Artist
If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Drawing, Painting, Sculpture
I am...
Entirely self-taught, never met a teacher I didn't have the abject desire to punch.

Left school at 17 with the words of my Careers Advisor ringing in my ears, "You'll never make a living as an artist!" Eight and a half days later I landed a job drawing comic books and have never stopped painting/drawing/sculpting/writing since.

I've worked as a comic book artist, cartoonist, illustrator, computer game designer; I've written TV scripts, graphic novels and nationally syndicated newspaper comic strips.

These days I'm an early-onset curmudgeon who is only even remotely happy when mired deep in my studio painting and strewn from head to toe with oil paint.
About my artwork
With my large paintings I try to create an atmosphere that resonates like a waking dream or half remembered memory; I want them to be subtly haunting where the figures and landscape possess a presence that I hope will evoke an emotional response from the viewer.

My smaller works are at times more whimsical and often reflect my rather dark sense of humour.
Artists I like
Vellasquez, Ruebens, Picasso, Otto Dix, John Bellany, Steven Campbell, Peter Howson, Peter Doig, Daniel Richter, Miriam Vlaming, Marlene Dumas...many, many others.
Interests
The art and science of painting, storytelling, history, myth, physics.
Centre of the artworld:
Berlin, online, nowhere and everywhere
