So Labyrinth was the effort of many, many people and it wasn't just Bowie that made the movie a cult classic, or the inspiration that it was to me and a lot of artists I know. Nevertheless, I can't think of Labyrinth without Bowie, or his music, and it certainly wouldn't be the same film without him. And a different film might not have made me fall quite so in love with dark villains, or fantasy, or heroine's journeys or glitter in the same way. So I owe a big bright spark of inspiration in my life to Bowie.

Beyond that, he's a reminder that you can do something that flops at making money but changes the lives and paths of generations. That you can inspire people at any age. That you can reinvent yourself over and over and it's never too late to be transforming, making, creating. That you can surround yourself by awesome people and collaborate, steal from, be inspired by - whatever you want to call it - and still put together work that is might be totally different to anything you've done before, but that is uniquely yours. That you don't have to give a damn about whether you're too old or you've had too long a break to do what you love.

Today's a good day to find that thing you really want to do but are afraid it's not "you" or that nobody would like it - and do it anyway.

I'm a concept artist, illustrator and all around art monkey by day. I'm also all of these things by night. The fact that I get paid for it during the day is a nice bonus, and keeps me in hot chocolate and Wacom tablets.

Current Residence: Scotland
Favourite style of art: Fantasy realism (I enjoy the irony)

I was so excited to find your page! I have loved your work since I first saw it on Elfwood many years ago. I miss all the other stuff (original stuff maybe?) you had posted there too.
It's always super inspiring when you can find a great artist that can actually make a living off their craft. Keep up the awesome work!

Oh my goodness, Elfwood feels like a lifetime ago! Yes, I did do more original pencil work back then, and I wish I still did. At that time I was in high school without the access to digital drawing tools that I have now, and as I transitioned into university and began focusing on the games and film industry, working digitally naturally took over. But I do miss working with pencils.

Can't believe you remember me from all the way back then! Thanks so much for commenting :D
