Crimson Feather; Final Touch-Ups

Crimson Feather; Final Touch-Ups

I believe I have finished the text for The Littlest Creature—at least the second draft. At the moment I am teaching myself Adobe InDesign CS6 (again, it’s been years since I last used it) so that I can format it for print and digital distribution, as well as make a nice home-bound copy which I can give to friends and family for a final read-over. I want them to have the full experience, so that any comments they might have…

The Journey Awaits (Final)

The Journey Awaits (Final)

Today I finished this illustration. It is exceptionally beautiful, and I consider it to be one of my best.

This is the one I’ve had my knickers tied in knots about for years. It is that which got me through the brutal ride of high-school, and into sane lands beyond. But it also carried me,…

One Big Story

One Big Story

I remember that a great director once said “we only ever make one movie” in our lifetime. The tale remains the same, is universal (monomyth, anyone?). And I realised this myself, in my own art, whilst working a painting for Sharmie yesterday. Since I have let go of The Silver One, my creativity has flourished (apparently listening to “active imagination” visions is a wise thing, as painful as their words may be at times to hear. Though they are also…
