Dream Paintings and Society6

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.

“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.”.

The Comics Journal Review


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.

Fudge

Fudge came along in the early nineties.

His bags were packed and he was ready to move in.

I have so far sketched out around 20 to 30 stories with him in, and they all generally follow a similar pattern.

This first story,  was originally printed in a Slovenian magazine called Stripburger in 1997.

It was heavily influenced by the work of Hundertwasser, Adolf Woelfli and Chris Ware.

He’s a cross between Ted Hughes’ Crow, Hannibal Lecter and Clarence Oddbody.
