Guests at the time travellers' tea party by SpikedMcGrath
Guests at the time travellers' tea party
The annual time traveller's tea party was held this weekend (in 1862) I was lucky enough to attend - since I knew someone going I was able to snag a lift. I got the guests to line up and then we froze time while I painted them from life. It saves time you see, plus it's impossible to get a dodo to stay still.

Done for Advocate Art agency's annual calendar.

I decided to make a video. People have been encouraging me.
It shows my painting process from start to finish when working on a portrait from imagination. It's not a tutorial exactly but hopefully it'll be of some help or interest to someone out there.



Frankly, it's a bit stupid, but my main goal was to get to grips with making a tutorial video so if I ever want to then I can. Consider this one a dry run- I'll probably make something more useful in the future.
Marooned. by SpikedMcGrath
Marooned.
Isn't it awful when your mutinous space pirate crew leave you on an asteroid? Spotty internet access at best, no toilet paper and the food is terrible. Not to mention the unspeakable bleakness of space pressing in you from all sides. It's partly why I never leave the house.

See the somewhat convoluted rough process behind this picture on my blog here: www.spikedmcgrath.com/blog/mar…

Despite being repeatedly told that all artists drink too much absinthe, cut their own ears off and only make money after they’re dead, I have always wanted to be one. Strangely, I haven’t grown out of it.

If you're interested in commissioning me or purchasing rights to use artwork please email me via: tom990@gmail.com
I don't bite, but I will ask for real money.
