CollagesHave been making a lot of surreal digital collages lately and am seriously thinking of printing some of them. A couple would look good framed and someone suggested I get them printed as an art book! What do you think? The perennial artists question Are they good enough?"
Making this sort of art takes my mind of things and helps with depression...there is something about losing your self in an image you are creating. This is especially true for this week which has been awful to say the least!
If no one gets bored with these images I will keep posting them and would love to hear how you interpret them! Usually I have no clue!!
In the early stages of planning a photoshoot based on the Peter Greenway film "The Pillow book". Excited by the prospect, mainly because I get to work with talented make up artists . The whole theme looks at the body as art, and how they merge.
Been working on developing my photography skills, and am having a great time. I have included a B/W noir style that I took recently. The MUA and I decided to paint the lace on, and it worked out well.
Art and meaning?It is fun, if a little disconcerting when I am asked what do my images represent. Sometimes the answer is "I have no idea!" I like my images to allow you, the viewer, to interpret as you like!
What do you see in them?
DepressionWell, I have made it a year since I was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. It has been hard, especially the treatments but I made it. The worst thing is the periods when I am almost swamped by depression. It is almost a physical thing, I can feel it seep in and poison my mood and resilience. Sometimes it has gotten to the point that I start to think about giving up. That scares me, because it seems the easy way out. I can usually break out of these moods but it can be hard. I think even the art I make is influenced by depression. Its worse because I sometimes can't understand why people like my images, I often think that they are false and error ridden.
Sorry to bring you down, if you have read this.
Take care and enjoy the beautiful things in your life.
Devious Journal EntryIt has been a while since I have used Deviantart, almost a year. The reason is that I went into hospital last October and was diagnosed with advanced cool-rectal cancer. It has been a hard and harrowing time since then, and I haven't had the energy to do much art, let alone visit here. But slowly overtime I have started to get better, Chemotherapy is going to be a long process, but the cancers are responding well to the treatment. I have started to do more- photography, pen and ink drawings and using coloured pencil. It has been a relief to be able to draw and create again and I look forward to immersing myself in all your wonderful art. I will start posting things again shortly.
Exquisite corpseI have long been fascinated by surrealism, and in particular their use of the "Exquisite Corpse" concept. Here one artist would start an image and then cover most of the image, and let another artist complete it based on what they can see. There are some amazing groups here on DeviantArt that explore this concept.
What I would like to do is work with artists in a collage based version, preferably digital. One of use would start, and let the other complete it. The results can be unpredictable, quirky and often very profound.
If you are interested please contact me and we will go from there!
Reflections on art!This is not me complaining about a lack of interest in the images I make, or envious of the success of others; but I can't get over the fact that the more successful images (especially in 3d art) are the ones with scantily clad attractive women. There doesn't seem to be that much originality from what I have observed.
also, whatever happened to storytelling? Some of my favourite images are those that seem to tell a story, you get the sense that a lot is/has happened. I try to include a sense of narrative in my work...
Stolen artHey guys
you need to check out this Facebook page and see if any of your art has been stolen.
Some seems familiar!
Space station challengeNow this is going to be a challenge. Have been asked to model and texture a scifi space station...the sort that has the interior given over to landscapes ect. Think of a series of tubes! The modelling is sort of easy...textures on the other hand...! I will post a screen shot of what I have done so far shortly!

Alright, revealing the next reviewOkay, since it has been awhile since the last time that I posted a review - three weeks at this time - I thought that I'd reveal the next reviewer. It's coming up soon. If you're wondering if it's the big secret thing I was planning; no, that kind of fell through. It sucks, but sometimes that happens. Ideas don't always pan out. There's not much you can do about that. When you've got a ton of ideas. Not all of them are going to work out. I don't want to spoil exactly what that was, as I might be able to refine that idea later on.
So... the next animated atrocities review will be...
Fame and Misfortune... yes, that one from Friendship is Magic season seven.
Like Legend of Korra, this is another thing that I debated long and hard about wanting to review. Even ignoring that it's a little awkward going back to Friendship is Magic with a negative review after so long, I understand that this is another episode that's... a little controversial within the community. As in,
Cameos?First of all, I would like to apologize to those who had already asked for cameos. Because I couldn't find them, you have to put them here again.
Anyways, please read the rule before comment.
