from small things..

I’m hoping for inspiration..

This week has been a big push. Finally my online art store is open. I’ve pretty much been correcting bits and bobs all week. I’ve also been trying to navigate some kind of plan of what’s to come. I’ve needed some art time too, but even that’s been difficult to squeeze in.

I’m looking back over social media to see which of my artworks have been liked or featured the most. This will determine which art to add on my store to sell. I’ve learnt through social media that sometimes something that you think isn’t good enough to share, is in fact someone’s favourite. It’s a process that I think might take some time, but it’s always good to go back over what you’ve done before. It rekindles an interest in a process or media that you haven’t used in a while.

During this I came across this illustration from 2014. It’s still one of my personal favourites.

I’m now starting to doodle… back with an ink pen in my hand, whilst I’m thinking, from small things, Big things Grow.

Here is some new photography from this week. This was taken in my back garden with my Nikon, just as the full moon was rising.

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.

Hey everyone.   And this is my first drawing of 2013 and the start of this years Art!!.  This is a homage to an ‘old skool’ style of working for me, one which started about 17 years ago.  It seemed fitting to retrace some old steps in my art as little has survived from those times. I basically walked away from a life in 1997 that had been very difficult with little more than 2 boxes and a couple of bin bags of possessions, so left older artwork, probably to be burnt to cinders.  The important thing is that I could start again, with 2 beautiful daughters, an amazing best friend and a clapped out Citroen 2CV called Clueless.  I began living.

This is the piece of work that I went through a love, hate relationship with, probably because at first it reminded me of that other existence.   The person I once was and who I am now.  It contains, if you look closely, some hidden little messages.

Hope your all keeping snug, it’s damn freezing here in Cambridge.  So I’m layered up to the nines against a howling wind!  Take care peeps.
