Works

Carriage Clock Up-Cycling

Showcasing digital art by up-cycling an old clock.

The Nereid Coleoide

Another of my manipulated fractal / rendered figure composite images.

Model Locomotive

I remember steam locomotives from my childhood, and particularly watching them during many (seemingly endless) warm summer holidays spent around Hest Bank near Morecambe.

Fractal Landscape

An image created by compositing a wire-frame model into a generated background.

Poems from the Road – Preface

A multimedia work inspired by a famous and celebrated journey which took place many years ago in Japan.
In this project I have used generative music and generative art techniques to create  a concept album.

A Cautionary Tale

Hello? What’s this? I did not order anything electrical…

How words have have changed their meaning for the younger generations….

Talisman Board Game DIY Upgrades

A bunch of do-it-yourself upgrades that I created for my copy of the classic board game “Talisman”.

Untangling Entangled States

An essay outlining a thought experiment which explores the application of abstract geometries to the data modelling of musical composition and performance.

Mandelbulb 3D Fractal

I wonder what a living space might look like if the things living in it were very far from human? From our perspective, it might look so strange that we would not even recognize form hinting at function. We might guess that it was some natural accretion of crystalline material – growing, yet devoid of design or intent. 

Steampunk Playmat

I play Magic The Gathering most Friday nights. I am not very skilled at the game, but I like the card designs and admire the artwork. I also like the “paraphernalia” – boxes, dice, playmats etc. So I decided to create my own design for a playmat.

Generative Music

I have been developing my “soundscapes” composition technique recenty with the aid of a sequencer called Nodal, which was developed around 2005 at Monash University, Australia.

Artist’s Website

I just completed developing a website for an artist friend. Mavis Nwokobia creates the most amazing paintings using a variety of fine art media.

Image - The Call

The Call

Fractal landscape with figures.

Clock Conundrum

I drafted this little puzzle for my pal Eric, and he enjoyed it so much that he said, “Why not blog it?”

Decoupaged Simple Box

Just to demonstrate that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to make a colourful and interesting personalised gift. I found a magazine for stamp collectors in a  charity shop for 20p. A plain wooden “chest” style box from “The Works” ready for decorating costs £2.00 Instructions: (1) Use a pencil to mark…

Print and Play Board Game – Dungeon Race

I designed “Dungeon Race” especially for situations where there are mixed ages of young children playing. If some of the kids are OK with “snakes and ladders”, but not quite ready yet for anything much more complicated, then “Dungeon Race” is a great next step

Simple Fantasy Skirmish

A free set of simple rules for beginners or young kids to play table-top wargames using miniature models & scenery.

Sehnsucht

Soundscapes and images inspired (at least in part) by avant garde composers of the last century, including Karheinz Stockhausen and György Ligeti.

Lion Rider

I like to invent album covers for 1970’s Prog Rock bands that existed only in my own imagination. Wierd huh? Yeah, I know.

Humpback

“Humpback” is a relaxing New Age style musical composition involving psycho-active acoustics.
