I have been working through some of my older pieces lately. Making sure they are a higher resolution and tweaking the designs slightly fixing things I am unhappy with.
First through the changes is Second Lives which has seen significant changes. I will be offering a print of the older version soon for those of you who prefer the older version.
Print is now available through the print store.

Yes indeed, Grey Skies is pleased to be now offering prints of the various poster designs I have worked on.
I have been wanting to offer prints for a while now and have spent the last month or so researching several providers trying to find one that would work. Finally it was narrowed down (with some helpful advice from a fellow artist) to Society6.
Currently there is only a small selection on offer but I hope to grow that over the course of the year.
To the many people who have been poking me about the Skyrim piece, at the moment I have no plans to sell that unless I can work something out with Bethesda.

We were given the complete set of Harry Potter movies for Christmas. So we’ve been watching our way through them with the kids. As a result this mornings speed painting was of some random dark wizard.
Done in Alchemy with some colour tweaks in Photoshop, took about an hour.

I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed, but I must admit that such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold my Myst book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written.

The Temple of the Falling Star is a small temple within the Vaal’lin city and sister to the Temple of the Rising Star which resides in another Age. The two temples are linked together by a thread that goes beyond space and time.

My wife and I love Doctor Who, so for this Christmas I wanted to do something slightly different for her. River Song is one of our favorite characters (along with Captain Jack) so I wanted to make River’s famous blue book.
Book cover was made from cardboard bound with faux leather and painted with several layers of blues to build up the highlights.
Pages are simply stained with coffee to age them. Images and text were a combination of images printed and worked into with ink, paint and pencil and straight up drawings done by hand.
The cover could use a little more work but it turned out pretty well and my wife loved it (combined it with a Tardis Key) which is the important thing.
