I see it all perfectly; there are two possible situations – one can either do this or that. My honest opinion and my friendly advice is this: do it or do not do it – you will regret both.

Some people turn sad awfully young. No special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way. They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world. I know, for I’m one of them.

This painting is about 4-5 years old. It was intended to be the cover for a release from one of Martin (Bedabbled!) Jones’ many musical projects, but, as is so often the case, reality got in the way. Things might be about to change though, and I’ve been asked to design a new cover, for release later this year by The Sinister Insult Records. Watch this space for more details soon.
In the meantime, anyone interested in buying this original, email me.
Before this blog, I used to maintain the PsychSkull blog. That’s the catch-all term I had for my art, my writings, my entire weltanschauung. Comic books, cult films, freak fiction, psychedelic rock posters, garage bands, stoner rock, heavy metal – all the groovy shit I have been obsessed with since I was a pre-teen. In recent years I’ve concentrated on painting and drawing in a realist vein, and via this forum and my Flickr albums that’s where that work will be featured. For everything else, I recommend you visit the relaunched PsychSkull.
Further to my previous post on the subject, here’s a more recent example of my daughter’s artistic progress. It’s a drawing of one of her heroines, the ‘YouTuber’ L.D. Shadowlady, and it’s much better than anything I could have done at her age.
