Buttoneyes Birthday

> Buy prints here < This piece, was inspired hugely by news of the upcoming Cabal Cut release of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed and news of a possible anniversary book; It was further inspired by Bethalynne Bajema’s profound love for all of Clive Barker’s works. The painting was originally to be a part of “Featured Creatures”, […]

Seven

A new engraving, 5×7 inches, with the usual really, really tiny details. Seven cubes, seven limbs, seven chains between the cubes, seven chains on her neck… I suppose it would be good for a children’s book on numbers, but I’ll probably end up using it with the other tarot inspired engravings one of these days […]

The Black Ibis Tarot

Bethalynne Bajema, my fiancee, co-conspirator, and occasional collaborator is working on her third eerie and beautiful neo-victorian Tarot deck “The Black Ibis” – and taking a different approach at her deck from the previous two in that she would like to have the deck published in one big run. Being artists, and in this day […]

Steampulp Baba Yaga

“The Magic Hut” I’ve been dying to do a Baba-Yaga themed piece for some time now. I could probably do ten more and still not cover all of her faces or personalities. This one I took a heavy-mechanical and clunky tentacle whipping approach – with the hut trampling trees and tearing the earth and road […]

New Additions

This week, Jim Gebben, an extraordinary photographer from Grand Rapids, who I met during our Artprize run, spent some time taking some fantastic high res photos of my non-imaged works – so, I am not only finally able to offer prints of these, but finally able to offer some more originals as well.

Big Framing Adventure

A little step by step on my night framing of framing till dawn for this large painting, using recycled/upcycled lumber.

Sorry Charlie

He came to the surface world, wondering where all the food had gone, but there were no fish to be found on land; There was however an abundance of two legged meat-things

Red Hand Assemblage

The box has two decorative hinges with a decorative patina on the spine edge if it; The latching mechanism is self-made from another smaller version of these hinges, combined with three solid brass model cannons from a model ship. The latch holds the piece securely shut, but opens easily when you want it to with a slight squeeze of the box and an easy flip of the thumb.

Shades of Things to Come

A month back, I did a cover image for the Gatehouse Gazette, my second cover for them. The Gatehouse Gazette being a black and white publication, with a standard of using line-art for the covers, I decided to do the piece in pen and ink. Though not exactly an expressive and creative masterpiece by any […]

Desert Shadows – Now Available (in my store)

I reached the point where I *wanted* to add “just a little bit more”, but my instincts were telling me that might be detrimental to the cause and I called it “done”… typically, as one learns over thousands of years of banishment to Earth, this is the point where one more brush stroke equals “overworked”…
