It’s easier to think that you’re in love than it is to accept that you’re alone”

4 set, stochastic separation (screen print)
Fabriano Disegno 4
50cm x 70cm

Edition of 20

So that I will never make the same mistake again. A reminder of what I had and a reminder of what I’m looking for and what I lost. To record and say that I… we were there.

I was happy even though I should have been sad, and that sadness was all around me. I couldn’t wait to leave and be with her. She’s always “on my mind”.

In a way she changed my life. I had no idea this even existed or what it was called.
She didn’t look real. She looked like she was cut out and pasted in this word and she looked so happy. She said “You’re like something out of a book.” But after all was said and done she declared, “You’re different; I’ll give you that”         

"If you see this girl, tell her I loved the idea of her and that I’m sorry."

Ok I've had this one done for a while but it's taken me a while to find the courage to release it. Its the classic story of boy meets girl.

Then boy makes sticker to find girl again.
Well boy makes lots of stickers
and sticks them everywhere.
that leads to a print (YES it's screen print by hand!)

Just something to prove I'm still trying

Here is some drawing. this year has been one of the hardest for me, but I do keep going some how.
 I've done a print this year, it's all framed up and sat in the corner of the studio I'm just waiting for a show to put it into and I promise I'll put it up here as so as I can!

You don’t forget you just move on

“I reached out but I didn’t find what I was looking for. Just closure. The rest are just memories.”

This is a response. It’s clear that we all respond to life’s challenges in different ways. Some fight death, some embrace its solace, some recognise their fate, some do what’s ever necessary to alter it. Sometimes we defy others expectations and occasionally we rise to meet them. But the constant is being true to ourselves

As things fell apart nobody paid much attention.

Stochastic separations

No I'm not dead, and no the price of your work dose not increase  if they think your dead!

The truth is this is quite the sad peace such a limited edition only 10 of them it's really odd to see Jess in such a distressed way, she's so beautiful in real life, so much so I've never forgot since high school I never really had the confidence to talk to such a pretty girl hence the "flutter of an eyelash" highschool was over and done with before I knew it and then I was in collage bam I was 300 miles away from where I did some of my going up, high school and Jess! we all know what that feels like "only yesterday" as soon as I moved to uni things on the news started appearing about home storys on unimaginable sadness those thoughts never left my mind.

 After uni I was free spent a while thinking should I go back instead I decided to make this print dedicated to the people pay tribute to the sadness move forward with my own life

 I'm really loving the soft focus of this printing method.

been on quite the adventure in lots of art fairs Brighton, London, even Manchester!

"As things fell apart nobody paid much attention"

is a piece about lost hope and an optimistic search for new values, new validations. I wanted to capture the beauty of the most desired girl in my state secondary school, an icon of beauty, then juxtapose it with the tragedy of  a town where I did most of my growing up. My sympathies are deep,
But I know their memories live on.
 The image has been distorted and destroyed with acetone, then printed using stochastic separations. The registration marks are still present in retaliation against the current state of print art. A riposte to the blasé approach where mis-registration, no bleed and `jigsaw puzzle` printing reign supreme.

Stochastic separations

Ok long time no post I've been away bettering my self as a printer and I never accounted for how much time it would take to settle from being out of uni but here is what I've been up to CMYK 4 set

I hope it's what you like.

dreams are fragile

"don't let me fall asleep alone" finished 7 colours 50cm x70cm and it has phosphorescent (glow in the dark) stars.

Whatever you give inevitably takes something away from you, need is never equivalent to love, the price of which is a heavy one. This was a misguided, but sincere attempt to encapsulate an emotion

When I began this print, I felt completely different. What I was trying to achieve with this was a tall order. My motto is ‘dreams are fragile’, which has proved lamentably true.
