Long time no Journal Entry...

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 5, 2013, 6:31 AM




Thought it was about time I said 'Hi' in the Journal and stopped being so antisocial.... seems like I have less and less time nowadays and so this seems the best way to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has been following my work both here and elsewhere.  It has been a very busy year for both artwork and homelife and I am getting used to juggling the two and dividing my time up better - there is less time however for sharing commenting and replying to people here but I WILL, I always do!  
I'm also very pleased to be opening a 2 man exhibition in London tomorrow night - the 6th September where I will be showing some artwork I have shared here on DA and some new works.... there will be new prints and postcard packs available and the work includes the fantastic paintings of Rowan Newton as well as myself and even includes a digitally assembled giclee print especially for the gallery (I know.... me and photoshop.... who'd have thought it)

So if you can ... please make a little trip to see the work at the Ben Oakley Gallery - it is situated inside greenwich market, South London, it's a lovely space and I know you'll get a great welcome there.

Big love to all

I finally found your deviant art page. I first found you on facebook. Your art has been a great inspiration for me for a great while now. Your style and the complexity of your art is truly a great combination.
Each art you create makes me wonder, "How did he made this?" 
Thank you so much for creating impressive artworks :D (I always love it when you zoom in your art to take a closer look on all the details)
