Art is therapy to me. Instead of telling someone they are full of ##it I will draw it. This is for all those people you know who tell you one thing then go do another. It doesn't make them bad, just full of ##it.
Rather than upset any delicate art lovers out there I decided to put a little sticker on it. An idea I nabbed from someone I met at the Gloucester Paint Jam a few weeks ago and has since become one of my favourite artists, you should check out Skeleton Cardboard.
I've added a few 'in progress' shots cus I know you guys like them. Share, like and Tweet if you can, I'd really appreciate it and if you haven't already please sign up for my newsletter.
The Hyperlapse app is pretty cool. Look what I did.
Three new worms have just been added to the Korp store but be quick, one has already sold.
Over the years the Korpworms have mutated several times, most notably when they grew arms. This year they have started growing feathers from their heads. Are they ears or just plumage to distract you from their pitted faces and dark eyes?
These two have continued my recent preference to draw on long canvases so I can really show off the feathers. Both are now available in the shop.

I did an animated GIF of this bottle a few weeks ago but in order to get in on Instagram I needed a photo of it so I launched the Moldiv app. The app store is full of collage apps but Moldiv is the best one I've found. It has lots of free templates and cool fonts so you don't have to spend money to make your collages look good.
Anyway this bottle is based on a Pink Floyd lyric that goes "The pie in the sky turned out to be miles too high" which to me sounds like a reference to God and is certainly how I'm feeling at the moment. As usual it is for sale and it's only the second bottle I've painted (the first one was for Head Hairdressing in South Sea which I don't think I've ever blogged about). Hope you like it, Tweet and share if you do. Thanks.
Usually I like to get to a paint jam not knowing what I'm going to paint. I have a list of default characters and techniques that I use depending on how I feel on the day. The reason I do this is because a couple of years ago I turned up at Upfest with a giant stencil that had taken 90 hours to cut but because of the wind and rain I never had a chance to put it up. This was highly demotivating and I struggled for the rest of the day with what to paint. In the end I went with a simple character that I'd drawn years ago (that was exhibited and sold at Canary Wharf), you can check the photos here but as days out painting go it was a bit of a let down. Anyway I figured I need to get some ideas down on paper for City of Colours so I can hit the ground running (rather than turning up and staring at a big white board for an hour). Here is what I've come up with so far...let me know if I've over done it.
I've been working hard over the last few days to give my website a little make over. New stuff includes some donate buttons for Paypal and Bitcoin in case anyone feels like patronising me. A store page so you can browse and buy directly from me which involved a lot of work in the background to get the structure, payment details, shipping details, returns policies in place but it's all done now so I can start adding products which I promise I'll do soon.
Big thanks to Adam Reeves for taking a great photo of me for the website banner, why not give him a follow on Flickr.
