Hi Gem! As you apparently like things such as shoutboxes and fairies with piercings, I hereby shout that my latest beer fairy has a navel ring. You'll need to Download to see it, as her bellybutton is really only a very small part of the entire image.

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 18, 2015, 6:55 AM
journal header testing by rockgem

things have bene a little manic for the past few days/weeks the amount of time i seem to have lost track of somewhat :faint:
but i am doing my best today in a fe3w free hours to get a little back on track with everything, i know i have emails to answer and art to comment on and journals to read etc but its all going to have to form an orderly line and be got to when i get to it, a lot has been going on so i shall try nutshell some of it in this journal

:bulletwhite: Work (and an unexpected meeting!) :bulletwhite:

My manager has been taken ill and we do not know when he will be returning to work so I’ve been putting in a lot more hours at work and recently found out that next week I will be packed off to our head office for a training course from Monday to Friday  there will be more qualifications earned and probably a nice certificate at the end of it :la:

While I was working last Saturday I served a gent who just needed a quick repair to his watch and we got into a conversation as his watch had a little music box built into it which really made me smile as I adore quirky things. We got into a conversation and he asked how my manager was etc. then we were talking work, as soon as he mentioned what he did  I knew who he was instantly Willard Wiggan ! a renowned micro-sculptor  whose  work I have admired for years!
For those of you who have not heard of  this amazingly talented gent please google him and be amazed! - he creates minute sculptures - works of art so tiny that they fit on the head of a pin! :faint:
I was privileged enough to be shown a piece of his work - needless to say it made my day to be able to meet someone whose work I have admired for several years (literally I always used to keep cuttings from newspapers when art was mentioned and I have several in a scrapbook on Wiggan's work)


:bulletwhite: Home. :bulletwhite:

At present both my grandmothers are somewhat ill.
My mom’s mom is having trouble with her joints and her back - she is also hardly eating - we take her meals and such but if we don’t watch her she will ‘save it for a bit later’ and then feed it to the dog - the dog in question who recently pulled her over and she was stuck on the floor for over an hour :( she won’t give up her dog at all but all she keeps saying is how much she truly misses my late granddad and wants to be with him again :( she seems to think she is a bother and an inconvenience deep down she is just very lonely even though my mom, my aunts and uncles and cousins visit her (literally someone visits every day and my aunt who lives in a flat next to hers visits twice a day) 
She needs a lot more care and we are worried that as well as some minor strokes she is possibly developing dementia as she is recently getting places and times and people mixed up.

My late dad’s mom - I got a text from TheSoulReaperReborn who is my little brother. ( I say little he is way taller than me!) he also does some epic cosplay which I am trying to get him to post on here  (Terry Ickle bro do you hear me??)  either way he got a message that he forwarded to me saying his mom had spotted my nan wandering around the local town looking very confused, I had to chase up my aunt and uncle and make sure - it seems she has taken to going to church  and then for a coffee afterwards on a Sunday morning which makes sense - but this was getting on for afternoon and she wasn't answering her phone. I have not been close to her for some years - certainly not since my dad passed away but I still worry about her.
She has been to the doctors for tests but nothing conclusive yet has been said.

My cat. - she is 20 and I adore her but she is not doing too well, she has arthritis, but now she has developed a lump on her neck, the vet suspects this is a tumor, but she is too old and frail and it would be cruel to put her through the trauma of surgery and that alone would probably kill her, he also suspects that her kidneys are starting to fail :(  she is not in any pain at the moment, so we are just keeping a very close eye on her and taking it day to day until the inevitable where I will have to say goodbye to her - and I suspect that will be soon. She’s getting spoiled rotten (as always)  and years ago when I first got her ( she was a 3 week old kitten) I said I would always be there for her as she has been there for me for nearly 2 thirds of my life.

:bulletwhite: Play :bulletwhite:

My ‘play’ schedule is almost as busy as my work ones! :faint:

When I arrive back from work training I have a friends birthday to attend , and in turn the weekend after, another friend has a turn to celebrate.
The second weekend in July I am off to  a wedding ( there are activities so I am going to be doing some clay pigeon shooting!) but I have been invited as someone has dropped out and i have have been asked to create a piece of artwork for the grooms on their big day :la: ( I am currently working on this)
When I arrive back from that the following weekend will be a friends birthday ( with a heroes and villains dress up theme) and a 1940’s weekend at a local history museum
Hoping after that I have breathing room enough before I jet off to Germany and specifically Cologne for the Amphi music festival  :eager:

DD stamp II by dexter13-sk DD Stamp by tRiBaLmArKiNgS I Suggest DD's Stamp by IdaLarsenArt

I'm a Wolverhampton university graduate - semi-professional artist/freelance artist
I dabble in a little of everything including crafts although i tend towards Digital art especially fractal manipulation work.

I create and provide stock and resources for use on deviantART and occasionally try my hand at literature.

I've had work published in magazines & submitted to charity exhibitions. I held my first solo exhibition in May 2012 and took part in a collaborative exhibition in December 2012

I've been commissioned by 'too fast apparel' clothing
and taken part in local community events promoting market traders and local artists with displays of artwork in empty retail units and of late I've become a regular at several local craft fairs and markets helping to raise money for charity

In the future I'm looking to become more self-employed

--------------------------------------------------------------

:spotlight-right: Commission Work :spotlight-left:

I'm open for commissions!

:bulletblack: The price of a piece of work will depend a lot on what exactly you would want me to create and how long it will take me to complete - I’m open to negotiations - especially when it comes to traditional works that would require mailing. please factor in postage costs if that is the case!

:bulletblack: Please be fair and consider the time that some of my artworks take.

:bulletblack: commission work will be uploaded to dA but not submitted to be available for download or selling as a print -if it is a digital commission i will email your piece to you full-sized without watermarks etc.

:bulletblack: anything else just ask or drop me a note
