This is my latest painting - 'Tyrannogothus'. It is a Theropod type dinosaur that is a development from the Gothicasaurus drawing and window drawing that I did a few months back. I used Charcoal, Acrylic and Spraypaint to create this beastie. I can't remember off hand how big the canvas is - it's over a metre wide I think. I think it worked out well for me just using black, white, grey and silver. It's a hint to Gothic music and relates back to work I did many years ago at college based around Bath Abbey.
Here's a close up of the head...
And the foot with the towers and clouds around it...
The painting will go on display along with a few other pieces of mine at the View Art Gallery, Hotwells, Bristol as part of Upfest on Saturday 6th June 2009.
I use my drawing skills and love of detail to create bizarrely
intricate collections of creatures; from rabbits made of tanks to
dinosaurs mobilized by ‘lots of stuff’. I was trained in the
traditional techniques of animation and drawing, becoming influenced
by Miyazaki and Geoff Darrow amongst others. I use a combination of
graphics, line drawing, ink and paint pen to create my beasts and I am
now assaulting windows and walls with my unique menagerie.
