What’s going on?

I am very pleased to say that there is a visible flurry of activity going on right now, if you know where to look.  I have started a new website to represent the new project, and I by no means am abandoning this. I mean, I could be accused of having abandoned it a long time ago, and I have no defense against that accusation. But as you can see if you have stumbled back here after some months. There is finally a new set of slider images, and I am just contemplating putting some images up in a new gallery so will not worry too much about this little written nothingness, but rather concentrate...

¡qué guay es tener plan!

¡qué guay es tener plan!

you may be wondering why you don't see more of me, and more of my art?     or maybe just what the hell happened?   you may very well not be wondering that, but now that I have said it, it must have crossed your mind. I hope I can provide an interesting enough explanation, without sounding like I am am whining, instead of winning. I always say that mine is a different category, called justified whinging, insert smiley and wily face here. Not that I am here to whine or to whinge. That's all behind me now. I just want to tell my story. I might work on getting some...

words ‘n’ things

Words are not my thing! I mean they are and they aren't. I write fabulous speeches and polished blog posts in my head as I walk around, but I sit down at the buzzing box and it all dries up. And that's just the surface problem. I have always found words tricky. I have consumed endless quantities of them, and still do today, and I am so easily moved to action by well written words that I can imagine giving up copy-reading as a life saving move. As for copy-writing... it's the devil's work. Just yesterday I bought, one after the other, two information products/books because I checked my email....

going over the damn wall, too much Coffee?

So, how is it that seven dogs and five cats is such a problem? The cats aren't really that much of a special problem in themselves. Well, apart from Coffee the new kitten, who makes life miserable for every one at times. At the same time as he is one of the cuddliest, most in your face cats around. He sleeps with us every night. He often curls up in the angle between my shoulder and my neck, and purrs away like a little mad purring engine, which is both a delight and a horror at the same time. Mayday however, doesn't see him in the same light. Coffee makes life impossible for him. Whenever...

Help, Hell and highwater (part two of the saga)

In my last post I mentioned that I have a problem, but didn't go too far in getting to what it is. I do have a terrible habit of getting off-track, or at least, trying to put in too much supporting information. I do the same when I speak, I'm good at the never ending story. But that's not the problem that I am referring too. My mental health is part of the problem, to be sure, but it's not the problem I wanted to talk about. The problem I want to talk about is part of the reason for the deterioration in my mental health more like it. I am sure there are very few CEOs or even...

getting Eni, who is later to be getting down.

And later still to be getting put down. The story of Eni, my little man. 2001 till 2014, may his little body rest in peace. Eni once had a blog, which you can find over at Ha Llegado el Lider. He was the cutest little guy, and his life was cruelly and unnecessarily cut short by mobile phone use at the wheel. (that's my theory, how else would someone run right over him with both wheels at slow speed with a frantic person in front of their four wheel drive telling them visually and audibly not to proceed. They have to have been writing a wassap or similar to be paying so little attention...

My vision statement

My vision statement

powerful stuff I am a heart based psychedelic visual artist who works from a deep feeling of love, awe and respect, gained from much suffering on the road to my true spiritual maturity. I make objects that change peoples lives by bringing a deep aesthetic satisfaction and I do plenty of formal and informal public art projects that directly support positive change in all they touch. I work at being a force for positive change through my example and my public statements and occasional public speaking. I have also published my views about life and creation in books and online and know that I have...
