A hand-painted black metal shirt

Photobucket

Diabolical Masquerade was an awesome project. Blackheim from Katatonia (ably assisted on many occasions by Dan Swano) making proggy black metal a la mid-period Borknagar. I'll probably paint a few more shirts over the next couple of days, it's been ages.

Here's how it's going to work.

It is fairly obvious I cannot keep to one update a day. The main current reason for this is the amount of commissioned work I have recieved. So, rather than try and pull something out my arse every day, I'll just post stuff whenever I finish it, so it'll probably end up as more like three or four posts a week (or it may end up being ten! who knows?).

Also, this will be the last ever post with no art content.

Day 5: All sorts of problems.

Sorry about no update yesterday, my internet was out. Whole (local) ISP had gone down for a day for some sort of maintenance. Anyway, I STILL haven't finished the thing I'm working on. Sorry. It is taking ages; also there is a lot of commission stuff (ie. stuff I get paid good money for) that I am doing atm that makes this blog hard work. Here is how far I have got with the current digital piece I am working at atm.

Obviously, it is a digital overpainting of a Vesalius illustration. It is barely even half finished and taking me ages. I am working in 300 dpi, with a mouse, to give you some perspective.

Maybe it will be finished tomorrow? Maybe it won't. Who knows. I will try and have something else for you if it's not.

Day 3 (A little late): A Mere Preview

Sorry chaps. I've been working a lot on commission work, which I can't really post here. The thing I did want to post I was unfortunately unable to finish last night. I will hopefully finish it today. Here is a sneak preview:

Tantalising, no?

To make this post a little more worthwhile I've been digging around on my photobucket for some older stuff to show.

A nice picture of my home town I took.

And some old t-shirt designs. The middle is a ladies shirt, of course.

Day 1 (New Calendar): Lets HIT the FUCKING road!

Okay, back in business again, and now I have a working scanner! YES!

First up, a little bit of sci-fi art.

Geologists...IN SPACE!

Sorry, people, especially you three followers.

I essentially chose the worst time ever to do this. I just moved house, then I went to Wacken Open Air Festival and now I have come back and everything is in boxes. Next Weekend I depart again for Bournemouth. Aieeeee. What I am going to do is build up a buffer of work, sort out my fractured life and then restart this shit wednesday next, and see if we can't seriously do something. If it all falls apart this bad again, well, ok, but if it doesn't, woop.
