‘Chasca’ - For the 'Pixel Portraits’ show opening on 15th Nov at Strychnin Gallery in Berlin. I think this is the first show ive seen thats all digital artists (im generally the one digital painter in among a whole exhibition of amazing traditional artists!), really looking forward to seeing what the other guys come up with!
This piece is my take on the beautiful Inca goddess of the dawn and twilight, Chasca. (google her if you want to find out more) Shes available from the gallery, get in touch for pricing etc.
Tom Bagshaw, master of the mysterious, has slowly (and slightly in secret) been working on a new series of darker and occult themed portraits (from over 800 user submissions on Instagram) entitled, “The Black Lodge” which will be released tomorrow, August 1st, 2014 for purchase as well as grouped together in an impressive collectors book.
Etymology: of uncertain origin. Possibly from Middle English eldrich, from earlier elrich, equivalent to Old English el- (or Elf), “foreign, strange, other” + rīċe, “realm, kingdom”; hence “of a strange country, pertaining to the Otherworld” or “Fairyland”; compare Old English ellende, “in a foreign land, exiled” (compare German Elend, “penury, distress” and Dutch ellende, “misery”), Runic Norse alja-markir, “foreigner”.
‘Lullaby’ is my contribution to the Pisma Collectives 'Milk’ group show at Fine Grime gallery in Bath. She is a one off digital painting, 16x20", printed on cotton rag stock, mounted on board, hand embellished with acrylic, varnished and framed. Show starts on the 9th November at Walcot Chapel in Bath, UK. I will post up more info about the show together with the flyer later. - Fine Grime Gallery / Prisma Artist Collective
‘Shadowplay’- a recent bookcover commission for Angry Robot books. Shadowplay is the sequal to Laura Lams 'Pantomime’ (another cover i got to do last year) and like the first, was a great project to work on- its always a pleasure to work with authors, editors or directors who know what they want but are also happy to let the artist do their thing.
