So, this is very much my working notebook direct from the studio, and will show more of the development of new images while they are in progress (WIP). As you will see, I will also add notes to describe any particular processes, ideas or themes I am exploring.
This page and the EXCLUSIVE FREE GALLERY will be the only places to see all my new works as they emerge. The free gallery will also me to show work that frankly would just not get past the rules and regulations of social media. But let's not dwell on that particular issue! And, last but not least, these two pages will allow me to show full width artworks outside that dreaded 9:16 format that most platforms offer. Wow, am I sick of that box.
PLEASE BOOKMARK THESE PAGES IF YOU WANT TO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH THE LATEST ART AS IT EMERGES. AS SAID, MUCH OF IT WILL NOT APPEAR ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND THOSE THAT DO WILL ONLY BE A PARTIAL VIEW DUE TO THE 9:16 FORMAT.
I would love your feedback and any questions!
Peace, love and enjoy the shadows!
WARNING: THIS BLOG & THE EXCLUSIVE FREE GALLERY WILL CONTAIN IMAGES OF PARTIAL NUDITY SO PLEASE AVOID IF THIS IS LIKELY TO OFFEND YOU.
THE GALLERY & BLOG
Posting quite a few today to get this gallery up and running.. Not all are WIP so I have also included them in the FREE GALLERY too.
'PHANTASMA GOTHICA' - New (undressed) ART-BOOK cover-art & DETAIL
Book release is coming soon.
'HADES - THE IRON ANGEL' & DETAIL (WIP)
The following three pieces are good examples of where I am at with the development of a workflow that incorporates A.I. Over the last few months I have worked with various packages but found some of them just too imposing of their own 'look' and 'textures.' I'm sure you know the ones of which I speak. We all end up looking the same. The package I have become more focused on is Dream which a lot of people seem to have found very limited, but I have found it ideal for developing and mutating individual assets that I can then pull together in my work. I never want A.I. to compose a whole image, that never works for me. I want to be able to craft the details and then make them a whole. Dream seems to be ideal for that kind of approach. None of the next three are finished. I will share later stages as they emerge.
'HADES - RIDER' & DETAIL (WIP)
'IRONCLAD' & DETAIL
'TO PROTECT & SERVE' & DETAIL
This another from 'The Metropolis' collection that I mentioned. This one is about a year old and has never seen the light of day before.
'PINK PARADE' & DETAIL
Again from 'THE METROPOLIS'. Loved working with this shocking pink throughout. Colour is going to be a very conscious exploration for me in the coming months.
'THE PEACEKEEPER' & DETAIL
Again from 'The Metropolis' and one of my daughter, Claudia's, favourite pieces!?
'THE MOTHER OF CROWS' & DETAIL
Very much a piece I am working on at the moment. Still a few twists and turns to find with this one but I think it shows promise.
'SALOME' & DETAIL
The first time I have shown this image in public and is amongst my personal favourites. The erotic is something that spices much of my work but I have a body of work emerging, as yet unseen, that I think will go on to be the subject of a new book - it's working title is 'EROS.'
I'll post more of these with time as there are a number of them already completed. Until now I have been unable to show them.
'SALLY SLAUGHTER IN THE OLD QUARTER' & DETAIL
Another example of my more overtly erotic work. This one very much with it's tongue in it's cheek! But the phrase, 'I wouldn't want to meet her down a dark alley,' does seem to apply here.
