I found a bunch of old, mostly empty aerosol cans that decided I wanted to get rid of when I was cleaning out my studio years ago. I decided to quickly spray something on the outside of the studio and created this dragon. At the moment I'm growing a garden around the studio and the plants pretty much cover the mural so I decided to just paint a flat colour over it. So I've uploaded this photo as a reminder of what once was.
I thought you all might like to see some very early work. Not many pieces remain in my possession from when I first started to paint more seriously. This one was actually a much larger canvas but I cut this piece out from it to keep and frame. In hindsight the parts that were cut off were actually kind of cool, they were Donkey Kong style girders jutting out, framing the rest of the image. Ah well, they are gone now and this is all that remains.
Here's a striped dragon for all of the American visitors to my website. I've noticed that there's about 150 hits a week from the U.S. to this site so hello to you all, whoever you are. Probably just google bots! Speaking of America I probably found Penssylvania to be the favourite state that I visited. Some very welcoming Americans took me kayaking along the Delaware River. Great fun. Thanks.
Here's Barry the Bird, who one day arrived on my doorstep, probably injured by a car and very dazed. He stayed around the house for a few weeks while he was nursed back to health and then off he went. Just came home one day and he was gone!
Who watches Vikings? Did you think Ragnar was going to come back from the dead? Maybe he still will, who knows. Anyways, this old viking here is soon to be on a voyage to a new home. I made two in this series, one was sold about 3 years back but I held on to this one. It's now time to say goodbye though.
Here's a clip I made about 6 years ago when I first started to muck around with video. I made up some animations using photoshop and photos I took from gigs and overlayed them with some regular HD footage. Short song, so it will only take up a minute forty of your precious time.
Here's a Hare I made entirely from pop sticks. A Paddle Pop Leporidae you could say. It's quite fragile though and I continuously have to repair it. Hare repair.
Check out these shots I took in the Valletta Armoury. Various Grandmasters armour and weapons. Some very intricate smithing.
Here's a creature made entirely of scrap wood. This deer would have been a pile of kindling if not for the glue holding it together. I made a skeleton structure on the inside and then glued the wood panels over the top of each other to create the muscle forms. A shout out to my mate Tim for all of the off-cuts he gave me from his furniture making shed :)
The obvious concept here was to build two dragons into a yin-yang style design. I actually had a lot of fun drawing up the diamond scales. Two opposing forces that exist in harmony.
