Beautiful work.

I'm really impressed with your stuff man. You have so many talents all wrapped up into one. You can really tell you spent a lot of thought and effort into making each sketch/piece into it's own idea. What can I say man, I really enjoy your work. I will bookmark your blog and make sure I keep comin' back for more. Thanks for the coffee breaks in the morning, REALLY fun stuff.

If you get time, please check out my blog and let me know what you think. Thanks!

That gorilla just killed me. What an amazing use of lights and sahdows.

I hate you deeply. >:(

Those are beautifull.
You always surprise me with every stuff.
Again, The house of Asterion makes me feel as in a ghost world.

Asterion is a photo collage...Something I almost never do. But in this case it hit the spot.
I used 2 of my own photographs: one of the Assyrian antiquities in the British Museum with one of an abandoned hotel in the Czech republic.
"The House of Asterion" was the first of Jorge Luis Borges' puzzling metaphysical tales which I read.

Rogabo is the kind of gorilla you dont meet in a Disney movie.

"Orealla" by R L Stevenson concerns a lone traveller in an antique land.
I wanted it to look like an old photograph or movie still. I drew it in ink, photocopied it, drew on it again, photocopied it again - under sheets of tracing paper...This went on for quite a while. Xerox machines can be very creative. They respond especially well to a good kicking....Try doing that to your mac!

Terrific work Neil - more photo-collage! The technique behind the bottom image is interesting too - incredible atmosphere - it really does have the feeling of an old photo.
