A little Halloween cheer...

Edit: I have released 'Frankie' as a limited run of 10 prints, now available in the Mostlywanted shop. 9x12" plus border for framing, signed, titled and numbered, £50 plus p&p.
After being off sick for awhile i was finally able to get motivated enough to do something creative on sunday! Heres a little portrait painted for Halloween. 'Frankie' is another Giclee mounted on board and varnished, about 12 x 17" and will be available at Fine Grimes 'Eyes Wide Shut' show on 12th Nov, along with the 'All the Devils' piece. Hope everyone has a good Halloween weekend!

Hosting down..

Looks like my webhost- who are usually pretty reliable, have totally screwed up and im left with my portfolio site unavailable! Some of my hosted images for my blogs (ie: here) are also missing. Sorry if youve got here and theres a bunch of gaps where images should be- normal service will be resumed asap!

Edit: Took all day but it looks like theyve sorted things out and everythings running normally again. Phew.

All the Devils...

New piece, with a working title of 'All the Devils' which is a shortened title from the line 'Hell is empty and all the devils are here' from the first act in The Tempest by William Shakespear. The line is carved into the twisting bramble-like roots at the bottom of the picture. The final print will be approx 20x30 inches, hand embellished, dry mounted on board and varnished. I will drop some news when its available to purchase after its been on show. Heres the final piece and some details at about half size.

Mailout progress..

Well that just sucks, i spent way too long doing these cards, finished them up only to discover that i really didnt like the result! My main problem was that the 'air' card was seriously weak in comparison to the others and was just killing everything else. Ive sat here staring at them for so long that ive grown to loathe them- all because of that weak spot.. what a pain in the ass. Anyway, heres the 'Earth / Water' cards together.. back to the drawing board, hopefully i can pull something a bit stronger out of the bag!
