working in studio

Well this week hasn’t been much different then last week. I basically have been doing all the work on getting these four bronzes colored and planted. I put a couple of variations of burgundy red onto the bones and then took them over to City Roots were they planted some plants into the glass elements. I have to say they look really nice. The plant element really pulls the artwork together. I think these are some really awesome sculpture. This sculpture is subtle for me and my artwork but still on the cutting edge of the art world. This work deals with life and death and the overwhelming question what’s after death if anything but eternal sleep. My fascination with death and bones is a huge influence in my artwork. If you a fan of the Art Revolution you probably already know this but thought I would mention it again for all you new readers. Other then sculpting in death I’m silk-screening skulls as well. I’ve been in a screen studio and been printing my butt off. Been having fun printing skulls on newspaper and various other things. I also started to build a silk-screen table in my studio. So I can keep on printing after this studio wares out. As always thanks for your ongoing support of the art revolution and remember to check out my website.

my welsh people

It's a sad day for my Welsh brethren. This article explains it all....
Police in Wales were called to investigate a mysterious flying saucer, only to discover it was the moon. The confused caller asked: 'If you've got a couple of minutes perhaps you could find out what it is?' The moon was mistaken for a "bright, stationary" UFO which had been loitering for at least half an hour, by a confused local in South Wales who made a 999 call to the police.
Today officers released a transcript in order to highlight the time wasted by unnecessary 999 calls. The bizzare conversation ran as follows:
Control: "South Wales Police, what's your emergency?"
Caller: "It's not really. I just need to inform you that across the mountain there's a bright stationary object."
Control: "Right."
Caller: "If you've got a couple of minutes perhaps you could find out what it is? It's been there at least half an hour and it's still there."
Control: "It's been there for half an hour. Right. Is it actually on the mountain or in the sky?"
Caller: "It's in the air."
Control: "I will send someone up there now to check it out."
Caller: "OK."
After the police patrol car arrives, the script reveals the exchange between the control room and the police officer sent to the scene.
Control: "Alpha Zulu 20, this object in the sky, did anyone have a look at it?"
Officer: "Yes, it's the moon. Over."
A police spokeswoman said: "This was a recent example of an inappropriate 999 call to South Wales Police.
"Yes, we can all see the comical side but calling 999 with an unnecessary non-emergency call could block a genuine call for vital seconds and put lives at risk."
Other bizarre calls cited by the police force included someone asking for help voting for Rhydian on The X-Factor and another requesting a pound coin for their supermarket trolley.
