Seriously though, this is the most bonkers insane machine I have ever watched
Beauty in precision. Absolutely mesmerising.
I saw this netsuke of the Japanese thunder deity Raijin (a.k.a. Raiden in the west) at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and I instantly fell in love. I painted a little homage showing his slightly more elemental aspect last week.
P.S. the second image shows the painting at the size I actually work, for a bit of added interest.
Nice rocky beach, Devonian slate in all its colourful glory.
As many of you will know, I paint pictures. But an important part of painting is going out and experiencing environments, I usually take a few photographs just for reference if I’m somewhere especially nice. These turned out pretty good I think.

My revamped website.
So today as part of my upcoming “make 2014 awesome” plan, I revamped and updated my website. I’d love it if you’d take a look and tell me what you think.
But I also have a question. I’ve been considering the merits on setting up an online shop for my stuff printed as various different products. But knowing that you can’t really rely on passing trade for things like that, I’m inclined to ask: Do any of you lovely people actually feel the need to own anything I’ve produced? Would a shop with my stuff in it be something you’d like to see?
