Testing of my beautiful new Gullor fountain pens and Waterman inks on a portrait of a young Salvador Dali.
Apparently the photograph was taken of Dali by Luis Buñuel around the time of the making of Un Chien Andalou.
One suggestion is that Dali’s father strongly opposed his relationship with his future wife, Gala, he banished him from the family home. Before leaving for Paris to join her, Dali shaved his head and buried the hair at Cadaqués beach.
Painted from a dream as part of the “Postcards From The Other Side Of Sleep” series.
A depiction of politicians talking amongst themselves whilst the people are engulfed.
Original is watercolour on paper.
I have uploaded some paintings done by the Old Me Way Back When onto Society6.
These are from a series I made call Postcards from the Other Side Of Sleep, they were all inspired by dreams I had at the time.
After some research it appeared to me that Society6 seemed like the perfect place for a time strapped part-time artist to get their work out into the world.
All their products are of high quality and I get a little percentage for each sale made.
I will be making some signed prints of these in due course which I will sell directly and therefore get payed slightly more.
In the meantime please take a look at my store on Society6 and if you don’t feel like buying anything but have an account, a few likes here or there would mean the world, raise profile and would be rewarded with kind thoughts.
I have now uploaded a newly scanned and cleaned up version of my webcomic, Horticultural Fudge to this website. It’s all layed out nicely on one page for ease of reading.
It’s a simple wordless story of gardening, flowers and retribution.
A version of this story will be available to buy as a print at the Bristol South Bank Arts Trail next weekend, and in due course, they’ll be available here too.
