Journal History

Hey, Y'all....
It's about time I said another piece 'bout the world, modern society,
and the idiosyncracies of living within a system that cares more about profits than prophets.

As we approach the shortest day of the year, it is a time to reflect.
Time to reflect upon what has been, and time to fathom what is yet to come.

Time to remember family and friends above all else....
But there are millions out there that have no family. no home, or shelter, or food.

When sleeping under a bridge is your only option, life changes in many ways.
Money has much less value than a warm blanket.
Food has much more meaning than a job. The world becomes cold and callous.
People look at you as though you have some kind of disease;
they fear you,
because you do not have what they have.

And isn't that the dumbest thing you have ever heard? They fear you because they have more than you?

Proof, in and of itself, that materialism is just greed wrapped in a shiny veneer...
With official holographic stickers to prove you spent more on it than others.

Remember this when you see those adverts, touting how the newest console only costs £500.
Remember this, when you are eating your christmas dinner....

Not because i dont want you to enjoy it,
but because you MUST be thankful for what you get.
All it takes is a few weeks of bad luck, and you, too, could be homeless and destitute.
I know, i been there.
So this yuletide,
Appreciate what you get, appreciate what you have.
Because nothing lasts..... but nothing is forgotten.

Simon Park
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
Biography:
Simon Park has been an avid drawer 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.

Devourer by simonpark81
Devourer
So! The latest official project I can share with you guys for the first time is here!!!
:iconyeahplz:
So this pretty lady is the devourer.

I have been in recent conversations and making arrangements with
    THE AUTOPSY BOYS
A Leeds based band who are something else entirely.
Their music is a kind of blend of punk and thrash rock,
Their lyrics are based mostly in 80's horror films, games and ultra-violence.

T-shirts for sale here : autopsyboys.com/shop at brilliantly affordable prices!

Disclaimer: The site contains gore, women in underwear and violent imagery. if you are of a weak constitution, under 18 or simply not into that kind of thing, you been warned. The views contained therein are not nessecarily the views of this artist; I am simply a vessel with which these guys can share their vision. viewer discretion is advised.

for my watchers: I am still working on my surreal landscapes and a few other mind-bending things, so dont y'all fret none. the future is not all about gore for this artist!

The Unborn by simonpark81
The Unborn
Practice for an upcoming slurry of works.
I'm working along the lines of a cover for a made-up 80's horror film just off the top of my head here.
I hope my regular watchers are preparing themselves to be shocked and surprised by what is to follow.

So I have been in discussions with a band recently. They are pretty damn hardcore.
If you like punk music, metal or have a particular taste for 80's horror films with lots of gore,
Then these guys are gonna be right up your alley.

For the hundred or so people watching me for my beautiful, rainbow-drenched works,
of psychadelia and surreality, fantasms and wonderment....
the poop is about to hit the fan.
I'm sorry y'all, but bear with me, I assure you i will be working on personal projects still.

Anyone wanting to check out "the Autopsy Boys" music, check this out:

And prepare yourself... for changes.

Or are you just facets of my own subconcious?

all ight, let me backtrack a little;
here goes...

Belief in ones' self is nessecary.

there is an old saying ; a watched pot never boils.

If you have a basic grasp of quantum physics, then surely you know by now that atoms only hold their form because there is focus.
this focus must be from a living thing. this is important - not just a sentient thing, but generally a living one.
this could be a man or a mouse;
your average lazy wal-mart shopper could be part of this experiment, or we could use stephen hawking.
wouldnt make a blind bit of difference. if they focus on those photons, they will alter their form.
protons and electrons can literally change their very nature, depending on how much focus is put upon them.

it's about time this was put to use; travelling at the speed of light is only a movement of particle-matter through space-time.
surely we can achieve more than that? sometimes it seems as though even the best minds our world has to offer only care about whether or not they will get funding - and so only study what brings them funding -
halting the very progress our civilisation needs to get beyond the simple problems we have been making for ourselves here on earth.

i'm perambulating again.
i'm gonna stop now.
'bye.
