FLIM
A while back now i was contacted by a guy who saw my show ‘Everything Changes’ we got talking about art and music and the blending of the two. /./. His name was Giovanni and i later found out that both he and his band we based in Italy. /. After mutually falling in love with each others craft I ended up doing the artwork for their newest release/. / .FLIM – Time In A Fish Bowl.

Now this week they will be releasing a track for free off the upcoming album, Due date Feb2014./.
Now i urge you to go and give these guys a listen, not just because i’ve done the artwork but because they really are awesome./ ./.

Personal Hygiene .././. The Virus./.

This series started with a fascination of pixelated videos and photos.The idea behind the ‘Virus’ series it takes the effects a virus can have on a computer or program and translates that into human form, like the body has a glitch or error.

Oh Christ. /.Mas. . ./ /.

Blogging wise it has been rather quite here in the build up to xmas, that’s because all of the paintings i was working on were in fact gifts and so obviously i couldn’t publish them. So here is a backlog of paintings. / /./.

The first wave was a fresh new batch of xmas pigeons, this time with a festive slant i have become only slightly obsessed by snow flakes. ./

The second wave of paintings was a set of portraits../. not something you’d associate with me.. and furthermore they were both painted on canvas./. another thing you would not associate with me. It s always a good thing to take my self out of my usual sphere of working, both of the canvases were still reclaimed and recycled and i feel like despite working from photographs i managed to inject plenty of Belbin hallmarks to the pieces.

And the final piece was, given the more soppy themes of my painting the most important as it was for my fiance .. . /
It was based a short story held close to her heart and a running theme though our long relationship ‘The Snow Goose’
