Years ago I was still painting traditional watercolours. Since the use of digital technology I stopped painting traditionally. While looking through some of my old scanned in work I found this painting that I done for a friend. I like it, still, so much that it may kick my arse into gear to do some more. We shall see, eh!

Harmony by Ricardo Cabello

Ricardo Cabello is a designer/developer that likes to play with the possibilities of the web. One of his creations is Harmony. With this simple interface you can sketch in a very free and relaxing way. Have a go.

Peter Blaskovic

Peter Blaskovic is a 3D animator and designer, from Slovakia. Instead of me rabbitting on about how cool he is, just check his website out at escapemotions. If you go to his EXPERIMENTS section, you will find alot of art/design/physics java interfaces to play with. Peter calls them 'SANDBOXES'. I wonder why? ;-)

Ai and Logo Design

From 1988 - 1992 I was on an art course. When I left, I worked for a creative consultant designing advertising for the Arts. I used Adobe Illustrator (Ai) and Photoshop (Ps). In 1994, I got a new job which used Ps, but not Ai. 15 years later, I was made redundant, and I trained myself up again with the current Ai. Hard going! As an incentive to learn Ai properly I began designing logo's online.

The Magician

Years ago I drew by hand (pencil/Rotring) a complete Tarot Card set. It was my art student days so that was acceptable I suppose. Last week I scanned in the lineart for one of the Major Arcana and went Pshop crazy with it to see the final effect. I had a lorra fun.

I have finally deduced and created a blog-device. Hoorah! I will use this as a visual diary for my illustration artwork and graphic design. And if I have time, maybe also a few walkthroughs of my creation process, once every so often. But first things first....
