Some recent work

I’ve just designed this for LeicesterShire Learning Networks.
I have also this week designed the Annual Report cover for Leicester charity LASS.

Voodoo krabs?

Pattern Wheel

Here I am getting the hang of patterns and there application as brushes. It means you get wonderful intricate designs, similar to this one.

Foundation Painting

Heres some photos i found of my final show at Oldham techs Foundation art course.
Theres some from different stages of my main piece.
Its 6feet tall.

These are each from different stages so see if you can spot the differences…

At the time I was very interested in religious/spiritual/biological and architectural archetypes.

I was very into the work of Friedensreich Hundertwasser.   He likes to stick all sorts of stuff into his paintings, like eggshells and sand. In this painting, one of the colleges stock of ruined paintbrushes made it in to the piece. There is nothing like mixing paint and PVA.

These were some of many smaller pieces I did. They are full of mud and grass and all sorts of crazy materials.

This photo gives an idea of the paintings size. And is the finished version (what you can see of it).
The big painting is apparently still in the foyer on the wall of Oldham Tech. I havent been there for about 4 or 5 years though.
If you’ve been there recently internet traveller – check it out and let me know?

The obvious problem with 6foot paintings is storage. So to be clear its not like I want it back. Im just intrigues as to its fate.

Loch Goil, Drimsynie and Loch Lomond

At the weekend I visited Loch Goil, in the Argylle region of Scotland. It its a great destination for a photographer, with stacks of dramatic scenes, castles and Lochs. I enjoyed taking some of the photos in moments of darkness, which really seems to bring out the atmosphere… The bottom two are from around Loch Lomond, and the top two from around Loch Goil.

Dive to the Depths of Reason

I painted this today, over the course of three albums. One was an album of ancient and Sumerian music, followed by 2 Hawkwind albums; Church of Hawkwind and Zones, which were very hypnotic at their best.

It is called Dive to the Depths of Reason.

We see a unearthly painter painting upside down on the bottom of a strange sea.
