I’ve lost count of how many times I have recreated this image;
always starting from scratch, always using the same X-Wing image.
I reckon the truism I wrote would lend itself to all sorts of background images, yet here I am again, back with the X-Wing…
Fate & Destiny
Somebody asked me one day what the difference between Fate and Destiny was….
Another from the recent experimental series ‘parabolic’.
These ‘abstract’ images begin life as real-life photographs, usually of rural scenes and natural objects.
This one is a shoreline in Iceland that is covered in bright yellow moss.
Another feature of the parabolic series is they’re numbered in binary; this is the fifth one to make it off the drawing board.
I like the balance between cartoon and photo that I managed to create with this image.
Again the caption is an attempt to push the storyline beyond the eye-catching image.
Ring Driven Thing 3
Another older image from the Portalic Series.
Most Portalic images began as experiments created with 3D image software like ‘Bryce’
and thence transferred to Photoshop for further experimentation.
Hmm _ The quote might be clever I don’t think there’s enough cartoon effect in this graphic experiment.
The idea behind the captions of these Comicallergy images is to ‘widen the angle’ &or deepen the storyline.
(A comment, if you will, on the shallowness of ‘eye-catching’)
Another World 1
The first image from the Another World Series.
Behind The Truth
This is from the Picture Perfect Poetry Collection.
Somewhere on this blogsite there’s a post in which i ‘wax lyrical’ about humanity heading towards a time when only machines will speak the truth.
This is one of the oldest digital images in my collection
It probably belongs to the Portalic Series, though it still doesn’t have a title!
The Comicallergy Series is inspired by the pop art of Roy Lichtenstein
but there was also a definite commercial purpose behind learning how to create these images.
Another World 2
I have always liked images of other worlds or planetary systems with evidence of life and culture.
This is one of my first attempts to create my own.
Self Destruction was one of the last images created in the Rainbow Series
and now implemented into the inputforcolor logo
For me Life was always about art, philosophy and exploration; seeing how far I could 'push the envelope'. I look back and realise this was true long before I had even recognised it. But, though I can write and compose and build and sculpt in wood stone and metal, the one thing I could never do properly was draw.... until computers provided me with a digital palette and a canvas as well. This page displays a few recent examples, intermixed with some favourite 'oldies'.
