  • GIVEAWAY time! 500k, crazy. Thank you so much for all the support and encouragement and for helping me to make a living doing what I love. I'm going to give away 5 letterpress prints from an upcoming release to five different people (one per winner). All you have to do to enter is like and leave one comment below. Winner will be selected randomly using random.org in 3 days time. Please only leave one comment, leaving multiple will disqualify your entries!

It's been a long journey to get to a point where I can live off of this, 11 years going back to nights spent practicing in my bedroom after school. I still feel like I'm only just getting started and have many years ahead (fingers crossed) of painting. As excited as ever!

  • This all-consuming sensation permeates every pore. It is our birthright, having come too far to be free of responsibility, and yet falling so tragically short of absolution. Enkindled with an ember of self-awareness, we are separated from the ecstatic freedom of the animal mind. We are responsible, cursed and blessed in equal measure. I feel them even now, their tortured screams, shining eyes, pleading voices. The sheer arbitrary cruelty of it all is crushing. This is not my guilt, it is ours. Let it spill out and flood this place, it must be revealed to be overcome.

  • Mitosis. They said it couldn't be done, who can blame them? The thought was almost inconceivable, undesirable, forbidden. It started one gloomy afternoon as an itching of the scalp. Beneath the pulsing waves of a throbbing headache, the sky bruised and oppressive overhead. Followed by a growing presence somewhere in the background. A subterranean intrusion to the dull ache and tired scuttering thoughts, weakly flickering, dimming, until the image was at the forefront. The one, the unitary, the indivisible, dividing. Skin stretching and tearing, agonizingly beautiful. And then, bliss, euphoria, ah! The weight lifted! The pain had been so ever-present it had become invisible, part of the background. Dissolved to reveal sweet radiance. Bone cracking, sinew snapping. The one had become two

  • Dislike that the most recent post of this drawing was censored, let's try again. This is well within IG's guidelines for artistic nudity. Title is "Peace is possible", meant a lot to me at a time where inner peace was lost certainly not something I was feeling, made a lot of progress on that front since.

  • Two new ink originals sent off to @boothgallery , if you want to reserve one send a DM or email asap their way. Swipe to see the scale, was tricky to get that hand right with a dip pen, super fun.

  • Working on my custom edition of the @mooncranepress sculptures. Thanks so much for your patience if you're waiting on these, have to balance this with so many other things atm. It makes me super happy to see most of you have received the prints or tracking numbers. If you're in the small minority that haven't it's possible you're in the second batch that we reprinted due to some minor damage, want everyone's to be mint condition and you'll get them asap!
