CREDIT SWIZZ

I've just come to realise that my art - especially the drawings - is posted all over the place on the internet - sometimes not by me. If you've featured me, and credited my name, thank you, I really appreciate the support. X

If you've featured me, but didn't credit the art, please make the effort, it's only polite. ;)

Below: Featured in the FACEBOOK art group ART DREAMS, 700 likes and counting - and they don't even know who did the art! ( Needless to say, it was before I started to trademark everything ).



Update Oct 2014: This piece is to be featured in the West Midlands Open exhibition, at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, in November. Details soon.

ABSTRACT LIFE: RHAPSODY IN BLUE

This spontaneous photo of a street scene ( Floodgate Street, Birmingham, near my studio ) is exactly how I would like my abstract works to look. Simple and uncluttered. At some point I'd like to compile a blog of real-life abstraction from my photographs.

ABSTRACT LIFE: ARACHNOPHOBIA

I'm starting a photography blog soon, dedicated to real-life abstraction. Here's a pic I took yesterday. I was walking through an underpass in my hometown, and noticed that around each light was an enormous, dense spider web. I put my camera up as close as I could, and took a snap. Inadvertently, it looks like I also captured a drug deal going down at the other end!
