‘I consider myself a Hyper-realist artist. I love to paint. I use the word paint for lack of a better word. My medium is actually light. I have a passion for making things happen on the screen. Finding a new way of doing something and finding a new room in my imagination is what I love about the work.’




‘This is my latest and most ambitious digital painting of a Chicago scene unveiled at Photoshop World in Miami on March 22, 2006.
It is a panorama of the Damen Station on the Blue Line of the Chicago Transit Authority.
Adobe Illustrator was used for generating the majority of the basic shapes as well as all the buildings in the Chicago skyline.
The rest was created in Photoshop.
• The image size is 40 inches by 120 inches.
• The flattened file weighs in at 1.7 Gigabytes.
• It took eleven months (close to 2,000 hours) to create.
• The painting is comprised of close to fifty individual Photoshop files.
• Taking a cumulative total of all the files, the overall image contains over 15,000 layers.
• Over 500 alpha channels were used for various effects.
• Over 250,000 paths make up the multitude of shapes throughout the scene.’

Peur(s) Du Noir

Posted in Film + Animation on May 6, 2009 by strikethreeuk

Peur(s) Du Noir (translated as ‘Fears Of The Dark) is a collection of French animation. It tells several different spooky and somewhat twisted stories. Each one has its own unique style, ranging from scribbly and grainy, to clear cut (think Renaissance). At just over and hour it’s not the longest, and I would have enjoyed it if the stories were explored more thoroughly. Nevertheless, give it a watch!
