and of course a happy new year.

I have now finished up all the artwork for 2013 so looking forward to having a nice couple of weeks break then piling back into working again in January.  Hopefully things will go a bit smoother in 2014, to be honest I will be happy to put this year behind me now.

Anyway guys I wish you all have an amazing xmas and new year!

Well sorry for the lack of artwork recently, I have been so busy with various things as well as some artwork I have been working on for commission stuff (which rarely gets posted here or on the website) but I am about to work on something exciting which I should be able to upload once it has been approved and finished... it's not top secret but it is on the very down low. 

Been having some wrist problems recently which has seen me unable to work on some things too, I think it is on the mend but still slightly painful (today especially).

Well it's been pretty awesome to come back to so many faves comments and especially seeing everyone's artwork, I think I came back to 3.344 pieces of artwork so been spending the morning having a good look at them you talented bunch :P

SO whats been keeping me away mainly? Well, I just haven't had much time to do any personal pieces of artwork and the inspiration has been lacking due to tiredness and doing a lot of manual work during the day trying to build a garage then trying to relax in the evening, it's all been a bit too hectic.

Anyway thank you all for the faves, comments and new watches and keep being awesome artists, look out for some artwork hopefully going up soon :D

Hey all, Sorry I haven't been about recently. things got so busy and I have had to do quite a lot of commission work.  But I will have something shocking to announce soon... 

Thank you all for my birthday messages I had a good birthday but didn't really do too much to celebrate.

I am working on some non commission artwork at the moment but it might be a week or two until I get to put it up but I wanted to just check in with everyone and let you all know that even though artwork isn't going up on here.  it is still keeping me very busy indeed!

I hope you all have a wonderful week and weekend :D

Well just a quick weekend update really, Unfortunately I have become sick again but at least I feel a bit better than last time but, once again, I am losing my voice and annoyed about picking up something else.  I never used to get ill and this year I have been Ill since the start on and off.  I am taking some time off art until about Wednesday, I need to look up my "to do" list.  and also have to say I am open to commissions if people are wanting anything done, I would say prices are fair.   I have been doing quite a lot of "fun" artwork recently, with Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors poster/DVD replacement artwork (not posting it up on here, it's only for a select few people really) and the Zaranyzerak artwork which was a hell of a lot of fun to do and record, I want to do some regular art before launching back into something super nerdy again.  

Also I want to tweak my website at some point, as well as getting the Verminart T-shirt reprinted (I had to send it back twice hopefully 3rd time is the charm) so I am looking at quite a busy couple of weeks and that's without factoring in regular life, car repairs and other stuff.

Anyway its always good to be busy.  I hope you all have an awesome week

Hello all of you out there who read these things.

I have finally finished my 80's retro painting, Illness delayed it a bit, but it was also a huge scale piece of artwork. The huge version of it weighs in uncompressed at 87 megabytes in PTG format and has so much detail in it, I had to shrink it down for memory usage purposes (PSD format it was sapping over gig of memory to work on) and for deviant art, Down from 4000x3000 pixels to 900x800, what I am saying is...the printable version of it is really very high quality.  I tried to layer in so much retroness and detail with most of the things I grew up with as a kid which were awesome.  

If you haven't seen it already check it out: vermingti.deviantart.com/art/B…

So what's next? Nothing on the previous piece's scale that is for certain... I am going to give you all a clue, it's something else 80's inspired, one more clue...youtu.be/MqL_SO2thsE

Then after that I will resume the normal work load again as well as commissions and etc.  

Thanks for all the likes and faves that have been flooding in, you are all awesome!

Have a great week

Well I have lost count how many weeks I have been sick for now.  I literally have no voice still, its a real struggle to get an words out that don't sound like a frog choking on Barry White with Oscar the grouch thrown in for good measure.

I do feel a lot better physically though, My sleeping patterns are way off, I have nodded off quite a few times at my desk in the middle of day and also not been able to sleep properly some nights, which is really annoying. But with me feeling better I am hoping to start a nice retro inspired piece of artwork later this week (maybe tonight, I have had this planned for so long but when I got ill it fell by the wayside).  I haven't really done anything massive for a while so it will be nice to get working on something big.

