For anyone who isn't able to attend the shows, or who just can't wait to pick up signed prints or books, my online shop is a virtual convention table 24 hours a day! Sales don't include cheerful banter from a scruffy silver-haired looney, but some would say that's one of the advantages of online shopping. Calendars, books and all that other stuff can be found here - www.mattdixon.co.uk/shop.htm

Plans are already in place for my 2015 calendar and work is already well under way on my third pin-up book which we will hopefully see before the end of the year. Perhaps that won't be the only new book, and maybe there will be other surprises too!

Peace, love and heavy metal.

Just a note to thank everyone for their kind birthday messages, and for the surprisingly affectionate response to my new image. 'Hollow' is the first of a new batch of robot pieces which will be collected into a book later in the year so it's been great to have such a positive reaction. Sorry I don't have the time to respond to so many comments individually, but I really do appreciate them all.

I hope you'll look as kindly on Hollow's rusty brothers and sisters!

Updates on the robot book will be posted over on my Facebook page as I go along, so please follow me over there if you want to stay up to date with progress on that project - www.facebook.com/ArtOfMattDixo…

For all the folks who have requested prints, I don't sell through DA, but you can order prints of anything in my gallery here direct from me through my website - www.mattdixon.co.uk/shopprints…

I've had a increasing number of messages about art theft on DeviantArt recently. I think it's great that this community is concerned that artist's work is being used appropriately, and that individuals have the time and energy to draw attention to potentially contentious posts. I'd like to express my gratitude to those who have contacted me and hope that you will continue to do so if you feel it necessary.

However, I think it's important to get this stuff into perspective. Copying my work for practice isn't theft. It's extremely flattering for me and an entirely legitimate way to study. I copied other artist's work when I was starting out and I learned a great deal from those exercises. I'd suggest that there are many more accomplished artists than me whose work could be studied, but I have no problem with my work being used in this way.

My book, 'The Fantasy Artist's Figure Drawing Bible', specifically encourages this in fact. Anyone wanting to work from the line art provided in that book or to follow the exercises within is absolutely free to do so, and to share the results online. It's an instructional book and that's precisely how it's supposed to be used.

So let's chill just a bit on the theft thing. A bit of borrowing around DA really isn't anything to get too worked up about. Just to get the perspective I mentioned before, art theft is when your painting of Shub-Niggurath turns up in an episode of South Park - www.mattdixon.co.uk/blog/South…

Peace, love and heavy metal.
I'll be exhibiting at the following shows -

It's been a whole year since my last journal update. As there's every chance that it'll be another 12 months before the next one, I'll try and make this one count..!

I'm delighted to report that two of my pieces, Snow Hunters ( fav.me/d39isng ) and Selkie ( fav.me/d2ssy4n ) have been selected for Gallery Provocateur's Frank Frazetta tribute exhibition. The show opens on March 18, 2011 and runs for 3 months at Gallery Provocateur, 2125 N Rockwell, Chicago, IL 60647, USA with all gallery proceeds donated to charity.
