In the beginning...

Ok. So i guess this is a blog. Lets just see how that works out shall we? I've no real experience of this form of self promotion other than a couple of friends and family who've embarked on something similar in the past.

Anyway, to kick off here's a picture.

I was inspired by the seemingly alien rock formations of Brimham rocks in North Yorkshire when i visited them a while ago, and wondered what they'd look like ten times the size.

A bit like that. Maybe?

Its not a fresh piece by any stretch, but its one of the first times i experimented with using photographic textures along side hand drawn and photoshopped elements. More recent images using this technique can be found on my site.

Anyway, I'll post some sketchbook work next time as i have piles of them that are gradually taking over my shelf space, and exercising some of their contents might put them to good use.


  1. That's a beautiful piece Nick, The light on those rocks is great. They remind me of giant stone chess pieces.

    Not that I've ever seen any giant stone chess pieces.

  2. Really nice Nick, has so much atmosphere. Lovely ski/cloud

  3. sky, not ski, bloody norwegian air!

  5. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad
    is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  6. You can also ask for regular servicing from the company as getting it serviced from some other source might not be that
    reliable. Waste water treatment is one of the most profitable option to preserve our precious
    storage water supply. Thus not only is the surface area maximized,
    but so is the amount of time each bubble spends in the water, allowing more time to transfer oxygen to the water.
