100 days as dreamscapes


I love to mix my drawings and graphics in with my photography experiments ... these are glimpses into the dream scape of my imagination.

10th anniversary Tree of Life


Yesterpost I was showing you the Tree of Life, the drawing that's been with me for (still finding this bit hard to believe) ten years. I've photoshopped it through a few variations over this time, and to celebrate it's tenth birthday I decided to reinvent one more incarnation for 2017. More vivid, more zingy, the colors are almost an … Continue reading 10th anniversary Tree of Life

tree of life


Life often moves in a spiral motion: I've been here before, haven't you? The view is a little bit different through today's lens but what I see looks distinctly familiar. It feels like no time passed, in so many senses, but the numbers tell me it's approaching 10 years since I drew this.   I remember … Continue reading tree of life

take 5: episode 1, at a crossroads


I was telling you yester-post how I'd reached a crossroads in my reimaginings. Here's the thing: A thing with which you'll be familiar if the kind of art you make has the option to re-wind time.... Merrily trotting along to a certain point and Save; Turn down a figurative side road, Do more stuff, Have an adventure. ....And also Be … Continue reading take 5: episode 1, at a crossroads

take 5: episode 1


Y'know how I've been revisiting my digital art? I've also been rooting through my online galleries. Some of those pieces date back almost a decade, and some still hold up well. But some were looking a bit tired, a bit shabby, or just plain meh. So I archived them away. I've still got most of the images … Continue reading take 5: episode 1

reinvention


My first lesson in silk screen printing at college (a few years ago now) had us making  monochrome collages to transfer to screens. I recently updated my fav image I made for this project, and even after all this time, I love it still. This was one of those precious times when the muse was with me and together we generated … Continue reading reinvention

Pixel Pushing


A while back I was remembering an episode in my life when indulging in messy painty art just wasn't practical. Limited by space constraints, impeded by my environment - a short term let in a flat with a brand new carpet. This coincided with the opportunity to teach myself to Photoshop. Digital cameras were still quite new. It feels like … Continue reading Pixel Pushing

digital art – rewind


In a recent post I was telling you about my early beginnings in digital art. But guess what - turns out there was earlier stuff that I'd totally forgotten about! Pre-dating that by a good couple of years ago or so, there was stuff like this. This is like rooting through the loft space of … Continue reading digital art – rewind

thinking in digital


I got back into art after a long while away from it. Whilst 'grown up life' was busy occupying too much of my time and I pedantically stood in the way of where I wanted to be, I dwelt in a creative famine that lasted for too many years to recall. The thing that brought … Continue reading thinking in digital
