I don’t usually bother with end of year reviews or ‘best of’ lists, leaving such trivia to “journalists” who can’t be arsed, but the past 12 months have been so tumultuous for me that I wanted to assess what I have/haven’t achieved during that time. Above is just a small selection of the completed work, which includes three large paintings, a couple of smaller (A4 scale) works, along with a lot of commercial and comics work that may/not see light of day sometime in 2022. Not to mention that I also wrote, designed and published my first novel Daddy Witch, illustrated, designed and published a companion title: Laughing At The Funeral, as well as doing design work on all the Exile In The Margins titles published in 2021, and the first illustrations for new titles due in 2022. And all on top of a very demanding day job, which once again makes me wonder what “professional” artists and writers do all day. Nevertheless, I’m still disapponted and frustrated that I didn’t get more done, as the whistle of the reaper’s scythe grows louder with each passing year and there is still so much I want to do, so, in the words of Henry Rollins:

No such thing as spare time, no such thing as free time, no such thing as down time. All you got is life time. Go.
