Never been the most ‘vocal’ blogger. However I think I might start an alternate page for general musings and more hypothetical, less visual ideas. Of course this will largely be horror-based, at least to begin with.
Some sketches from whilst I watched The Awakening yesterday. A solid post WW1 english ghost story, if a little unremarkable. (very grey and grim, hence the lack of smiling faces here).
I’ve been doing some cave art studies, becoming quite a fan. Its amazing how well prehistoric man captured the essence of their subjects.
I’ve also found what may well be one of my top 10 images of all time. These handprints from ‘Cueva de las Manos’ (Cave of hands) make for some pretty powerful viewing, both as a demonstration of our desire to communicate and as a memorial to our ancestors.
not really sure about how the composition ended up. hey ho, a fun idea.
Twin Peaks, the only murder that never should have been solved.
Another teaser image, all my projects at the moment are ‘hush-hush’.
I’ll post some self-initiated stuff from tomorrow…
My go at OFF LIFE magazine’s ‘1hr quick draw’ challenge. The topic today was ‘That makes me angry’. Nothing gets to me quite as much as ignorance, living in such an enlightened age I find it so terrible that some people have such narrow, harmful views.
Enough of that though. Check out OFF LIFE, they’re a great publication championing new talents. They sponsored our grad show as well don’t cha know.
Here’s my piece for the current Station Zero exhibition at the Light Grey Art Gallery. Also available in a selection of 3 sizes in their online store. Check it out along with the amazing work my piece is currently rubbing shoulders with.
Super-secret teaser for my ‘Days of Glory’ poster that will be part of Light Grey Art Lab’s Station Zero show on the 19th of July.
A few photos from the Phony Records event: a mixture of art exhibition, sale and live music. A pretty big mixture of things but nevertheless very successful! It was a very fun night.
My list of various talents unfortunately doesn’t included great documentation so I’m nabbing this post from the brilliant marianna. Phony Records y’all!
My piece for the Phony Records show in B’mouth
The self-titled debut album from Stoner-prog-rock duo Castor Black (vocals, lead guitar) and Old-dog (Backing vocals, Theremin, Bass). Allegedly created during a month-long ether fuelled trip, the album is the only work from the duo. They are thought to be working on their follow up in a Guatemalan insane asylum.
Some thumbnail ideas for my piece in the Station Zero show at Light Grey Art Gallery.
At the moment I’m leaning towards something like the far right image. Mixing some classical military aspects into the sci-fi armour, along with a traditional military monument feel so as to tap into the ‘glorious war’ plot of the novel.
