Every now and then, in a mindless burst of creativity, I get hold of a canvas and paint something wierd. It helps to ease the rigours of work life and of course its also fun to make a mess...
I have been neglecting my artwork for many years - and after having held exhibitions and been shortlisted for a couple of international comps in the late '90s, this has all been put on the backburner - another victim of the crazed, all-consuming TV production lifestyle.
But in a valiant attempt to start the new year with a stronger sense of purpose, I've actually produced some new work.
Flamebird Rising is one of them. (This is not the best of photos - taken off my low-res mobile - the real thing is far more, erm... real)
