“All exploitive art should look like it’s been knocked up at 5am by some wasted bum who once had talent but is now seriously on the slide.”

The Shining OIL


My ‘Demons’ painting was supposed to be the cover of DS 166 but apparently someone has turned in a stupendous piece on Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’ and now that might be the cover feature. They really are cheeky sods down at The Dark Side. Their last artist took 3 weeks to knock out a cover and they give me two frikken’ days! I don’t mind too much though, as I hate any painting that takes longer to do than two days. This one is nice and loose and a lot more vibrant than a tightly rendered, photo realistic piece would be. Hope you agree!
