Glyphics.

Desk.Desk tidied, my mind turned to Egyptian glyphs this last week.

I watched this video about 4 years ago. This was the first meeting and interview between John Anthon West and Laird Scranton. It’s so fortunate that this moment was captured on film. It’s such a meaningful conversation.

Space. Gabrielles commission.

MID

🙂 Recently finished this commission (for Gabrielle). Measuring 360mm X 240mm on A3 paper. Completed from July to August, this is what 100 hours of drawing space looks like!

🙂 Finished this today. Measuring  256mm X 185mm on A4 (250gsm), extra smooth, Bristol board. ❤ It started off as a platonic totem pole but I couldn’t leave it alone. So then it started feeling like I was drawing some exotic spaceship. And now the creative process is complete it looks like a pharaonic, platonic, Chewbacca. 😃

New artwork finished a few days ago. I think it’s taken over a week to do. I just wondered what it would look like. And now I know! I think of these pictures as creative exercises, I love the chance to have to create something different, new space, every time and see ideas evolve. Hopefully they turn into nice pieces of art. Measuring 230mm X 230mm on A3, 200gsm paper.

If you like my work please pass it on. 🙂 ❤

MONOLITH PROJECT

I prized open my third eye and this came out! 🙂 The Monolith Project is where my energies are going at the moment.

I haven’t used colour for about 3 years now, but I must admit I am getting the urge to try and colour some of these in, even if it’s just to see what it looks like. I have a little black book  and on the inside cover I decided not to filter any of my ideas to put down on paper and just let it all flood out onto the paper. Resulting in this image:

MOLESKINE INSIDE COVER

 

It is so relaxing to create these and all sorts of things can be hidden within the images. Everytime my art looks like it has taken a little evoloutionary leap, I often think this is my new style. But I’m learning I always end up incorporating it into all my other styles. So nothing stays the same for too long.

A few days ago I found myself creating one of these images whilst watching English Astronaut Tim Peake emerge from the International Space Station, so I couldn’t resist including them in the picture also.(think where’s Wally!)
