It's been a busy few days.
Along with personal projects and a new commission, i'm editing together a promo for my painting 'Innocence And Experience'. These handsome guys are now for sale at Saatchiart.com online as a limited edition and also as the original painting itself.
I have a strange feeling at the prospect letting these guys go.
You see, spending so much time with them has been a real pleasure. From the first concept which was basically just a line sketch on paper, to refining them with each layer of paint, honing them to be the people in my mind, and trying not to make them look too 'polished' - the concept that these figures are almost dreamlike...almost sculpted from stone, but never quite 'finished, trapped between fantasy and reality.
The blood sweat and tears that went into producing this artwork, however, I feel has been time well spent, and i'm glad you've all been following along the journey with me.
Yup, i'll be sad to see them go, but to be honest if they stay much longer i'm going to have to start charging them rent!
Here's the link for the limited edition. I'm only releasing a 100 of them worldwide, so if you've been following along with their story and they tickle your fancy then treat yourself.
And here's the original painting.
Have a look and a read of their story.
Hope you're having a creative day too!

Phew..can it really have been almost a month since my last post.
The 'black dog' came to visit for a bit, and, well, he always slows me down...but he's back on a leash so I look forward to posting more of my usual drollness.
I had a really surreal dream last night, which put me in mind of this little film I made a few years back. Have a little cuppa and enjoy!
Hope you're having a creative day.
Whit's he up tae noo?
