Time Is Our Biggest Enemy

Illustration, Life, Skulls

This illustration titled {Time Is Our Biggest Enemy} was inspired by the lack of time I seem to have these days, I suppose it can also be looked at on a much grander scale of life and human existence itself. But I genuinely believe that as we get older time seems to go quicker. I have a pile of computer games that I want to play, albums I want to listen to and a basket ball that hasn’t seen a court for a while…

You Will Never Make It

Illustration, Life

At the moment there are loads of spiders hanging around my house and they have all come from one of those fluffy cotton wool looking spider eggs that I found in my garden about a week ago. Its a fantastic sight to see them all hatching and setting off on their little adventures, their webs catching in the breeze, not know where they are going to end up or whether they will make it further…

We Are All Going To Hell

Illustration, Life, Religion

We are all going to hell

I’m not a religious person. I like the art, imagery, statues, cathedrals, churches and the theory of it including the way it gives people hope or helps people focus on something when they don’t have anything or are in troubled times. The catholic church, kind of the Bang and Olufsen of religions,  has always been a bit of a dodgy subject. And theres something not quite right about it that has always bugged me.

Jesus washed peoples feet, and lived in a shed or cave or something right? And rumour has it he was a bit of a magician. So why does the Pope live in an almost golden city with mafia like bodyguards? Hmmmm. This led me to looking up on t’internet what the Pope’s salary is and if he gets Christmas bonuses for being extra pope-like? Turns out he doesn’t have a paycheck like us regular folk. He doesn’t even need money in fact. He is almost above money. Something not right there hey?

Anyway this quick little illustration/print is what spawned from these thoughts. See you all in hell!!!

Website Resurrection!!

Illustration, Life

Welcome to the recently refurbished BelleTragedie.com. It’s taken a while, mainly due to me being  visuals guy rather than a techie guy (DAMN YOU CSS AND WORDPRESS!!!). But I finished it at last and I’m pretty pleased with it. I decided to go for a simpler look with a style that fits the new direction in my illustration – one I hope to develop even further and define my style even more

It’s been a mental few months. And in between getting married, going on a honeymoon, celebrating a bunch of friends hitting 30 and a full time design job I haven’t had much time to concentrate on the website or blog. Somewhere amongst all that crazy stuff I managed to delete all my previous blogs, ….yeah good one. So I’ve decided to start a fresh and this is the first of the new blogs. I have some wicked awsome projects coming up over the next month or so which I’m really excited about, so hopefully I’ll keep up to date with blogs and uploading new artwork.

If you like any of my illustrations and have any comments or if you think my style could work with a project you have I would love to hear from you.
