digital satirist/illustrator

I have been very quiet on the blogosphere for a long time for a couple of reasons. Life has generally been a bit tumultuous but I was also thinking 'Why bother? Nobody follows my blog anyway'.

The other reason is I have been going through some personal changes - my job for one, but also my art practice - where do I fit now that I have moved over to the dark side? I had an epiphany recently and have updated the intro blurb on my website to share it.

Lately I have been developing my digital illustration skills as a medium for social commentary. I love satire and have an offbeat sense of humour (just ask my friends). My theory is that 'cartoon' and illustration is one of the best ways to share my thoughts about the state of humanity.

I feel like this is the beginning of an exciting new era in my evolution as an artist.

Stay tuned.
