The weird and wonderful world of art
March 04 2019 | No Comments |

Bit of a diary update, as I haven't been posting here anywhere near as much as I perhaps should. My life has taken a hard left turn recently personally and professionally - in the space of about a month I've lost a couple of people in my life, as wel [...]

My best kept secret
November 29 2018 | No Comments |

Posting my work to various web sites or even showing it to people around the office, many people don't know or realise that shoot most of the raw material in my images myself. This first came up while I was working on my new image - a wedge tail e [...]

Right now I'm seriously digging the work of Pietro Smurra. His compositing and shading skills are truly next level. It's really a level that I want to take my work to in terms of the scene that surrounds the primary subject of my collages. Looking f [...]

A Taste of Things to Come

This year I'm working on a solo exhibition, tentatively slated for November. The plan is to create a series of these walking mecha cities, exploring the "personality" of each city with iconic imagery and architecture. For each one I'm recording the p [...]

The Societal Myth
September 09 2017 | No Comments |

I've been going through some stuff personally recently, at a time when my workload is bonkers. This comic resonated with me - in my experience there is zero truth in the unhappy artist stereotype: when your unhappy you have no motivation to execute g [...]
