I'm trying to let myself be more open these days....
looking for acceptance in a world that seems lonely and very strange can be daunting.

I recorded this vocal cover off the cuff,
havent really practiced much recently but decided i want to share who i am and what i am about.
there will be more and more stuff like this over time... i'm feeling more like singing again these days :nod:
and yes, i actually finally filmed myself face on with a camera O.O

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.

Shadows And Dust Preview by simonpark81
Shadows And Dust Preview
preview of an upcoming work...
We are nothing more than shadows and dust,
star-matter dipping it's toe in mortality before rejoining its greater mass....

Waiting at the Fish Stop... by simonpark81
Waiting at the Fish Stop...
Ring the bell, and all those fathoms cease to matter anymore...
He can take you anywhere, and lives to do so -
so come on, take a ride on the Fish Bus!
The only way to travel the briney depths of Parkland's oceans!

once again, inspired by my brilliantly epic goldfish, the biggest of which is now over a foot long :squee:
helped along by the musical stylings of Entheogenic, Slipknot (grey chapter is awesome) and OK GO.
Yes, i know... i said Slipknot and OKGO in the same sentence. well, this is what you get of this kind of thing :iconyeahplz:

I'm not sure if this is more surreal or fantasy... but since they are obviously breathing fine underwater, im goin with surreal :P
drawn using pigment ink fineliners, biro, HB pencil, prismacolors, blender pencils and lyra youngster chunky coloured pencils on A4 heavy-duty card. took well over 100 hours in total.
Loading...
I know i'm mostly known around here for my art and my abrupt approach to everything...
but -
I also write music and dabble in other forms of artistry.
I thought I would share my music online at first with only my friends,
but then i figured why not let everyone and anyone hear it?
after all, once it is online it can be seen by pretty much anyone.
And of course, music soothes even the savage beast.
So here is a tune written by me for my son.
www.facebook.com/video.php?v=8…

I know i'm not the greatest guitar player; only been playing a few years.
But i love what i do, and i do what i love.
Namaste, friends :wave:

Hello!!!! Guess who's back in her old account and missed you and everybody oh so very much?? I've got to catch back up on your gallery after so long. I'm sure it will be mind-blowing as always :D. Just wanted to pop my head in and say hi! ^^

Eh, I use Elle now as a shortened version of Elizabeth. Everyone still calls me Liz but that's because they chose that name for me. The great thing about the internet is that you get to pick your own nicknames :D. Also, I bet you have levelled up quite a bit!!! I can't wait to see. It might take me a while to sift through everything but I'll do my best! I'm doing okay. I'm actually getting married in 2017. I finally set up an office and have had a little free time to write and draw. Max has a new job so I've found a lot of time for hobbies. I even started playing the ukulele. My parents had them and insisted I try. My mom goes through some weird and interesting fazes. She even started felting and decided to felt a big pile of gray rats...It actually looked cool. Sorry I haven't been on Facebook much. I really try to avoid that site for multiple reasons. It's a very vice-like obligation that gets very overwhelming very quickly. The only things I ever sign on for are to check up on relatives and to post as admin for my job's profile. I posted a big old journal for all of the other random things that have happened to me in case I missed anything. I didn't mention my marriage on there yet though. There's been a bunch of stuff going on since Max changed jobs.

How are you doing? :D I've missed you! And I will take that huggle thank you very much and give one in return!

i see :nod: sounds like life is moving quickly for you!
i agree about facebook; i only ever really pop onto it for a few mins at a time, to see if anyone has messaged me; i check on my deviant more often! for us, too, life has a very weird way of running faster and faster. since :iconbizkt66: became an electrical engineer, we have had a lot less time on our hands, and have had to learn how to live apart through the weekdays - evenings we are always very tired and dont really get time together.
sucks, but eventually our master plan will come to fruition and we will TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!

you're very welcome! i like how much variance you use. all too often clothes designers stick to a certain style or way of doing things, and this sells their skills short. you are constantly evolving what you do, and obviously enjoy it - im sure you will keep going from strength to strength!
hope you have a great day my friend:huggle:
