Okay so I know its been awhile since I have posted a journal. 

It has been a busy few months under the Astral roof, lots of moving around, visiting places and digging up inspiration.

I have been practicing a number of new art styles and techniques too. Including my first strides into digital! I have been asked to try out a new art program called Mischief. So far I feel the program is utterly fantastic and once I have my brain around disjointed drawing I will review in detail in another journal. 

A few new pieces have popped out, I have a fascination with eyes and decided to do a series inspired by various things, so far you can see my Lucid, Mushroom and Peakcock pieces in my gallery. Also I have stepped into making model dragons! Using polymer clay I have been enjoying adding crystals and gems making these glittery little beasts. 

So in the run up to 2015

Expect more from Astralmimi!
Tonight I shall be creating some Halloween themed creatures!

I love to draw, have never had an art lesson and learn through trial and error. My fav genre's include surreal fantasy and mythology.

It always makes me sad when a talented artist isn't super popular. So I'm going to watch, cause you got skills.

Just stopping by to give my appreciation for the work you do. You have some great pieces. All entertaining to watch- some do stand out quite a lot. You should make them available as prints.

On a more personal note I mostly like the way you make use of the canvas, as if there's an entry point for the subject in the painting, and as it makes his entry changes the reality of the space it comes into contact. This is something a bit complex to appreciate and even to self-realize we (as artists) are actually doing. It's the spaces beyond spaces (and within spaces). It has been approached, in a sense, in cinematographic art, sequential art and also painting. I have come in contact with only a handful of artists and art lessons that managed to touch the subject, but only very briefly. I believe this to be the Holy Grail of art, but its cryptic at best. 

Keep going. You're on to something.

Hey there Lewis, I just got your message. Thanks so much for your kind thoughts on my work, I do have plans to make my work available soon it has just been sourcing a decent print service that can accurately copy my colours! 

I am not sure how I just managed to accidently change my text into italics...but I think this is similar to how my art transpires, I work with my errors and allow things to "just happen" in their own weird little way! I always try to create a story in my head and literally babble on to myself in my head about whats happening while I'm creating, this I think has given me the ability to breathe some life into my pictures!

Yea, that happens to me as well. Hyperactive we are. Strange to others we might seem. (That's me channelling a pseudo Yoda)
