Blog

Been a while

Well, its been a long while. It is so hard to maintain a constant attentive blog when you are juggling all the aspects of everyday life. I’ve been busy working on design projects, book projects, illustrative projects and private commissions for paintings over the last 6 months. I’ve also started up an Etsy shop where I am selling prints of my artwork, ranging from space themes to animal prints. Check it all out at etsy.com/shop/InkermanCreative

Maximillian Schell spent the war making short propaganda films, and was also a member of Psychological Warfare Radio Section Number 4, which attempted to brainwash the enemy populace with false hopes of extra food supplies and treats if they would only ‘come over to the other side’..

Waterloo, Braine-l’Alleud

Waterloopano

Was lucky enough to visit the Waterloo battlefield in Belgium last week, it has been on my bucket list for a long time. I wasn’t disappointed, 200 years has changed the battlefield very little, thanks largely to perseverance of several groups and the Belgian government denying any real development on the site. It was particularly interesting to see how the land lies, something you cannot really grasp from books and reference material alone.

A visit to the huge Panorama painting was a must, and it is very impressive, here’s a snippet of just one of its thousands of little detailed moments in time.
