It was absolutely freezing but my hounds loved it.

Art Collaborations & Features

Hello!

We are now in that strange time of year when we are waiting for 2018 to tick down and the New Year to start. I hope you are well and that 2019 is a great year for you.

I’ve had the chance to collaborate with two very talented friends and edit their amazing photographic work.

The first is with Kaylea Smith and this is an edit I did with her wonderful shot. Kaylea really does have a great eye for perspective.

The second is with my friend Gav Brickwood whom I’ve known now for 5 years. I’ve been an avid follower of his photography, he really is very inspiring. This is a real artsy edit of his work. This was a sculpture that he found whilst working in Nuremberg.

Big Thanks for letting me go artistically nuts with your work, Gav and Kaylea.

I’ve been lucky enough to have been featured in Instragram over the last few days and these are those images.

I’m always surprised when this happens, it helps to spread my art to a wider audience and I’ve met some really awesome people along the way.

And here last but not least is new art that I’ve just finished working on. It’s a floral illustration with some digital wizardry involved!

A huge Thank You to all of you! If you are on Instagram then drop by, follow and say hi! HAPPY NEW YEAR! See you in 2019!

Store Opening & My Art

Hi everyone.

It’s been a long time since I wrote but now, such a lot is changing in my little art world, that it will be good to share what’s happening with you. I hope you’ll be inspired and enjoy what’s to come.

I’ve been enjoying every minute of my creative time. For me Art is my escape, a kind of therapy when I let myself become immersed in what I’m doing. Everything else around me, even time disappears. Over the last couple of weeks here’s the art that I’ve been finishing!

Im pleased to announce that my online store is now open too! My first collection consists of 5 artworks, which have got the most features and likes across social media. I’ll be adding original works as well as new additions to my store when I can, not only from the new art I’m creating but the most liked by you, from the last few years.

Cazartco’s first art collection

Please go and have a look at my store! I’d really appreciate any feedback you have. I’m nervous and excited to be finally realising this long time ambition of mine to be able to sell my art. I really hope you love it.

Along side regular updates in a regular blog from now on, I’d also like to share some of my methods and processes with you and some background stories of the art I create.

Thank you all for your friendship and support. Remember to drop into see my latest projects and if you are on Instagram or Facebook come say hello @cazartco.

From There to Here

 

The 700
The 700

I have been sitting here thinking about how on earth to start my first blog in over seven months.  Can I explain or put into words, the huge changes that have happened in my life since I last wrote?  I can’t. Nothing I would say could do justice, or pay sufficient respect to all those people that kept me going.  They were there in the hardest times and are still now encouraging and supporting me. I can’t thank them all enough, they had faith that I could carry on.  Even when I thought I didn’t know how to.

Art has been the one thing that has at times taken me to a place of calm and security.  I lose hours drawing and I become a happier person as a result. I may not have been writing much but drawing,  painting and photography has been a daily routine.  I joined Instagram last year and through that community, I made some really good friends, it’s is also amazing the things you learn just by looking at other peoples creativity.  I have used it as a sounding board for my stuff too, getting far more positive feedback than I would have thought.  Having over 700 regular followers of my work through Instagram, now gives me the objectivity to fill my galleries here with the most popular work. I tried to keep my opinion out of it,  as I tend to be a little too critical maybe.

Over the last couple of weeks or so, this is what I have worked on, visually speaking.  Moreover I hope you enjoy the art here.  I promise to keep in touch for here on in, even if I just let the art tell a story of it’s own.
