage

Thankfully January was an unusually quiet month, it would have been tough to deal with any major commissions whilst Sarah was in hospital. She's up and about and recovering well now and work has picked up. I am working on a book cover for Scholastic NY, a poster & general artwork for a stage show and a couple of editorials so I will be posting some new stuff soon.

In the meantime here's a few snapshots of my studio where I am holed up for most of the time, gazing longingly out of the window … where real life happens.
