My Bio
Simon Park has been an avid artist his whole life, striving to create a style that is unique, provocative and powerful.

Influenced by modern fantasy films, comics, orchestral scores and rennaissance art, he uses cross-hatching and vivid colours, With a heavy emphasis on dynamics, scale, tiny details and down to earth characters to drive forward the old adage that every picture tells a thousand words.

He does not usually intend a specific story during the creation process, but rather builds an elaborate snapshot for the viewer to imagine a story for.
Many of his works are intended to open dialogue; to embrace or question ideals and ideologies of modern society, and look upon them with new eyes.
He relishes in hiding in plain sight details which the viewer can find upon a second or third viewing.

His time not spent with his partner :iconbizkit66: and their children, or curled up somewhere drawing, is spent hiking, mountain climbing and meditating.

I do commissions for points too =P

AI and art

1 min read
So recently here on DA there have been loads of images being uploaded by people using AI to generate the images for them. This isnt cool, guys, and its not your art. Its been created by something other than you and your own talents and in effect you're just riding the coat taols of success of the creators of rhe AI program. There. Im done
