A play of imperfection

My latest piece. As a recovering perfectionist I've decided to take my illustrations in a simpler, looser, and more graphic direction combining hand drawn and computer created elements. I also want to experiment more, go in surreal directions now and then, and I want my work to be full of happy accidents. Oops! That line just veered off the other way. Oh well. I was inspired by the British illustrator Alex Green (link to the left) whose work is strikingly gorgeous. I love, love, love his work. No more striving after perfection. I never attain it anyway.


  1. Interesting to follow your artwork.

  2. I've just read your 'that's the way art is' link and I so agree. In fact the early part in which you felt a trifle gauche in expressing an opinion contrary to what your friend was thinking reminds me so much of me when I was younger. How great we are now older and more sure of our opinions. I also don't like that machine-made kind of art or the pseudo-intellectual pure white canvases. Once I would never have admitted it - these days I say what I think.
