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.
Various horizon lines drawn from the window of the 11:30am to London Paddington, going through Bath Spa, Chippenham, Swindon, Didcot Parkway. September 2014.
“Not sure if you have tried drawing on a train, most people are too close for you to study without causing a uncomfortable situation and generally stuff is going passed so quickly outside you need a super fast photographic memory to get it in your brain before you can decide how to represent it on the page. So I decided to go for the horizon, because that goes pass slower and if you miss a bit it doesn’t look too weird if you just join on to the continuation.”.
Having a home holiday and digging around in the files, came across this cutting of when Scenes From The Inside, an anthology comic I was involved with in the ’90’s, got reviewed in the illustrious Comics Journal (kind of a Cahiers du Cinema for picture literature for those unfamiliar).
They talk about my 20 page insert “Kings of the Wild Frontier”, which was a documentation of the final performance piece by Bristol artist, Dan Eastmond.
The Comics Journal had a tough reputation, so being reviewed there and not getting completely mawled by them was quite the thing.
