Hey Bloggers! I’ve not posted much for a while as I’ve been busy building something potentially exciting! I am now a director of my own company!YAY!
www.artthief.co.uk is an online gallery that finds and curates some of the best art around at affordable prices. Co founded by me and my buddy our aim is to promote and sell high quality Giclee prints by both established and upcoming artists with the idea to create a place where the majority of the profits go to the artist and not the gallery. Sounds pretty exciting right!? Well we launched yesterday, which means we are live today… What are you waiting for? Go and check it out! Maybe buy a print or two? 😉 We are also on social media – who isn’t these days hey! FACEBOOKTwitterINSTAGRAMPinterest I think that covers the lot! Would be great to see you on these. We have a growing rogues gallery of artists and artwork, a perfect excuse to keep a sharp eye on those outlets to stay up to date with new and exciting art, exclusively commissioned prints, artist interviews and news about Art Thief.

Gorilla’s are amazing huge and powerful animals. They exude a quiet honour and a still dignity that makes a much more profound statement than any boast. Their leadership skills are not of the aggressive kind, rather the gorilla manages other members within the troop with temperance. As a spirit animal, the gorilla reminds us to raise our heads and take pride. Words associated with the spirit of the gorilla are. LOYALTY, DIGNITY, STRENGTH, INTELLIGENCE, NURTURING.
The tiger is a symbol of energy and power and is considered the king of the jungle.

So I’ve been thinking about a theme, a limited edition of 20 postcards, 4 designs, each design is sent out to 5 different people around the world. Nice huh!? and so… my first theme shall be ‘What if…’ I often have weird and wonderful thoughts, although the people around me would say ‘strange’ I often tire of being considered the odd one but my mouth sometimes runs away with me.(maybe being a bit mad as an artist helps, right? after all most great art wasn’t produced without the artist turning a little senile, hum although fear not my future correspondents I can certainly confirm I will not be cutting my ear off and posting that!..anyways I think a lot and when I observe things that I see or things people do or say, I imagine what it would be like if things were different, for example the saying ‘pigeons are just rats with wings.’ SO! what if rats actually had wings? what would they look like?. As a result I am embracing my peculiarity and my own way I am bringing to life and sharing my bizarre with you!… you lucky thing you! I’ve got a few sketches done and when I am happy I shall use my trusty watercolours to paint the rare images that shall soon grace The Post Blog.
