“Argonath” The Pillars of Kings – A Sketchwork

It’s hard to believe that the Lord of the Rings films are now 20 years older or more now. Having read the books I would say that the films where an honest, modern interpretation of the story. They definitely don’t follow the the story or tone of the stories line by line but great in…

Sketchwork – Top Gun Maverick

Here’s a lok at my latest sketcwork, taken from the Top Gun Maverick movie poser I saw it and it was to me this brilliant blend of old and new, a now much older Maverick looking up at the twin fighters from a P51 Mustang. I (for some reason) had to draw it… So I…

Thinking about it makes it Hurt – The Tax System

I’m sorry, it’s me – I can’t help it. I’ve tried to keep the insanity from the door of this corner of the web but I can’t do it any longer. The world in which we live is wonderful, beautiful and terrible thing and yet there’s few – well quite a lot of people actually…