Anyway. I hope you all have an awesome week.

Hey guys,

Just a quick entry, I have been pretty sick the last 2 weeks so output has been quite low, I am still pretty ill (I think its a really heavy chest infection and I have lost my voice) so I am just trying to get it over and done with, I have some pieces I am working on that the moment, not sure when they will be finished but as soon as I am back to 100% I will be working on them again.  

I hope everyone is well and good

Stay Arty

Well first real journal entry for 2013 and it's to inform you about the snow we have got in the uk... oh god! I just made a slight joke about the crappy mid 90's song by a guy called Snow and his song... Informer! terrible!!! anyway...

Yeah its snowed pretty hard here in the UK, living on a hill pretty much means I am snowed in, luckily I managed to get some shopping yesterday and have only got plans for artwork today.

So already it's been a busy artworking month and we are only about half way through.  I have quite alot of plans for artwork at the moment so probably the journal updates will suffer a bit, but as always I will upload the artwork to DA as well as my own facebook and website.

Just wanted to update and to say... stay warm, stay safe and enjoy the snow (if you are in the UK)

Pobb :)

Hey everyone,

I wish you all an excellent X-mas and a happy new year, I won't be putting out any new artwork until the new year (just a bit of a recharge and relax, if you can call this time of year "Relaxing").  I hope you stay safe and enjoy the festive season.

Merry Christmas

Pobb :)

Hey everyone I hope everyone is fine and dandy!

I have been quite busy over the last couple of weeks and its running up to x-mas so artwork has suffered a bit, but I am going to get something out in the next week or so which is x-mas related and then put things on hold until after x-mas.

I finally got a Vermin Art T-shirt, which looked awesome but turned out a bit broken on the seam at the neck so sent that back and waiting for a replacement.  I am hoping that in the new year things will take off a bit more (I need to start making some money, too many things have fallen through) and Reckless Depravity needs a home to start making money again... who knows what will happen in the new year. Still can't complain too much as I enjoy the DJ'ing but basically ending up out of pocket at the moment.

I don't mean to moan in this journal so I will shut up :P I will wish everyone a happy X-mas now I hope you all have a great one.

I won't be able to do much artwork this week as I have some other things to sort out as well as an update to my Computer (command centre)  I have updated the Vermin Art website to make some more things available to purchase in A3, A3, A2 and A1 sizes now.

www.verminart.weebly.com

Also working on getting a T-shirt printed this week as well as some other little things.  Some sketches to do when I have some time all in all I am pretty busy.

Idea wise I am quite stumped as what to do next as a piece. (I hate artblocks).

Anyway have a great week everyone!

to update things here :)

So went to a gig on Thursday to see my mates band support Jett Black, very good gig all round and it seems my artwork has impressed and may very well become a T-shirt design for the band as well as possibly doing something for another project (I have to curse my brain as I already have loads of images in my head as designs for the project).  I have been sketching already.  I Hope this is the start of something, I really need to get my artwork paying out, I love doing artwork but its been a bit of a struggle recently.

I think that having so many ideas has become a part of my problem lately (apart from feeling pretty lonely and a bit down and lacking chatting buddies), having alot of headaches and ideas and feeling so tired just has made me feel like someone else, but I really feel alot more perky today.

Been viewing some awesome artwork from you guys as well recently, alot of which cheers me up :D

Right I suppose I should get back to being bored :P and listening to loads of rock and metal, have a great weekend and again... Happy halloween month :D

So getting a bit nearer to my fave celebration Halloween... and I am not quite myself recently, alot of headaches and tiredness I am sure its nothing serious and will go away soon if not it means a trip to the docs

I have some more artwork on the way this week, I probably wont complete it very quickly but I will get busy with them.

Anyway I think I will probably not be updating again until after halloween so I will wish you all a happy one :D

Who drank all the mead... I havent had any in years but I fancy some (damn its meady goodness)

I have had a lovely week of from artwork and have a couple of ideas to do this week, I have been struggling with massive headaches though and hopefully they are gone now I have been ok the last 2 days so fingers crossed.  

I technically didn't stop with the artwork (as usual a break never actually means a break for me...) getting some animations done for Buxy's website and also doing 5 halloween comics (6 if you count one for Life Sauce) which will all be coming out at the end of next month.  

