Help for Heroes Painting Auctioned - and Another Commision

Done for free and auctioned for the Help for heroes charity

This painting I did as a freebie for the Help for heroes charity raised £150 for them at a non art  / general auction last night. Its a worthy charity and I had no problem at all doing this painting for them as a freebie.

While I may be a pacifist (mostly) I see it as vital that people who have literally risked life and limb for the safety of others are looked after correctly when they can no longer do that job, and not just left to fend for themselves on the streets or worse.  So I had no problem doing this painting when I was asked.

Property of the British army

This one above came as a direct result of the help for heroes painting and was a commission.  Its now in the possession of a British Army regiment and I was given permission to finally show it recently (after doing it some weeks back. )  Thus showing that karma exists, and what goes around does indeed come around.

I've got 3 other commissions done and just waiting on permissions to be able to show at some point.

Leviathan Teaser

Short post this one, I did a bit of work for Ruairi Robinson who was director of the film I worked on as 3d Sup The Last Days on Mars what seems like an ice age back.  This teaser for Leviathan surfaced today and I have to admit its looking rather nice. (Wasn't sure if it had been mothballed or not).  I'm not sure if I can say what I did so I'm going to play it safe and not say a damn thing.
