Hey guys thanks for stopping by on this page. I have a huge variety of works from literature, traditional art, photography and photomanipulation. Feel free to throw in your two cents about what you think. I'd love to hear your opinions.


What rough beast by Defyaugury

I love the colourful stylish look to this piece! It has a wavery feel to it, like the waves of heat coming off the pavement on a hot da...

And now a question for the pastel artists:

So, I've been looking around to buying decent coloured and slightly textured pastel paper. So far I haven't found any I liked yet. So far I've tried Reeves (the lined texture in it is absolutely awful) and I've tried Canson Mi-Teintes (I find the texture has too many holes that show through for my liking). I'd like paper that has something for the pastels to grip to but I can do detail with. Any suggestions of brands and where to buy them?

Should I try watercolour paper?

Also, I'm going to be participating in a live drawing event for 5 hours. Does anyone have any suggestions how to prepare for that? 

Don't forget, my contest is still up!
Think in the Frame ContestHello! 
So, I was having a girl's night in with some friends and we were doing an arts and crafts night. One of my friends was making a quilt and leaving behind some cut offs. I absolutely loved the colours and the patterns of her cloths. I was a little saddened to find out that the little scraps would be thrown out. So I collected them and glued them onto cards. Eventually I was hoping to turn these into cards - and I still might do but I thought I might see what the rest of the community might do with them. So I figured what better way to do this than a contest?
So the idea is:
1. Use one of the four frames to create a piece:
2. Artwork can be traditional or digital. Heck I'll accept visual poetry and typography as well, just to throw some ideas in! I may divide categories later - depends on how man
