HEALTH Announce both a New Song and Album SLAVES OF FEAR with a new video

My favourite, LA's noise rock destructionists HEALTH are back with the announcement of SLAVES OF FEAR, a new album and song of the same title. I fell in love with these guy in 2010, when I saw then at the final day of Primavera Sound when they closed down the festival. Being it was in Barcelona, Spain the festival started later then most festivals and went later then

My Artwork in ImagineFX: Issue 166: Exposé

I have been a huge fan of ImagineFX magazine, a digital and tradition magazine that specialises in fantasy, science fiction, and conceptual art, for years, and have spent countless hours reading through the articles featuring different international artists giving insight into their working process while providing numerous tutorials that show into the steps undertaken when creating a specific piece of art. These tutorials have enabled me to learn

Ben Swann on Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and his case of Human Trafficking and Child Sex Crimes

This story I've know about for years, has continued to get absolutely no media coverage on TV and next to none in the press, shows corruption and collusion to the highest degree and exactly what happens when you have powerful friends that are intertwined in your illegal activities, even when dealing with human trafficking and child sex crimes. Although some media outlets are now covering this case because

Inktober 2018: The whole collection of half the month

2018 is the first time I have had the time to participate in Inktober, and it was truly enjoyable and forced me to work much faster then I'm used to.  The constraint on time (for those that don't know Inktober is when artists participate by posting a finished ink illustration everyday for the whole month of October (or as close as possible)) quickened my pace and I still

The Paradise that is Garden Island, Australia

Long before Amy and I arrived in Australia or even knew that we would one day in the near future end up here, we dreamed of getting to Australia so we could visit the private island that her grandparents own.  They built the house and landscaped the rest of the island creating a little garden paradise on a tiny island. We were unsure that we would ever get

Inktober 2018. Ink Illustrations for Day 1-3

2018 is the first time I have participated in Inktober and for those who do not know what this means, Inktober is an artist challenge that runs the length of October in which artist post an ink drawing everyday to social media.  It is a way for artists to force themselves to push out work as fast as possible while and at a steady pace for one month.

Walks, Hikes, Bikes, and Canyoning in and around the Sydney Region

Over the last few months Amy and I have been doing at least one long hike or walk every two weeks to explore the city and the surrounding area.  Sydney is encompassed by three major national parks on all three sides (Ku Ring Gai to the North, The Blue Mountains to the West, and The Royal National Park to the South) all of which have a larger footprint

King of the Dead Ink Drawing

King of the Dead.  Drawn on 9 x 12 inch watercolour paper with Micron 0.5mm pens.  This is the cumulation of about 40- 50 hours of line drawing, crosshatching, and stippling.  This piece is the most detailed ink drawing I have ever untaken and a progression in different techniques which I feel I am starting to master.  This is a representation of the King of the Dead is

A quick trip to Auckland, New Zealand

A few weeks ago I had to quickly leave Australia to reapply for my visa and so I took a quick 24 hour trip to Auckland, New Zealand.  I wasn't too excited to go as I went by myself, without Amy, and I didn't have my snowboard with me so I couldn't take advantage of the mountains in the middle of winter.  Coming from Canada I saw little
