Luverly use of colours.
You can almost feel the nip in the air

Wonderful piece, Shane!

I hope you're feeling better too! That's some f*cked up stuff you're going through there. The docs crack the riddle yet?

Y'know... it sounds like you have some kind of super hangover - without drinking! Maybe you should fight this disease Bizarro style and drink til the room STOPS spinning!

... no, seriously - don't do that!

Feel better, Shane.

gary - that nip in the air you feel, it's called summer!

brian - thankyou for the well wishes. believe me, i DID try that bizarro-style remedy, sadly it didn't work, but didn't hurt either.
more or less give up on doctors and sought relief/help elsewhere with better results.

belle - thankyou kindly. among the drooling psychos, bloodsuckers and dead things, i do like the odd moment of sweetness and calm. usually doesn't last...

trent - cheers! grey markers are fast becoming my favourite medium, just the right amount of control AND unpredictability.

Hi Shane, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers. If you could link me or give the project a plug I would be very grateful.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.
