Sketches for WarHammer 40K – Orks and Grots (goblins) I jotted down ideas for fleshing out a break-away Grot faction, The Bankers Guild – their only premise is to make money (market makers) and profit from legitimate financial dealings(The Galactic Charter) to more extreme and immoral methods, war for profit (sell weapons and armies to clients) sell extortionate medicines to suffering worlds and seize and annex property due to late and outstanding fees. To the most despicable and darker black markets using embezzlement, fraud, kidnapping and ransom, to raising a private army to collect outstanding debts (To ‘collect’ being an ambiguous term receiving payment using threats and warnings to armed force) The Collector approaches the subject, “I’m here to collect, thats my final warning.” He also charges an appearance fee.
Hi All! Here is an outline of myself (how I’m feeling!) and undertaking Cory Huff’s art course, The Abundant Artist – lets see what happens (gulp!)
My name is Kier Eyles and I’m an artist based in the UK. I have the background and techniques in drawing, fine art, live art, filmmaking, 2D & 3D animation and game art, but now I need to promote, market and sell biro drawings effectively. I’m a bit of a hybrid artist with my attention currently focused on Chameleon Swing, a 2D mobile game drawn in biros and playable for the Android (www.firetwin.com + www.kiereyles.com ), and a 3D digital sculptor using Blender and ZBrush.
But the Work I find the most enjoyable, uneasy and more difficult to share with others is my fine art biro drawings – this is the work I would like to brand, promote and sell. Currently I have no sales at the moment because I have this question, who would buy it? It’s possibly too personal, weird and strange (or people call too stylised?) so finding my market and selling would be a huge plus!
I’ve started to create a new body of biro work, 8 pieces focused on the human form both mental and physical which I’m hoping to submit 3 for the Jerwood Drawing Prize in June, but also I want to sell, brand and promote the work
The two images above are part of an eight part series, LoveHate and PowerTrip – biro on A4 paper
And the background for these pieces can be seen in my behance portfolio – https://www.behance.net/gallery/2536011/Portfolio
It feels good to get this all out there!
