My Bio
My name is Alastair, I'm a Scot working as a fire engineer for RISE in Sweden after completing an MEng at Edinburgh Univeristy. But besides my real profession I really enjoy creating things in my spare time, mostly photography and abstract 3D, and just about anything that may inspire someone to do the same.

I'm also the administrator for the international art collective The Luminarium

Project Aurora: Blue - Out Now

Project Aurora: Blue - Out Now

For this exhibition we are certainly feeling the Blues. A color often associated with water and the heavens, a color that has seen diverse use and highly prized since ancient days across different cultures, coveted by royalty and artisans alike. Blue is a color of power, authority and divinity. A color of balance and equilibrium. It also evokes a sense of calmness, tranquility, and peace. But apart from the benign and benevolent, blue is also associated with lifelessness, gloom, and sadness. It can also represent the darkness or the night. Steeped with diverse meaning, it is no wonder that the color blue holds the record of being the world's most favorite color. Please enjoy these creations from our Aurora Artists and may they help you with the blues. You can see the release on ---------- The pack has 6 pieces from me in there (3 solo, 3 collabs) alongside loads of other excellent pieces by lots of artists. It is our biggest release yet, and quite possibly
The next Project Aurora release will be with you soon!

(Not Very) Monthly Feature 3: June

So towards the end of last year I started posting some feature journals with the intention of doing one every month... that didn't work out very well as I managed all of 2 months, but nevermind, I will do them when I get the chance and remember, so here is another one! Similar rules apply, pieces I have found since the last one with under 50 favs (at the time of posting this). Hopefully spreading a little extra light on pieces which may have been missed by people here on DA. So without any more rambling from me, here is some great art for you all to feast your eyes on! Cover art by @Vexatiousss. And then my latest piece (a collab with the fantastic @GrungeTV): Have a great day all!
