I am the Lightsmith.

For many years I dabbled in photography and art, trying to either reproduce reality or to create fantasy. I was not much good at either.

Then I opened my eyes.

All around us there is a world that is neither reality nor fantasy. A world of light that exists but which cannot be seen. It is a world of wonder, of power and of astonishing beauty.

It is a world lit with the light of infrared.

Over many years, I have learnt to see the world through infrared eyes. And an infrared heart.

Everywhere I look, I have come to discover beauty unseen. Every flower reveals a new bloom. Every cloud unveils its invisible new lining. Every landscape becomes an alien world that, somehow, we have always lived in.

No matter how often you have seen the world, it lies in wait for you anew in the world of infrared.

Welcome to the world of the Lightsmith.

I will take you on a journey. Using specially modified infrared cameras and unique image enhancement techniques, we will visit places together that you thought could only exist in heaven. Or hell. We will time travel, visit distant planets, transcend dimensions.

Prepare yourself to see the world as you have never seen it before.

Come, open your eyes to a new world. My world.

They are not terrorists, not in the gun and bomb sense. But they are terrorists never the less. And I have just been the victim of such a terrorist. / “They Might Be Giants” is a 1971 film staring George C Scott and Joanne Woodward. …

Well thanks RedBubble. How about I give up on you altogether?

Just received this email (which you all would) about decommissioning LIGHT YELLOW t-shirts. This is my main sales item and always in this colour. It looks and works best in this yellow so now I can expect zero sales. / Thanks RedBubble. For nothing. / I am seriously going to look around for another print/delivery service. One that does not pull the rug from under its people. / Hello, / One of…

Pillow Contempt

I have nothing against the new throw pillows but I don’t want my art on them. But that is the default. At 20% pricing. The ONLY way to change this is a blanket repricing of ALL my works or individually going through EVERY piece to knock off the pillows. / Is ANYONE else out there ANNOYED by this change? / As an artist, the presentation of my art is a big thing to me and having images stu…
