Clockwork Faerie Throne

Fashionable seated sentinel on alien planetscape!

Of late all that I have posted are pieces created years in the past. This one is no exception, probably painted around 2000. 

Without delving too deeply into subject matter, these represent my more finished self expressions of the time. Based on a sort of personal philosophy with dictates to the character and energy of the images. Similar aspects may be seen in other pieces from my early works. As I was influenced heavily in my youth I have no shame in exhibiting these, for the records!

This guy is sitting on the reverse side of a three page catalogue which would introduce and explain a certain concept. I would imagine. Bits and pieces have been scanned from the whole 6 pages. I worked with a colourful pallet of oil applied to a cheap piece of cardboard! 

right is more from the same side, and below the reverse side imagery.

The Origional Mr Pen Pen

I like 'Original' works (words!) it would appear, here is 'The Original Mr.Pen Pen, why? Since he was made with a pencil I cannot now remember.. still, glad I kept the image. If I do recall he was made along with other painting layouts at the time that were quite similar in some aspects which I no longer have.. this being probably around the 1997 mark.. there abouts. Inspired!!
