This is a first for me, I've never had my work go viral before, it is just a tinsy winsy little bit exciting and great news for my business. Here's a snapshot of the finished mural done in a very sweet and lucky little two year old girl's bedroom. 




  



Hmm, think I'm going to turn it into wallpaper - today!

*Update - Done! this castle scene has been made into wallpaper, take a look here if you're curious: Twilight Castle Wallpaper

New mural added to website - Woodland fantasy scene in School Library

Hiya, I've been working hard this evening to get this mural I painted last year up on to the Sacredart Murals website. There's always so much to do, resizing and optimising images, adding all the wording and all the extra stuff that you need to do in order to be found on t'internet. So here it is, ready to pop into your field of view with just one click:

Pieced together this composite image to work from...

..with the job of painting this for real to come . Looking forward to it.
This image is a Photoshopped amalgamation of Disney and Disney style artwork I found on the internet, with some "landscaping" to alter the composition  and painting over the top to make it lighter and brighter than the original version. I'll be using it as a guide image when I paint this whole thing as a mural in a baby's nursery, in the new year. The individual components of this image we're obviously not therefore painted by me, I can't take credit for that, but the reworking is analogous to making a new song out of digital samples. It is just a guide, no more, so I hope no one is offended, particularly the original artists whose names and whereabouts I don't know!

New website content

There are some updated pages been added to the Sacredart Murals website, with bigger, better quality images and some entirely new never before seen murals. Two of these have been heavily influenced by Mr. Disney, such is the world we live in, and there are others on the Mural Gallery that I'm sure a lot of people haven't seen, so please take a peek, it's free (and looks perty ;)

Safari Mural

Hi folks, I've produced a new page on my website showing the Safari Mural I painted last year. Click on the following link to see...

Sacredart Murals - Safari Mural



I really quite like this one and wouldn't mind it in my house. I'm going to be releasing the designs on both walls as wallpaper in the near future, so it will be available to one and all, worldwide... Can't be bad.

Sacredart Merchandise

Howdy folks, just a quicky as I've just inserted my first couple of products on my spangly new Menchandise shop at http://www.zazzle.co.uk/sacredartmerchandise*

It's been a long time coming and now it's finally here! Wahoo!! Here's a few links:



Sometimes people visit my website and like what they see, but don't want to commission a mural or buy giant wallpaper, yet would still like to take away a small memento or a gift. Well now they can :)

Especially the awesome spiritually attuned mug!

It Works!!

Great! Very impressed with the IFTTT thingy working perfectly, with a simple little "recipe" the test blog entry was popped up on my facebook page timeline, just as I wanted. Not going to use Networked Blogs now as I tried it and found it quite unwieldy to use, plus they have just moved the best bits of it to a paid subscription service called Symphony, which is way overkill for me and not something I want to waste money on monthly. The only thing missing is a blog tab on my facebook page but I can live without that.

Next task was to get a feed for the blog working on my website, and that is now working lovely thanks to FeedWind (http://feed.mikle.com/) which is a nice little wiggit that slots into my html page all snug and cosy like. Brill.

Right, it's late and I've got to do some digital artwork tomorrow, so I'm off to bed.
