Yuh-huh, all of those things. 1. I recently completed the illustration for Edgar Allan Poe’s ‘Alone’ – a beautiful little poem which forms the lyrics for a song on one of my favourite albums, Arcturus’ ‘La Masquerade Infernale’. It’s quite a departure from my metalhead days though, as it has a self-consciously childlike colour scheme … More Poe, postcards… prints?
Tomorrow I’ll be introducing Sheffield’s joint-second-worst poet of 2018 to the very scary world of Youtube. She’s a little nervous about it. Edgarella has previously performed at Sheffield and the Edinburgh Fringe’s anti-slam contests for bad poetry. Watch the preview video here: Coming Soon: Edgarella She writes about all the stuff that makes us both … More Edgarella
Here are a pair of postcard illustrations. They aren’t painted yet. That may take a while. I’ve just moved flats and, well, everything takes a while when you’re balancing a whole bunch of variables. They will be dark. But at the moment, they are pencil on card. The former is a gribbly monster inspired by … More Postcards: Ice Demon, Midnight Ruins
Here’s my newest completed postcard illustration, ‘The Green Thing’. Prints, as ever, eventually… And a new postcard with completed pencil work, ‘Forest with Church Ruins’ which has a lazy title because I am a lazy artist. See the full series here: keirajamesart.wordpress.com/postcards
It’s an arboreal barracuda. But that’s a gobful, so just call it a forest demon. Here’s the newest addition to the Postcard series, inspired by the Sandworms of Beetlejuice, and various other terrors that dwell in the deep, dark woods. There may be a story behind this, if I can ever be bothered to write … More Arboracuda
So there’s this character from that film, Avengers: Endgame. I like that film. And there’s this character from that TV show, Game of Thrones. I like that show. Here’s a picture I painted involving those characters. It’s linked rather than straight-out posted, in case you haven’t seen either of those things yet. “It’s ok, buddy. … More A screen-related thing…
Dear reader, I would like to draw your attention to the new ‘Postcards’ page and the recently updated Poe gallery, now featuring deadly poison, tragic loss and a late night in the Briny Depths. Go look. Go on!
..three years since my last blog post. I am not good at this informing-the-people-of-the-things lark. Since my lat post, I’ve totally finished one album cover, which was a while ago, and finished an EP cover a couple of weeks ago, which is part of a much larger work whcih I’m not showing you yet cos … More So! It’s been… um…
Blimey, it’s been a while! I’ve been working on and off on the Keira James Mark 4 shoes for nearly 6 months now, due to available materials, tools, confidence in my own skills and constant experimentation and refinement. It’s a turnaround time that will need some improvement if I’m to start doing these for other … More KJ004 Shoemaking part 3
“Thankyou Mommy!” “My pleasure honey. Remember, we’re doing this to save Metal!” I drew this image in response to the news that Metallica’s James Hetfield would be narrating a TV show called ‘The Hunt’, about a party of big game hunters going to Alaska to, well, kill bears. Funnily enough, I’m not dead keen … More James Hetfield – Hunting Trophy
