drinking devil three

Encountering devils… again.

These are the second instalment in my collection of the drypoint demons (with wine), destined to become a nice group of coasters featuring original artwork.

Angels are for Christmas; demons, of course, are timeless 😉

This, to date, is the best medium I have found that will just…

To do originals from scratch each time would take far too long for something I am suggesting people to set fire to, but I think they are unique enough to merit the title ‘art’. This is a taster as the blog looks hungry: more detail when I have time. If you are good, I may even tell you how I did it….

drinking devil one

On returning from the desert, and encountering devils….

There’s been a bit of a dearth of artwork around here lately: not a self-imposed abstinence you understand – I have not really been lost in a barren wilderness, I have simply had too many other things to do. Wall-to-wall exhibitions, and the total overhauling of my studio, for a start. The exhibitions have finished now; the studio is still in a state of flux. At some point everything will be beautifully organized, but, mirage-like, this vision seems to recede with the same speed as I approach it. Here, for instance, are my newly painted and installed shelves for the…
