poisonous fly (agaric)

this is part of triptych of 2 other mushroomy men found here. they look like they are all doing a jig, which is always a good thing.

creepy night thing

this kinda freaks me out - i made it to go with 'babbit' for a client, and i resisted this little cat head for so long, but it fitted sooooo well i couldn't not. and now it is just weirding me out!

This work is 14 x 19 cm, on lushy 300 gsm hot-press paper.
You can buy the original artwork here!

all shall perish under my wrath cat

mwaaah ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaaa!

sit tight

hey all,

i am in the process of tidying up all my labels to make them singular rather than plural, and hopefully easier to navigate - this will take a WHILE so bare with me!


bare? bear? hmm ...

sudden flushes of unconcious material

so last night i was asked 'how long does it take you to make one of these?' - it's really hard to say! i think of it liiiike - most pieces i spend days and days and DAYS cutting. I have draws of disembodied figures and objects. it is like i have a vat of thousands of mismatched puzzle pieces from different sets. and so then there is sometimes minutes, hours, days, of trying to get them to fit together. and then, by magic, when they do, it is about a nano-second of fitting joy! sometimes.

other times, like above, there is an idea - i had my many fish, and wanted them to explode out of something - it was about trying to find the right source of the explosion! originally it was a little girl, but she just wasn't right. sometimes it takes longer to compose the image so it is on the right sized white space... other times the image is created alone, and then i find a little white void for it to sit in after. make sense? maybe not ...
