Facebook art page

Hi -started sorting a Facebook page for my artworks

https://www.facebook.com/HaydensArtworks?ref=ts&fref=ts

Going to be a kind of archival page with sketches, doodles and finished art. Also, stuff I make :)

Please have a look, like and spread the word. Thank you.

Meanwhile: the business ends of a Hero warhammer from Skyrim. WIP

Hi. I'm currently re-organising where I store my work digitally and where it is displayed. Finding dead links or images not found. Also, finding some images are everywhere. Unfortunately I'm also finding some have been copied or used commercially without permission.

To start: anything on Photobucket needs moving: some images have gone from Pintrest to re-posting all over Tumblr for example. So I am thinking to make a Facebook page and website as archival storage for viewing with links to Pintrest, blah blah etc. Anyone have views on this?

Next: shopping cart or just where to order prints? I have prints of some pieces if anyone is interested plus anything else will be available to order for now.

Meantime, mech sketch anyone?

Events and shows

Through the summer into autumn I attended various events and shows in various capacities -from volunteer for ArtsGateway Milton Keynes to one of two main guest artists at the Glasshouse at Waddesdon Manor. The latter was both last minute and very successful.

From July onwards everything became busier: relaunch of a tired art gallery as an Arts Centre; the studios and facilities build at Arts Central; requests for cosplay costumes and props, especially steampunk. It has meant a number of my own projects have been on hold. More about all that later. Meanwhile another couple of sketches.

. . . and I'm back.

It has been a long time since I updated any of my blogs. This one had repeated troll attacks so I left it for I while .. just deleting and blocking occasionally. However, since my last fleeting appearance here I have been very busy and have a had a great time. Lots of events, new ventures, new friends and of course new work.

In the meantime, here is a sketch:



I call it a doodle as I did a bit here and there whilst watching my younger son at Trampoline Club.

Back soon with updates on what's been happening and of course some images. Thanks for looking.

Old work for children's book


Another illustration from the same children's book -again, using fabric dyes not paint which meant working very fast . . . about 20 minutes. A bit bleach and black fineliner when dry.

An oldie I did for children's book many years ago.


Done using fabric dyes and bleach with a little white acrylic on the 'sunbeams'.
