My Bio
well, yes. I am mad and extremely obsessive!

I love fighting, through martial arts etc and i have an extensive weapons collection (all be it weapons that i actually use in class, not display types!)

but i tend to spend my life these days painting and drawing scenes of Napoleonic ware fare.

so obsessed I am with the life and battle tactics of this era that i even wrote my 10,000 word dissertation on 'historical and technical accuracies in ships and ship paintings of the Napoleonic era' for my Illustration degree!!!

pretty hardcore I know, but i love that nerdy accuracy. and that has shown through in my work since. all uniforms and ships i paint and draw for the POB stuff and Cornwall stuff is all accurate to the exact day and place in time.

i also am completely obsessed with three characters at the moment; Stephen Maturin from Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey Maturin canon. Takezo Kensai, or Adam Monroe from TV's Heroes and Sgt Patrick Harper. Three awesomely awesome characters that are currently inspiring me, and yet in my mind, all three of them hate each other XD

ya can't win!!

anyway, a massive backlog of sketch books to put on line so please,


Current Residence: cambo!
Favourite genre of music: Renaissance, prog and Metal
