IF "Climbing"



My first IF in ages! I had a funny (ish) one in mind but in the end two therapeutic doodles won out. I have no idea why the moon ladder... guess that says something about my subconscious at present...?

Strong, simple concepts beautifully rendered. What more can you ask for? Nice work.

I like the moon ladder. It made me laugh.

I love your illustrations. The similar colours conjure up for me that the person climbing got to the top of the mountain and continued up the ladder to the moon.I wonder what a third illustration would look like? nice work glad to see you on IF again.

Wow! I absolutely love your work and I am now an offical fan. Your work reminds me of an artist I got turned onto at the LA Art Show this last week. His name was Jorge Fick. There was a gallery booth at the LA Art Show dedicated to him. Hats off to you. Great stuff.

Fantastic pieces, I love them both. They have a real melancholy feel, What happened to the mountaineers ? Did they make it back? A need to get away?

Had a look at your site, truly inspirational!

The moon ladder is awesome. Love the simple graphic quality of it. Says so much with so little. And it's good to see you on IF again.

I love that haze like effect on both of these, kinda dreamy! I like the notion of climbing to the moon, as long as someone was holding the ladder of course.

I really like that - the symmetrical composition, the colours, the haziness, the concept. Really nice.

Both lovely, I like the moon ladder best. You and Tomas (link on my site) used a similar theme for this, you can both be very poetic I think, or possibly I mean lyrical.

Moon ladder rocks! Could it be based on our last chat? ;-) I'll buy a 36x24 print! If you don't start a shop, I will ;-) In all seriousness, the moon ladder pulls you in; I began an ascent, although you could easily consider a descent. Brilliant! I will be looking out for the 'IF' postcard collection or bound book!
