been a while....
Ghosts in the Machine
while I'm at it,
city of delusion (was the cover of my calendar, just a pretty bg with no real focus)
Couple of Lexus shots (was a 6page ad), collaboration with NY fashion photographer Kurt Iswarienko, for Surface mag's 10yr anniversary edition
and, a burp of random detail

Phenomenal work, spyrote. "Exit scene" still remains my favorite of yours after years of watching your progression on DA.
When I look at your art, the song that comes to mind is "Angel" by Massive Attack. Have you heard it before? The last image, at first appearance looked like a gloop of matter in the universe, and upon closer inspection, I found the baby fetuses inside of their translucent globules - singular and peaceful against the chaotic interior. They remind me of the fetus at the end of the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey." In ghosts of the machine, can you explain the significance of the man in the backround standing on the staircase? My guess as the viewer is that he's a lookout to what crime or unnatural event is about to take place.
Beyond the plexiglass, the spirits glided.
Keep doing you

thanks V, most certainly have, big fan of them, the background people are just milling around, in a seemingly normal scene, the machine is supposed to be a portal between the living and dead, man made periphery that's been around long enough for nobody to care that there's ghosties flying around :)

Glad to see that newest one on top. Horrifyingly awesome... however if the facility was hiring I'd still happily sign aboard against better judgement.
Is City of Delusion inspired by the Muse song of the same name? Not that it matters because its gorgeous and creates its own melodic adventure. Nice achievement in scale on this one.
Always a pleasure stalking your stuff.

haha, yep, was what I was listening to at the time, it was originally an unused background for the lexus job, so clutched at straws for a title, seemed to fit, cheers gatling
