LOGO and TYPOGRAPHY >>
Before we talk about Logo, let us consider Icon or Symbol. Icons convey religious concepts and are usually sacred.Symbols communicate ideas and the best are universal across all languages. All logos are symbols, some Logos eventually become iconic.. Get BALLS...
ILLUSTRATION Air Brush and Fine Art >>
The majority of work in this Galleria was rendered in airbrush, paint brush, good old paint and pencil, or pen and ink. Some of it was rendered as an expression of self. Most of it was commissioned with a style or ambience in mind – but with my interpretation...
DIGITAL ILLUSTRATION >>
Although I have given up airbrush illustration in favor of digital illustration that uses images derived from photographs – I try to maintain a style that appears real and “painterly” at the same time – which most approximages my original style of photo realist illustration. Your imagination is the limit.
Digital Enhancement & Manipulation. Apart from digital imagineering, you can commission our services - if your price is right. In this instance a detailed brief is required as well as the type and extent of anticipated end use. This is important, since imaging techniques vary depending on the physical scaling of the art-piece. Nice on A4. Not nice enlarged to 20 x 30 metres.

With regard to ART images on this site. High resolution CMYK Tiff files exist for some of the Commissioned work. For a nominal fee, you may apply to purchase and I will courier a disc to the supplied address of the imaging company that you would use to out-put the art. The files are too large to e-mail. The imaging company will also be supplied with imaging instructions. While I am dealing with them, you can be sure of zero mistakes.

If you see your own "purchased by commission" artwork here - remember that the contract you signed with me was, in most cases, for the work only. If you check your contract. You will see that you did not opt for exclusive rights... meaning that I can sell it again to whom ever I wish.

Production Processes:
We utilise a textured poly-substrate which has a texture similar to canvas. In the unlikely event of cabin de-pressurization, pull the yellow mask… oh wrong script… that you are dissatisfied with the end result, courier the whole lot back to us, at our expense, and you will be will refunded the full amount. But I doubt that will ever have to happen. There have been no refunds yet.

Enquires with regard to commissioning work are welcome.
