Here is where I post up my latest images. I then let them percolate for some time before determining which ones make it onto my website proper.

Keep scrolling for some undiluted brain purge, or skip to the portfolio tab above for some crystal clear, naturally filtered imagination.

Happy Star Wars day!

Happy Star Wars day everybody! While the Skywalker saga may be over (for now), Star Wars seems to be going from strength to strength with the Clone Wars and The Mandalorian. I hope they can forge ahead with the Kenobi story and keep building on these myths. Wherever you are, stay indoors, stay safe and […]

Icy of Thieves

Sea of thieves came into my life 2 years ago and singlehandedly* put an end any time I had set aside for creative ventures. It's a spectacular piece of work, one of the most beautiful looking games I've ever had the honour of playing, and a disgraceful amount of fun. While sailing the Sea Of […]

Bonnie and Blythe

Well, my new years resolution to be more creative this year has gotten off to a bad start. Nothing like a global pandemic to quash ones creativity. Anyway, the show must go on... Last summer I was doodling hot rods and slowly struck upon the idea of depicting a modern day Bonnie and Clyde. Using […]

For Mankind

There is no way for me to articulate the awe I have for those involved in Mankind's greatest voyage to date, so I'm just going to steal a quote from Carl Sagan. 'Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale […]

Gentle Giant

Peter Mayhew has passed away a few weeks shy of his 75th birthday. Despite being covered from head to foot in order to portray a walking carpet, his shuffling gait delivered more character than many of the million dollar digital creations of modern sci-fi movies. He helped bring the Fuzzball, The Beast, The Mighty Chewbacca, […]

Rave In Peace

The Prodigy defined an era in my life. Voodoo People, Poison and No Good Start the Dance were staples on every mix-tape I made, I queued at midnight to buy the Fat of the Land CD, we blasted Firestarter out of our first car's stereos, and they were touring festivals throughout my late teens and […]

What horse?

As my Red Dead 2 inspired rediscovery of all things 'wild west' continues, I have been reading up on the wagon-trains that would cross America on the Oregon trail. It seems such a wild notion now to be able to pack all your belongings into a box and head out into a largely unknown land, […]

Cowboy Bar Brawl

Lets guess what game I've been playing? That's right! Pokemo- no. Clearly. Red Dead Redemption 2. And its magnificent. I'm as happy as a pig in poop just ambling down Big Valley or along the precarious trails in the Grizzlies. I've always loved a good western. The idea of a wild and unexplored world is […]

Watch this!

Catching up and keeping pace with the late Terry Pratchett's Discworld books since the early nineties resulted in this world has being a constant source of inspiration for well over 20 years. Aware that Narrativia were casting a watchful eye over the future of the Discworld franchise, I've been cautiously confident that any further instalments will […]

Christmas, the coldest place to hide

Once again the might Last Exit To Nowhere had me back to produce their Christmas (or other seasonal excuse for a holiday) cards. This year it was time for collective favourite, The Thing, to inspire a set of Little MacReady cards. As always, the cards are beautifully printed and well worth sending to your favourite […]

Not aliens... yet.

Today NASA announced that they've found organic matter under an ancient lake bed on Mars, a strong indicator that the red planet was once home to life. Not bad for a 6yr old little* robot. That is awesome! Bloopy deep boop! I think this picture went a little closer to Pixar's Wall E. than I […]

The return of F3-T7

Many, many moons ago I produced an image of an R2 unit painted in the colours of Boba Fett, and named him F3-7T. Recently I was contacted by Simon Battel of the UK R2D2 builders club. Hi Nick. I found a picture you did of a FETT R2D2 a couple of years ago and I liked […]
