it's nearly christmas...!!

...and like everyone else i've got the pre christmas rush on! a last minute 2 day commission, there was the book launch at festival of sins last saturday, a part time job AND christmas shopping!! arrghh!! i am TERRIBLE at keeping this thing updated but i'm all nicely settled into my new home, with internet, so that should get better.

i'm getting ahead of myself!

i'm renting again! i know i know, gave in to the system and what not. but my creativity was suffering and sometimes one has to prioritise.

the book launch! yes, the wonderful people at festival of sins were lovely and held it at their christmas "immorality" event.

no sales, really, but good fun and i was very happy to be there!

also for this event, i created the first "festival of sins colouring-in book" which was handed out free or with a small donation (thankyou to everyone who kept me able to get a drinky!!) and there will hopefully be a good response of coloured images returned, with the best 3 winning a prize! fun fun. here are a couple of the sketches from the book:

so! the graphic novel; it IS available, twelve modest english pound's worth of poetry and imagery goodness! do contact me if you would like one. I am also here going to release (shock horror!!) a double page spread from the book for you to see! i have been purposefully elusive with imagery as i like a surprise but people do like to see what they're buying so i've given in to popular vote and here we are:

i'm sorry to be a bore but i will remind you this image is strictly copyrighted!!

and here's the promo website address for more info:

online buying is not available -yet-; waiting on a technician that the author is dealing with down in somerset, but i will let you know when it is. in the meantime, if you're desperate, contact me, i have paypal! ...there were only 500 printed...

aaaand the two day commission- images of that coming later i'm sure.

anyways, happy festive times, y'all!!

photos from iconography of mask

the event was a great success! and although i couldn't be there as much as i had wanted, i got some cool shots, here's the cream of the cream

Garry Vanderhorne, gallery owner


i would love to remake this shot with better lighting conditions! although i do like the atmosphere, bit more sharpness would be great!

these images are all just quickly edited for facebook haha, a few will be selected for proper editing for large format printing at a later date.

wow, can't believe it's been over a month since i last posted on here. i do have new artworks, but not many, in truth... moving house AGAIN has stumped my drawing temporarily! but there's lots going on, for instance the mask show at the resistance gallery in a couple of weeks, i've made a mask for that:

they have a blogger page:

their event and group pages can also be found on facebook!

here's a creative splurge i believe you havn't seen yet!

steampunk at festival of sins

i rather like steampunk, and bumped into some wonderful specimens of this style at the recent festival of sins, and luckily it was the night i had decided to try my hand at being a club night photographer. with the help of my lovely shiney new ring flash, my humble D40 did ok!

retouching skills

my new job has taught me a lot about retouching photos. here are a couple of quick self portraits i've done recently with my new skills!

the first is using a ring flash hand triggered away from the camera to create the lighting effect. unfortunately it did not belong to me, but i think it will be a worthy investment for the future!

the second is checking out the high pass technique i was recently shown at work. i really like the effect and may make it more of a feature in my photography style!

the third is of my friend sabine, taken in very tricky lighting conditions. i really like the final effect on this photograph.

i don't think my style as it develops will be about creating an entirely natural look. as with my illustration, i want to bring something a little extra to the image to make it interesting. i can save the natural look for the photo studio work!

i also will feature the panoramic format within my work as well.

and i also hope to get time to get out and about photographing other people soon too!
