New Surrealist Artwork

66 Years On Armageddon Road and We Haven't Learned A Thing or Hiroshima Nagasaki Mon Amour En Morte

This image could also be under the military images. I am very anti-war but support our soldiers and their fight to protect freedom where they are fighting. War in general though has generally proved useless and in the middle east especially so. However this image is in relation to man's constant striving towards a more total destruction and the blind way that we keep creating new ways to kill each other instead of working on getting along together. The other odd thing about this was that I arrived in Japan on the anniversary of the Hiroshima/Nagasaki Bombings and we were flying over Hiroshima and I got a chill thinking that it was probably very like the view on the day it happened. Finally this is not anti-american or anti anything other than self destruction of our species via dangerous weapons and technology.

Angels Eggs Spawn Free Will In Parallel Universes As The All Seeing Eyes
Cries With Joy And Sorrow

This is my latest painting, I worked out what I wanted in Photshop (See Below). It is about the duality of the soul and that we all come from the same genetic material, good or bad come from our experiences and inclination, is temperament learned or intrinsic to our being.
Pretentious Moi?

This Was the prototype for my latest painting, I worked out what I wanted in Photoshop before adding any details to the actual oil painting. Which saved a lot of time and distress.

Below is another example of the above, using photoshop to get an idea and improve on it before commiting to "real" media.

Head In The Clouds, Feet On The Ground

The above image came into my head while listening to the late great Poly Styrene's Last CD "Generation Indigo", it has a line about having your head in the clouds and your feet on the ground and this nightmare image flashed into my head so strong, that I had to pull over and sketch it before it was gone. The response to this has been everything from horror to outright laughter, I like that.

This is the version I have painted, it is done in accrylics, oils and ink. It is still a work in progress and the idea feels as if it is almost becoming political, blind authority, corruption and decay. I am working on her children and will upload those sketches too before loading the final image. It goes without saying that I will dedicate this image to Poly Styrene and The X-Ray Spex, Love you guys and miss you Poly x.

She Would Charm The Creatures Of Land Air And Sea
This is the prototype for painting number three of my latest burst of creativity. Can't wait to get it on canvas.
The above image has now changed again and this image below is now the final version, until it is done in oils.

I Tried To Run But Was Turned To Stone By The Tiger Print Elephant Eclipse With Mayans And Minge

                                         This is just the initial sketch but I am itching to paint it !

Ectoplasmic Elephant Breach In A Southern Sunset With Confused Birds And Relaxing Dieties

This is a creature looking for a painting to be in, Working on it lol

Above are some more of my currently homeless art creatures

This is a sketch of a strange seventies nightmare I had as a teenager

This is my Whalephant, I only have the idea for this creature at the moment, but I am working on a home place for it in a setting or scene.

These are my elephflies and Giraffe Moths also waiting for a nice jungle setting I think