I haven't been DJing for a couple of weeks aswell but I think I have a couple of gigs coming up which require the usual metal and rock DJ'ing so should be good fun as well as planning for the X-mas party.

So all in all a boring week...but a well needed relaxing one I hope you all have had a good week and will have another great week this week.

Back to listening to Thin Lizzy for me :D

So worked on a big overhaul of the VerminArt website and have now switched over to getting prints done elsewhere which makes it cheaper for the customer and still provides more profit for myself and the quality is just as good as DA's printing (In fact having compared the two I think the new service provides better quality but its close)

So now all my prints are available at verminart.weebly.com/ and I have deactivated all but 1 print on DA (It wont let me deactivate the last print for some reason)

I will still upload my work here, but it just wont be "buyable" through DA.

Anyway I have been stressing out about the changes so its now time to kick back and relax a bit, I hope you all have a great weekend.

Hey everyone,

This week will have be being pretty busy... I am going to do something that was planned for a Bands artwork, but its all up in the air and looks like they wont use my idea, but I am going to do it as a peice of art :)

I have had a busy week last week with Buxy now over for a bit,  I spent a day completing the new comic and managed to do 19 of them in one day (its a much more pun based comic and much easier to create) and they are all getting released once a week every friday at its own website: www.lifesauce.thecomicseries.com.  Also managed to get another fantasy piece done which came out pretty good and I thought I had better mature tag it even though the mermaid has no nipple :P Hey she is a fish lady afterall! Once I have got this band artwork related thing out the way I have nothing on my schedule so I will be revamping the website once again as I am not really getting any business and I am pondering moving away from DA for prints and have one of my favourite bits of artwork I have done coming to me in the post so I can test out a new service for posters/prints which if its any good will be almost a quater of the base price of DA prints!  But we will see

I keep getting massive headaches again all last week I had them and its a little worrying but I hate doctors and paracetamol seems to hold them off a bit :D

Anyway have a great week

Well I feel a bit sad now that season 3 is over and done with but I have plans for season 4 following on from the ending on season 3 which will see Buxy in a new setting with dave being dragged along....I have plans for season 5 way way down the line too.

Well even though season 3 was only 25 comics it feels like its been going for ages!!  I decided to do what I did with the other comics and compile a video compilation of it which can be watched here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLlZmq…

I think there will be a couple of specials for halloween and x-mas but nothing set in stone.

So whats next?  Well I have no plans for when season 4 will be coming but I am going to say early 2013 which will give me a good break to work on the comics and other stuff, I have plans for a Comic Fury only comic which is currently waiting for me to finish it.  

Everything Buxy related can be found at her own website: www.buxy.thecomicseries.com

Thank you to everyone for reading the comics, the support and love for the comics has been awesome when looking at the stats over at the website and its that which really keeps buxy going.

I have to admit as sad as I am to not be releasing anything Buxy comic related its nice to have time to work on other pieces of artwork again :D

Hope everyone has a great week,

I feel freezing...strange its been a pretty sunny day.

Anyway...So after taking a couple of days off from artwork I came back with two Youtube arty ones as well as finally putting the last Buxy comic together and doing some sketches with some ideas for some possible band EP artwork.  Looks like there won't be much artwork done this weekend as I am DJ'ing for a Hells Bells (AC/DC Tribute) gig and have some PC/DJ music work to do over the weekend as well.

I thought I would link the youtube videos again if people are interested

So been hard at work on artwork this week, getting some ideas and sketches done, finished off one of the other ideas rattling about in my brainless skull as well as planning out 2 more pieces hopefully for this week *depending on other artwork*, started some preliminary designs for another comic whilst Buxy is on her holiday :P and putting some minor finishing touches on Buxy's 125th comic (which has been complete for ages but I wanted to just tweak it and I ended up adding a bit to it sort of a coda on it).

So I have decided to just sit back and relax a bit for a couple of days, If the sketches I have done are approved I will be putting alot of time into them over the next couple of weeks so best to start off fresh minded I reckon.

Anyway I am going to wish everyone a great weekend and week ahead (as usual)
