  • PHOTOGRAPHY

    photos

    I studied photography at the University of Derby, learning to shoot, process and print Ilford black and white prints. I have used a wide range of cameras (Video, SLRs, Medium format and D-SLRs) including Nikon, Olympus, Canon, Sony and Lomography. I embraced the advent of digital photography owning some of the first Kodak digital cameras. Since the introduction of the iPhone 4S the Hipstamatic app has become my favoured device (although I have bags packed with the other gear should it be needed).

    that-there-was

    ART

    “An artist, through and through” – PC Format magazine.

    I have worked with a range of traditional materials including pen and ink, acrylic, watercolour, graphite, marker and slate.

    I have also created illustrations and digital designs for PC Format magazine, Mac Art & Design magazine, CAMRA and for the Wirksworth Crown Yard Well Dressing (as Art Director for the British Association of Myasthenics).

    DIGITAL ART

    “Really artisitic and uber kuhl!!” – BlueEyedBoy

    Art by Sean Woodward

    1600×1200 pixel wallpapers of my digital art can be at the DeviantArt gallery.

    My work as an artist has been inspired by Salvador Dali, Miro, Tanguay, Dave McKean, Todd McFarlane, Steve Dikto, Clint Langley and Carlos Ezquerra. I have created digital abstract art using applications from MetaCreations and Adobe as well as watercolours, acrylics, mixed-media colages, slate, pen and ink and pencil drawings.

    My illustration covers a number of genres including fantasy art, Science fiction and abstract.

    MAIL ART

      

    [New Kindle/iPad publications coming 2012]

    I have created a number of artistamps (also known as faux postage) both material and digital. One of the first examples is in the private collection of the JCM (Jas W Felter Cyberspace Museum).

    I was appointed the Ambassador to Cyberspace for the International Union of Mailartists, in 1998. I was also an Admin for the Facebook chapter of The Amorphous International Mail Art Network .

    I have curated a number of mail art projects which are documented together with my own work at Planet Dada Mailart. (formerly Planet Dada Studios)

    I also edit the irregular mailart zine 191, which can be downloaded for free from Dragonheart Press.
